New Technologies and What They Mean To You: Part 3 (Page 1 of 4 )
There is something to be said for the sharing of knowledge. While this isnít a massive world-wide project like the first dictionary or encyclopedia, Iíd like to think it will have a use, in spite of me. This article series is about the sharing of knowledge, and has been called ďThe Encyclopedia of Web TechnologiesĒ.
I only wish I could be quite that exhaustive, however since Iíve already written more than 100 pages of text I figure why stop now! This time around we will continue look at Server-Side Scripting languages, which, without sounding glib, allow you to add some form of basic intelligence to your website.
We will continue to look at technologies which enable you to make HTML, CSS and JS dynamically and in an automated manner.
There are many sites like Ebay, and your local Search Engine, which use Server-Side Programming to automatically create the pages you asked for, the way you asked for them. Each of the technologies in our last article, and again in this one, can really do "anything" and it is really up to the programmer to measure the advantages and disadvantages in relation to the current project.
