Google delivers tons of information on a mailto: usage level. My previous attempts to find more information about the technical background were not successful. That's why i hope to get some clues for a more specific google request.
I'm a bit new here (obviously), but I found the site while looking into the S3 access via c#. I think, before I dig too deep into c#, I should look more at what might be the best language to write a program in for accessing the S3 bucket.
What I'm looking for is a good, cross-platform language that I can create a user friendly GUI for that can access an Amazon S3 bucket (the Gui wouldn't need to display the bucket, just the background coding would need to access it in order to determine what the GUI should display/do). I found the .net framework for other OS like Mac OSX, Linux, etc. that's called Mono but was wondering if anyone had any other recommendations that might be better suited to the task, more cross-platform friendly, and/or easier to program for, yet still secure enough I wouldn't need to do too much extra security oriented programming to prevent unauthorized access to the S3 bucket.
To put it simply; does anyone see any reason I should go with another language other than c# since I'm working with non-windows based OSes?
I am a novice at building websites and considering to make one. But there is a lot of confusion that's going on right now. I guess every beginner faces them. Few questions that come up are:
2. Hosting. When i am choosing the host, what considerations i have to keep in mind ? What support do i need from them (other than getting some important space obviously!).
3. I am considering of making the website in ruby on rails. I don't know about php and what effect it would have if i choose ruby over php. I thought about ruby just because its new and i dont want to learn some thing "not new"! :P Moreover what is a framework and how does a framework effect my development process?
These three questions are just to explain my "confusion" better. There is obviously a lot more to it. Just to try to answer how the flow of website development goes keeping in mind my questions!
If your interests are towards PHP/MySQL, then this book is a good one. "Beginning PHP and MySQL: From Novice to Professional, Fourth Edition by W. Jason Gilmore" ISBN-13 (pbk): 978-1-4302-3114-1 Apress
If your interests are Microsoft technologies, you can get tutorials and downloads from here, and they are a good resource http://www.asp.net/[^]
In terms of hosting, it would not be appropriate to direct you to any particular organisation until you decide which technology you wish to develop for.
In terms of Ruby, see my reply in the thread below here for references.
Now you have to decide on HTML version 4 or go straight to HTML version 5.
As far as ASP.Net, PHP, and Sun Java I don't know about Ruby, that's a personal choice.
I use to write in PHP, but dumped it for ASP.Net. Sort of wish I would of went Sun Java instead.
It feels like yesterday (about 5 years ago when i was exactly in the same spot you find yourself).
The advise posted www.asp.net is an excellent place to start. but here to answer your questions.
2. Depending on your technology , your hosting will vary , if you wish to host asp.net you will need a windows server host with .net framework and SQL
3. New does not nessisarily mean better , when you buy a new car you know its better , new in programming languages mean, still limited , expect memory leaks , and very minimal online help available.
ASP.net I recommend above all other server side technologies for web development for this very reason. but for you to be able to use it effectively you will need to familiarise yourself with either C# or VB.NET I highly recommend C#.
also another aspect of web development you will have to be familiar is design , you can get allot of online designs for free aswel (maybe not exactly what you want) but you will need to figure our how to cut those designs up properly and then lay them out in your website. heres the order I recommend you study.
HTML - used for layout
base layout of html page
tags and attrubutes
the style tag
Understanding paths in website (../ and so on)
CSS - Used for styling
importing CSS files
Programming language of choice in asp.net
Familiarise yourself with terms such as postbacks , runat server, server controls id's and the page load order (promise you you are going to use them)
Databasing - SQL Server Designing a database with various data types
Cryptography - Symmetric encryption (advanced topic but usefull
LINQ - theres an entire exction online explaining how to write these queries
Server Side Grids and data sources.
All in server side languages have a long learning curve especially if you have zero programming experience but in the long run they avoid your website from becoming an admin nightmare.
You you simply want a nice easy web page there is also google blogger
I am trying to find some good resources on Ruby On Rails Web Application Development(for example demo project, videos etc) but I could not found. I will be glad for your any suggestion regarding above specially on RoR + SQL server web apps development.
