WordPress, the most popular blogging tool ever that I’ve ever known. Everybody who writes blogs mostly use it as their blogging tool, either it is from WordPress.com or WordPress.org. Wait! Are there two wordpresses? Yes, there are. However, both are really WordPress original. Then, what’s the difference and why are there two? Let me throw away all the confusion below.

WordPress.com

WordPress.com is a commercial enterprise website with full-time developers, designers and support agents. Using WordPress.com, you can setup your blogs easier and free of charge. You get your own wordpress subdomain like xxx.wordpress.com by just signing up an account. Then, everything is taken care for you, including setup, upgrades, backups, and security.

What is even better is that your blog is located on hundreds of servers, meaning that it is impossible to  go down due to high traffic. Your posts are safe too as they are backed up automatically. Additionally, you get extra traffic from blogs of the day and tags or find bloggers that have similar mind to yours using tag and friend surfer.

WordPress.com has secured login using SSL so no one can get your account access even when you use wi-fi. It also offers more than 70 attractive themes that keep adding each day and you’re able to edit the CSS. The only little minus is only you can’t run a custom theme; but honestly, the features are all good.

WordPress.org
On the other hand, WordPress.org  is a free blogging software, which now the latest version is WordPress 2.71. Using this free software, you can create and setup your own blog plus install themes and plugins, run advertisements, edit the database, or even modify the PHP source codes.

And to be able to have all these, you just need a good web host to host your blog site. However, please remember as this is downloadable software, it requires more technical knowledge for you to master in order to set up and run it smoothly.

For backups, you may need to handle your own backups and when there is newer version of WordPress, you need to upgrade the software manually. But don’t worry! Now, there is an auto-updating tool to upgrade it automatically. But when you get very high traffic, you site might possibly go down unless you have a robust web hosting setup and environment.

Briefly speaking, you have now seen that both WordPress.com and WordPress.org have their own features so, you can decide youself the best version for your blogs and articles.

MySQL, available in both UNIX and Windows, is one of the most popular database tools. As the latest version of MySQL, the perfected newer version, MySQL 5.0, provides you with many new features in this popular open source database server. It is incredibly fast, reliable, and easy to use for developers.

WHAT ARE THE NEW FEATURES?

To summarize, it is very simple and easy that MySQL 5.0 has added 4 great new features – trigger, views, data dictionary, and stored procedures. But of course it is not enough to just say those 4 words to describe how outstanding the features are. So, let’s not waste more time and know nothing by getting more!

Trigger

A database trigger is procedural codes that can be executed automatically to respond certain events on database particular tables. It is able to restrict access to specific data, perform logging, or audit data modifications. For the triggers, there are “row triggers” or “statement triggers”.

Row triggers is the action for every row of a table while statement triggers only happens once per INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE statement. And these statement triggers are those that MySQL Database support – INSERT Trigger, UPDATE Trigger, and DELETE Trigger.

Stored Procedures

Stored routines (procedures and functions) are supported in MySQL 5.0. A stored routine or stored procedures are the set of SQL statements that can be stored in the server. Once this has been done, You don’t need to keep re-issuing the individual statements. Instead, you can refer to the stored routine.

Stored routines require the proc table in the mysql database. This table is created during the MySQL 5.0 installation procedure. Once it is installed, users can refer back to any statements stored in the server without having to reissue again with this ability in MySQL 5.0.

Views

In database functionality, the views consist of accessible stored query as a composed virtual table of the result set of queries. And, it is not like some ordinary tables in relational databases, as views do not form the physical schema part.

Views that also include updatable views are available in MySQL Server 5.0. Views are stored queries that when invoked produce a result set. Here, in MySQL 5.0, the views act as a virtual table. You will find this useful for some queries.

Data Dictionary

Data dictionary, as you all may have known, is a centralized repository of information about data such as meaning, relationships to other data, origin, usage, and format. It is also recognized as meta data – the data of the data.

And as you know, this is one of the new additional features in MySQL 5.0 that contains document describing a database or collection of databases that you can access. Wonderful right.

Well, with these four additional features, you will find MySQL 5.0 as even more amazing database server that you  feel hard to resist or choose the other database servers.

It is no longer popular to use .NET framework 2.0. The time has come to use the latest version of .NET framework, the 3.5 version. Released in 2007, it offers many new great features compared to the previous versions, which are really sought after by developers.

Deep integration of Language Integrated Query

Language Integrated Query (LINQ) is the component that adds native data querying capabilities to .NET languages in Microsoft .NET framework 3.5. This is the first new feature you must be looking for. Using this feature, you will be able to write codes in LINQ-enabled languages to filter, specify, and create some types of SQL data projections, collections, XML, and DataSets with the same syntax.

LINQ also allows Visual Basic and C# (new language features in .NET 3.5) developers to access data from XML and relational databases in much simpler and faster way to code with less error and easier to maintain or debug.

.NET Framework 3.5, ASP.NET, AJAX

As everybody knows, ASP.NET AJAX offers you the ability to create quick, efficient, interactive, and highly personalized web experiences workable in all the most popular web browsers.  Unfortunately, earlier, ASP.NET AJAX should be a separate download installed on the top of ASP.NET 2.0.

However, with the beginning era of .NET Framework 3.5 release, all of these features are built-in within ASP.NET, which saves much of your time as there is no need anymore to download and install ASP.NET AJAX separately in application development.

The ASP.NET AJAX version built in .NET 3.5 provides a number of nice improvements  too- including support for using UpdatePanels with WebParts, WCF based JSON end-points, the ASP.NET Profile, Role and Login Application Services using JavaScript, performance improvements, and also fixes for bugs.

Full Support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2008

As the latest release of Microsoft’s best developer product, Visual Studio 2008 is there to provide many new great important features to help most developers to access data. Hand in hand with .NET framework 3.5, Visual studio 2008 complete .net with some .NET improvements – including Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), updated to support the growing popularity of REpresentational State Transfer (REST) much better.

The .NET framework 3.5 itself offers full support for Visual Studio 2008 like Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Windows CardSpace including the new workflow-enabled services technology.

Well, considering there are so many outstanding new features from the new .NET framework 3.5, who will not look for it? Even I , myself, find it so wonderful after knowing the features. So, let’s get ourselves to use it for better result.
