Empower your development team with WampServer

If there’s one thing that I know well, its software development and the web.  While its not as easy as some people might think, its tools like WampServer that make things a heck of a lot easier than they could be. WampServer is a web based development environment for Windows, and its easy to use and admin.

Having a reliable development environment for your web apps isn’t just about a decent XML/HTML editor.  You need a web server to help you view your pages and see how they would react in the wild.  WampServer is a Windows web development environment. It allows you to create web applications with Apache2, PHP and a MySQL databases and then test them to insure they function correctly.

The functionality of a web server is to allow for the surfing or browsing of web pages. In order for that to happen, they have to be served up, or made available to the file browser.  This is WampServer’s main function. I’m not going to go into additional details here.  However, from an administration point, which is where Devs and Dev Managers will be concerned, WampServer’s easy to use.

With a left click on WampServer’s tray icon, you will be able to manage your Apache and MySQL services.  This gives your applications access to both web and database services so that specific pages can be displayed and database elements called and written to from them.  You can switch services online or offline, giving access to a broader audience or only to the localhost, or I should say, to yourself.

IcoFX 2 the all-in-one solution for icon creation

IcoFX is a cursor editor, an all-in-one solution for icon creation, extraction and editing. It is designed to work with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Macintosh icons supporting transparency. A very useful tool for creating your own icons from the scratch.

IcoFX became very popular from the beginning due to its freeware distribution, but the project remain silent for a few years. Now the Romanian developer decided to launch version 2.0, which is definitely an improved version of its predecessor but has its own price. And I’m talking about $59. In case you want to try it out, you can download for free a trial version which runs only 15 times before going into the demo mode with the save option disabled.

At a first glance, IcoFX 2.0 comes with a new interface that brings in front the most usable tools and brushes. A new insertion is definitely the magic wand and the fact that you can now create layer based images. It allows you to rearrange, blend layers and change their opacity. All these thanks to the own proprietary IFX format.

Previous IcoFX versions were rich in features due to free modules such as AniFX (which was able to create animated cursors). But with the new version of IcoFX, these separate modules have disappeared and all their content has been brought altogether in a single interface. Question is, do we want to pay for a slightly improved version, or we go back to the latest free version which has enough features already?
