Blogging is massive, with literally hundreds of millions of blogs published daily on innumerable topics containing nearly every field of human interest or information. Our bloggers at WebDevNews and Attackr focus generally on web design, graphic art, and web development issues. Many of them build their own blog sites, or use Open Source tools such as WordPress for the architecture. We follow trends in blogging, generally as they relate to site design and software, and are constantly searching for new writers and technicians to blog on the sites. If you have a love of blogging and an interest in web design and development, open an account at WebDevNews or Attackr and post your articles, reviews, and tutorials with us.
- Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is leading the next generation of web development, with applications running from the network rather than the desktop. This opens up many new possibilities for developers, and allows businesses and individuals to save the costs of investing in expensive proprietary applications. WebDevNews and Attackr follow the new developments and technological advances that are fueling the growth of cloud computing, and are looking for industry specialists to blog about the medium on our sites. If you work in cloud computing application development or server administration, please sign up for an account with WebDevNews or Attackr and publish your reviews and best practices to the community.
- Content Management Systems
CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, are used in positioning the elements of a web page through div, class, and id tags, as well as setting the margins, padding, and spacing of text and images. CSS commands also control text size, font style, display formatting, and other important aspects of building a web page. Our CSS experts at WebDevNews and Attackr build sites daily using CSS stylesheets, and post their best practices and design tips to the site through articles and tutorials. If you are looking for more information on CSS design, or have some tips to share, check the pages at WebDevNews and Attackr for resources or post your own on your blog.

- Graphic Art
A graphic artist works with pixels and LCDs as a traditional artist would work with paint and canvas. Graphic artists may focus on creating logos, digital compositions, animations, or 3-D virtual worlds, they may build publications, GUIs, web pages, videos, or games. There is a huge amount of flexibility and freedom in creating artwork in the digital medium, much of which is still untapped and growing as the new media expands and becomes more powerful. WebDevNews and Attackr invite graphic artists to share their techniques and best practices with the larger community to help others become more creative and efficient. We also follow the companies who produce graphic art software, their products, and services, and post reviews that should be of interest to people working in the field of graphic art.
- Graphic Design
Graphic design involves the digital processing of text, images, photographs, logos, video, and animation in ways that are similar to traditional printing and publication methods, but made exponentially more dynamic and powerful by the new media environment. Graphic designers typically work with programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Pagemaker, Illustrator, InDesign, or Quark, to create publications, and the basic elements of graphic design, text, images, and logos, are incorporated into web pages through HTML and other programming languages. WebDevNews and Attackr publish blog posts from graphic designers working daily in the industry, along with updated news and developments from the companies that produce the software. Check WebDevNews and Attackr for helpful tutorials and online guides that simplify graphic design techniques and processes, or post your own on a blog on the sites.
- IT Industry
The Information Technology Industry has led to a total reorganization of economic, business, and social relationships in the late 20th and early 21st century. It is one of the most significant historical advances in human development, and has been compared to the revolutions following the invention of the printing press or the internal combustion engine in impact on human civilization. By most accounts, IT looks to exceed even that, and its development has been charted as growing at exponential rates. WebDevNews and Attackr follow events and breaking news in the IT Industry, reporting on new software, corporate developments, web standards, and IT trends, keeping you informed.

Outsourcing involves the use of specialized firms or companies to provide core services like software development, IT management, or customer service for a business, often with the goal of reducing costs or employing specialists on a limited time basis, rather than hiring them directly as part of the company. Offshoring, the outsourcing of business processes to companies located abroad, has seen a huge increase in the last 10 years as the internet has enabled companies to work internationally as easily as with employees in the next-door office or cubicle. Our bloggers at WebDevNews and Attackr work inside the outsourcing industry, and post insightful commentaries about increasing effectiveness through the use of this business model. If you are working in outsourcing, either as a service provider or a service buyer, sign up for an account and blog your insight on WebDevNews and Attackr.
PHP is a programming language that forms one of the cornerstones of the LAMP environment (Linux-Apache-mySQL-PHP). As it is processed by the server hosting the files of a web site, it requires a server-side interpreter that reads and executes files written in the language that are stored in a traditional web directory. PHP drives many of the dynamic web sites that characterize Web 2.0, from Content Management Systems, to blogs, forums, and ecommerce sites. Our bloggers at WebDevNews and Attackr work with PHP programming and web design, and post news and information which gives insight into best practices. Please check the site regularly for the latest updates and industry news related to PHP web development.
Scripts are bits of code or full applications that can be integrated into an existing web site or CMS, or run on their own to add new functionality. Some scripts run from server side processing while others are operated by the browser. Our developers and writers at WebDevNews and Attackr work with scripts on a daily basis, and some write their own for clients and the Open Source community. If you are looking for news and information regarding scripts, or have some good 'how to' guides in how to install or manage them, please consider sharing your knowledge with the developer community by blogging on WebdevNews and Attackr.
- Search Engine Optimization
Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, involves the enhancement of the structure of a web site to serve content in a way that is favorable to placing highly on the results pages of a search engine query. Users typically type â€œkeywordsâ€ into a search engine to find information, and SEO involves placing keywords in the meta-tags, description, URLs, and sections of a web site that they can be browsed, indexed, and ultimately found more easily by a user using a search engine to navigate. Our web designers and developers at WebDevNews and Attackr regularly post information and articles on SEO ï¾“best practicesï¾” along with reviews of software that helps SEO specialists get the job done. We invite anyone involved with professional SEO work to post their articles, reviews, and tutorials to a blog on the sites to benefit the community of developers online.
- Semantic Web
The semantic web has become a synonym for Web 3.0, the next generation of internet development. Based upon new systems of tagging information to allow data to be processed intelligently by machines, the semantic web is driven by The Resource Description Framework (RDF) and its microformats, as well as web ontology languages. WebDevNews and Attackr focus on keeping in touch with the latest developments in this breaking field, and regularly post articles, information, and reviews on cloud computing and the standards and businesses driving its development.
