Lightroom Tutorial Lesson 2

Welcome to Lesson 2 of our Lightroom walk-through. Now that you have a general idea of how the interface works, it’s time to get down and dirty with the individual modules.

Make OOP Classes in JavaScript

Anyone who has tinkered with the Prototype model in JavaScript to produce classes as we know them in other languages has generally left web programming all together and taken up a career as a bus driver. There are a coterie of frameworks designed specifically to address this problem. But what if you’re not wild about frameworks, preferring instead to build tools specifically suited to your needs and style? For you, there is some black magic that can revolutionize the way you interact with the current JavaScript standard (someone please thaw me out when the 2.0 standard is implemented in June 2134, or whatever the projected date is).

Apache is a freely available, and highly popular, open-source web server.

Originally, Apache was designed for Unix. Now versions are available for most operating systems including Windows, OSX and Linux. There are also numerous add-ons and tailored versions of the server using the Apache module API. The name Apache comes from its origins as a series of “patch files.”

Read Webmonkey’s Apache for Beginners article for more details about Apache.

Information and downloads can be found at the Apache Software Foundation website.

DHCP is useful in homes with several computers sharing a single high-speed internet connection.
