Viewing the tutorial The Fundamentals of Web Design on Lynda.com has increased my knowledge of the various technological terms. A couple of new terms I would like to share are AJAX and SQL. I have seen those acronyms many times and have always wondered what they are.
So what about SQL? Lately I've been noticing that acronym appear in all of the technology job postings. SQL stands for Structured Query Language. SQL is a standard language used to access data in Database Management Systems. Almost all databases implement the standard version of SQL, making it portable across database management systems.
The tutorial was quite interesting. Each day I viewed it I learned something new. Lynda.com provides great tutorials on web designing. Once I viewed the Fundamentals of Web Design it really got me into viewing other tutorials. I am very interested in learning the Adobe Flash, Illustrator, and Dreamweaver programs. The hard part is just finding the time to do it all. I suppose I will replace my one favorite TV show with viewing tutorials at Lynda.com.
