  1. HTML

    HTML is the language for describing the structure of Web pages. HTML gives authors the means to:

    * Publish online documents with headings, text, tables, lists, photos, etc.

    * Retrieve online information via hypertext links, at the click of a button.

    * Design forms for conducting transactions with remote services, for use in searching for information, making reservations, ordering products, etc.

    * Include spread-sheets, video clips, sound clips, and other applications directly in their documents.

    With HTML, authors describe the structure of pages using markup. The elements of the language label pieces of content such as “paragraph,” “list,” “table,” and so on.

  2. Processing

    Processing is a programming language, development environment, and online community. Since 2001, Processing has promoted software literacy within the visual arts and visual literacy within technology. Initially created to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach computer programming fundamentals within a visual context, Processing evolved into a development tool for professionals. Today, there are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning, prototyping, and production.

  3. Linux

    What is Linux?

    Linux is, in simplest terms, an operating system. It is the software on a computer that enables applications and the computer operator to access the devices on the computer to perform desired functions. The operating system (OS) relays instructions from an application to, for instance, the computer's processor. The processor performs the instructed task, then sends the results back to the application via the operating system.

    Explained in these terms, Linux is very similar to other operating systems, such as Windows and OS X.

    But something sets Linux apart from these operating systems. The Linux operating system represented a $25 billion ecosystem in 2008. Since its inception in 1991, Linux has grown to become a force in computing, powering everything from the New York Stock Exchange to mobile phones to supercomputers to consumer devices.

  4. Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)

    Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used for describing the look and formatting of a document written in a markup language. While most often used to change the style of web pages and user interfaces written inHTML and XHTML, the language can be applied to any kind of XML document, including plain XMLSVG and XUL.

  5. Flash

    Adobe Flash can find its origins back in some original software named FutureSplash Animator released in 1995. This project combined animated media with vector graphics to create an alternative for Java developers on the web.

    In 1996 this software was purchased by Macromedia. The words “Future” and “Splash” were combined to create the more familiar “Flash”. The whole software suite was devoted towards creating animations and dynamic content which could be published on the Internet. There wasn’t a whole lot of exciting possibilities until the ActionScript language was paired with the software.

    The released of Flash 4 in 1999 included an overhaul of the scripting language. Developers could target graphics on the screen and call functions to animate them throughout different frames. It’s arguable that ActionScript was one of the defining programming languages which eventually pushed Flash technology further into the mainstream. By now Flash Player was already somewhat popular and growing very quickly.

  6. PHP

    PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language. PHP code can be simply mixed with HTML code, or it can be used in combination with various templating engines and web frameworks. PHP code is usually processed by a PHP interpreter, which is usually implemented as a web server's native module or a Common Gateway Interface (CGI) executable. After the PHP code is interpreted and executed, the web server sends resulting output to its client, usually in form of a part of the generated web page; for example, PHP code can generate a web page's HTML code, an image, or some other data. PHP has also evolved to include a command-line interface (CLI) capability and can be used in standalone graphical applications.

  7. JavaScript

    JavaScript (JS) is a dynamic computer programming language. It is most commonly used as part of Web browsers, whose implementations allow client-side scripts to interact with the user, control the browser, communicate asynchronously, and alter the document content that is displayed. It is also used in server-side network programming with runtime environments such as Node.js, game development and the creation of desktop

  8. Java

    Java is a general-purpose programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995.
    The two main components of the Java platform are the Java Application Programming Interface, which is a library of Java command lines, and the Java Virtual Machine that interprets Java code into machine language.

    Java can be used by developers to:
    - Write software on one platform and run it on any other platform.
    - Create programs that can run within a web browser and access available web services.
    - Develop server-side applications for online forums, stores, polls, and more.
    - Combine applications or services using the Java language to create customized applications or services.
    - Write applications for mobile phones, remote processors, wireless modules, sensors, and practically any other electronic device.

  9. Mac OS X

    OS X is Apple Inc.'s current Mac OS line of operating systems. Although, under its original name of Mac OS X, it was officially designated as simply "version 10" of the Mac OS, "version 9" has a completely different codebase as well as dramatic changes in user interface. Mac OS had been Apple's primary operating system since 1984, and the family was backward compatible, so OS X could virtualize Mac OS 9 until version 10.5.
