PrestaShop: Creating an Online Store in 2015 Has Never Been Easier

I’ll frankly admit it. I hadn’t heard about PrestaShop before. Though this endeavor got started in 2007 already and even won prices for Best Open-source Business Application in 2010 and 2011, it managed to fly under my radar for all these years. Which is a pity, because had I known PrestaShop earlier, I wouldn’t have broken my wings trying to make a row of competitors work to my satisfaction. But as we all know, it’s never too late. Let me show you that creating an online store in 2015 has never been easier. Learn from my example and look at PrestaShop now, not in a few years. Here’s what makes it stand out from the crowd…

Cartoon: If Web Designers Were Car Salesmen [#002]

People working in the web design and development industry need to become thick-skinned over the years if they intend to survive long term. I am in this business since web design got invented in the early Nineties, and I sure know what I’m talking about when it comes to the hidden secrets of client communication. My remedy these days is laughing. I refuse to get angry anymore. Instead, I make fun of the situations that only a few years ago made me want to hire a professional killer. There are quite a few people out there who are only still alive for the fact I couldn’t afford to pay one. Nah, just joking. As making fun of it all is the healthiest way to cope with it, we decided to start a new cartoon series titled “If Web Designers Were” here at Noupe. This is part two. Hope you enjoy it…

The 9 Best Free HTML Editors for Web Developers (Windows Edition)

If you want to develop a website, you’ll need an HTML editor. You could, of course, use the Windows Notepad to build a website, but that would hardly be convenient, comfortable, or pretty, for that matter. Crucially, a good HTML editor must do two things very well: syntax highlighting (coloration of the code) and autocompletion. Naturally an extra feature or two is welcome: a selection of themes, for example, that would not only accommodate your taste, but also increase your productivity and mitigate fatigue in long bouts of coding. With that, let’s have an impartial look at the nine best free HTML editors for Windows.
