Android Development: Styling Google Maps

Google has a reputation for making development easier and efficient for developers who use their tools and APIs with detailed documentations and well taught free courses. I recently tried implementing styling and reducing how much information is shown on a map via android. My initial approach was to figure out how to remove certain elements from the maps api instance I was using at runtime.

5 Reasons You Should Try The Laravel PHP Framework

I have been a php developer for 2 years now and in that time I never used a Framework. I was obsessed with learning many programming languages, but after almost a year, I decided to concentrate on being a web app developer, using primarily PHP. PHP is awesome and it is one language I understand extremely well and can express myself, just like JAVA, but I still prefer PHP. A friend of mine introduced me to the PHP Codeigniter framework, and I decided to try it.   I started learning and the documentation was absolutely fantastic. It took me a ...
