    Using AMFPHP with AS3 and CodeIgniterCodeigniter
    1 shares
    It seems that the AMFPHP project has now been laid to rest, unfortunately it never made it past the 1.9 beta version and nor did the tutorials. However, Adobe didn't give up on it that easily and with the new Flex compilers they've included the AMF3 object encoding! Good news for all you Flexers, but it's a different story for all you AS3'ers. Flex allows you to quickly and simply build a service that will interact with your AMFPHP code, but you have to get your hands dirty with AS3. So, I've decided that it's time there's a decent set of classes out there that help Bob build a site with AS3 using the AMFPHP gateway. And to throw some more dirt into the mix, we'll be integrating AMFPHP with CodeIgniter so that we have a fantastic PHP framework for the backend.Read More…

This tutorial introduces you to the basics of retopo in Blender, including how to use the extrude feature, the paint tool, and some of the quirks of retopo in general.

    2009 .NET Awards - Please Vote For Us!200x200
    Envato is honored to have been nominated in three different categories for the 2009 .NET Awards: "blog of the year," "vodcast of the year," and "podcast of the year!" In the 1.5 years since Nettuts+ launched, we've strived to bring you the best web development tutorials available. If you've found them to be helpful, would you mind taking a moment to vote for us? I did so myself, and finished in about twenty seconds. Remember: you don't have to vote for every category. If you'd prefer, you can simply vote in one category (or 3) and press "Submit." I won't lie. For my own vanity, I'd love to win in the "Best Vodcast" category. If you benefited from the "CodeIgniter From Scratch", "jQuery For Absolute Beginners", and "Diving into PHP" video series' (or any other video tut of ours), please show your thanks with a quick vote. I'd appreciate it very much. We're nominated for "Vodcast of the Year," "Blog of the Year (TUTSPLUS)", and "Podcast of the Year (FreelanceSwitch)." Thanks in advance, everyone - and a big thank you goes out to .NET magazine. Read More…
