Studioweb:  Teach HTML, CSS, JavaScript and PHP easily –  learn more

Welcome to!


I created this website to teach PRACTICAL PHP to non-nerd web designer types. Because of the
nature of the Web today (Web 2.0, Ajax, shopping carts etc …), PHP is now one of the key

  • Using a Microservice to extend the lifespan of old apps

    March 10, 2016

    If you have an old app that works, but it has some problem spots, it might make sense to use microservices to fix these issues. Sometimes rewriting core modules or classes in an old app, is just not feasible. In these cases, using a microservice to bypass the old code is the way to go. …
