How to integrate your instagram pictures with php
Ever looked for a straightforward way to integrate you instagram pictures on your website? Without a plugin nor an iframe? Well this article featured on the NOE interactive's blog presents how you can do so with PHP.
It's a neat and simple solution that uses the instagram's API to get a particular users' latest pictures, and then display them in a ul list.
It is accessible to most developers as it is a "personalize, copy and paste" kind of solution. Just two steps are required, configuration, and implementation.
In this article featured on NOE interactive, you'll learn how you can install the solution on your website. There's a complete step by step guide as well as a demonstration. If you wish to download the solution, it's also hosted on Github.

Always being on the lookout for tools and methods that would help a development team industrialise its processes, I got interested into Continuous Delivery and Continuous Integration.
On of the leading tools of this field being Jenkins, I setup an instance to get started.
Here's some feedback on my experience.
Disclaimer : I'm not a Jenkins nor CI expert, this is just a retranscription of my wanderings, hoping it would serve a fellow developer out there.
PayPal is a renowned payment platform that allows you to accept online payments on your site, by taking care of all the money transactions for you. This transparency really is an appreciated quality that allows developers to integrate checkout solutions on merchant sites, by completely outsourcing the banking operations to PayPal.
Another good thing for developers is that the PayPal API is very versatile. It can be very simple if your needs are simple, or it can be very well customized to meet some more advanced needs such as complete shopping carts handling. On the other hand, I sometimes find this API not really user friendly as it works with forms, which fields are not always very intuitive. In other words, depending on the form you are building, you get a different service from PayPal.
In order to get a friendlier and also more generic solution, I wrote a PayPal manager in PHP. This tutorial will show you how you can benefit from this PHP class to integrate PayPal checkouts faster and in a much simpler way.
WordPress and jQuery are both very famous for their plugins. In the case of jQuery, plugins allow developers to extend the library's capacities in order to create beautiful effects. In WordPress, they allow anyone to benefit from the work of others, as they come under the form of a module that you can easily activate from within the administration interface, and start using right away.
Creating one of those modules is not that difficult, but if you are not familiar with their syntax, it could end up being a headache. There are many jQuery plugins that have been transferred into a WordPress one already, but what can you do when it is not the case? How do you do when you have found the perfect jQuery plugin for your latest site, but it is not yet available as a WordPress plugin?
In this tutorial, we'll see how you can easily create a WordPress plugin from a jQuery one. We'll review what a jQuery, or a WordPress plugin is actually made of, so we'll find the elements they both have in common. From there, we'll show how it leads us to perform some simple operations to allow us to benefit from our jQuery plugins in a WordPress template.
