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.

The Watch is a list of curated quality links about web development. I've been maintaining it for a year now so I thought I would share the results with everyone as this will probably be useful to somebody else. I select the links from Twitter mostly based on their usefulness. They contain interesting reads, points of views, helpful scripts, articles, resources... Well plenty of things worth bookmarking when you are interested in web development.Read more
For the previous years I've been trying to point out the areas of my workflow that were taking most of my time to try to optimise them.
One of these areas was database interactions meaning the famous 'SELECT', 'INSERT', 'UPDATE' and 'DELETE' statements. When I was still discovering PHP, I spent far too much time hard coding every single database query. It was time consuming, but also very annoying.
Then, for a project, I discovered Zend, a powerful PHP framework. I loved the way it handled the queries, by having a database class with predefined methods for each interaction. The only problem was that Zend is far too bulky and complicated for simple projects.
After investigating if there were easier ways of achieving the same results, I am presenting here today a list of my favourites mysql functions, with their brief description and how you can use them. I hope that it will save you time in your future developments like it did for me.
As a lead developer, I watch the web development market for solid trends (not the hype ones), and see if they could be a tangible addition to our workflow. Like Angular a few years ago, React has gained enough momentum to catch my attention. I decided to try it out in a side project to get a better understanding of how it works. Here are a few things I've noted from our first encounter. This is a beginner's point of view, not a React expert's one, so if you see any mistakes, don't hesitate to let me know, I'll update the article accordingly.Read more
