Technology Transfer
 
Window on Innovation, Technology Transfer & Services.
Your key to the expertise, services and know-how available in the Higher Education Sector, Research Institutes, and Services Organisation.
Technology Transfer

Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia define Technology Transfer as “the process of transferring skills, knowledge, technologies, methods of manufacturing, samples of manufacturing and facilities among governments or universities and other institutions to ensure that scientific and technological developments are accessible to a wider range of users who can then further develop and exploit the technology into new products, processes, applications, materials or services.” Indeed, Individual, SMEs, and Organisation continually requires help on daily problem solving, advice and consultancy on their own projects, R&D work, and/or simply requires low/high tech services; Expert Grabber is a tool to bridge this gap by collecting in single dBase the contact details and the profile, and affiliations of wide range of experts and skilled individuals to be accessed and contacted directly; hopefully, this will help and enhance, in a modest way, the process of Technology Transfer and bring “new” expertise, skills, and services to the marketplace on very competitive price.

Responsive Web Design
 

Responsive Web Design (RWD) is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).

Responsive Web Design Tutorial There are five languages/frameworks, web developers must acquire the knowledge, know-how and the ability of using theme effectively in designing Web pages::

1.  HTML: Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is a standardised system for tagging text files to achieve font, colour, graphic, and hyperlink effects on World Wide Web (WWW) pages. It is widely used to define and position the content of static web pages,

2.   CSS: Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used for describing the look and formatting of a document written in a markup language, and to specify the layout of web pages, particularly div class containers, and media queries are CSS3 module allowing content rendering to adapt to conditions such as screen resolution (e.g. Smart phone screen vs. computer screen),

3.   PHP:  Personal Home Page (PHP) is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language. PHP (powered by the Zend Engine). After the PHP code is interpreted and executed, the web server sends resulting output to its client, usually in form of a part of the generated web page. PHP code can be simply mixed with HTML. It is widely used to manage Web database, community and E-commerce website projects,

4.   Bootstrap:  is a free and open-source collection of tools for creating websites and web applications. It contains HTML- and CSS-based design templates for typography, forms, buttons, navigation and other interface components, as well as optional JavaScript extensions. The bootstrap framework aims to ease web development. Bootstrap is a front end, that is an interface for the user, unlike the server-side code which resides on the "back end" or server. It is also a web application framework, that is a software framework which is designed to support the development of dynamic websites and web applications, and

5.   JavaScript: is an object-oriented computer programming language commonly used to create interactive effects within web browsers, is often used to make dynamic and interactive web pages. It runs on your visitor's computer (client server) and doesn't require constant downloads from your website.

Photoshop Tutorials
 

Photoshop: "From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopaedia", Adobe Photoshop is a raster graphics editor developed and published by Adobe Systems for Windows and Mac OS.

Photoshop was created in 1988 by Thomas and John Knoll. Since then, it has become the de facto industry standard in raster graphics editing, such that the word "Photoshop" has become a verb as in "to Photoshop an image," "photo shopping," and "Photoshop contest," etc. It can edit and compose raster images in multiple layers and supports masks, alpha compositing and several colour models including RGB, CMYK, Lab colour space, spot colour and duotone. Photoshop has vast support for graphic file formats but also uses its own PSD and PSB file formats which support all the aforementioned features. In addition to raster graphics, it has limited abilities to edit or render text, vector graphics (especially through clipping path), 3D graphics and video. Photoshop's feature set can be expanded by Photoshop plug-ins, programs developed and distributed independently of Photoshop that can run inside it and offer new or enhanced features.

Photoshop's naming scheme was initially based on version numbers. However, in October 2002, following the introduction of Creative Suite branding, each new version of Photoshop was designated with "CS" plus a number; e.g., the eighth major version of Photoshop was Photoshop CS and the ninth major version was Photoshop CS2. Photoshop CS3 through CS6 were also distributed in two different editions: Standard and Extended. In June 2013, with the introduction of Creative Cloud branding, Photoshop's licensing scheme was changed to that of software as a service and the "CS" suffixes were replaced with "CC". Historically, Photoshop was bundled with additional software such as Adobe Image Ready, Adobe Fireworks, Adobe Bridge, Adobe Device Central and Adobe Camera RAW.

Alongside Photoshop, Adobe also develops and publishes Photoshop Elements, Photoshop Light room, Photoshop Express and Photoshop Touch. Collectively, they are branded as "The Adobe Photoshop Family". It is currently a licensed software.
