How would you make this type of GUI web app;

Posted 03 July 2014 - 12:49 PM

Hello!
Does anyone know how these web apps were made?
They have buttons and are interactive

http://www.trainear.com/
http://www.vocabulary.com/
www.ixl.com

Can anyone give me an idea of what i need to learn to do this?
Almost done with javascript course(90%); hopefully i will finish today. Then i was thinking jquery?

At what point/language do i learn how to create GUI's for these types of web apps.
Are there any hosts you'd recommend for GUI sites? or will i learn that when i learn PHP? (like godaddy.com type stuff)

I know theres probably some standardized stuff i have yet to learn, just trying to make sure i don't go in the wrong directions at this point.

Thanks for any help.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

If you right click on the app you'll notice it mentions something about adobe flash player. That's pretty much what it is.

Those types of apps are easily done in Javascript and HTML5. Web apps that use flash like Trainear are showing their age and where done in flash as the browser technology did not provide the API's required. That is no longer an issue. Personally I treat servers as dumb database connections and they have very little to do with my apps apart from supplying and recording data.

Keep learning Javascript/HTML/CSS and a little server side scripting (I much prefer ASP (JScript) and SQL over PHP and mySQL)

ASP classic? The one with the last stable release 14 years ago, 2 months before PHP 4 was released? That is old school. Why stick with that?

Not that old at all last release was 2012 Ver 4.5 on Windows Server 2012. Don't know where you get the 14 years old from?

ASP is not ASP.NET.

The final stable release of ASP 3.0 was in January 2000.

ASP.NET for clarification then. Should have said Microsoft IIS 8.0 with Active Server Pages Dot NET framework 4.5, Using Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 Enterprise edition with full pre-compiled deployment. But that's a mouth full.

As a person that has to vacillate between the two - it makes a difference.

As a person who still has to maintain ASP classic/JScript code, it makes a difference to me too. That was the first server-side language I learned, actually.
