Discover PHP 5.4

Finally i had the time to have a look at PHP 5.4, as i heard it had built in web server ( a cool feature for a windows user).

To shortly describe my requirements: a on demand webserver for Windows systems that would understand php, would allow easy configuration, a rewrite mechanism and preferably would not require any install process. All the criteria above were successfully implemented in php 5.4 as explained here. Continue reading Discover PHP 5.4

Adobe WebUp #3

And there it is was Adobe WebUp #3 and there were some great speakers that explained how to write javascript more efficiently and very, very quickly.

They presented:

  • GWT, described as a good solution for enterprise application
  • CoffeeScript, a tool that helps you write js using “shortcuts”.
  • BusinessCatalyst, an “Online Business solution” – as presented by Adobe, a solution for small companies that want to have a great online experience.(not ready for bigger online business solution – missing option to write your own modules or integrating with external server side services) – Presentation slides
  • And the coolest thing i ever seen “Debugging Mobile WebSites & Apps”, where they presented Adobe Shadow, an end to end solution for debugging on webkit based mobile device tool, based on weinre. – Presentation slides

Also they allowed other companies to present open positions (not only in Adobe) – how cool is that?

I strongly advise to keep an eye for the WebUp presentations on as they intend to present other cool topics in next editions.

Experience with Linux on Core iX with ATI video laptops

Until a few days ago i owned a HP Pavilion DV3-4071ee, a very nice 13” laptop with a Core i5(first generation) and with switchable graphics from ATI that came with Windows 7 Home Premium. All programs i was using day by day were running with decent speed. Main problem came when i had to work on a symfony based project. Previously i had to work on a Drupal project and at that time, after a thorough reading i decided to go with a IIS instalation with the PHP that it’s offered by WPI.

Mare grija cand alegeti numele domeniului!

Mare grija cand alegeti numele domeniului! :)) Extract din wikipedia:
Intercapping is often used to emphasize the meaning of a domain name. However, DNS names are case-insensitive, and some names may be misinterpreted in certain uses of capitalization, creating slurls. For example: Who Represents, a database of artists and agents, chose, which can be misread as whore presents. Similarly, a therapists’ network is named In such situations, the proper meaning may be clarified by use of hyphens in the domain name. For instance, Experts Exchange, a programmers’ discussion site, for a long time used, but ultimately changed the name to

Genial! =))

iPhone and Android = iDroid

I just installed iDroid(Android 2.2) on my iPhone 3G. I must note that this is my first encounter with Android 2.

Beside the disadvantages given by the fact that it’s not a native environment(camera not working, 3G internet doesn’t seem to be working, buttons seems a bit strange, no sound support for alerts) there is one more issue: Android Market is missing.

As a pro i can say that sync with Gmail is very easy and works pretty good. The emails are rendered extremely fast 😮

As a final conclusion i think it works pretty good on a native system, but before i get one i’ll make one more test on a HTC Diamond that is somewhere in the house… relaxing…

M-am intors ca sa vorbesc despre un nou proiect la care m-am gândit, un site ce va permite aflarea a diverse informatii despre ip-ul public sau despre domenii(nu ofera înca informatii despre domenii, mai aveti rabdare 2-3 zile).

Scopul este mai mult didactic decat practic, avand in vedere ca exista deja pe piata o multime de servicii de genul asta.

Daca aveti sugestii astept comentariile voastre.
