Setting up PHP Development environment in a Virtual Machine

Posted by on in iDevelop, PHP | 12 comments

I’ve been meaning to move my local development stack to a VM for sometime now. The hardware has come a long way and running a Linux server as a Virtual Machine with 1-2 GB of RAM allocated to it doesn’t break any sweat today. Setting up the development stack inside a VM has many advantages like you can mimic the production environment of your website/app, have more than one type of server environment on a single computer & OS, etc. I’m not going into details of it, everyone has their own preferences, running the setup directly on your computer has worked well so far & still works, so if you don’t feel like going the VM way then that’s cool too! 🙂

Looking back.....

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 0 comments

….. 8 years down the line and 6 years of hibernation, feels kinda weird that I kinda let this go into hibernation just 2 years after I started here, not because I didn’t have time but because something else caught my attention. As it happened, I was enjoying blogging in Hindi so much that the priorities just shifted without any effort towards the action & I let this blog just go into a slumber. And there’s a shift now again, I don’t blog much these days, in Hindi or English, heck, even my Photo blog doesn’t see much action! And then there’s this craving, an itch at the back of the head, to write here again, I surely didn’t stop working/coding all these years, doesn’t feel right that I should stop writing then. 🙂

The need for speed!!

Paul Jones has posted the results of his benchmark on speed of different PHP Frameworks here. He has benchmarked four frameworks; CakePHP, Solar, Symfony and Zend Framework. The benchmark was fairly simple, just outputting a “Hello World” string without any bells & whistles of the frameworks involved.

What's important??!!

Posted by on in PHP, Serious Jokes | 0 comments

I’ve been away for quite a while from this part of world, mean that I’m writing here on this blog of mine after 6 months, well a day more than 6 months to be exact!! No need for explanations, everyone’s got life, I found mine as well!! 😉

But what I’m amazed at is that some people just don’t have it or are too much frustrated with their own lives that they just crib about everything else they don’t like!! One example can be seen at this CodeIgniter vs. CakePHP thread in the CI forums. While some people really said why they didn’t like CakePHP & what they found good or better in CI, some of the crowd didn’t miss a beat to give their piece of mind about how badly CakePHP sucks and some went even as far as enlightening us how Ruby on Rails, Django, Turbogears, Python etc. suck!!! 🙄 These are people who never do anything worthwhile and their life passes by without a blink.

Which PHP Framework?

Posted by on in iDevelop, PHP | 20 comments

Which PHP Framework is right for you? There seems to be an uprising in the world of PHP frameworks ever since the formidable Ruby on Rails took the programming world by storm, catapulting the quiet Ruby domain into limelight!! Ever since, new PHP Frameworks of all sizes and shapes(slow/fast, bloated/neat, simple/complex, light/heavy, rawking/suckerfish) seem to be popping up now and then and a lot of them seem to be modelled after RoR aka Ruby on Rails.
