The need for speed!!

Posted by on in iDevelop, PHP | 0 comments

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.

coComment It!!

Posted by on in iG:CoComment, WP-Plugins | 11 comments

UPDATE: coComment service is no longer operational, so this plugin is no longer of any practical use. The source is provided just as a reference for archives.

 

I’ve been using coComment for quite sometime now, have seen its pros & cons, it wasn’t upto the least standards that I’d have liked it to be at but everything improves with time and now it certainly is much much better than what it was when I started using it about a month or two back.

Dragged Back!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 0 comments

Its been quite a while since I last posted here(almost a month) and that post was after more than a month as March didn’t see any posts, or to cut a long story short, only 10 posts so far in this year as the fourth month wanes!! Been quite busy so far & whatever little time I got for blogging was consumed by other blogs, its been a struggle managing time. Now if that wasn’t enough, an old contact asked me to write some code in ASP for him to get him out of a spot of bother. I tried unsuccessfully to reason with him that I don’t have time for doing that & that its been about 2 years since I stopped coding in ASP and I’m quite rusty. 😐

Code for Fun!!

Posted by on in iDevelop, iG:Syntax Hiliter, PHP, WP-Plugins | 166 comments

Seeing me freak out at solving maths equations, my mom used to say that solving maths problems is fun once you get the hang of it. I thought that she’s just telling me that to finish up my homework, but I now understand because its not that solving maths has become fun for me but I’ve found coding & solving problems in there to be fun, which apparently some people don’t. So logically speaking, when you get going in something, it starts looking fun to you, whatever it maybe, be it solving maths problems or logical equations while coding or cooking!!

Yahoo User Interface Library!!

Posted by on in iDevelop | 0 comments

There are many Javascript libraries around ranging from purposes of animation effects to allowing easy to cook AJAX applications. Be it Prototype or Rico, SAJAX or anything else, free libraries are available for you to use, gone is the time when you needed to grind your gray cells for hours & days to get that effect or user interface up & running. But what I dislike about all these libraries is that though they get the work done, they are quite difficult to use due to the lack of proper documentation. I know documenting some library or software takes a lot of time & most of the open source projects are done by individuals etc. in their spare time, but then its not of much use to others if there’s no documentation on various aspects as how to use it.

Development Ahead!!

Posted by on in iDevelop, iG:Syntax Hiliter, WP-Plugins | 6 comments

I’ve started looking into the code again for the iG:Syntax Hiliter, hopefully a version will be released by this weekend. 😉 I blogged earlier that the current v3.1.1 might not be compatible with WordPress 2 due some changes that I noted/guessed in the WordPress core since v1.5, but as some users have reported in and as I’ve tested it, iG:Syntax Hiliter v3.1.1 has no problems in working with either a fresh WordPress 2.x install or one upgraded from an older version. 😀 So you may go ahead & upgrade your WordPress installs if you’ve been holding back because of iG:Syntax Hiliter & if you’ve been waiting for the compatible release of iG:Syntax Hiliter to use with your WordPress 2.x install, go ahead and grab the current version & install it, no problems so far!! 😉

Spare that Bullshit!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 0 comments

The IT services sector is booming again(after the dot com burst) & the companies are coming up everywhere to milk the opportunities that lay there for the skilled & daring. The already established companies began hiring again, breathing a new hope in those looking for jobs in this sector as well as in the freshers and students already studying & preparing to take their place in the IT sector!! One of the sub-sectors here is the web enabled services, the designing of web applications and their development to be precise, or as one can say in common tongue, website design and development.
