I wrote a tutorial on setting up dynamic vhosts with Apache and Nginx.
 
Automatic Dynamic Virtual Hosts with Nginx​ and Apache HTTP Server​

Ever had to manually define virtual hosts for your apps? It's a bother, isn't it? Here's how you can easily configure Nginx or Apache to dynamically load them for you - no more manual edits. And with some more magic with an additional tool, you no longer have to touch /etc/hosts either!
Tired of setting up new virtual hosts for every new project? Make your server of choice do it automatically. Bruno Skvorc shows you how.

Cheers for the work involved in aggregating this. I definitely agree that PHP frameworks should not come down to a one horse race. We need several with different approaches. MVC isn't unequivocally the be-all-and-end-all of architectures.

Thought provoking CSS art exhibition about different species and the threat of extinction. Beautifully made, turn the volume up and dive in.
30 species, 30 pieces. In Pieces is an interactive exhibition of 30 of the world’s most interesting but unfortunately endangered species — their survivals laying literally, in pieces. Explore information, facts and figures and download assets of each unique species.

Introduction to R

Wrote a tutorial about the R language (a programming language for statistics) and its IDE, RStudio, preparing the terrain for more in depth stuff later on, when we start to analyze and graph some of SitePoint's survey data.

Data mining is really big these days, and most jobs in the future will have something to do with it. Dig in and revamp your career.
Bruno Skvorc introduces you to the wonderful world of R - a programming language designed specifically for data analysis and plotting. Let's mine some data!

Get a Zend​ Studio or JetBrains​ PhpStorm​ license for answering+resharing a survey!

Guys - this is crazy. We're at 7000+ responses and counting, I cannot WAIT to data mine this. We're now in the final stretch - if you're curious about the results, would you mind resharing this to help us get the widest possible sample of responses? I promise it'll be a valuable insight for everyone - plus you can win IDE licenses and Learnable​ subscriptions :)

Help us out with some useful data? We promise to share the results!

3 UX Failures in Designing an Email Unsubscribe Flow

I wrote a semi-rant about some awful practices in email communication.
It's tempting to get petulant when designing an unsubscribe flow. In some ways you're designing a break-up. Bruno shows you how to take the high road.

Fantastic food, great portions. Looks and feels very local and "cheap" but is actually both affordable and excellent. An amazing pit stop to refuel your stomach. Also, free WiFi hotspot without a login wall - very useful for planning route further.

Best veal steak I ever ate. Comfy, cozy, great wine. Very intimate and somewhat hard to find, but worth it. Also somewhat pricey.

Brilliant service, very friendly and always smiling staff. Great sake, high quality chopsticks, and most importantly, absolutely amazing food. We ate Maki Mori A and Maki Mori B menus, and both were mindblowing.

Chewy and incredibly greasy and fat steak (the worst entrecote ever), unprofessional and unfriendly staff (rolled eyes at our complaint and just left), definitely not worth the money - avoid at all costs.

Excellent Zante Lamb, fantastic meat, very juicy and tasty. Quite a fancy tavern, considering amount of food per euro, but a foodie's heaven. Also, the elusive Alfa beer is on offer here.

Fantastic ethnic food. Highly recommend the "meza for 2". You'll get stuffed with awesomeness.
