Two positive reviews for Wave Framework in February from the developer blogging community. "I would strongly recommended this framework. It takes time to get used to but it delivers and it is doing it fast." at http://www.gajotres.net/best-available-php-restful-micro-frameworks/ and "Much more powerful." (referring to other micro-frameworks) at http://xybu.me/a-comparison-of-php-micro-frameworks/

Using a framework does not help your code today - it helps your code tomorrow. #philosophy #programming #php

I know, but keeping a minimum viable product in mind and taking into account how development is conducted in China, at first it does not matter to get something out of the door today that gets you clients and attention and that's where frameworks are often neglected for the wrong reasons.

Toyota is often mentioned for its Toyota Production System - a system that guarantees quality and efficient design and testing process and is a precursor to 'Lean' manufacturing and development. A lot of software companies aspire to this approach, but how does it affect integrity of Lean methodology now that the process - that Lean is based on - is a failure of these very principles?

It's really rare for Ars Technica to be so off-target in their apparent sensationalist headline. Android is an open source operating system. Google apps are not open source - because Google is not a charity company offering free applications. They are a business.

Android is and always will be an open source operating system and Google has no 'iron grip' on Android itself. It has, however, iron grip over its own ecosystem and applications that are built on Android, but which are not part of Android itself.

It really is that simple, Ars.

Completely agree.  If you don't like the Google flavor of Android, go fork yourself. ;)

Always great to get noticed by a well known developers portal :)

Interesting read, even though I do not agree with all the points. Article also includes some good links to other opinions. https://medium.com/learning-to-code/565fc9dcb329

Is it just me, or are the faces that show up on Google Analytics home page really in-your-face and creepy? #Google #Analytics

One of the notable features in the upcoming 3.8.0 will be an improvement to dynamic image loading (and the internal WWW_Imager class). Not only is it better protected against possible malicious attacks, but it will also allow you to do fancy things like adding rounded corners to an image on the fly. This allows you to easily create nice avatars for user-uploaded images without ever having to worry about editing the avatar pictures yourself. Take a look at the example at: http://www.waher.net/w/resources/images/nocache&400x200&nw40&se190&ne10&aa4&liisu.jpg

Is anyone else bothered by the faulty anti-alias/blur the letter L in Google logo in the newer versions of Google Chrome? #Chrome

I'm more annoyed by their color-switching-loading-circle because it loops only blue-red-yellow-green and not blue-red-yellow-blue-green-red as their logo goes

The biggest secret BitDefender does not want you to know (posts that say this are removed from their forums) is that the only thing you need to get around their so-called 'anti-theft' computer locking feature is just to boot your system with a USB and repair Windows. And everything will be back to the way it was. My brother could do it. And he is 10.

Good job BitDefender. Good job.

Introduction
Welcome!

I am natural born Aries, I went through military service and obtained a degree in Computer Science in the University of Tallinn, Estonia. I am working as a developer in the fields of internet media, creating applications like the one you are using right now.

I am an entrepreneur, open-source contributor and a lead developer of Wave Framework - an open source API-centric PHP micro-framework.

I also consult developers and start-ups, so if you need help with anything, let me know.
Bragging rights
I am an evangelist of API-centric development and there's not a day in my life when I am not developing a web or mobile service start-up project.

Great atmosphere and one of the best places to hold small group dinners and birthday gatherings. Plenty of food and good prices. Great place to eat at before movies - cinema is nearby.

The best hotel in Tallinn. The only issue is that the double-deluxe rooms have windows facing courtyard, but other than that it is great.

Wonderful atmosphere, if only food was up to the standard in terms of how much they ask for it.

By far my favorite high-end restaurant in not just in Tallinn, but in Estonia. If you have not tried the duck-salad yet, then you don't know what you are missing.
