Have you worked with PHP for a while but never really made use of objects?

This video explains PHP's OOP-features for people who already have OOP experience in other languages.

Awesome.
 
'Island Time is a very, very real condition, wherein hours and days float by without any schedule or structure to mark them. Most of my friends acclimated to island time easily, gratefully. I was the weird one: toting a laptop around everywhere, asking for Wi-Fi passwords, insisting on being back from trips by Monday at 8 a.m. Whenever a new friend would ask “what do you do?” I liked to say I was head of WIRED’s Caribbean editorial division (technically true). My response yielded nothing short of, “Wait, but what do you really do?”'

VMware out of business soon?

https://blogs.vmware.com/tribalknowledge/2015/07/vmware-aligns-business-mobility-asia-pacific.html Sounds quite promising, so far!

VMware ESXi, in fact, is nothing else, but a Linux kernel 2.4. derived, grsecurity hardened kernel, based on former Bochs, today called KVM / QEMU.

VMware not only faces Canonical's LXC / LXD solution as direct competitor, but also a lawsuit by FSF and Christoph Hellwig, because of GNU copyright violation: http://sfconservancy.org/news/2015/mar/05/vmware-lawsuit/

GNU license forces them to open their sources. So, it's just a question of months, until VMware will have to open up their Linux GPL code.

There are clear indications showing, that VMware, in fact, is using Linux kernel and KVM:

The "VENOM" security bug is a serious threat for VMware, Xen, KVM: http://venom.crowdstrike.com/: Surprisingly no threat for AppArmor hardened LXC containers.

That nasty "VENOM" buffer overflow can be forced while copying data from the network buffer of the hosting machine into the buffers of the guest machines. And that 'shoveling mechanism' also exists in VMware, Xen, KVM, QEMU, Bochs, Oracle VirtualBox virtualization solutions.

As expected, VMware is offering a patch: http://thecybersecuritysentinel.blogspot.de/2015/07/us-cert-alert-vmware-releases-security.html

Here a proof of concept, an "exploit" by famous "solar designer": http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2015/05/13/29

But not only VMware, KVM, Xen, Oracle VMs... are concerned. To my surprise, Microsoft's Hyper-V is concerned too, since it is based on - Xen!

Whole U.S. billion dollar "virtualization business" - founded on free and open software! Surprising, isn't it? Next NASDAQ bubbles upcoming?

So, UBUNTU "Snappy" containers, unlike VMware, not only come with ZERO overhead (because there is one TCP/IP stack for all containers!), but you even can host much more containers on the same hardware, thanks to KSM (Kernel Samepage Merging), the "memory deduplication mechanism" between containers:

https://insights.ubuntu.com/2015/05/18/lxd-crushes-kvm-in-density-and-speed/

And, it finally looks like, that 'AppArmor' secured Linux LXC containers are even safer, than 'full virtualization': "Less code, less bugs!".

Have fun!

An exclusive look at the making of Windows 10 — and what's next.
Windows 10 has a lot to live up to. Microsoft has made a lot of promises about it. And oddly enough, we’ve heard most of them before, with Windows 8. Both were designed to acknowledge and embrace...

The term ‘application portability’ arose some time ago, though it’s only gained popularity as of late. So what does the term actually mean and why is it so important?
Need help comparing AWS vs. Azure? This post examines both with an emphasis on cost and performance to help you decide which is right for your business.

I agree with a previous comment - service was very poor, i guess staff is not paid enough to deal with "silly" customers. ;)

Seats have just enough room for a 5'11'' man to be ok but not comfortable. There is only little room to let other people walk out the row to the aisle, not comfortably. No cup-holders for your beverages - BC Place has them, and enough leg-room to be comfortable.

I had low expectations for the food i.e. latte and large cookie, but they were ok. I expected more from the service but it was just ok. It's a busy corner location, let's give them some slack for the service.
