"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" Leonardo da Vinci
In an increasingly complex world 'simplicity' is becoming rare and welcome. Edward de Bono's book Simplicity is a demonstration that our society has overcomplicated it's existence and in turn is complicating our lives day in day out. It provides us with a simple yet effective way to simplify our lives!
My adventures with Cron began almost 15 years ago. It all started with PHP text based games I was creating and managing.
Since then I've went through many phases where I had implemented similar functionality in the software itself. I will show you what other options I have devised in Elixir, PHP and TCL during this article.
My latest encounter was connected to well, you guessed it, PHP again. I was setting up Sendy newsletter automation. It required 2 cronjobs to function properly. One for the newsletter sending each minute so it doesn't send all mails at once. The second one was for autoresponders to be sent out to new users upon registration and at predefined times. This is a cool feature since you're sure not to attract negative spam AND can effectively send thousands of mails per day.
Communication is essential. Communication conveys your message. Crafting a message is important. How you deliver the message and how you respond to the feedback you get is important.
Feedback is all around us. Each time we speak we need to listen for it.
Communication is the only way we can ever get something done in a group. If I (Andrei Clinciu) as a Developer recognize this importance then how much more important it must be for Managers and for normal people. It's said that software developers and engineers are analytical types. What can we say about those in charge?
There are tons of benefits to having your own domain. I'm going to give you 7 benefits why owning your own domain for e-mail is better than just owning public "free" e-mails.
All e-mails and domains used in this article are fictional, any resemblance with reality are purely coincidental.
1 Get a professional Look
How many times haven't you seen some kind of "professional" who uses an gmail, yahoo, hotmail or another free provider for his/her e-mail address? I don't know about you. Yet each time I see such a "professional" I'm having second thoughts. He may be a true master at what he does yet it strikes me odd that (s)he won't go an extra mile to personalize his branding and professional look.

This article represents the idea and the difference between developers, scriptwriters and true programmers (actually they should be called software architects next to software engineers).
True PROgrammers understand their environment and how everything works from low level to high level. This way they know when it's futile to try something and when you should have a workaround. They are the ones that listen to your problem and already have a solution in mind even if they haven't written a single line of code yet.
I was writing my script and guide for the From Noob to CyberSecurity Pro blog article (and possible video) which I started writing in June.
I wanted to prove a point about how the news makes programming and hacking seem so easy by stating that there are 13 year old hackers/prodigies/programmers. Then i decided to search on google for similar fake stories since you can't possibily be an expert at such an young age. Leave Mozart be, he had training from the age of 3 and of course at the age of 13 he was proficient. Expertise comes with years of training. No wonder in that!
I ended up finding thousands of references to this young elite penetration testing mega hacker called Tahir
Once upon a time long ago, before hypesters began taking mainstream pills. IN a land long forgotten happy programmers developed complex software with simple tools. They practiced their crafts from the basics. Then one day a very enlightened group of people started inventing frameworks. They thought that a framework that did everything could help you in faster development. Soon after hipsters invaded and you had a framework that made other frameworks. Or in Java terminology, you first need to build a factory that builds your classes before you can add 2+3.
What happened to proper programming? What's wrong with using battle proof design patterns? Why the heck are there so many programming languages, frameworks, libraries that do the same thing? Why are people becoming web developers and not software engineers?
