Who doesn't want to have a stake at a idea that has a great business opportunity and great growth potential?
During my career I've had the opportunity to talk to numerous people who had business ideas. Most of these people where out to make money and this is their primary concern day in day out. Most try anything to the point where they forget that there are other factors involved other than seeking to maximize profits.
"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.
Memory allocation, release to OS - Fragmentation - Python - Elixir - Tcl
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.
