Google Chrome Extensions: Blog This! (by Google)

Google Chrome Extensions: Blog This! (by Google)

For some time I have no time to write, byt while installing extensions to Chrome 4, I find titled extension. Maybe using it I will post more often...

In last month there was a lot of changes in my life:
1: Moving to Krakow... Krakow is one of the biggest cities in Poland. But why I do that? See 2.
2: After serching a job as a Java developer I gave up and start a 3-month practice (paid ;) as a junior PHP/Zend Framework programmer.
3: Install back Windows XP, sometimes I don't have time to Linux.... :(
4: Install Debian ;) Attention! When I upgrade it to sid my network menager stopped and I was unable to fix it, but now everything is ok, but I have stable realase installed ;)

I still have one partition empty but can't decide between Linux Mint and Linux Ubuntu. Readers please vote! ;)

About PHP:
I am reading about 3-4 php books at once but I after work I'm tired and sometimes read only a few pages.

PHP language:
It is slow! But at work we must think all the time how to make site we are creating fast, this is + but not for a language but my expirience ;) PHP is not OO language, many want it to be OO. Maybe becouse I was learning mostly Java PHP is mostly odd.
Also I gathering expirience with SQL/MySQL it can be handy :)

Of course please point my errors!

How to simulate slow connection (developer proxy in Node.js)

Update: If you use Chrome then you can use "Throttling" so simulate slow network for all your assets. This should be easier than proxy.

For some time I wanted to use some proxy for development and testing of eg. slow internet connection, but it was hard to find something useful and free. I know there is Charles but buy it to use it at most one in a month is not for me.

I started thinking about Node.js, maybe I can write proxy for me? But fortunately I found one.

With this module I can write really short code to create slow server:

var http = require('http'), httpProxy = require('http-proxy'); httpProxy.createServer(function (req, res, proxy) { var buffer = httpProxy.buffer(req); setTimeout(function () { proxy.proxyRequest(req, res, { host: 'localhost', port: 8080, …

Course Review: The Bitfountain iOS 8 with Swift Immersive

This is second big iOS learning project. For first one read iOS Programming book review. As I only have two of them done I have to compare them somehow.

I am mindful that it took me a really long time to finish it (since last autumn). For a couple of months this year I didn't even have the internet to learn it, so it could not be helped. But last half of the June I've spent watching the videos every day and managed to finish it before any new internet problems.

So how was it?
In my opinion, it's great if you're starting out. There are a lot of basics, and seeing how to do things in XCode just makes your learning much easier than looking at the photos in the book. On the other hand, learning is more shallow and it is much easier to just follow the videos and learn only the basics without bigger picture about iOS SDK. I somehow missed more challenging exercises (even though I don't like to do them ;)

Course it pretty long but many videos are quite short (1-2…
