WordPress Job Board Plugin

I haven’t posted on my blog for about 2 months now but it is all because i was busy working on few projects, actually since beginning of the year i completed 4 projects already, that’s about one a month so i can say that i am on a roll now :). Project i finished this time is version 2.0 of a job board that i am running here (although not much success promoting it – only 2 job offers till beginning, but again there is not much traffic either).

Why there won’t be revolution in PHP6

I am a big fan of Joel Spolsky articles, not long ago i read one of his “Strategy Letters” and realised why there will be no revolution in PHP ever.

Ubuntu vs Windows

While i focus on web development in my articles this post is not related to web development in anyway, however i feel the need to post it here, after reading a bunch of articles comparing Windows and Ubuntu. For me it seemed that, authors writing this articles never used Ubuntu, they just installed it because manager told them to compare this two operating systems. Of course Ubuntu always loses big time, while i believe that Ubuntu (which btw means “humanity for everyone”) is a system simpler to use once you get past all the Windows nonsense that we are all used to.

Big MySQL dump import

Recently i faced problem “How to upload over 100 MB mysql dump into database”. Obviously it cannot be done using phpMyAdmin, because file is to big, i could open the file and execute query after query, but it would take a lot of time, besides opening such a file is a problem by itself. So i started to search for a solution and i found wonderful solution. Continue reading Big MySQL dump import
