Aloha Hackers ,
The greatest mistake you can make in your life is to continually feeling that you can make one .
Well it was a busy day at office , working on a SDN project and today got some success in the work I was stuck in for days , All I can say opensource is a boon for Software engineers ,
When you work in a StartUp especially a product based , all you are surrounded with is OPENSOURCE or FREE .
For reason mostly being “one just can’t afford a licensed product :)”
Need a :
- HTTP server and reverse proxy -Nginx
- Web Application Firewall -ModSecurity(OWASP)
- Private and Public Clouds -Openstack
- Firewall configuration tool-Shorewall
- Monitoring Solution -ELK
- High Availability -Heartbeat and Pacemaker
- Test management tool- TestLink
- Defect tracking system -Bugzilla
- Automation framework -PyTest
- Continuous integration tool -Jenkins
- Version control system -Bitbucket
These products are one of the best in the market , all I am saying is they serve your purpose and are Opensource .
The biggest advantage of Opensource to an integrator (yes that’s what you are doing most of the time — integrating cool opensource product to build your solution or sometimes if you are a little more clever , integrating cool opensource product to develop your licensed product “SWAG” )
is that “you can google it” , you have a huge community 24*7 providing you technical support (StackOverflow is divine.)
Why am I bawling over it ?
Because I have been snatched of this pleasure . Working on project surrounded by licensed products as I am creating a SDN solution for a billionaire company .
And all I get when I google are documents and pdf’s written in the most professional way by great Tech writers , God Bless them , who themselves have no technical idea of what they are writing about .
OK let’s move towards some preparation for today .
Back to Free Code Camp -
Let’s note down things as well for me as well as your reference
Heads Up I am beginner in JS , So pro’s can skip the below bullet points or just glide over the bold text , your wish -
- Variable names can be made up of numbers, letters, and $ or _, but may not contain spaces or start with a number.
Well , there was nothing more substantial I did today in JS other than getting a hang of it’s Data Structures and syntax . Will have to pace a little more .
My Free Code Camp score has gone to 168 .
Today we also have the Atletico — Bayern UEFA Champions League semifinal Game 1 , hopefully all you guys are geared up for it . I am cheering for Atletico as the team that eliminated my favourite Barcelona , deserves to win .
It’s 01:43 am and I am signing off for today .
