Rust 0.10 was just released. The biggest change? The Rust community will be distributing binary forms of the compiler, rustc, going forward. Hooray!
My explorations in Rust and having to wrestle with a statically typed language
I've put together a checklist of some DO's and DON'Ts that I've learned that help me review someone else's code or even my own code before forking over the big bucks to a translation company.
If you're trying to setup Drupal or another application on Amazon Web Services, aka AWS, you'll need to do quite a bit of setup, and you'll need to learn a whole new vocabulary of platform-specific terminology. This post will focus on one AWS-specific term: Security Groups
A how-to guide on creating a public-facing menu using hook_menu(). We'll also talk about why hook_menu is so bad, 2 techniques for nesting menu items, and how to put a menu item into the menu of your choosing.
At my day job, we've been using the Domain Access module with Drupal 6 for 5 years. Recently, we've decided it's time to rethink our approach to Drupal multisite. In this article, I'll share some of ideal use cases and pitfalls for the Domain module and some alternatives for you to consider.
I'm sharing lessons learned from my experience using Drupal 6 and i18n for translation. The long story short: Make translation easier by keeping things simple. Don't use the t() when you can keep translatable strings fully in the database, and don't break up individual strings into multiple t().
I've recently started experimenting with using drush core-quick-drupal to create drupal sites strictly for creating patches to share on drupal.org. I'll walk you through my several pitfalls on the road to making this command work on Ubuntu 12.04. Hopefully, with this advice in hand, you'll be able to spin up fresh drupal instances in no time!
Drush and PHP have several commands that let you 'play' with your code much faster than you can traditionally in the browser. I only recently noticed them, and I wanted to summarize how to use three separate but related techniques to write bug free code faster on the command line.
