What is Bitnami ?

What is Bitnami ?

Bitnami makes it easy to run your favorite server apps anywhere

Bitnami is a library of popular server applications and development environments that can be installed with one click, either in your laptop, in a virtual machine or hosted in the cloud. We take care of compiling and configuring the applications and all of their dependencies (third-party libraries, language runtimes, databases) so they work out-of-the-box. The resulting packaged software (a 'stack') is then made available as native installers, virtual machines and cloud images. These Bitnami application packages provide a consistent, secure and optimized end-user experience when deploying any app, on any platform.

Bitnami Cloud Hosting Bitnami Cloud Hosting is a server management solution that makes it incredibly simple to launch and manage apps on Amazon Web Services. Users can launch all of the Bitnami application packages, build development environments, automate ba…

Deploying PHP applications as PHAR archives

Deploying PHP applications as PHAR archives
Today I discovered a very powerful addition to the PHP world. Phar is an archive extension for PHP that allows an entire PHP application to be packaged into a single file. It's basically PHP's answer to Java's .jar archive format. Don't get excited yet, it gets better... There are a few things that make this particularly handy. For one, it is being integrated into the next major PHP release (5.3) which means that any standard PHP installation running the latest version will support .phar files right out of the box. The other advantage is of course in deployment. Using a .phar file you can deploy an entire PHP application by working with just one file, rather than a bunch of files and directories. This is where .phar really shines. Imagine deploying a popular web app like WordPress by simply copying a single .phar file to your web server's root, rather than figuring out how to zip it up, upload it, and some…

If you are instead primarily interested in using Git to fetch a project, for example, to test the latest version, you may prefer to start with the first two chapters of The Git User's Manual.

The Brain Regain

It's an article of : Mohammed BIN RASHID AL MAKTOUM, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai. Written on : JUN 8, 2014 , from : The World's Opinion Page
DUBAI – In 1968, while studying at the Mons Officer Cadet School in the United Kingdom, I needed to visit a hospital. There I met a doctor who, to my surprise, spoke fluent Arabic. I learned that he was new to the UK, so I asked if he intended to stay long or return home. He replied with an Arabic saying that translates as: “My home is where I can eat.”
That doctor’s words stayed with me for many years, because they underscored the contradiction between our idealized view of “home” and the harsh realities of life that push talented people to leave their homes. The doctor was a classic case of the “brain drain” phenomenon that has afflicted developing countries for decades. These countries spend scarce resources educating doctors, engineers, and scientists, in the hope that they will be…
