Grive: A free open source Google Drive client for Linux0
When Google Drivefinally launched after roughly a million years of waiting, we got desktop clients for Windows and OSX. As usual, poor unrequited Linux was left out in the cold. Google says a Linux client is coming, but why wait? A free open source Google Drive client called Grive has been put together by a third-party developer, and it looks quite nice.
We all know the dedicated Linuxfan doesn’t have time to pronounce two words, thus Google Drive becomes Grive. The program is still in the early stages of public availability, and is missing some features like full sync. Instead, you will have to manually refresh to upload and download new files. Development is proceeding quickly; the file upload ability was just added recently, in fact.
Setting LAMP development environment with Linux0
Lamp developers work on open source technologies. We proudly say that we support FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) movement. How still several open source developers work on Microsoft windows, which is a proprietary operating system from Microsoft and putting its user’s freedom at stake.
The reason most users use proprietary operating system is they feel (although its not true) that learning linux is not easy. No doubt learning new OS need some time and patience but still it is not a rocket science. If you wish to start development on Linux, this document will help you to setup PHP development environment on Open SUSE 12.1 on your Laptop (Well it will also work for desktop). However be prepared to download some software (approx 2-3 GB) and prepare CD/DVD of them.
Development and Management Tools0
I’m back again. This time basically writing to keep it as quick reference for myself and posting it as blog if it could help others.
This is basically a list of some tools we generally use for development/Project planning. There are few tools that developers/Project manager use so frequently tht we do not need list. However there are few tools that we use occationally and when we actually need them, we forget the best tool to meet the requiremetns. So this is an attempt t list down important tools for development/project management purpose.
I’ll keep the list updated and if someone finds I miss any important tool, please leave a comment so that I can add that in the list.
Please note: Only open source or free softwares qualify for this list. If there is not open source solution in any category, I’ll clearly mention it. However I’ll simply neglect paid softwares, if there is even a single decent opensource solution is available in the category.
Guidelines for an IT career.6
Few days ago, I got a mail from my elder brother, who is working as PM in a reputed multinational. That was exceptional guidelines for any fresher/IT/Non IT person to learn about different options available in IT field and choose a career which matches their ability.
I though that worth publishing for every one. Here is the mail
Hope all good at our end. Everyone from IT or non IT wants to learn computer and see it as a career. Poor fellow like me having no option but to stick to IT but other who don’t have IT background(BE-Computer,IT,…etc, BSc-IT, B.Sc.-Computer Sciences are confused what to do/choose.
