So, let's start this blog with a tutorial about how to set up a webserver. It is called "Server from Source" as we will start with a clean Linux Server and work our ways up to a secure and ready to use server.
Starting a new blog is like the "Hello World"-Snippet you try in every programming language to get a feel for how things work. So I'll use this first post as first step into my own blog.
What can you expect? Well, I'll talk alot about coding (mostly PHP and a bit Java) and tech-related things like Social Web and Android Smartphone. I won't just copy news to get content in here or post 2 lines saying nothing more than everybody allready knows. I'll try to make valueable posts which are fun to read and provide information.
I like working agile, using elements of Scrum and Test Driven Development to design applications that not only work, but work perfectly and are managable, maintainable and extentable.
One thing I'll do in the comming weeks is a tutorial about how to set up a webserver using Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS. It will cover the installation and configuration of apache, php, mysql, git and some other basic stuff. Another thing you may read about many times will be symfony, a PHP framework I use for many projects. The second version is currently in preview phase, and I think when it's finished it will be awesome!
