  TIOBE : C overtakes Java as the No.1 programming language


TIOBE has released the Programming Community Index for April 2012. The highlight of this month is that C overtakes Java as the No.1 programming language again. C language is liked by more and more developers of all ages. Due to the growing popularity of the Android platform, Java decline will not be obvious. Previously Java took a very long time to overtake C, now C once again returns to the throne. The battle between these two languages will continue.The top three are respectively, C, Jav...

  If PHP Were British


When Rasmus Lerdorf first put PHP together, he - quite sensibly, despite his heritage - chose not to write it in Greenlandic or Danish. Good job too - that would have been rather unpleasant to work with. He opted instead, being in Canada at the time, for the local tongue. No, not French - that bastard dialect of the Queen's English commonly referred to as "US English"1. PHP developers in Britain have been grumpy about this ever since. What was he thinking? And more importantly, how do we ...

  Use progressive JPEG to improve user experience


JPEG image files can have two different save types : Baseline JPEG and Progressive JPEG. Both of them have the same extension name but with different display effect. Baseline JPEG This type of JPEG files are scanned from top to bottom consecutively, each line of the image data will be saved sequentially. When opening this kind of images, data will be displayed with the save order line by line until all the data are read. If the image size is very large or network speed is very slow, the image wi...

  I'm Retiring from PHP


I am retiring from PHP as my language of choice for personal side projects and new programming ventures. This was not an easy decision to come to, but one that I think is necessary for my love of programming to continue. You see, I'm not only a programmer because I love programming, but because I can not do anything else. History It all started in 1999 when I was in 8th grade. The Internet was really starting to get interesting and I wanted to start programming. I had picked up...

  Using htpasswd to protect your website in Nginx


We need to build a password protected website frequently such as an internal website within the team, demo website. Here what we are talking about is password protection in Nginx server level instead of application level registration and login. We are going to use Nginx server configuration and htpasswd file to achieve password authentication. The final result looks like below(Different browsers may have different interfaces): If the authentication fails, it will report a HTTP error: 401 Author...

  The 10 most expensive domains on the Internet


Domain name is the name which we usually type on the web browser address bar. For example, we may type http://www.apple.com on the address bar, here www.apple.com is the domain name. Can you imagine that this domain is worth millions of dollars? We believe that most domains are initially for starting related business and easy for users to remember. But with the popularity of the business, some of the domains become valuable and they are more expensive than some small companies. Below are some mo...

  The war with spam comment


Spam comments are annoying and notorious. They are either malicious data from hackers to exploit the loopholes of the site or advertisements posted by robots. These kinds of comments have their own features and patterns, if we are careful enough, we can find ways to block most of them although it's not so easy. To block the comment with malicious executable codes such as JavaScript, we should remember one rule : never trust user input. So wherever there are user inputs, we need to check the vali...

  PHP to Objective C, where the f**k are parameters?


Javascript, PHP, Ruby functionsI assume you are very familiar with declaring functions in any of the languages above, if not, you should not be reading this. Let’s begin with a simple function to send email in these languages:// PHP or Javascript do_send_email (recipient, cc, subject, body); // Ruby do_send_email (recipient, cc, subject, body)So it’s clear by looking at the function’s signature that it takes 4 parameters and they could be optional, depends on your implementation.

  Why every programmer should learn Python or Ruby


If you are a student, you probably know C, C++ and Java. A few know VB, or C# / .NET. At some point you’ve probably built some web pages, so you know HTML, CSS and maybe JavaScript. By and large, it is difficult to find students who have any exposure to languages beyond this. And this is a shame because there are a number of programming languages out there which will make you a better programmer. In this article, we give some reasons why you must learn Python or Ruby2. Compared to C/C++/...

  What kind of automated testing does Facebook do?


We do several kinds of testing. Some specifics:For our PHP code, we have a suite of a few thousand test classes using the PHPUnit framework. They range in complexity from simple true unit tests to large-scale integration tests that hit our production backend services. The PHPUnit tests are run both by developers as part of their workflow and continuously by an automated test runner on dedicated hardware. Our developer tools automatically use code coverage data to run tests that cover the ...
