  1. Configure RoundCube on Debian 8 (Jessie) - Perfect Server Debian 8 (Apache, BIND, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)

    Debian 8 (Jessie) doesn't contain RoundCube in it's repositories. Why, I don't know :) . In ISPConfig3, Perfect Server, Debian 8, you get SquirrelMail, but I don't like how it looks. With some trouble setting it up, I managed to configure RoundCube on Debian 8 and make it wokring with ISPConfig3. Used many sources to make it work and decided to create this manual that you’re reading.I presume that you have configured your server with Perfect Server Debian 8 (Apache, BIND, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3) configuraton...

  5. Http Patterns: Progress

    A progress resource is usually a temporary resource that is created automatically by the server to provide status on some long running process that has been initiated by a client. It is used to provide feedback to an end user and point to the results of an operation once it has completed.HTTP is a client/server request and response protocol. It does not provide for server initiated communications. If a client makes a request to a server that is likely to take a long time, e.g. 5 seconds or longer,...
  6. HTTP Patterns : Factory

    A factory resource is one that is used to create other resources.Sometimes it is difficult to create a complete resource representation on the client without some involvement from the server. It may be that the server is responsible for creating a unique identifier for the new resource, so a PUT request is not possible. Or other attributes of the resource may be dependent on existing server state. For example, creating a order resource where the order quantity may be adjusted based on in-stock quantity.
  7. Get to know your tools

    Tools give you power, but power needs to be used wisely. And by wisely I mean understanding the power you have in your hands. You can use a hammer both with screws and nails, but it is better for the later than for the former.Now, talking about programmers, this is quite more important. I’m not suggesting that you need to memorize all the options and shortcuts that your development environment has, but I’ve seen many cases when people start using an IDE, a framework or even a language based just...
  8. HTTP Patterns : Bouncer

    A resource designed to accept a request body containing complex query parameters and redirect to a new location to enable the results of complex and expensive queries to be cached.There are practical limitations to the length of a URL on the Web. In order to send complex queries it is sometimes necessary to use a POST method and use the request body to describe the query parameters. However, a POST method cannot return a cached response. If the complex queries take a non-trivial amount of time...
  9. HTTP Patterns : Discovery

    This type of resource is used to provide a client with the information it needs to be able to access other resources. This removes the need for a client to hardcode resource URLs which include information such as the protocol scheme, host, path and query string.The primary problem addressed by a discovery resource is allowing API developers to change various elements of their API without having to notify client developers of the change and potentially force those customers to redeploy their application.
  10. Essentials for software developers or any computer job

    I have been talking about the following on many occasions during the last years already. Actually, it is always part of my consulting services when companies ask for advice on what they should do to improve the overall satisfaction of their software developers. But in general, it's pretty simple: The following are my essentials for any software developer or craftsman that is taking her or his profession seriously. Originally, I started my list with the first four topics only but experience taught...
