Friday Night #1

It’s Friday Night and if you’ve noticed, this post is entirely different from the other ones, beginning by the post icon, which does not follows the yellow/gray pattern that I’ve choose to personalize the categories of my website. This is all due to the fact that at Friday Night, I am much more likely to have a break and speak out my mind, than write about things that resembles technology or programming. Friday Nights are meant to be slow and lazy.

Django + NGiNX!

Have I said that Python is a solid programming language yet? As a sequence of our last post, I’m going to show you how python works on the web itself, by deploying one of the most famous web frameworks available today: Django! We’re going to work on a NGiNX web server powered by Debian and MariaDB, aiming to focus on resource usage while our ideas will be guarded by Django’s stability!

Python: dnspython!

As a Debian/xfce4 user, I’ll share the correct way to configure Dropbox on this environment.

firefox-update.sh

Yes! If you noticed, I’m a huge fan of Firefox.

Back to WordPress

It’s been a while since I’ve used WordPress for personal purposes, in fact, the last time that I’ve deployed a WordPress instance was back in 2013! Through these years I’ve tried a lot installing and managing Django, Flask and even a basic handmade MVC on PHP but, none have satisfied the time that I don’t have. Strange, isn’t it?
