Thoughts on technology, movies, and everything else
WordPress is my favorite Content Management System (CMS). Once in a while it helps me make some extra money. Once in a while it helps me look at the problem from a different perspective. But even when it doesn’t, I still enjoy using it for this (and a few other) websites. And I enjoy interacting with the community. I use this category to share bits and pieces which are WordPress related.
Awesome Interviews is a curated awesome list of lists of interview questions. Technical interviews, mind you. It covers a wide range of areas from a variety of programming languages, frameworks and databases, to operating systems, data structures and algorithms. There also coding exercises and much more.
This list links to some really great resources for both candidates, who are preparing for the interviews, and interviewers who want to make their interviews better.
Faces of Open Source is an on-going photographic documentation of the people behind the development and advancement of the open source revolution that has transformed the technology industry.
Given the immense contribution of these people to the world around us, I find it surprising that they are so far from the celebrity status and most people in the world won’t know any of these faces. Even people in technology sector itself, won’t probably name even half of these people by the picture alone. For some, even the name won’t mean anything.
Kudos to this project for trying to make these faces slightly more familiar and for giving credit where credit is due.
WordPress 5.0 has been released today. It is by far the largest update to the system since … since I can remember. In fact, to some, it might look like a completely different system, thanks to a totally new editing experience – Gutenberg.
I have already upgraded this blog to the new version, and I’m writing this post with the new editor. It is awesome! It’ll take some getting used, but not because it’s difficult, rather because I’ve been using WordPress for too long.
I also can’t wait to see what all the creative people will come up with in their themes and plugins, pushing WordPress websites to the new high.
CMS Scanner is a security tool from Open Security crew that you can host locally and use for security scans of WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and vBulletin websites. I think that having an automated tool like that is way better and more productive than a thousand blog posts on how to secure your installation of a particular software.
