VersionEye started its first Meetup group “Geek2Geek”

ImageGeek2Geek is a monthly Berlin Tech Talk. Our goal is to bring software developers with a diverse background together. We noticed that the coding community is often isolated, meaning that PHP devs. are only going to PHP UG’s and Java devs. solely to Java UG’s

However, we believe that we could achieve great things if we connect. If you’re a open source developer, start-up, techie, or geek using Java, Ruby, Python, Node.JS, PHP, JavaScript, R or Clojure, this group is for you!

Our first meetup is on July 23, 2013 and we’re pleased to announce that the speakers for our first Geek2Geek meetup are Christoph Beckmann from KaufDA and Tobias Balling from BLINKIST. This time we will focus on “IT infrastructure for DevOps”.

Christoph Beckmann
Christoph is team lead at KaufDA. He’s developing preferably with the Grails framework and is a DevOp expert. Over the past 2 1/2 years he has helped build the international KaufDA IT team. Previously, he gained experience at a consulting firm in Cologne and founded Germany’s first toilet search engine. Christoph will show how KaufDA manages its infrastructure with puppet in 5 countries.

Tobias Balling
Tobias is CTO at BLINKIST. He’s is currently thinking about the perfect presentation topic. So, more details are coming soon!

Thanks to VersionEye, snacks and beer are available for free, while supplies last. We’re looking forward to meeting you!

With the help of the badges you can see immediately if the dependencies of a software library are up-to-date, out-of-date or unknown. Click on the badges and a pop-up window will appear with code snippets for mostly used markup languages. To add the badges to your GitHub Readme.md or other HTML pages, simply copy and paste.

Image
Good news: The badges are also available for your public VersionEye projects.

You know a project is up-to-date when all of a project’s dependencies are up-to-date.

Can’t wait to see these badges on GitHub!  :-)

Following Alexander Cogneau’s introduction to dependency management with Composer, you now know that Composer is a resolver for managing external project dependencies and versioning constraints.

Living Apart Together: Decoupling Code and Framework

Living Apart Together: Decoupling Code and Framework

Of course you develop using the latest technologies and frameworks. You’ve written 2.5 frameworks yourself, your code is PSR-2 compliant, fully unit-tested, has an accompanying PHPMD and PHPCS config, and may even ship with proper documentation (really, that exists!). When a new version of your favorite framework is released, you’ve already used it in your own toy project and submitted a couple of bug reports, maybe even accompanied with a unit test to prove the bug and a patch that fixes it. If that describes you, or at least the developer you want to be: reconsider the relationship your code has with the framework…

PHPFog is Coming to an End – But Don’t Panic!

PHPFog is Coming to an End – But Don’t Panic!

Have you heard PHPFog is coming to an end? No, well – it is. That’s right, in a recent announcement on their mailing list, the company has said that PHPFog will be no more by the end of January, 2013. But if you’re on their platform, don’t panic! The new, combined platform may be even better than what you’re accustomed to with them now.

Cloud is all the rage these days so it’s likely a lot of us have applications deployed with one or more cloud providers, whether they’re our pet projects, professional projects, or projects for our employers. And as AppFog is one of the larger vendors, with venture funding of around $9.8 million, this announcement should not go unnoticed because you might be affected either directly or indirectly…
