PHP7 with PDO_OCI and Oci8 using Docker

With docker we can run a container in several ways, we can download ready-made images that have the programs we want, as well as we can build our own images from a Dockerfile.

As I’m studying docker, I created an image that builds a PHP development environment with the Oracle database libraries installed.

I will be making available the image and the Dockerfile with the steps if you want to create your own image or modify it according to your needs.

I will not show how to install docker in you machine, there are a lot o materials about that on the internet, after install the docker, choose one option below.

Lifeproject, the beginning!

I was in the search of a strategic planning software of life, financial control, organization (gtd), etc. In other words a software that manages the various areas of a person’s life.

Given the situation, I wouldn’t find something that fits perfectly in my needs, then I decided to create my first software that would use a free software license (open source), I am going to be releasing the software  under the GPLv2,  I also took advantage of the fact of being in the process of learning and fixing a new programming language as well as its main framework  (ruby on rails), for me you really learn something when you create some product with that that you have learnt, from my process of learnt  the rails I am creating the  LifeProject, that is my way of thank to the free software community , creating another free software, that way all of us win.

The software uses only open source resources, database PostgreSQL (I’ve not tested with other databases),  the template AdmiLTE, and as said before it is written upon the framework Ruby on Rails.

The software will manage various areas. But I will start the development from the area that I will call “Culture”. According to a quote that I like very much from Leandro Flores “A people without art and without culture is a people that does not exist”. In other words, culture is the basis of the human being, there you can take some things like art, movies, books or anything else you want to learn and then grow as a person.

The other areas that I intend to initially include besides culture are finances and goals (short, medium, long term and of life), within goals we can include projects, habits, etc.

Feel free to join on board, and contribute to the project on GitHub.

My history with the free software world

My history with the free software (as in freedom), has long date. I’ve begun to try to use when I was in the college, about 2006, I didn’t begin by encourage of my University, but I began because a friend of college encouraged me. I think that is a mistake courses in the area of technology don’t encourage to use free software, because free software gives more liberty and possibilities for who is learning to program. But coming back to my experience, I’ve tried to begin in one distribution for expert users in Linux, the Slackware, but as soon as I began, I gave up, due the difficult to found drivers to a modem of mine. I also had to compile the majority of the programs for this distribution. My Internet in that time was through a dial up modem 56k and I used only on the weekends because on the weekends was cheaper than Monday to Friday. After that I changed to Kurumin, a Brazilian distribution based on Kinnopix who already had Continue reading…
