Learn how to make a website - in other words coding a website

Website is usually a bunch of information and coding lines with some images and layout ideas you put in your own way. It does require little bit of coding but with very little intelligence and lot of effort you can really do anything you can imagine with websites.

There are a number of components you will have to first review and understand before start writing the fully coded website. These include following areas that you will have to run through.

HTML5/ XHTML and CSS3
These are basing website coding languages that a web browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome can read and display the output for users. You can see these easily for any website you browse by selecting the Display Source option of your internet browser.

TWITTER BOOTSTRAP
Not taking you to tweet but is a method of coding the HTML & CSS that doesn't only make it simpler and easier to understand and code but also simplifies the website presentation for users. Sometimes this is also referred as Web 2.0.

PHP & MYSQL
If you want any interactiveness in your website such as user accounts, ecommerce site or make changes to website through the admin control you develop yourself you will also have to learn server side language and querying databases. PHP is an open source free server side language and MYSQL is very popular open source database (not relational) used hand in hand with PHP.

Rather than reinventing the wheel I would refer you to a very good learning resource for all of above and if you have read and understood all of these simple and visual tutorials you will be soon en route to website coding guru.

Tools you need before you start using Terraform for orchestration infrastructure in cloud

Terraform one of the famous open source tool used for planning, deploying and maintaining infrastructure as a code and the beauty of this tool is that it works across various cloud service providers. Even though I personally like the AWS Cloudformation, it is AWS only and most probably it will always remain limited to Amazon Web Services. It has few advantages over other tools when using with AWS and will be the first to have new AWS features incorporated before other tools and APIs catch up. However if you are not limiting yourself to AWS only or have hybrid environment you may want to use a 3rd party tool compatible for all cloud infrastructures. Terraform being one of them is youngest client only tool and this article will help you setting up your desktop environment and give you understanding of how it works before you can start to code. Prerequisites: Computer running Windows, Linux, Solaris or MacOS operating system. Downloads: Download Terraform directly from the crea

Copy files and folders using SCP with spaces in path

Copying data from one system to other with file or folder names that contain spaces in path can be achieved using this guide. In this case I am copying data from Macbook to Windows 10 computer. In order to copy the data easily it is better to use bash commands. Windows computer can support WSL (Windows subsystem for Linux) and you can run one of few linux distributions to use shell commands. I have Ubuntu set up within my Windows 10 using WSL. If you do not have WSL, you can set it up using my guide here . The copy can be performed in two ways: 1) Using SCP Source (MacOs) path: /home/Users/username/Documents/data extract from 2020/ First of all you add escape sequence to the path so it will become:  /home/Users/me/Documents/data\ extract\ from\ 2020/ . While this works on local system for SCP you'll have to double the escape sequences by replacing \ with \\, as below. Figure out your source computer IP address using "ifconfig" command. Now using scp command on target syst
