#HPjadul Nokia 6820 Transformers Series Jaman Old

Untuk ukuran Jaman Old, Nokia merupakan satu-satunya vendor yang berani bermain di banyak desain ponsel sehingga tak heran bila pada Jaman Now banyak kolektor ponsel jadul memburu seri-seri apik mereka seperti halnya Transformer satu ini. Diawali dengan duo seri 6800 dan 6810 yang diluncurkan hampir berbarengan, Nokia menawarkan ponsel dengan form factor candy bar seperti […]

Google Day Indonesia 26 – 27 September 2012

Senang sekali kita saya bisa ikut dan diundang di acara Google Day Indonesia yang pertama di Indonesia. Kebetulan saya disini mewakili komunitas Google Business Group (GBG) Bali Chapter dimana merupakan bagian dari GBG Indonesia. GBG sendiri adalah sebuah komunitas bisnis terutama small business (UKM) yang ingin leverage dan expand bisnis mereka dengan bantuan produk2 dari Google seperti AdWords, Analytics, YouTube Google+ dan banyak lagi. Di posting lainnya saya akan lebih menceritakan lebih detail mengenai GBG.

Di event ini sendiri terlihat Google sangat ingin terlibat dengan berbagai kalangan mulai dari pengusaha UKM, student hingga developer. Mereka juga memperkenalkan produk2 google dan bagaimana kita bisa memanfaatkan tool tersebut utk keperluan bisnis serta mengembangkan berbagai macam aplikasi bagai para developer.

Dari yang bisa saya lihat, Google mulai fokus untuk market di emerging countries seperti Indonesia dan asia tenggara pada umumnya serta wilayah Amerika selatan dimana potensi baik dari sisi small business dan developer sangat besar bisa dilihat dari banyaknya pertanyaan yang diajukan selama event berlangsung.

Belajar Ruby 1

Bukan, saya bukan Ruby programmer atau mengerti bahasa pemrograman ruby. Justru saya baru belajar ruby satu – dua minggu ini. Alasan saya belajar ruby ? Bosan dgn PHP! *just kiding* alasan pastinya tidak ada, tapi karena saya tertarik belajar web framework rails yg berbasis ruby, obviously ruby knowledge is a must. Lucu aja misalnya belajar codeigniter tapi nggak tau PHP :)

Anyway bytheway, teman menyarankan saya utk membaca buku ttg ruby judulnya “Programming Ruby 1.9″ the pragmatic programmers guide, which I found very useful utk newbie seperti saya.

Konsep baru yg saya temukan setelah membaca sampai di chapter 2 adalah symbol dan yield. Symbol mirip constan di php tapi nggak perlu define sebelumnya dan nggak ada valuenya. Sedangkan yield belum ketemu persamaannya di php. Yield di ruby ibarat coroutine dimana dua method bisa saling panggil memanggil. *susah jelasinnya*

Sekian dulu belajar ruby, jelas postingan ini bukan tutorial ruby tapi lebih opini pribadi hasi baca buku dan resource lainnya. Nanti disambung lagi..

Until then, happy coding!

The right web host for your business

Some people thought that in order to get a great service, they’ll have to spend a big amount of money. Well, not really. Sometimes, spending more is not even advisable.

I don’t think there’s still a need for me to explain why a business should set up a website. It has been proven to be a very effective way of marketing a product, service or company. You can buy a hosting package from many different hosting providers. But not all of them are reliable enough to make sure your website is always online. Every minute and every hour is important for a business especially if you’re serious on getting your business a good start.

That’s why you can’t just buy a hosting package from just about any web host. You have to make sure that your web hosting provider is reliable and can provide you with what you really need. One of the best web hosting provider and domain name registrar right now is Doteasy. They have been around since 2000 and up to now still continue to satisfy their customers with a great service. They have different hosting packages to choose from. You can try their unlimited hosting plan for only $9.95 per month. But if you want to try them first, you can actually get a feel of their service for free with their free (basic) hosting plan. With the free hosting, you already get as much as 100MB disk space and a cPanel control panel to use. They’ll also provide your free hosting account with lots of great web tools to help you create your website easier.

Whatever hosting you may need, Doteasy can definitely provide you with that. They guarantee 99.9% uptime to assure how serious they are in providing their customers nothing but the best in the market. And they also have a promo which lets you register any domain name for only $4.95. That’s a very cheap price compared to what other domain name registrar offers.
