In this post, I will try to demonstrate how to use AWS – Elastic Beanstalk for an open source php application.
Pre-Requisite: AWS Account + GIT account
Difficulty level : Hard for novice (first comer) or Damn easy for expert
Target date to complete: 25 April ( in 2 day time)
Steps [ I will update as an when I make progress ]:
1: Get a quick overview of AWS – Elastic Beanstalk.
2: Setup a GIT repository
3: Upload Code to AWS – Elastic Beanstalk application container
We may face issues and error. I will try to keep a screenshot of each and will let you know how i tried to tackle.
Lets start now
A: What is Amazon Elastic Beanstalk
URL : https://console.aws.amazon.com/elasticbeanstalk/home?region=us-east-1#/getting_started?applicationNameFilter=
With Elastic Beanstalk, you can deploy, monitor, and scale an application quickly and easily. Let us do the heavy lifting so you can focus on your busines
Step A.1 -> Creating an Application Source Bundle [http://docs.aws.amazon.com/elasticbeanstalk/latest/dg/using-features.deployment.source.html]
Fo this post, I will use some open source (wordpress). Will download from wordpress [https://wordpress.org/download/] and keep a ZIP file ready.
Step A.2 -> Create a new application
Simply follow one page wizard
Step A.3 -> Choose “Worker” or ” Web Server” enviroment.
As it is wordpress ( kind of website / web application), I will use “Web server” enviroment.
Step A.4 -> Create IAM Role for appropriate permissions else use existing one.
For this post, I will create a new Role
There are some differences between echo and print:
- echo – can output one or more strings
- print – can only output one string, and returns always 1
Tip: echo is marginally faster compared to print as echo does not return any value.
The PHP echo Statement
echo is a language construct, and can be used with or without parentheses: echo or echo().
The following example shows how to display different strings with the echo command (also notice that the strings can contain HTML markup):
echo “<h2>PHP is fun!</h2>”;
echo “Hello world!<br>”;
echo “I’m about to learn PHP!<br>”;
echo “This”, ” string”, ” was”, ” made”, ” with multiple parameters.”;
The PHP print Statement
print is also a language construct, and can be used with or without parentheses: print or print().
The following example shows how to display different strings with the print command (also notice that the strings can contain HTML markup):
print “<h2>PHP is fun!</h2>”;
print “Hello world!<br>”;
print “I’m about to learn PHP!”;
Since last few months, I am working on Clearcase (UCM one) . My project was in SVP phase. As usual, we were running out of time. Deadline followed by another deadline. Commitment always overrun and are being suger coated to client. As per working model, task were assigned to offshore colleague. offshore team mate made mistakes while check in files into wrong directory. Things went very bad and went to escalation. It was time to rely on computers and not on human beings. I decided to have a neat way of recursively adding a complete folder or directory to Clearcase’s source control. There is no rocket science here. It needs little bit of Google and got few very good tips.
It uses the clearfsimport command, which is intended to be used by the vob owner or a privileged user [ if you come here, you dont need to worry about vob owner 🙂 ] to import a copy of a directory tree.
By default, clearfsimport sets the time stamp of the new elements to that of the source objects (which is why the command requires privileged access), but if you use the -nsetevent flag, Clearcase won’t do anything special with the time stamps, and consequently, you can run it as a normal user.
I am sure, above will not make more sense and you are eager to see how things are done.
For this example, I’m going to import the folder[From] /tmp/Final-Config and all of its contents into the vob [To] /vobs/demo.
A: Set to View
B: Set an activity.
Step1: Check out the folder/directory that you want to import the directory tree into (which in my case is /vobs/demo):
Command to type : ct co /vobs/demo
Step 2:. Create the Final-Config folder in /vobs/demo:
Command to type : ct mkdir /vobs/demo/Final-Config
Step 3. Before we actually import all of the files, you can preview exactly what clearfsimport is going to import when you execute it. To do that, you need to use the -preview flag:
Command to type : clearfsimport -preview -rec -nsetevent /tmp/Final-Config/* /vobs/demo/Final-Config
-rec makes clearfsimport search the specified source path recursively
-nsetevent allows a normal user to run the command, as discussed earlier.
Step 4: If you’re sure that you want to import all of the listed files, simply remove the -preview flag, and execute the command:
Command to type : clearfsimport -rec -nsetevent /tmp/Final-Config/* /vobs/demo/Final-Config
This can take quite a while depending on the speed of your connection to the Clearcase repository, but it will do it all automatically without any interrupts required.
Step 5: Check in the /vobs/demo/Final-Config directory, if necessary, and the /vobs/demo directory.
Command to type :
ct ci /vobs/demo/Final-Config
ct ci /vobs/demo
Hope above will help you.
It is very important that children should study hard at schools. Time spent playing sport is time wasted. Do you agree?
One does not have to look far, in today’s competitive world, to see that to have a bright future; children need to develop expertise not only on academic level but also on sports front as well. There is a school of thought which contends that kids should focus only on studies as time spent on field is wastage of time. This will be proven wrong by analysing importance of sports at every stage of life.
Firstly, there is no denial that student should study hard during school days. However, important lessons of professional life such as team work and team spirit can be best learnt on fields. For example, numerous universities and schools have found that student’s regular participation in sports has helped students to learn team spirit rather quickly. Thus, it is clear that time spent of sports is actually time well spent.
Secondly, due to globalization, there are ample career opportunities present in sports sector. A student with good field level skills can earn millions of dollars which otherwise not possible. For instance, Usan Bolt has made big name and fame into 100 metres field track event. It is worth to mentions here that he was identified, nurtured and trained by his teacher when he was in standard three. From this it becomes quite evident that students have great prospects if they developed talent in sport by investing time at early stage of their life.
At the end of the day, I pen down saying that studies and sports should go parallel. However, vital lesson of life such as team engagement can be truly learnt via sports only. Moreover, time spent on sports is actually time well utilized as it could open door for great opportunity. It is hoped that more and more students will appreciate the significance of time allocation for sports for better life experience.
Technology is becoming increasingly prevalent in the world today. Given time, technology will completely replace the teacher in the classroom. Analyze both sides of this argument.
One doesn’t have to look far, in today’s technology driven world, to see that technology usage has been increased a lot in classroom. There is a school of thought which contends that it will abandon requirement of having teachers in the classroom. Conversely, others argue that despite heavy usage of technology, teachers will still play insignificant role in the classroom. Both these views will be analysed before a reasoned conclusion is drawn.
Firstly, it is abundantly clear that technology such as Internet has seen a rapid growth in recent time. It can transfer data like audio and visuals from one corner of the world to another like never before. For example, Harvard University has started virtual classrooms where neither students nor teachers need to physically present in the classroom. Moreover, teacher can simply record his class which can be played multiple times over and over as per student’s convenience. Thus, it is clear that view that says teachers will be obsolete in near future has garnered support.
At the other end of the spectrum, classes powered by technology have little to no control over knowledge gatherers. For instance, it is believed that student required watchful eye of a teacher to ensure that they are indeed learning and completing their assigned task. However, virtual classes have this limitation and they can’t provide this. It is obvious from this that view that says technology can’t replace teachers could also be plausible.
At the end of the day, both sides of argument regarding possibility of technology driven classroom have strong support. However, after analysing both camps, it is evident that idea of having a class entirely run by machines cannot be supported. As such, it is predicted that negative aspects of debate over teacherless classes will be forever be stronger than the positive ones and because of this technology will never replace teachers.
