comment How can I make my PHP development environment more efficient?
Your dev machine should be the same stack as your production machine. Use samba to create a network share, and that solves the moving-files problem. Take a look at the zend tools for debugging to see what they have. If at all possible, use full databases, version control, etc...

comment Converting lib from other language to python and Rights issue
This brings up the question of copyrighting specific code, or patenting specific functionality... Not that it matters, considering that it is an apache-licensed library. But ideas come from many places, including existing projects. You are rewriting, not translating, btw.

@gbjbaanb: Google started out being called "back rub", because the main feature of the search engine then was the ability to rank pages based on links, etc...

comment Why learn git when there are GUI apps for GitHub?
Actually, the concepts behind git are so simple that people cannot figure them out -- they are looking for something harder.

comment Should I organize my folders by business domain or by technical domain?
@FlorianMargaine: I am illustrating how Microsoft did it, with the (possibly flawed) assumption that they put a lot of engineering effort into picking the more sensible way. Hope it gives some input.

comment “Viral” license that only blocks legal actions of user and developer against each other
@ŁukaszZaroda: Or, if you GPL your code, then that carries the viral part. Here is a piece of advice: just pick a decent licence and write some code. If the code becomes popular, win, and you are protected under the GPL/BSD/Apache, etc... If your code does not become popular, then you didn't lose either (a lot of time and effort on unnecessary legal issues).

comment “Viral” license that only blocks legal actions of user and developer against each other
@ŁukaszZaroda: I don't understand what you are saying. If you BSD license your code, and someone uses it for a larger project, you are not the author of the larger project... where is your theory of liability coming from? What this sounds like is you just need to do some more research and get a list of good questions together for a good business attorney, and have a meeting. As bizarre as the legal system is sometimes, there are still a lot of good things about it that do make sense.

Oh, my bad. Thanks! I didn't see the i incrementing in the outer loop.

comment How can I compute the Big-O notation for a given piece of code?
@dasblinkenlight: can you clarify why this is (n^2)? It is a nested loop, but it seems that j is a constant, therefore, it would not be squared, but rather O(n). (not very familiar with this notation, so an explanation would be great).

comment Code bases for desktop and mobile versions of the same app
In a .net windows/web app, we split it into common, web, windows -- and used branches for purpose, not splitting the code. Separate repos sounds very annoying, because you cannot track code changes that relate to each other together.

comment Can jQuery be used server side?
CoffeeScript is an alternate syntax for JavaScript which compiles into JavaScript. Apples and oranges with jQuery.
