It recently occurred to me that it would be convenient to have a dedicated section that lists the most common Dutch terms. Each term could then provide a brief explanation and references to relevant blog posts, and be linked to.

Thus there is the Glossary section now.

Tutorial: development with Yii/PHP/MySQL using Docker

Post image

It’s been about a year since I’ve switched to developing this website (built with Yii 2/PHP/MySQL) using Docker. After just one try I realised that Docker is the best thing happened to development. Well, after Vim, of course.

So I’ve decided to write a brief tutorial on setting up a dockerised development environment, in the hope it could be helpful for those who never tried Docker or experience difficulties getting started.

So long two thousand sixteen

Post image

The turbulent two thousand sixteen has come to an end. The year that has brought so much grief to our world. The year in which Sun Caged and Stream of Passion ceased to exist. I’m inclined to think it’s good that it’s over.

yktoo.com 2.0

Post image

It cost me quite an effort to make myself migrate my website to Yii 2.

And now, after about one and a half months of evening work (with breaks for workouts, birthday celebrations, recovering from insomnia and things like that) I can proudly present yktoo.com version 2.0.

The website has been built on Yii framework 2.0 and Bootstrap 3, with a handful of extensions. Thanks to Bootstrap the website is built on the principles of responsive web design. This should make the pages look reasonably well on a broad range of devices, from mobile phones to desktops.

The structure of the website has also been revisited: the blog feed is now right on the home page, and other sections have been moved around too. Due to that your RSS reader might show the last posts once again, sorry for that.

A short announcement about a new subscription option.
