today is the day when students all around the world start to officially write code and blogs for Google Summer of Code project. This also has to include me. I am a little bit sad to say this, but my RPMs will not be rocketing to the skies for now. I have two (yes two) exams on Friday. For now all my thoughts are with these two, and with another project work that I am doing with my course mate.
But still, I spent some time setting up my development environment. I have successfully created a fork of phpMyAdmin code in repo.or.cz for all my coding needs. When the time came to set up git in my Windows machine I ran into one little problem. It seems that puttygen does not generate private/public keys in the exact format that ssh (on msysgit) accepts. Well this little thing cost me about an hour. |:
I am still not sure what IDE to use. For hardcore PHP projects I used NetBeans. It was a long time since I worked on any huge PHP project so every time it was enough to fire up FileZilla and Notepad++. I had a couple of Java projects this year and this is why I had to start using Eclipse. Still not really sure if that is good working with phpMyAdmin.
So for now this is all the news. I will keep on doing my school chores. Next Monday I will have some serious coding blog post. See you then.
