Short Tutorial on Docker, PHP and MySQL

In this simple tutorial I’m gonna teach you some basic tricks about a skinny LAMP application containerized with Docker.

One of the main focuses of Docker is to solve a common problem in developing and deploying complex applications, which is known as “The Matrix from Hell”.

When designing an application stack which is more than trivial, you have to take care of the compatibility between different version of tools and languages and their dependecies, which have to coexist in the same machine.

The Docker virtual environment

With Docker, you solve this problem by instantiating different light-weight machines in a single host, without the need to create real virtual machines on the cloud and spending a lot more: a Docker container consumes a lot less resources.

Wine 3.0 released, it’ll bring Windows Apps to your Android device

On January the 18th it was released a new stable release of Wine, the 3.0. The original meaning of the recursive acronym is “Wine Is Not an Emulator”.

So Wine, instead of emulating internal Windows logic like a virtual machine or emulator such as VirtualBox do (remember that a virtual machine is like a full operating system inside another) translates Windows API calls to Android API calls on-the-fly, reducing the performance and memory penalties of other methods.
