PHP is the successor to PHP/FI, created in 1994 by Rasmus Lerdorf to track visits to his online resume. This was a simple set of CGI (Common Gateway Interface) binaries written in C. In 1995 Rasmus released it to the public as an open-source technology and encouraged users to improve it.
Have you finally been given the opportunity that you worked for so long? And just when you thought you reached all your goals, you made a mistake that made you think it was all over.
I found myself in that dark and ominous place once. I finally got the opportunity that I dreamed about for so long, and shortly after, I made a stupid and foolish mistake. Fearing that I would get fired because my boss would think I was not a fit for the position, I kept it to myself.
I was extremely stressed and frustrated because I felt…
We all dream of someone extraordinary that can bring happiness and joy to our lives. More than anything, we want someone we can rely on no matter what. A companion that will be there to support us even during our darkest hours.
But, sometimes, it seems nearly impossible to find that perfect partner that we dream so much about. And we do not want to risk too much because breakups are emotionally draining, and dating can be costly — especially for men — and time-consuming.
The reality is that it is not easy to meet the “perfect” match in a…
The Bible is an extremely controversial book. While millions view it as the guide for humankind’s life, it holds little or no significance for others. Since the scientific revolution, millions of people have dismissed this ancient collection of stories as mere fantasy and fairytales. I was once such a person.
When I first concluded that the Bible was not the inspired word of God, I was disillusioned. I could not find value in its words anymore, and for a long time, I saw it as a total waste of resources.
As my emotions settled and I recovered from the wound…
A few years ago, I was having doubts about my religious beliefs. I felt lost, confused, and without purpose. Leaving my religion meant leaving many of my friends behind. However, I wanted to live a life without so many restrictions on my heart and mind.
I wanted to contribute build a better society without prejudice or judgment. I was not happy with religious dogmas that condemn humans for feeling natural emotions and engaging in natural behaviors.
The more I learned, the less happy I was with religion; however, I couldn’t let it go despite feeling this way. The thought of…
Mounted on a donkey, Jesus entered Jerusalem, and a large crowd joyfully gathered around him shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David;
Blessed is the One who comes in the name of the Lord;
Hosanna in the highest!”
This was an important event in Jesus’ life because it was a fulfillment of scriptures. Nearly every movie about Jesus contains a scene of this event. However, upon examining Matthew’s version of the story, it is unclear what took place.
It was a hot summer night when my husband suddenly began to roll incessantly all over the bed. I had no idea that night that, lurking in the dark, some evil bugs waited to wage war against us.
I was alarmed at the sight of my husband rolling all over the bed and jerking, “What is the matter with you?” I asked.
He said that he was itchy, so I offered to scratch him so long as he stopped behaving like a fish out of the water. But no matter how much I scratched him, he was still itchy. …
When God YHWH created humankind, as stated in the Bible, he did so with a plan in mind. He wanted them to have children and live in the garden where he had placed them. But that was a total failure because he also put a tree in the garden that they were not supposed to eat from, but they did.
However, He was not about to give up so easily. To redeem his creation from doom, he quickly devised a plan to restore the order of things.
When I was a college student, I dreamt of a great future as a web developer. All my classmates were equally excited about their journeys. We couldn't wait to finish college and get our first programming jobs. It was going to be a life-changing experience for us all. I imagined myself making a decent salary while enjoying my life — my future looked promising.
I never thought, however, how difficult life would be as a junior developer. It was not until after I graduated that I realized that programming has its drawbacks. …
