PHP Power Button: VMware vCloud SDK

first_img7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Developers have access to a growing number of options for spinning up virtual machines. With each new software release from virtualization titans such as VMware there are also developer community efforts such as VI Java API with a wide base of contributors. Just as the contributors expand so do the options for developers familiar with other languages.Let’s take a look at how VMware is expanding options with a recent beta that targets the PHP developer community.Here Comes BetaThe VMware vCloud SDK for PHP Beta is an example of expansion in available language support for the PHP developer community. The appending of beta speaks to the path and desire for inclusion longer term. Indeed, sometimes the popularity within a developer community that includes paying customers can have an impact on a company roadmap. Perhaps this post regarding PHP and VMware reflects how continued pursuit of more options can benefit the PHP developer community.Hit the Power Button PHPleaseHere’s a simple example for powering on a virtual machine in just a few lines of code from one of the documents on the VMware developer community portal:Resources and RecoursesMore resources are available within the VMware community portal (free registration required). Once you are logged in you can review documents such as the vCloud SDK for PHP introduction and the programming guide will get you started quickly. For now, those appear to be the only formal resources RWH was able to find for this post.A quick search on “PHP” within the VMware community portal returns hundreds of discussions, documents, and blog posts. However, you’ll need to be mindful of the quality of those search hits. While “hundreds” of hits might seem like a lot or a little depending on your point of view, it’s important to understand that many of the resources mentioned are going to be comments that make reference to websites with a URL ending in .php or that contain references to index.php where RewriteRule was not enabled. Unfortunately, not all developer community portals have the sophistication of Google (yet) when it comes to searching on blobs of text and mixed file types for a generic term like “PHP”.In short, now is your chance to create meaningful and relevant paths within the community portal!Of course, there are other resources outside of the corporate portals to help you understand a specific product better. For example, if you are curious about what the object model for vCloud API would look like in a picture, head over to Steve Jin’s blog for the UML diagram. If you are currently working with VMware or within a VMware shop, do you expect to make use of the vCloud SDK using PHP? Are you a PHP developer that is active in the VMware community portal and if so does this latest beta excite you? What resources have you come across in your own searches?Let us know in the comments below! Related Posts How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees?

Corini: ‘Brescia dominated after break’

first_imgEugenio Corini maintains Brescia “dominated the second half, but should’ve closed down” the Inter strikers earlier in a 2-1 defeat. Lautaro Martinez opened the scoring with a deflected strike, then Romelu Lukaku doubled it with a scorcher from distance. Dimitri Bisoli’s finish ricocheted in off Milan Skriniar. “It was a good performance, we had to settle, as we’ve only been working with this system for a couple of days and at the start we didn’t have the right shape,” the coach told Sky Sport Italia. “We went behind with a bit of bad luck, but then dominated the second half and pushed to the very end. We should’ve closed down both Lukaku and Lautaro, but we were too passive in our defending. In Serie A, there are players who can put the ball in the net from 25 metres out. “Unfortunately, the ball didn’t want to go in, so we go home empty-handed, but I am proud of this team for many reasons. “It was the response I wanted from a team in a difficult situation and an uphill struggle, but I never doubted these players anyway. “We must realise our dimension and our role in this season. We had two debutants in Serie A this evening, so if we don’t realise where we came from, where we are and what we want to achieve, it’ll all become more difficult. “The analysis should be also on the way we played the game, not just the results. I understand the popular conception of our campaign, but I want what is best for Brescia and I don’t feel that this ‘in or out’ approach is healthy for anyone.” Mario Balotelli was certainly more impressive than at the weekend with Genoa, but still has only one goal this season for Brescia. “I realise Mario attracts a lot of attention, but we need to just leave him alone to grow and develop in the role, to understand the context he is in. A great player combines talent with other attributes and I am proud to help accompany him in this journey, but I can only do so much and he is the one who has to take the final step.” Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more.

Xhaka looking for house in Milan

first_imgArsenal outcast Granit Xhaka is reportedly looking for a property in Milan, as his link to the Rossoneri strengthens before the transfer window this January. Milan have been linked to the Swiss 27-year-old this week and now RSI reports that Xhaka has been studying the property market in Italy’s fashion capital. The Arsenal midfielder hasn’t played for The Gunners since he reacted with anger towards the club’s fans during a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace last month. He has also been stripped from his captaincy by Unai Emery, who is now ready to let the Switzerland international leave the club. Milan’s managing director and former Gunner Ivan Gazidis might be ready to give the player he brought to London in 2016 a new opportunity at San Siro.

Apparently, NC State’s football team would appreciate if she stopped by to say hello while she’s in town. Unfortunately, that means that they produced the world’s worst “Shake It Off” parody video (and that’s saying something).There isn’t much else we can say to prepare you for this, so, here:Hey @TaylorSwift13 we did THIS to get you to come see us when you’re in town tomorrow! https://t.co/mSO3LoTHbY pic.twitter.com/h2apnYX26p— NC State Football (@PackFootball) June 8, 2015We somehow doubt that it’s going to persuade her to join them in their weight room.last_img read more

Seized MT Badr Sets Sail from Burgas ReFlagged and Renamed

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: GNMTC The Libyan-flagged crude oil tanker MT Badr that was seized by Bulgarian authorities in 2017, has been renamed and taken over by Bulgarian-based oil and gas contractor Bulgargeomin, the General National Maritime Transport Company of Libya (GNMTC) said in an update, stressing the transfer of ownership was illegal. As informed, the ship left Burgas anchorage on December 28, 2018, with a new crew on board, with the sailing permission issued by the Bulgarian Marine Administration and provisional Panama-flag certificate. GNMTC said that the provisional flag was revoked by Panama’s Maritime Authority a day before the ship left the port, slamming the actions as illegal.The sequence of events followed Badr’s seizure by Bulgarian border police on December 21, while at Burgas anchorage, and subsequent removal of the ship’s crew from the vessel.The ship had been detained by the Port Authority of Burgas since November 2017 over an alleged unpaid mortgage to Bulgargeomin. The company denied the claims that it owed a USD 9.23 million mortgage on the crude oil carrier, saying the mortgage was falsified. In January 2018, the Bulgarian Supreme Court ordered the vessel’s release, however, the vessel remained in detention ever since.Furthermore, according to the court documents, dated November 2018, the translation of which was provided by GNMTC to World Maritime News, the Supreme court cancelled the order for the seizure of the ship, and ordered Maritime Administration to compensate GNMTC damages for legal proceedings.As disclosed,  the court decided that BGM did not have corporate legal status that allows them to be a valid party in any court procedures, being a consortium of three companies Moran West Ltd, Moran Trade and Tectona Ltd.Separately, press office of Bulgargeomin said in a statement that all the documents seeking damages and MT Badr as collateral were legitimate, in line with the contract from 2013 signed by Hristina Ivanova Stamova, liquidator of the state owned Bulgargeoin EAD and Bulgargeomin.The company added that it was the only bidder in the subsequent official public auction for the sale of MT Badr, which was awarded to Bulgargeomin LTD in the presence of both sides of the case.“As a legitimate owner of MT Badr by virtue of award of ownership certificate (Write of Ownership) on movable property (MT Badr) dated at August 30, 2018, entered into full legal force on September 15, 2018, and not subject to appeal, Bulgargeomin changed the flag and register as the new owner of the ship. On December 13, 2018, the Panamanian Maritime Authority issued a provisional registration certificate for MT Badr with a registered new owner “Bulgargeomin Ltd” DZZD, and a new name Bdin,” the statement reads.GNMTC claims the letter of award was forged and that the order did not enter into valid legal force.“The basic starting activities of the auction as well as some of the formalities and documents concerned were finally revoked by the District Court of Bourgas on 21. Dec 2018 which makes the whole auction invalid and the vessel need to be considered as not sold at all. Unfortunately, the judgment is dated on 21 but it was visible as text on 27 of December,” GNMTC further stressed.On the other hand, GNMTC claims that the reflaging was based on “misleading documents” as Bulfarfeomin claimed it was the new owner, which GNMTC denies to be true. The company noted that the process is underway of returning the ship to Libyan flag registry.“From 21 to 27 of December, all relevant authorities were informed of all the details and were officially informed about these illegal actions – the Prosecution, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Border Police, the Marine Administration and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,” GNMTC said, adding that the transfer of the vessel possession is being appealed.The company added that an appeal process was also underway against Marine Administration’s sailing permission, which GNMTC described as “wrongful and unlawful.”“We, Libyan Navigator Limited, as legitimate and valid ship-owner if the vessel Badr, will require and seek only one thing-the pure and real justice from the Bulgarian judicial system and the relevant informational judicial authorities and courts,” the company further noted in a statement.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

PRRD hosting Connecting Communities Trails Workshop Tuesday

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. -The Peace River Regional District is hosting their Connecting Communities Trails Workshop this Tuesday.The workshop aims to investigate the feasibility of trails that could connect Dawson Creek with Pouce Coupe, and Fort St John with Charlie Lake. The study will consider possible routes, types of uses, as well as costs and benefits of building trails.The PRRD is looking for the public’s help in giving feedback on why they believe the communities need the trails. Feedback will be integral in determining whether the PRRD will develop the trails in the long run. Costs of the project will depend on the public’s feedback. For example, paved trails would cost more than gravel trails.Once the feasibility study concludes it will be brought forward to the Regional Board to consider whether the project moves to the construction phase.The workshop will be held at the North Peace Cultural Centre from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. this Tuesday.last_img read more
