Codility actually rocks…

I’m passing through guided programming courses on Codility these weekends, as much as time allows me.

Couple of notes connected to that experience…

First, the practices are excellent. They start off gently and then get to really interesting problems. I am writing this under the influence of unexpected solution to the one of them which I didn’t see coming for a while as I was banging my head on the desk. :-) That’s the good part.

The bad part? Continue reading “Codility actually rocks…”

Python SAR (sysstat) parsing module (pre) released

And now something completely different and as unexpected as the Spanish inquisition! Another release of Python module to PyPi and GitHub.

This time it’s a SAR (sysstat service) log file parser. If you are a UNIX/linux sysadmin and not sure what SAR is, head on here, and here for introduction on the subject. Continue reading “Python SAR (sysstat) parsing module (pre) released”

Python packages deployed to PyPi

I am very pleased to announce that Python packages Axigen-API and software_versions are now available through PyPi. They should have been from the start but… :-)

Of course, Github repositories are at the same place (Axigen-API @ github, software_versions @ github), with the reorganized codebase so now you can pull them and do usual python setup procedure.

Anatomy of PHP Shells – my talk at FSEC conference

You can check out my latest talk at FSEC, regional security conference (held at FOI university in Varaždin, Croatia) here at SlideShare.

Please leave a comment if you are interested in seeing the slides and SlideShare is not good enough for you, for any reason. :-)

Holding a talk at FSEC conference was a pleasant experience. Great talks, excellent crew, even better audience, extremely pretty town. I hope I see you all next year.

Obligatory credit: the talk was co-authored by my young colleague Ivan Špoljarić.

Weekend Python+Django project: Quotes

Woo-hoo! It’s that time of the year when heat is wearing off, people get back to work and programmers do new weekend projects. :-)

Meet Quotes @ Krivokuca.eu, my latest open source effort.  It is written to demonstrate my skills in modern technologies (Django MVC Python web framework, mobile-first adaptive design methodology, understanding of relational and nosql database concepts, comfortability of working with modern javascript libraries like jQuery…).

It is also made to show off how I’m more cool than you, hence what I read is way more cool than your recently-read library. :-)

It’s not a big thing, but it took me 2 weekends to write it and start filling up its databases with entries.

Oh yes, it’s open source also!
