There’s a disease that plagues every digital agency, the sentences that push the assumption-o-meter into the red. “Can we just”, “it’s simple”, “it won’t take long” just to name a few. These sentences induce panic attacks for us developers, beads of ‘panic’ sweat engulf our heads as the words come tumbling from account managers’ mouths. So why are these phrases so damaging?

Aside from writing tutorials for this site, I like to keep myself busy on personal projects to build my skills and offer something to the world. My last personal project being Tides UK, a site providing tide information for over 600 UK locations.
I love to travel and go to as many new places as I can. There’s so much I’d like to share from my travels, but I feel there isn’t a WordPress theme out there which is good or quick enough.

WordPress 4.2 introduced a new emoji feature which many were quick to criticise, partly because large parts of the WordPress user community simply didn’t want emoji support, but from what I can gather from forum threads like this, the ugly code it left behind was just not necessary, especially as a core feature that can’t be disabled through the CMS. Don’t worry it can be removed easily.
I’ve been quietly working away on a personal project over the past few months, it’s now live. Tides UK provides tide times for over 700 UK destinations as well as some in British territories such as the Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Falklands and Gibraltar. Visit the site and take a look around.
I’m writing this article following a number of requests, and a bit of a follow-up to a previous tutorial “Turn your Raspberry Pi 3 into a PHP 7 powered web server“. This tutorial will guide you through steps to install MySQL Server on your Raspberry Pi.
In this tutorial I’m going to go through the steps to install Apache2 and PHP 7.0 on your Raspberry Pi 3, to create the ultimate low-powered, super quick web server.
I’m going to assume that you have Raspbian installed on your Raspberry Pi 3. For the best results, I recommend running Raspbian from a USB Flash drive rather than a MicroSD card. See my tutorial on how to do this.
