Wordpress Development

Hi ya'll,

So I am currently on holiday and wanting to keep busy, you know what they say about idle hands :)

So I decided since WordPress is being used by more and more organisations out there.

Setting up the development environment:

Ok so I thought it would be the easiest thing in the world I mean what could possibly go wrong with just clicking a few buttons
WRONG!!!

To my luck I found this awesomely cool website by the foxiest ladies in the Tech world called: ITCUTIESCuties they are indeed :P. I followed their advice on the video How to Install WordPress on a Windows platform (I am running a Windows 8 pro edition Operating system)

Below are the instructions and some of the errors I ran into:


  • Download Wampserver and install it (it comes with Apache, MySQL, PHP, PHPMyAdmin, SQLBuddy, XDebug): 
    • Choose the directory in which you wish to install it
    • Click finish and the server should be online (You will see it is either green or orange)
    • On the Wampserver icon on the notifications pane click on PHPMyAdmin
    • It should automatically give you the login screen 
      • If you get an error message:

        HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found


        !it could be that some other application is running on port 80 which is the default port
      • To resolve this: goto the Wampserver icon Apache>httpd
        • Change the Listen 80 to Listen 81 or anyother port that might be open, Save your settings and restart the wampserver
        • When you open the PHPMyAdmin again do not forget to specify the port number i.e. localhost:81/phpmyadmin 
        • This should work if not have a look StackOverFlow
    • After login Username: root Password: blank (PS: Don't type blank!)
      • Click on Users>Add User> Fill in the username and password and since I will be using my computer to develop change the Host--> Local + Under database for user click on Create database with same name and grant all privileges
      • Verify that all is created! 
  • Now Download WordPress from: http://wordpress.org/download
    • Extract the download and move it to the \wamp\www\ directory
    • After this go to your browser and enter the URL localhost:81/wordpress: This should open a page that asks you to create a configuration file --> Click on it
    • Proceed to fill in all the details and click on submit
    • Click login and you enter the credentials you just created and you are logged into WordPress 
Happy coding, I will post from time to time my progress :)

Laterz,
G!

Story time: How I learned of being more...

It is often funny when one wishes to write a story about their journey: a journey in most cases at the beginning. In this short write-up, I wish to share with you the concept of limited scope. This is about my transformation, how it came about and how chance changed my life forever. I remember clearly as day being grade 12 -high school- learners, with my friends discussing future plans of futures bright. Secretly, I did not know what I wanted after high school. See, I grew up in a system that says, go to school, go to varsity, get a job and be successful (whatever that means). At the time of being grade 12 learners, there was a new wave of thinking, leaning more towards doing what you love. The thing is, I am one of those people with many "loves". Long story short, my friends and I all wanted to become engineers, myself being great at chemistry, felt chemical engineering would best suit me. Plans were made, UNI’s applied to and final exams are written

HCD vs UCD vs CCD

Hi ya'll, For some time now I have been contemplating where I should give my 2 cents on the Human Centered Design (HCD) vs User Centered Design (UCD) vs Customer Centered Design (CCD) debate. It is a tricky and sticky situation to be in when you are talking to someone and say; hey so do you guys do UCD? and this I feel it sometimes a trick question because if you say yes then there are other questions like: why not HCD or CCD? Well, to the best of my understanding HCD refers to putting the "human" in the center of your design decisions. This means not only the user but includes all the stakeholders that are involved in product design. It is prudent to state that user does not always mean it is a human being as some systems are designed as input for other systems and so forth. UCD on the other hand is something that has made the rounds and many still think that it is the holy grail. Well they are right as long as their project requirements dictate that i.e. I am doin
