I used to study Faculty of Informatics of Czech Technical University and a lot of materials I used during studying for exams and tests was placed on web portal called fit-wiki.cz. It is a wiki like website run by students for students. You ask admin to create account for you and through simple verification that you are student you can enter. Then you can leverage years of collected materials, presentations, tasks, links for resources and mainly previous exams.
One might be surprised but those who know me won’t. One day I was trying to solve a problem with some code and after few google searches I end up browsing through one blog. I don’t remember the site nor the solution I found there but one thing stuck in my mind. I need my own dev blog! “Ok, but what are you gonna write about? You are the one looking for help, you don’t have anything to share with others.
For a lot of websites I build I use git for version control. I always used ftp client such as FileZilla to upload files to web hosting. But it gets annoying as you got more websites to manage. You have to login to ftp, click through GUI to find your folders. It is time consuming. So one day I decided to use GitLab CI/CD to build and deploy websites to web hosting.
