What you need to know about buying items at retail tax free, and avoiding the associated pitfalls
I've been working on a full-blown course for Egghead the last few months and it has finally been published!
I'd highly recommend this course as it covers each of the twelve-factors separately, and how they relate to Node.js and Docker.
In this course we will take a simple Node.js app that connects to a MongoDB database and uses an Express web server, and learn how to setup a full software development deployment process as well as how to properly “Dockerize” the app.
We’ll step through setting up proper version control techniques, managing configuring within the environment, setting up proper build/deploy/run processes, and all with abiding by Docker best…
With seasonal Amazon purchases reaching an all-time high, how can your business stay competitive?
In order to retain and attract new customers, it is every retailer’s responsibility to ensure customer shopping experience is more than just mere satisfaction. With this attempt, retailers are now extending retail management beyond their products, by taking into account the busy lifestyles of customers and providing services. In this sense, a retail management system ...

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Just Enough C for PHP. Earlier posts include Just Enough C for PHP, and Just Enough C for PHP: Running C Programs. This is the most recent post in the series. Today’s episode of Just Enough C for PHP is light on code and heavy on core concepts. First, we’re going to describe using basic variables in a C program. Then, we’re going to take a detour into how C manages the computer’s memory for those variables. You may be tempted to skip the second part, but we recommend you […]

While not as sexy as AI robots, data is changing commerce in unprecedented ways for retailers who use it well
Customers expect the same consistency and convenience in B2B transactions as they do in B2C
One long time resident of my ~/bin folder is lns lns — a friendly program for making symbolic links For whatever reason I’ve never been able to get the argument order to ln -s memorized. The lns perl script (which has always run out of the box on system provided perl without issue) make it so I never need to. Whether you lns path/to/file path/to/new-link or lns path/to/new-link path/to/file the script does the right thing and creates the symlink, or tells you in plain english why it can’t. Mentioning the script here mainly because google seems less and less able […]
Speaking of composer and sematnic versioning, here’s a neat web page that will List all the avaiable versions of a particular packagist package Highlight which versions composer will pick when you use a particular set of SemVer characters Useful when you’re chasing down composer dependencies — although this project (as of this writing) doesn’t seem PHP version aware and (obviously) is unaware of your composer.lock file, both of which can effect which packages composer thinks you need.
While Laravel’s a fantastic framework, I don’t think anyone would ascribe Plays Well with Others as a core tennant of the project. i.e. Using individual Laravel components like the Eloquent ORM in your own projects is never a straight forward affair. They’re just not designed for that use case. This makes projects like WouterJEloquentBundle a life saver if you’re using Symfony. From the README The WouterJEloquentBundle claims to integrate the Eloquent ORM into the Symfony framework.
I checked some code into pestle (my PHP command-line framework and Magento 2 code generation tool) for the first time in a bit, and was greeted with a broken travis build (for PHP 5.6). Digging into the problem, I saw a sight that’s become increasingly familiar to PHP developers in recent years $ composer install Loading composer repositories with package information Installing dependencies (including require-dev) from lock file Your requirements could not be resolved to an installable set of packages. Problem 1 - Installation request for phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock 4.1.1 -> satisfiable by phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock[4.1.1]. - phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock 4.1.1 requires php ^7.0 -> your […]
ROAS (Return on Ad Spend) is a popular metric that can help businesses evaluate with if their campaigns are successful. It’s a simple calculation of ad spend divided by revenue. It will tell you how much revenue you earned for every dollar spent. Try our ROAS calculator.
It can often be confused with ROI (Return on Investment), and too often marketers will rely on merchants using the terms superfluously to inflate their success. 300% ROI sounds great right? However, ROAS is much different. ROI takes into account other expenditures and gives you a much clearer idea of profit. Whereas ROAS does not give you any indication of what your profit is.Related: Meet Customers Where They are in the Buying Process – The Decision Path
