      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

  1. I've been doing Node.js code review and tutoring for a while now, and I figured I'd try my hand at running a promo. So, for the coming week, I'm offering five hours of Node.js tutoring for only €100 (about $113 at current exchange rates). That's €20 per hour, a 20%-60% discount over my usual rates of €25-€50! :) In these five hours, I'll be getting you up to speed with Node.js - you'll learn all the basics you need to get started with it, and find your way around. The tutoring is one-on-one, so you get 100% of the attention and time, and you can ask any questions you have in the process. This offer is valid until June 24, 2015. What you will be doing and learning We'll go through the basics of Node.js, Express, and Jade. You'll build a very simple 'real-world web application' - for example, a to-do list, a shoutbox, a blog, or anything similarly basic that you might feel like building. By the time we're done, you will have a basic working application, and a good foundation to start building more complex projects. The different topics we'll address: Setting things up (installing Node.js, creating a new project, searching for and installing modules) Javascript and Node.js mechanics (callbacks/async, error handling, promises, creating modules, prototypical inheritance) Express.js (Express.js itself, Jade, common Express.js middleware) Databases (PostgreSQL, Knex) Anything else that might come up while building your small project. Requirements Motivation to learn. A code editor (some good options are Brackets, Geany, Notepad++, etc.) The ability to access GitHub Gist; if you are in China, you may need a proxy. A basic understanding of HTML and Javascript syntax (not strictly required, but without this prior knowledge, we probably won't be able to finish in 5 hours). A basic understanding of how to operate a terminal/commandline. You can use any operating system, but keep in mind that Windows can cause problems with Node.js sometimes - you will need to install Visual Studio, not all Node.js modules might work out of the box, and Windows has some issues with long paths. If you have the ability to work/test on a Linux or OS X system, that's preferable. A database will be provided, you won't have to set up PostgreSQL yourself (although it's advisable to learn this at a later point, of course). Price €100 for 5 hours. If you meet the requirements listed above, it shouldn't take longer than that. Note that this must be paid upfront. You can pay through Bitcoin, PayPal, or SEPA transfer. If you already know the basics of Node.js, you may also use the 5 hours for other Node.js-related tutoring - however, keep in mind that I can't guarantee we'll be entirely finished within those 5 hours. I'm also still available for other work at my usual rate :) Alright, where do I sign up?! Simply send me a PM on here, e-mail me at [email protected], or talk to me on XMPP ([email protected]) or IRC (joepie91 on Freenode)!
