Next Level Ops Podcast: Modern Web Development Tools with Brian

Hello Pleskians! This week we’re back with the tenth and final episode of the Official Plesk Podcast: Next Level Ops.  We’re already at the close of the season and we’d like to thank every single one of our guests and listeners, as well as our host for being a part of Next Level Ops! In this installment, Superhost Joe chats with Brian Richards, Creator of WPSessions , about essential web development tools for modern web developers.

In This Episode: jQuery Turns 14, Brian’s Toolkit for Web Development, and Leveling Up

What coding tools are there for the everyday web developer? With a great amount of web development tools out there, how do you decide which ones to have in your toolbox? How can you level up your skills and find new tools to use? All of this and more in this episode of Next Level Ops.

“Knowing which tools to look for is the entire battle. So, where do you find the tools that help make your job easier? How do you know that they actually work as advertised? Why should you trust them? When can you trust them?” – Brian Richards, Creator of WPsessions

Use Code Linting

First of all, you can start with some concepts to get familiar with. For example, code linting helps you find errors in your code while you’re writing your code. It shows you where you’ve inserted a character that breaks your code depending on the language you’re coding in.

Configure Your Code Editor

Second, Brian recommends that you find a code editor that you love. Moreover, you can configure the code editor of your choice to be more productive for you by changing short codes and adding code completion and formatting. A few changes like this and it will customize your code editor to be the best choice for you. Keep in mind that instead of looking for the next shiny product, use the tools that work for you and stick to them. Keep reading for recommended code editors and local development tools below.

Follow Coding Standards

Additionally, for coding it’s important to adapt some kind of coding standards and making sure that you follow them. Following standards should help you avoid running into bugs. Learn about local development environments that help you build projects for the web while offline. There are many tools specialized for the platform and languages you want to work with.

Love the Command Line

And last but not least, become familiar with and begin to love the command line. So, read on to find the key takeaways of recommended tools and strategies from Brian to orient your web development._ This list is a must-have for web developers so better bookmark this page!_

Next Level Ops Podcast: Working with Self-hosting Email with Christian Mollekopf

What should you consider when choosing an email hosting provider? What are some of the options users have when searching for good email providers, especially if you also want to look at enterprise options? Is it good enough to opt for what your web host offers or to use a service like GSuite? What are some of the things you should think about when going the self-hosting route? In this episode, Joe and Christian discuss how to address options and issues surrounding email hosting.

“I think usually it [email] is something that you are going to use for quite a long time. It’s like a very central part of your infrastructure typically. So, I think it’s definitely worth considering a couple of options,” says Christian. When choosing the right hosting provider, it’s worth considering things like what are the features you require, whether it’s simply email or also calendars and tasks, whether you need shared folders and calendars, and which type of client do you want. Another factor to consider is vendor lock in – just in case you want to transfer to another hosting provider and how easy will it be for you to migrate your data to another system.

If vendor lock in is an issue of concern for you, then the question arises whether you can self-host your email. What happens when you do that? Some common issues to watch out for are to make sure that other servers can distinguish between genuine email coming from your server and spam coming from other servers, pretending to come from your server, to ensure that your server doesn’t send spam, and reputation management of your domain. To read some of the best practices of self-hosting email, go here.

Key Takeaways

In This Episode: Choosing An Email Hosting Provider, Reputation Management and Taking Back Control - Next Level Ops Podcast: Working with Self-hosting Email with Christian Mollekopf - Plesk

  • What should someone consider when choosing an email hosting provider? Your email is probably going to be a central part of the infrastructure and you’ll use it for a long time to start out by keeping this in mind. The second thing is to consider the features you need, such as a calendar, for example. Do consider your email’s interoperability and vendor lock-in. You should be able to migrate away if you want to.
  • What are the benefits of self-hosting over using a service like Gmail? One word: Control. You maintain control over your solution. If you self-host, you have more control over your email.
  • As a hosting provider, what are some of the pitfalls of hosting email? The biggest pitfall is reputation management. Other services that receive email have to fight a lot of spam. Track the reputation of domains and IP addresses.
  • What features in Plesk help with email hosting? SPF, DMARK, DKIM are built-in. Other UIs for important measures like rate and message size limits and the Plesk Email Security extension with anti-spam. Find out more about the features here.

…Alright Pleskians, it’s time to hit the play button if you want to hear the rest. If you’re interested in hearing more from Next Level Ops, check out the rest of our podcasts. We’ll be back soon with our last installment.

Podcast production in Melbourne is now a reality. If you want to make your podcast, you need to find a podcast production company and show them what you have that could be a goldmine. In this article, I will reveal all about podcasting in Melbourne.

Podcast production in Melbourne has become so much easier now. There are so many podcasters now that it has become hard to keep up with all their latest podcast events. Some people have podcast production set up, and they are podcasting every single day. This is good because it means that if you are podcasting, you are probably popular enough that other people would want to podcast as well.

I have personally podcasted before. My podcast was a fashion industry podcast. It was a great learning experience and just something fun to do. The podcast is still going strong six years later. If you podcast, you are probably on the same journey as when I started. It’s not always easy, and it can be stressful at times. It’s always good to seek help from others that are experienced in podcasting. Let’s take a look at some of the top places in Melbourne to podcast for profit.

Podfest is the place in Melbourne that I always go to when I am feeling stressed out and ready to podcast. There are over 20 places that you can podcast at once, making it a fantastic place to be, and everyone is free to come and go as they please. There are usually other live events happening simultaneously, so you can pick up some great sponsors or guests to help your podcast.

A cool thing that they do at Podfest is having contests and encourage feedback. You can have your podcast judged by experts in podcast production, and the audience will vote for the best podcast each year. It’s fascinating to see what other people come up with.

Finally, just out of all of the places I talked about, I’d like to mention that Australia Day is right around the corner. There will be a lot of booths set up that are advertising podcast downloads and advertising other things. It’s worth checking out if you live in Melbourne.

I was able to talk about the podcast creation process in a little bit more detail than I was supposed to. I did tell you that I had to get the podcast produced on my own. I had to pay for the production costs, and then I spent a few weeks fixing the podcast until I finished it. This was quite painful for me because I was doing it as a side job. However, once I got it done, it was all worth it.

As far as podcast production goes in Melbourne, I think I pretty much covered every aspect. I know that I am a huge book lover, and I read many different books to prepare myself for interviews. I also learned that podcasting takes time and that you have to put some effort into making it as good as possible. So in that sense, I think I covered everything there is to protect.

As far as podcasting goes, you pretty much have two options. In my opinion, purchasing a podcast hosting service is a lot cheaper than actually producing your podcast. It may be something that you want to look into, though.

If you wonder how you can go about podcast production in Melbourne, I think I covered the most significant issues. However, if you have any questions, I suggest that you check out the contact information below. I am in no way affiliated with any podcast production company in Melbourne. However, I do hope that they will find me and send me a podcast to record. I would appreciate any tips and tricks that you can send me.
