New Stack: BCHS
BSD, C, Httpd (Apache), SQLite
So, a few days ago I was introduced to a new (to me) development stack called BCHS (Beaches).
After checking out some documentation on the stack I found it to be interesting and may be a challenge if I ever get around to creating one. Which I probably won't because there are more efficient options when it comes to devlopment languages, web servers and databases. (ie FEMP)
I do find the parts of the documentation where they mention it's not for hipsters hilarious. Hipsters dislike memory management. Comical. Just as comical as some would argue using a BCHS stack for real work.
In all seriousness I was first introduced to programming from learning the Apple LOGO commands at age 12. Then from there it was BASIC then HTML then Visual Basic 6 then C then C++ then Java then PHP (and various other scripting platforms)
When I look back at it, I really liked C and C++. I even took the time to write a couple simple programs using them. Mostly C though. C is great, but I think php offers a more rapid development model and a shallow learning curve. C would be used for video/image processing perhaps more intensive instructions. Not to mention it is more scalable than just php alone. I might actually consider it if I had more time on my hands to rewrite my FEMP stack into a FHMC stack (Nginx doesn't support CGI). We'll see what I come up with...
