This is the first of what I hope will be a recurring feature. Once a week, I will write a blog post that covers things I’ve learned and links I’ve found. Hopefully it doesn’t suck, and hopefully I can keep up with it.
I’m a big fan of GitHub (and was a fan of Sourceforge back when it was what all the cool kids were using), but there’s one limitation that I’ve run into a few times that can be very frustrating, and that’s the inability to share deploy keys across multiple repos.
If you find yourself using Amazon SES for sending outgoing emails in a PHP web app, getting everything set up is much simpler than it may seem. In my case, this was on an AWS Linux image, but it will work on any Fedora/CentOS AMI.
I love AWS, but the way my company works, we often find ourselves in a position where we have to pass hosting costs through to the client, and Amazon doesn’t give you any basic utility in the console to do just that.
