ache Friends, un proyecto sin fines de lucro que busca promover el uso del servidor web de apache encontramos a XAMPP.

Este proyecto penso inicialmente en el sistema operativo Linux. Hoy en día cuenta con distribuciones para diferentes sistemas operativos.

Además de estos proyectos también podemos mencionar al Ibserver (aunque lleva bastante tiempo sin actualizaciones) y al Uniform Server.  Si conoces alguna otra aplicación que valga la pena revisar, no dudes en dejarnos unas líneas en los comentarios.

Luego de instalar cualquiera de estos paquetes, hay que ir configurando su editor de desarrollo hacia http://localhost para asegurarse que sus aplicaciones funcionen sin problemas antes de llevarlas a su servidor de producción.

Tech Trend: Shanzhai « bunnie’s blog

Tech Trend: Shanzhai

The shanzhai of China are a tech trend to keep an eye on. Typically dismissed by popular press as simply the “copycat barons from China”, I think they may have something in common with Hewlett and Packard or Jobs and Wozniak back when they were working out of garages. I’ve heard quite a few stories about the shanzhai while on my most recent trip to China, some of which I will share here.

First, let’s try to understand the cultural context of the word shanzhai. Shanzhai (山寨) comes from the Chinese words “mountain fortress”. The literal translation is a bit misleading. The English term “fortress” connotes a fortified structure or stronghold that is large, perhaps conjuring imagery of castle turrets and moats. On the other hand, the denotation simply states that it is simply a fortified place. This latter denotation is closer to the original meaning from Chinese; in fact, the fortress they are referring to is closer to a cave or guerrilla-style hideout. In its contemporary context, shanzhai is a historical allusion to the legends that dwelled within. One such legend is the 12th-century story of the 108 bandits of Song Jiang. It is still a popular tale today; my father recognized it instantly when I asked him about it. A friend of mine described Song Jiang as a sort of Robin Hood meets Che Guevara; Song Jiang was a rebel and a soldier of fortune, yet selfless and kind to those in need.

Shanzhai – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Shanzhai simplified Chinese: 山寨; pinyin: shānzhài refers to Chinese knockoff and pirated brands and goods, particularly electronics. Literally “mountain village” or “mountain stronghold,” the term refers to the mountain stockades of warlords or thieves, far away from official control. “Shanzhai” can also be stretched to refer to people who are lookalikes, low-quality or improved goods, as well as things done in parody.
