Feeling a little extra festive this year but having a hard time getting in the spirit during those all-nighter code sprints? These themes might be the best vscode extensions to serve as a remedy for those winter blues. Now, we all know how coveted the all-mighty “dark” themes are, especially since they’re easy on the eyes. And that’s not to say these themes are hard to look at by any means. However, as a disclaimer, these themes do include a few brighter colors. That is, of course, not including the Game-of-Thrones-inspired extension we’ll share with you. Without further ado, let’s

Apache and NGINX are the two most popular open source web servers of all time. In fact, the search query Apache vs NGINX results in over 10,000 searches a month. This is likely from developers or just the curious type finding which technologies will best suit their projects.

Recently, you may have noticed a new input field when deploying a SkySilk VPS – reverse DNS (or rDNS for short). If you’re already familiar with forward DNS, the concept of rDNS shouldn’t come off as too complex. Although what might remain a fuzzy topic is the exact use for rDNS. First, it’s important to understand how reverse DNS works and why adding this capability to your server might come in handy.
Machine learning – perhaps one of the more prominent buzzwords of recent times, and typically coupled with data science. In the simplest terms, machine learning is the way that computers “learn” and make predictions based on the data that we feed it (quite cannibalistic when put that way). The algorithms used are expertly designed to make purely data-driven decisions and predictions. Anyone who is the least bit interested in this topic has likely heard the phrase “Correlation doesn’t always mean causation”. What this machine learning algorithm aims to do is bring these two as close together as possible. Let’s take
It’s quite apparent when you come across a site seemingly made of pure HTML, and this is usually met with the “This looks so 90s” comment. The design of the world wide web has no doubt changed from its adoption in the wider public throughout the late 80s and early 90s. One of the catalysts for this change was the introduction of CSS (or Cascading Style Sheets) roughly 2 decades ago and some change. In more recent times, the programming language has seen drastic improvements and capabilities like flexbox to name just one. Talented groups of developers have taken CSS and
