On February 22nd was again the Magento Stammtisch Meetup in Berlin. It was the 46th edition and as always we had two excellent tasks. The meetup was hosted by brandung.
From time to time I like to spread the word for nice software that I use. As I wanted to write my own API client based on Electron, I have found Insomnia. And it has mostly every feature that I expect from an API client. Give this application a try if you build APIs every day and if you want to get rid of API client web browser plugins.
Kali Linux is a cool Linux distribution with a lot of security tools preinstalled. To run those security tools agains a local webserver for example it would be nice and handsome as VirtualBox. Offensive VirtualBox images are also available at offensive-security.com, but creating your own custom image is also pretty easy.
I would like to digitize some old VHS tapes before the time is reducing the quality more and more. My current operating system is Debian 9.3, but the following instructions should work mostly on every Linux distribution. Some of the stuff has been taken from the german Wiki of ubuntuusers.de about Videograbbing.
LaTeX is the software that I prefer for creating presentation slides or small documents with technical and mathematical background. From time to time it is necessary to show code with highlighting in LaTeX documents. Sometimes also for less popular programming languages or file formats.
The 45th version of the Berlin Magento Stammtisch or Meetup was on the 28th November 2017. Here a small summary of the event.
I recorded some old VHS tapes to digitize them to video movies and burn them on DVDs. Sadly the audio had a shift or drift of around one and a half second over the one hour video. Here a small solution to fix this problem with the help of Kdenlive and FFmpeg.
