Elizabeth Ramirez's Publications

  • La importancia del shell, vi y regex

    • Hackers & Developers Magazine #1
    • December 3, 2012

    Cuando se tiene una gran familiaridad con sistemas basados en *nix, la tripleta Shell+Vi+Regex proporciona un IDE sin pretensiones. Al principio puede ser un poco confuso para los desarrolladores en lenguajes de alto nivel de abstracción, pero el dominio de estas herramientas no toma mucho tiempo y permite aprovechar al máximo los comandos del sistema operativo.

  • Web Scraping: excavando en la red

    • Hackers & Developers Magazine #3
    • January 28, 2013

    Utilizados en ciencia ficción por Trish Dunne en su araña de búsqueda para encontrar el SYMBOLON, la construcción de web scrapers y spiders se ha convertido en el nuevo FizzBuzz a la hora de presentar una prueba técnica en una entrevista de trabajo, por lo que no está de más conocer las técnicas básicas de su funcionamiento.

  • Explorando Mosh

    • Hackers & Developers Magazine #4
    • February 25, 2013

    La experiencia con ssh sobre redes móviles puede ser dolorosa. Con mosh podemos olvidarnos de ver con cierta frustración el mensaje $ Write failed: Broken pipe cada vez que nuestro laptop va "a dormir", cuando se presenta una intermitencia en la red, o simplemente cambiamos de red.
