Setting up GitBucket on Raspberry Pi 3 with an Ubuntu Server 15.10.3 image

With multiple Raspberry Pis around the house, it was time for me to setup a Git server to synchronise the source codes residing on my development laptop with those that are deployed on my Raspberry Pi servers.

As I am using GitHub at my workplace, I seek to emulate similar development operations at home. GitBucket seems to be an ideal candidate for my home Git server since it comes as a war file having API compatibility with GitHub.

Since I had created a LEMP server on my Raspberry Pi 3 with on Ubuntu Server 15.10.3, it makes sense for me to setup my GitBucket server on it.

This post describes how I setup GitBucket on my Raspberry Pi 3 with an Ubuntu Server 15.10.3 image. To make this post complete, the first seven steps are taken from previous posts.

What are the benefits that the Java Programmer and Java Developer certifications bring to me

It had been over 10 years since I got my both my Sun certified Java Programmer and Sun certified Java Developer certifications.

Along my career path, I had met studious individuals who had asked me whether they should pursue the Java Programmer and Developer certifications.

A good way for me to answer their questions will be to reflect on how the Java Programmer and Java Developer certifications had contributed towards my career in software development.

Hence, I write this post to discuss the benefits that my Java Programmer and Java Developer certifications had brought to me.

Books that helped me understood Java and became proficient in it

The Java programming language had opened up a lot of opportunities for me ever since I was acquainted with it. Most people say that learning Java is easy, however mastering it is hard. For me, mastering Java could have been harder if not for some of the books that I had read. In this post, I list some of the books that had taught me a great deal of Java, so much so that I am able to be proficient with it.

How to upload a file via a HTTP multipart request in Java without using any external libraries

There was this situation when there was a need for my applet to send some log files (generated by some desktop application) on the remote clients.

To keep my applet lean, I chose to implement this file upload function by sending a HTTP multipart request when my applet loads on the remote client’s browser. Policies were in place to ensure that my applet was able to read the log files and send them back to a web server which will collect the log files.

This post documents how I can upload a file by sending a HTTP multipart request in Java without using any external libraries. For the sake of brevity, I used the server endpoint that I had discussed earlier to accept the file from the codes that will be mentioned in this post.

Books that prepared me well for my Java Programmer and Java Developer certifications

Back in the days when I was still a student, I found some motivation to pursue the Java Programmer and Java Developer certifications. As a student, I did not have the extra cash to pay for the Java preparation courses provided by education institutions which were marketed to increase the chances of students passing the the exams required to earn the Java Programmer and Java Developer certifications. As such, I chose to go the cheaper route of reading books that I could find in the market back then.

This post lists the books that I had used to prepare myself for the Java Programmer and Java Developer certifications from Sun Microsystems.
