Last week I was contacted by some really old client. You know, the kind of client that you think that they don't even have the app you made for them online anymore.
Turns out, they do have such app online, and they wanted me to change some minor things in it. But obviously I couldn't do it directly in production. I needed to create a local environment that would mimic the one the client had.
I just did a fresh install of vagrant and built it using the online tool from PuPHPet. Had everything ready but I wasn't able to connect to my mysql server.
Elislab wanted to focus their development into the product that actually made them money. Nothing wrong about that. They started to look for a someone to take care of Codeigniter. The community started to panic. Months have passed and finally codeigniter has a new home.
The British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) in Vancouver, Canada is a highly regarded applied technology institute with 48,000 full and part-time students. Their impressive BCIT School of Computing and Academic Studies teaches CodeIgniter to 150 students a year. Now, they are its stewards.
