#Remarketing hack explained. How to use the social banners on your own benefit

I’m sure this happened to you too. After searching for something on the internet, banners showing exactly this product are following you on any other website you visit. And specially on Facebook!

Because you surf the web with Facebook open don’t you ?  Then you must be aware that on 90% of any website there is some kind of facebook plugin. That means facebook knows almost all the sites you visit.

Now why don’t to use this power for our own benefit ?

Follow this simple steps:

  1. Put an article for sale on eBay
  2. Visit amazon and search for the product you are selling
  3. Wait until amazon banners follow you in all social networks
  4. And make a comment in their advertising pointing to your own eBay cheaper sale
  5. Get amazon paid traffic for free in your own benefit

 

Positive Groove playlist 1

At the start of this year I got tired of Spotify advertising and I got a premium account. So I started making public playlists and sharing with the friends at work and posting it sometimes the new editions in Facebook and Twitter.  This generated some good feedback so I though about sharing some of them here too.

The idea is to make list with fresh groovy music. Positive, vibrant, soulful and sexy.

Here are some of my favorites:

pg_bamboos“The Wilhelm scream” fromThe Bamboos opens the playlist. They have proven that they are more than meets the eye; over five acclaimed albums, their evolution in sound and style has consistently confounded and exceeded expectations.

“Nothing prepared me for just how fresh and vibrant the music of The Bamboos is” – Notion Magazine (U.K)

pg_metropolitan_jazzMetropolitan Jazz Affair is France based Jazz band  featuring Mr Day, Rongetz, Benjamin Devigne, Patchworks. They have really awesome tunes, if you like nu-jazz check them out.

wolf_myer Wolf is the head of Myer Orchestra, coming from Linz, he worked as manager for companies like Sony Music Austria and played more than 500 live shows as a session drummer in the last six years.

pg_roberto_fonsecaRoberto Fonseca was born in La Havana. Pianist, composer, arreglista and professor of piano’s inclination to music begun at age four with his interest in percussion instruments.
In this playlist we feature “El soñador esta cansado” an awesome track with a heart-taking piano performance.

Good architecture and why not to render Controllers inside Views

In Symfony, Zend and other frameworks you can rend a controller inside a view like this:

{{ render(controller('AcmeArticleBundle:Article:recentArticles', { 'max': 3 })) }}

 Creating and Using templates documentation here.

Just because there is a possibility to render(ControllerMethod,{ params}) in a template doesn’t mean you have to use it.

Doing so leads almost always to a shitty architecture, the turning point where projects start to be hard to debug, since you are mixing a VIEW (Presentation layer) with a CONTROLLER, that in turn renders another VIEW. You get the point.

What happens afterwars is a little bit counter-productive when debugging:
An error in the ControllerMethod is rendered as a template View error.   Not so nice isn’t it ?

Controller methods should Return a View that has all the required parameters to render the View. But if inside that View, you are going around the loop, rendering another Controller that in turn has another View, can be the start of a infinite loop that swallows the universe and you should get a warning red light in your Frontal Lobe. Overcomplicating things with quick and dirty solutions is the wrong way in Software architecture and the responsible of a big amount of relationship problems.

I vouch for strong architecture in software projects

This cheap solutions, like using this render commodities, lead to the start of the bad. And I suggest to avoid it as much as you can unless there is no other possible way.  And certainly there is!

That is the reason to use MVC. To separate Code from Presentation layer, start mixing both, and your architecture will leak.
