Coming Attraction – Uncle Pete’s Corner – Writing a URL Shortener with WebDev

unclepetecorner

I wrote our own URL shortener service for TeamAlogy.com

so now instead of sending this link in an email

http://www.teamalogy.com/Survey.awp?P1=TEST0F2D-DD0E-43ED-96F6-7914F15C1558

we send this link

I started out researching Bitly and goo.gl to see about using one of them, but once I started the research I found out just how simple it is to build your own.

50 Lines of WX code and 3 lines of configuration in my Apache setup file!!!!!

So be sure to tune in to Uncle Pete’s Corner on  wxLive.us Friday

Once the webinar has been posted, there will be a follow up article posted on the blog as well.
