kambotiIt was started by a hobby to learn and construct simple HTML page which then become one of my hobby in computing. Later, my learning moves forward from time to time, and currently, I’m interested in combining HTML with PHP scripts. In addition, I’ve learned how to build a home brew server which then gives me the idea about integrating HTML (Apache2), PHP5 and MySQL5 to produce an interactive web which I called My Virtual World. In the recent days, I’ve gained a good portion of knowledge on how to build a database, which for example can hold information about books, and also provides tools for user to do some sort of simple search within the book database. My learning process is still in progress, and from time to time, whenever it is possible, I’ll publish results of my learning progress in this web.

Next, a brief explanation why this site is bear a name of Kamboti Beta. The name consist of two words, Kamboti and Beta. Both of them are from vocabulary of Bahasa Ambon Dictionary. Kamboti means a kind of basket roughly woven from green coconut leaves used by men to carry fruit and tubers home from the fields. Beta means I or me. Hence a complete meaning is basket of mine (to put my ideas in writing).

Welcome to Kamboti Beta: a basket full of ideas, My Virtual World.

Cheers,
