PHP Program To Find Odd Even Number

Find Odd Even Number || PHPMYPASSION

"Find odd even number " is the basic PHP program for a PHP learner. As you all aware, Odd numbers are not divisible by 2 and Even numbers are divisible by 2. 

Example :
    Odd number: 3, 5, 7, 9,11
    Even number: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 

So here I am gonna explain it with a simple PHP program.

Odd Even Number Program :-



 echo "22 is an even number"; 
 echo "22 is not odd number";


Output :-

22 is an even number

You can also do this by defining a PHP function to check a number is odd or even as below -

PHP function to check odd even number :-

What is Docker and Why We Use ?

Docker Introduction || PhpMyPassion

What is docker ?
Docker is a container management service. The keywords of Docker are develop, ship and run anywhere. The whole idea of Docker is for developers to easily develop applications, ship them into containers which can then be deployed at anyplace.
Docker has two flavors : The Community Edition (CE) and the Enterprise Edition (EE)
Initial Release : March 2013
Mostly use on agile based project.
Why docker ?
  • Docker has the ability to reduce the size of development by providing a smaller footprint of the operating system via containers.
  • With containers, it becomes easier for teams across different units, such as development, QA and Operations to work seamlessly across applications.
  • You can deploy Docker containers anywhere, on any physical and virtual machines and even on the cloud.
  • Since Docker containers are pretty lightweight, they are very easily scalable.
For more details : why docker
Docker Terms :
Docker Engine : "Docker engine" is the part of Docker which creates and runs Docker containers.
Docker Hub : SaaS service for sharing and managing application stacks.
( Docker Hub is a registry service on the cloud that allows you to download Docker images that are built by other communities. You can also upload your own Docker built images to Docker hub )
Docker Compose : Docker Compose is a tool for defining and running multi-container Docker applications. It uses Yaml files to configure the application's services and performs the creation and start-up process of all the containers with a single command.
Using Compose, it is basically a three-step process.
  1. Define your app's environment with a Dockerfile so it can be reproduced at anyplace.
  2. Define the services that make up your app in docker-compose.yml so they can be run together in an isolated environment.
  3. In the end, run docker-compose up and Compose will start and run your entire app.
For more information read: Docker compose
Docker Image: There everything is based on Images.
Docker file: The Dockerfile is essentially the build instructions to build the image.
For more details : Docker file
Docker-compose.yml : Config. Application’s services.

How To Set Custom Variables With DataLayer in GoogleTag manager (GTM) ?

Google Tag Manager DataLayer || PhpMyPassion

The most common problem for GTM is to setting up custom variables with dataLayer and make that dynamic for your JavaScrip tag.

So here I am gonna explain it with an article. follow whole process for setting up custom variables for your custom JavaScript tag.

I have already explained about GTM or its overview in my one of article. You can read that overview of google tag manager here

Setting Up Custom Variable With DataLayer :

To setting up custom variables with dataLayer, developers has to pass the variables from their code.

for an example :

just suppose your JS-SDK required data like eventName & jsonPayload and other parameters as below. 

var _pmp = _pmp || [];
var cb = Math.random()*10000000000000000;
_pmp.push(['dataTrack', 0, 'event-NAME', {jsonPayload}]); //parameters to e pass

You can set the datalayer to pass these variables from your code as below-

if your conversion event is of SignUp, then you have to setup dataLayer from your server side script as below-

Conversion Event : dataTrack_cnv

<script>dataLayer.push("event":"dataTrack_cnv", "eventName":"Buying", "jsonPayload":"{"md_prid":"p1234", "md_prname":"myProduct", "cur":"usd"}")</script>

You can also set this dataLayer on Ajax Response & on button click.
make sure you have initialise dataLayer object before the GTM-Tag as below - 
<!-- Google Tag Manager -->
var dataLayer = [];
new Date().getTime(),event:'gtm.js'});var f=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],
<!-- End Google Tag Manager -->

Now its time to create dataLayer variable by that we can pass it to our JS-SDK-TAG. 

Process to use dataLayer variables in your custom JS-SDK gtm tag :-

To use these variables you have to create variables in GTM as below -

Setting up DataLayer variable in gtm || PhpMyPassion

  • First give a name to your variable like - eventName, jsonPayload etc.
  • Now choose variable type to "Data Layer Variable" because we are already set dataLayer variables from code.
It will looks like below screen after choosing Data Layer variable -

Here eventName below DataLyer variable is the already above set DataLayer variabel name.
  • Now click to save and use your variable into your created JS-SDK tag in gtm -

var _pmp = _pmp || [];
var cb = Math.random()*10000000000000000;
_pmp.push(['dataTrack', 0, {{eventName}}, {jsonPayload}]); //parameters to e pass

  • Now set trigger to all pages

      • Publish your container tag and start to track your event.
      So using the whole process developers can set dataLayer variable in their website code and pass to GTM JS-SDK-TAG accordingly. Google Tag Manager makes it more easy to track event with a little bit changes in your website.

      If anybody found the issue in setting up dataLayer variables from their website or in passing to GTM, can comment here. I will always here for helping you.
