Following the announcement of this year's unconference at the Zend/PHP Conference, Michelangelo Van Dam has posted some of his thoughts about being the one running the show this year.Yes, there's going to be unconference (uncon) sessions at ZendCon 2010 ! I was chosen to run these very interesting, educative and as-equally high-valued parallel sessions at the PHP conference in Santa-Clara, CA. [...] I'm looking forward being your host for the ZendCon unconference and I hope I can achieve the same passion...
In a recent post to his site Christian Weiske shares some of the first steps being made toward an installer he's made that could be used for installing PHP applications of just about any type.Half a year after I collected requirements for a generic PHP application installer, Kore already implemented the first bits of it for the Arbit installer, which is supposed to be generic enough for other PHP applications, too. He also held a talk at the PHP Unconference in Hamburg, collecting more requirements for...

As anyone who has followed my past work knows, software architecture is a particular interest of mine. I find the subject fascinating, but my interest is not entirely selfish.
Understanding architecture, and the trade-offs that different architectures imply, is an important part of any software project. Whether you're discussing a Content Management Platform like Drupal, a language like PHP, or a particular web site, having a solid understanding of the "big picture" is crucial not only for building the...

As I blogged recently we started working on CouchDB support on top of the Doctrine2 infrastructure back at FrOSCamp. For me its been a while since I have taken a leading role in the development of an OSS component. Ever since I left PEAR, I have mainly been helping out here and there and with php.net I was doing organizational stuff. So its kinda fun to be back at working on some OSS code with significant contributions in terms of code. There is still a lot of work ahead, so I wouldn't mind a few helping...
One feature telnet has and I always missed from ssh was the ^] shortcut, giving you a way to terminate the connection.ssh has a similar feature. If you setup 'escape characters', you can terminate the connection by typing '~.' Just add the following to your .ssh/config:Host *EscapeChar ~You can change the character here too, but ~ is the default and a sensible one.If you're dealing with crappy ssh connections that often terminate, you can add the following to make the client send a keep-alive package...

Not just another conference - this year has seen some high-valued
conferences (like our IPC Spring Edition in Berlin) and we are already
preparing the next big PHP conference. But this year makes a difference.
It's the 10th. anniversary of the International PHP Conference. Being in
business for ten years, we met some great people, made true fans and
encouraged PHP developers all over the world to commit their passion for
web-development to a growing community, that is behind some of the most...
Jordi Boggiano has a new post today looking at his PHP console script that works in your browser that sets up easily and works from your localhost web server - php-console.Since I spend most of my days programming PHP I tend to need that a lot and a few years back I wrote a small script that would let me type php code in my browser and execute it. Nothing fancy, but quite useful. Over the years a few people got interest seeing me use it and asked for the sources, so instead of repackaging it every time,...
Yes, there's going to be unconference (uncon) sessions at ZendCon 2010 ! I was chosen to run these very interesting, educative and as-equally high-valued parallel sessions at the PHP conference in Santa-Clara, CA.For those who never heard about uncon sessions before, let me explain the situation a bit. Each conference has only so-many slots for talks and the hardest part is to choose the best talks people are willing to pay an entrance ticket for.But that doesn't mean those who've submitted one or more...
On the php|architect blog today Bill Karwin has posted his response to this interesting suggestion from Dennis Hoston about how to "reinvent" object-oriented programming in PHP.Dennis acknowledges that the name needs work. But, getting past that, his blog is about some creative experiments Dennis is working on. He has come up with a pretty innovative way of creating objects dynamically in PHP that allows for some usage that conventional PHP coding techniques don't support.He talks about some of the...

As of 22 September 2010, web2project v2.1 is officially released! You can download it from SourceForge now.
For Project Managers, there are not a huge number of tangible improvements. This was mostly a cleanup release:
The most important part is that now a User can add Tasklogs for people other than themselves. When you create or edit a Task, you can denote "Allow users to add task logs for others" which allows just that. Users can add hours for anyone currently assigned to work on the Task. The system...
