Buzzing in Berlin

Buzzing in Berlin
ASo I spend the last two weeks in Berlin, with a short trip in between to Italy for some frisbee. Berlin was awesome, Italy too, except for the muscle I pulled at the end of the second game, but I digress. The reason why I got to hang out in my home town was the International PHP Conference Spring Edition, where I have a talk on the Symfony CMF, and Berlin Buzzwords where I got to hear all about whats happening in the NoSQL, Search and Big Data world. IPC was in a new location from last time I...

Richard Miller's Blog: Symfony2: Moving Away From the Base Controller

Richard Miller's Blog: Symfony2: Moving Away From the Base Controller
Richard Miller has a new post to his blog today that recommends moving away from the base controller the Symfony introductory documentation has you make. He suggests an alternative that can be used more widely.In fact, it is the advised best practice for controllers in shared bundles. When you do, you will no longer have access to these useful methods, in this post I am going to look at how to accomplish the same tasks without them. I have created a simple controller for some basic form interaction with...

Andrew Johnstone's Blog: Memcached multigets - ubuntu vs debian

Andrew Johnstone's Blog: Memcached multigets - ubuntu vs debian
Andrew Johnstone came across an interesting problem when he tried to use memcached multigets with a large number of keys - it was throwing failures, but only when he tried it on Ubuntu.I Spent a little while yesterday investigating why memcached causes problems with multigets returning results and ended up comparing debian vs ubuntu. [...] A larger number of keys than 200 causes memcached to fail to return valid responses, additionally the key length greatly varies the number items you can pull back...

Volker Dusch's Blog: References suck! - Let's fix MySqli prepared statements!

Volker Dusch's Blog: References suck! - Let's fix MySqli prepared statements!
Volker Dusch has a new post to his blog looking at the use of references in PHP (or lack there of) and what we, as end users of the language, can do about it. His example looks at mysqli prepared statements.Even so not every PHP Developers knows WHY we don't use references pretty much every core function and every somewhat modern framework avoids them so people adapted this best practice. The leftovers in the PHP core, like sort() or str_replace(), are exceptions to the rule. So if the common consensus...

Ibuildings techPortal: DPC11: Retrospective
On the Ibuildings techPortal site there's a retrospective of the Dutch PHP Conference from this year, 2011.Before our memories get swamped by our daily lives, let's take a look back at the Dutch PHP Conference 2011. For me, two things stand out when I look back on this years DPC. One was the rate at which ideas were exchanged, both during the regular conference days and at the associated social events. [...] The other thing to stand out was the fact that many talks were not about PHP.He goes on to talk...

It's the (possibly final) video in the series he's been doing with the HTMLPurifier filtering.We've taken a library that's outside the framework and want to find an elegant solution that takes advantage of the configuration tools that are already available in the Zend Framework.He takes the previously hard-coded settings for the HTMLPurifier and moves them into...

DPC11: Retrospective
Before our memories get swamped by our daily lives, let's take a look back at the Dutch PHP Conference 2011. For me, two things stand out when I look back on this years DPC. One was the rate at which ideas were exchanged, both during the regular conference days and at the associated social events. Triggered by the talks they attended, people from many different nationalities were discussing a broad range of subjects, ranging from front-end technologies like html5, via the pitfalls of API design, to...

Spatial Indexes: Solr
Spatial Indexes: Solr London, UK Tuesday, June 14th 2011, 09:04 BST In two previous articles I introduced the spherical Earth model, using SQLite as a geographical data storage and using MySQL as a geographical data storage. In this article we're going to have a look at importing the data into something else than a relational database: the search platform Solr. (Yes, I know I've skipped PostgreSQL, but I'll come back to that). Solr Solr is "the popular, blazing fast open source enterprise search...

Keith Casey has a new post to his blog today sharing some thoughts similar to those he gave in the closing remarks at this year's php|tek conference that recently happened in Chicago.A few weeks ago at php|tek, I was lucky enough to deliver the Closing Remarks. Well.. it was less "lucky" and more of a "wait.. you haven't done anything this week, make yourself useful." So after a week of sessions, midnight hackathons, midnight unconference, tornados, power outages, a red carpet entrance, a family reunion,...

Greg Wilson's Blog: If You''e Going to Teach an Undergrad Intro to Software Engineering...
Greg Wilson has an interesting new post with some of the recommendations he made to a friend about recommended reading for a software engineering teacher so they could be one step ahead of their students.I got mail yesterday from a former student of a friend of mine who has just been told that he has to teach an "Intro to Software Engineering" class this fall to a bunch of third-year undergraduates. He's not an SE guy-his background is operating systems-so he asked me what he should read to get one step...
