AppBackr Blog: Automated PHP unit testing for lazy coders

AppBackr Blog: Automated PHP unit testing for lazy coders
In a recent post from the AppBackr blog they share a solution they've found for running unit tests automatically for lazy coders using a combination of PHPUnit, Watchr and Growl notifications (OS X-only, obviously).Now you could run [your] tests manually after each change by typing 'phpunit ', but we were looking for something a little more comfortable. We want to decrease the transactional cost of running the tests as much as possible to make the lives of our engineers more pleasant. Making testing easy...

CouchDB and Domain-Driven Design

CouchDB and Domain-Driven Design
I've found CouchDB to be a great fit for domain-driven design (DDD). Specifically, CouchDB fits very well with the building block patterns and practices found within DDD. Two of these building blocks include Entities and Value Objects. Entities are objects defined by a thread of continuity and identity. A Value Object aois an object that describes some characteristic or attribute but carries no concept of identity.a Value objects should be treated as immutable. Aggregates are groupings of associated...

Sander Marechal's Blog: A YuiCompressorFilter for Phing

Sander Marechal's Blog: A YuiCompressorFilter for Phing
Sander Marechal has been working with Phing in some of his recent development and has created something useful for compressing Javascript and CSS files on the deployment of your application - a YuiCompressor task.I am going to write several useful extensions, the first of which is a YuiCompressorFilter. Phing already has support for a JavaScrip minifier in the form of the JsMinTask, but the yui-compressor is more useful. Not only does it usually compress better than JsMin, it can also compress CSS files....

Joind.in + Combell FTW

Joind.in + Combell FTW
A while back we (the team leads of the Joind.in project) made the decision to move off of the hosting we were on and up to bigger and better things. Slicehost was a good place to start, but our needs were moving beyond what the little VPS was providing. Through a fortunate series of events, Thijs Feryn set up some space for the project to live on in the Combell servers. This allowed us to more easily set up things like a Hudson instance for deployment and a full test site. Here's the info from the blog...

Symfony2 Released

Symfony2 Released
Last week, Symfony2as first stable release, 2.0.0, has been released. We are big fans of this modern PHP framework, and have been working with it and contributing to it since it was introduced at the Symfony Live 2010 conference a year ago. It's great to finally see it come to life officially, and I can't wait to see the feedback of the broader user base. Now that it is finally stable, I would like to take the chance to announce that Nelmio offers in-house Symfony2 training for businesses. This way you...

Tracking Menaces for Your Privacy

Tracking Menaces for Your Privacy
A lot of people are talking about a particular research paper featured by Wired of late. That paper describes, how users can be, and are, tracked against their express wish. Even deleting cookies does not solve the tracking problem. A lot of folks talk about how unethical, probably unlawful and unfair it is. So far, although, i have not seen a site that gives more than hints how to prevent being tracked. Firefox users have a couple of tools at hand that can easily circumvent most, if not all, attack...

Gonzalo Ayuso's Blog: Building a client for a REST API with PHP

Gonzalo Ayuso's Blog: Building a client for a REST API with PHP
Gonzalo Ayuso has a new post to his blog showing how to make a PHP-based client for a REST API with the help of his handy tool.Today we're going to create a library to use a simple RESTfull API for a great project called Gzaas. [...] Ok. The API is a simple RESTfull API, so we can use it with a simple curl interface. A few lines of PHP and it will run smoothly. But Gzaas is cool so we're going to create a cool interface too. This days I'm involved into TDD world, so we're going to create the API wrapper...

McGlockenshire.com: Waiting for PHP 5.4: Death to prehistoric cruft
On McGlockenshire.com there's a recent post looking at some of the features of the upcoming PHP 5.4 release and how they'll be glad to get rid of the "prehistoric cruft" that's accumulated around the language over the years.It's incredibly rare for the Internals crew to ever consider breaking backwards compatibility, but some of the most important changes in PHP 5.4 do just that by removing old "features." None of these changes should impact modern PHP code. If somehow you get bitten by any of these...

Iwan Luijks' Blog: Getting certified, some pro's and misconceptions
Iwan Luijks has a recent post to his blog trying to dispel some of the myths and misconceptions about becoming a certified ZCE through Zend's testing. He also includes some of the benefits of having the certification to go with your name.In the community of PHP developers there are more non-certified professionals than certified professionals. PHP developers mostly don't really see the pro's of getting certified. These developers mostly honor the fact that PHP is a quick and easy language to learn and to...
