James Morris' Blog: How to Strip EXIF Data Using Imagick

James Morris' Blog: How to Strip EXIF Data Using Imagick
James Morris has a quick tutorial today showing how to pull the exif data from a photo and make it into something useful you can either display on on the site or store for categorization.Today I spent a good amount of time trying to figure out how to strip exif data from an image using Imagick. The first port of call was the (pathetic) documentation at php.net. I searched for 'exif' but found nothing. [...] I was tipped off by a colleague to the method Imagick::stripImage() which apparently did what I...

Srdjan Vranac has a new post to his blog showing you how to create a custom repository with the dependency injection features that already come with the Symfony2 framework.I am currently working on some Symfony2 bundles, I needed a custom repository to house hold my custom queries, that part is easy with sf2, and quite nicely explained in the Manual.He walks you through the setup of a simple custom repository (a part of a Code4Hire bundle) and a (less elegant) call that can be used to reference it and...

IT World: Lost programming skills

IT World: Lost programming skills
On IT World there's an interesting article about the programming skills that seem to be lost in today's coders and how what they may not know might hurt them in the end.Some of these skills aren't likely to be needed again, any more than most of us need to know how to ride a horse or (sigh) drive a manual-transmission vehicle. But other skills and "lessons learned" may still or again prove relevant, whether developers are banging their heads against legacy systems, coding for new mobile and embedded...

Lee Blue's Blog: What's The Best PHP Framework?

Lee Blue's Blog: What's The Best PHP Framework?
Despite the somewhat inflammatory title, Lee Blue's latest post wondering about the best PHP framework has some interesting insight into a few of them that he's tried out - CodeIgniter, Zend Framework, Kohana, Yii and his pick for his needs, the Fat-Free Framework.There is an enormous number of PHP frameworks available so I thought I share my experiences working with some of the most popular frameworks for PHP development. I have personally used all of the frameworks I describe either for my own projects...

Ryan Gantt's Blog: Horizontal reusability with traits in PHP 5.4

Ryan Gantt's Blog: Horizontal reusability with traits in PHP 5.4
Ryan Gantt has a new tutorial posted to his blog today looking at one of the features in the upcoming PHP 5.4.x releases - traits. Specifically he looks at the horizontal reusabillity they allow for in your applications.The ability for a class to inherit from multiple parents is maligned by many, but can be a good thing in some situations. For those working in PHP, multiple inheritance has never been an option; classes are limited to one parent, though they can implement many other datatypes through the...

Jackalope progress

Jackalope progress
At Liip, employees can propose open source projects they want Liip to support. Together with Daniel Barsotti, I did this for the PHP Content Repository implementation Jackalope and Liip was so nice as to grant us a couple of man-weeks to implement stuff for Jackalope. Now that we used up the allocated budget, its time for a progress report what Jackalope can now do. I don't want to claim all the progress as being me and Dan. Some of the improvements also come out of projects, or of discussions. See the...
