If you're a PHP developer and are working on distributed applications (or might be in the future), you should probably read through this new article on PHPMaster.com with 8 common fallacies about these applications and their needs.

These fallacies directly relate to us as PHP developers since we build distributed applications each and every day. We build mashups, applications that interact with SOAP and REST services, authenticate users via Facebook, Google, or Twitter APIs, retrieve information from remote databases and caching services, etc. Make no mistake, we're building distributed computer applications. Given that we are building distributed applications, it's important that we understand the eight fallacies and how they affect us.

Among the list of their fallacies are things like:

  • The Network is Reliable
  • Bandwidth is Infinite
  • The Network is Secure
  • There is One Administrator

Check out the full article for the rest of them and summaries of each.
