Leaseweb Labs Blog: POC: Flexible PHP Output Caching
On the Leaseweb Labs blog there's a recent post looking at using the POC framework to work with flexible output caching.

I agree with it and...

PHPMaster.com: Where on Earth are You?
In PHPMaster.com's latest tutorial Lukas White introduces you to using the Yahoo "Placemaker" web service to geographically locate a place from a free-form text string. The results include "place details" like the type of the location, latitude, longitude and how confident they are in their match.The challenge then is to do two things: work out what place you could be talking about, disambiguate if necessary, and then identify exactly where on Earth that is.

Hey Delta, is it this hard to find an iPad?
So this post is a bit of a rant more than anything, so for the three regular readers of this blog feel free to skip over this post. I promise to make thisAforayAa brief one. I made a blunder on my flight home from Atlanta to Akron/Canton Airport a few weeks ago; I left my lovely, SugarCRM logo and my name engraved iPad safely in it's case in the seat pocket of seat 3A. D'oh! I realized this the moment I got home, and being a bit of a snow storm decided it not prudent to risk life and limb to return to...

Mike Purcell's Blog: PHPUnit - How to Run PHPUnit Against a Specific Test

Mike Purcell's Blog: PHPUnit - How to Run PHPUnit Against a Specific Test
Mike Purcell has a quick new post to his blog showing how you can run PHPUnit on one specific test using handy grouping functionality already built into the tool.The other day I was debugging an error in one of my unit tests, and found it hard to track down because when I ran PHPUnit, it ran all the tests contained in the file where my problem unit test was located. After some Googling and reading the PHPUnit Api Docs, I found that you can specify a test, among other tests, by adding a comment with the...

Building a RESTful PHP Server: Output Handlers

So far we've covered parsing requests to determine exactly what the user is asking for, and also looked at routing to a controller to obtain the data or perform the action required. This post gives...
