Announcing Training Dates for November

Announcing Training Dates for November
I'm teaching some new public courses next month (in Leeds), so I thought I'd mention them on the blog in case anyone is interested. I'm super-excited because this is the first time I've delivered my own training content as a public course, so even if you aren't in the position where you work with lots of people who need the same training, you can pop along! OOP and Design Patterns A one-day course aimed at those with PHP OOP experience and looking to do more with it. We'll recap on some of the advanced...

PHPNW11 Conference - The Other Photos

PHPNW11 Conference - The Other Photos
The PHP North West User Group ran it's 4th (and largest yet!) PHP conference - PHPNW11 in Manchester last weekend. My last set of photos from PHP North West 2011 are the odd ones out, the ones that didn't really fit into any of the other sets. I hope you've enjoyed my photos from the conference, and maybe - just maybe - they've made you think about going to a PHP conference somewhere near you in the near future.

Uh, uha faking or caching MySQL PHP results

Uh, uha faking or caching MySQL PHP results
Unfortunately MySQL Proxy was no good source of inspiration today. MySQL Proxy can do many wonderful things which you can do with C based mysqlnd plugins as well. But not with PECL/mysqlnd_uh. PECL/mysqlnd_uh lets you write aopluginsa in PHP. Given my desire to demo the power of mysqlnd plugins ...

Developer Drive Blog: How to Prevent a SQL Injection Attack

Developer Drive Blog: How to Prevent a SQL Injection Attack
From the Developer Drive blog there's a recent post with some suggestions on how you can help to prevent SQL injections in your PHP application and make it that much harder for would-be attackers to do what they shouldn't. Why do SQL injections happen so often? The shortest answer is that SQL injections are so popular because of poor programming. Hackers know about the potential of a successful SQL injection attack and they search for vulnerabilities. Unfortunately, very often they don't have to search...

A URL shortener in a couple of hours

A URL shortener in a couple of hours
I have been aware of Silex for a while as a nice microframework based on Symfony2, and have looked into it a couple of times to see if it would be useful for a project. So far though, the projects I was working on seemed to need more than just Silex, so I picked Symfony2 instead. This morning, I decided to dig into Silex a bit more with a real-world project I still wanted to develop myself: A URL shortener.

PHPNW11 Conference - The Organisers And Volunteers

PHPNW11 Conference - The Organisers And Volunteers
The PHP North West User Group ran it's 4th (and largest yet!) PHP conference - PHPNW11 in Manchester last weekend. No conference - especially one as well-run as PHP North West - can happen without the small army of folks who give up their time to organise and staff the conference. I'm afraid that I didn't manage to photograph everyone involved on the day (sorry!) but here's to everyone who made PHP North West 2011 possible.


Ian Barber's Blog: Linear Regression in PHP

Ian Barber's Blog: Linear Regression in PHP
Ian Barber has a new post about an interesting method for determining the "line" that results follow in your statistics - linear regression in PHP (complete with code samples).There are a lot of problems that fall under predicting these types of continuous values based on limited inputs - for example: given the air pressure, how much rain will there be, given the qualifying times, how quick will the fastest lap be in the race. By taking a bunch of existing data and fitting a line, we will be able to make...

PHPNW11 Conference - The Sponsors

PHPNW11 Conference - The Sponsors
The PHP North West User Group ran it's 4th (and largest yet!) PHP conference - PHPNW11 in Manchester last weekend. This year, many of the sponsors were here not to drum up new business, but to hire new talent, continuing a trend from PHPUK11 earlier in the year. Sponsoring a conference is cheaper than paying traditional recruiters, with no shortage of motivated attendees to talk to. Community tech conferences like PHP North West simply could not happen without the funds raised from the organisations who...

Uh, uha PHP MySQL client fail over
It is the third day I try to find mysqlnd plugin use cases for the Succeed with Plugins webinar on October, 26th. Not being innovative or creative today, I looked into a classic: client fail over. As a trained and talented reader, you won't be shocked to see 54 lines of PECL/mysqlnd_uh hacking today. class __mysqlnd_conn_failover extends MysqlndUhConnection { private $fail_over_errno = array(2002 = "Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '%s' (%d)", 2003 = "Can't connect to MySQL...

PHPNW11 Conference - The Saturday Audience
The PHP North West User Group ran it's 4th (and largest yet!) PHP conference - PHPNW11 in Manchester last weekend. The audience is a key part of any conference, and each year the PHP North West conference manages to attract more and more people back as it establishes its reputation for being one of the very best PHP conferences (and indeed, one of the very best UK tech conferences) around. If you've never been to any PHP conference anywhere before, I hope these photos manage to show you just a little bit...
