Using DocBlox

Until a few years ago, there were basically two tools you could use to generate API documentation in PHP: phpDocumentor and Doxygen. phpDocumentor was long considered the standard, with Doxygen getting notice when more advanced features such as inheritance diagrams are required. However, phpDocumentor is practically unsupported at this time (though a small group of developers is working on a new version), and Doxygen has never had PHP as its primary concern. As such, a number of new projects are starting...

Freek Lijten's Blog: Expressing algorithm complexity: the big O notation explained

Freek Lijten's Blog: Expressing algorithm complexity: the big O notation explained
Freek Lijten has put together a new post to his blog looking at a method for showing how complex an algorithm is without having to get too deep into how it works - the big O notation (with examples written in PHP).I'd like to share a topic today which was re-introduced to me by a lightningtalk of a colleague of mine. His talk was on the "big O notation". The big O notation is a tool you can use to express the order of complexity of an algorithm. It is useful because it lets you express the order of...

Martin Psinas' Blog: Switching to PDO

Martin Psinas' Blog: Switching to PDO
In a new post to his blog Martin Psinas talks about some of his pains experienced with upgrading his code to use PDO instead of the mysql extension for database interaction.I read not too long ago that the mysql library in PHP is being deprecated as of v6.0 in favor of mysqli or PDO, so of course I had to update all of my database code keep on top of things. I spent about 5 or 6 hours over the course of 2 days familiarizing myself with the new syntax and updating my code offline. Without any testing, I...

Anthony Ferrara's Blog: Security Review: Creating a Secure PHP Login Script

Anthony Ferrara's Blog: Security Review: Creating a Secure PHP Login Script
In response to this article from DevShed about creating a "simple and secure login script", Anthony Ferrara has written up this post to help dispel some of the inaccuracies, bad practices and security issues that could result from DevShed's code.I decided to click the link [in my feed reader] and give the article a read. Not overly shocking was the fact that I didn't find the content of the article to be, how shall I say this..., overly factual. It's not really a "tutorial", but more of a "here's some...

Hopefully this poll would also shape our focus in tutorials in the future - I personally plan to dedicate more time to the winning...
