RubySource.com: Confessions of a Converted PHP Developer: Namespace Superhero!
RubySource.com has posted another in their "confessions of a converted PHP developer" series (more here) with a new article comparing namespacing between the two languages.The moment you start writing code that grows beyond a few classes, you start to realise that you need a way to group files and logic. While this is easy to do, it can become quite difficult to ensure that you have class names that are unique and don't end up accidentally clashing with other classes in your own code, or classes in other...

I was tasked with building a bridge of sorts that would utilize existing information from Zend Framework with the latest release of Socket.io's authorization mechanisms. (If...

Midgard in the Symfony2 world

Midgard in the Symfony2 world
So, Symfony2 was released today. Now, you may remember me complaining about the fragmentation in the PHP community, as well as suggesting various technologies that have the power to bring the community together.

Frameworks are generally problematic concerning cross-project collaboration, as most of the code written against a particular framework tends to run only on that framework. If things are properly decoupled, and most of...

Ibuildings techPortal: Behavior Driven Development in PHP With Behat
On the Ibuildings techPortal today there's a new post from Marcello Duarte looking at a different sort of software development methodology - behavior driven development - and using Behat in a sample project.Because of the emphasis on test, developers tend to focus on class structure as opposed to how the system should behave.
