It's an event bringing together developers from 10+ projects all around the PHP community to work on PHP itself.If you follow Microsoft and PHP then you aren't surprised that Microsoft is yet again getting PHP developers together to talk. However, if you don't pay attention, you may be surprised at how interested Microsoft is in PHP and the projects...

Padraic Brady's Blog: How Would You Engineer A PEAR2/Pyrus Distribution Architecture?

Padraic Brady's Blog: How Would You Engineer A PEAR2/Pyrus Distribution Architecture?
Padraic Brady has a new post to his blog asking you, the reader, for your suggestions on how to architect a distribution system for the PEAR2/Pyrus components.With the idea of PEAR2 and Pyrus, I had hoped to see a renewal - the advancement of a PEAR architecture for the 21st Century. Instead, and this is just my opinion, PEAR2/Pyrus were a relatively simple iteration on a very old theme. [...] If the PEAR ecosystem has a failing, it is one of staggered evolution. Over time it has picked up additional...

In practice, widgets are generally only used on the Home screen. Widgets can also be interacted with, reacting to touch events, although there are some limits on what can be doneSee the original article here: BuildMobile:...

Create Insanely Great Experiences
My first paid freelance job fresh out of design school was creating a brochure for a magician. Having moved beyond performing for children's parties, he began doing aomagic with a messagea-shows designed to teach kids how to avoid drugs and strangers. The ideal venue for his show was high schools, and his target market was high school principals. The brochure was to be part of his marketing collateral.Besides being an excellent magician, he is also a savvy marketer. Instead of images of himself...

RubySource: Dan Cheail, Unplugged.

RubySource: Dan Cheail, Unplugged.
Given that Dan once ran RubySource and I'd already put a face to the name at one RORO meeting a couple of weeks earlier, it was stellar to actually get to know him better over the weekend. Additionally, I felt the title of Unplugged was justified, as he was playing acoustic guitar through the weekend. He's as friendly as he is tall, which is taller than average, so he was happy to answer some questions for us! Tell us a some things about yourself, Dan. I started programming using BASIC when I was six, I...

How to Write Your Own Easy-Administration WordPress Plugin

How to Write Your Own Easy-Administration WordPress Plugin
WordPress's popularity owes much to it's easy administration panels. Unfortunately, it can still be daunting for non-technical users such as your clients. At best they'll require a little training, hand-holding and support. At worst, they'll play around with plugin installation, edit some theme code, then expect you to clear up the mess.I've written a number of aoMake WordPress Easier for Clientsa articles (see part 1 and part 2). In those examples, code was placed in the theme's functions.php file....

Test.ical.ly Blog: PHP 5.4 with traits, Doctrine 2.2 and then Symfony3?
On the Test.ical.ly blog there's a new post looking ahead to the next release of PHP, 5.4, and what it could mean for some of the popular tools out there - specifically Symfony and Doctrine.It shouldn't be long until the first alpha version of PHP 5.4 will be released and with it there will be a lot of new features such as array dereferencing and traits to name but a few. What does that mean to the roadmaps of Doctrine and Symfony?He mentions the experiments that are proposed on the Doctrine project that...

PHP and Me Blog: Use Phing to Update your SVN-Version-Controlled Website Automatically, Through FTP
On the "PHP and Me" blog there's a new entry from Pinpin Bysma showing how to use the PHP-based deployment tool Phing to update your production website via an FTP connection, automated by a Phing build.If you're working on a PHP project, like with any other project, probably comes a time when you need to "build a new release," e.g. update the production web site with the latest version of the code. And doing the whole thing manually isn't the most efficient way to get things done, especially if you're...

How Would You Engineer A PEAR2/Pyrus Distribution Architecture?

How Would You Engineer A PEAR2/Pyrus Distribution Architecture?
Image via Wikipedia I was recently accused on the Zend Framework Contributors mailing list of having aostrong feelingsa towards Pyrus (i.e. the PEAR Group's Installer/Packager for PEAR2) and not in a positive way. It's a fair description. PEAR is, putting it lightly, a very old architecture which makes it very resistant to change. With the idea of PEAR2 and Pyrus, I had hoped to see a renewal - the advancement of a PEAR architecture for the 21st Century. Instead, and this is just my opinion, PEAR2/Pyrus...

Sebastian Bergmann's Blog: Towards Better Code Coverage Metrics in the PHP World
Sebastian Bergmann has a new post to his blog talking about some of the future plans for better code coverage metrics for PHP applications (not just the statistics that we have now as generated from PHPUnit runs combined with Code_Coverage PEAR package and Xdebug).Xdebug currently only supports what is usually referred to as Line Coverage.
