Dutch PHP Conference 2011

Dutch PHP Conference 2011
I have just returned from the fifth (and my second) Dutch PHP Conference (DPC). For the technical staff at Ibuildings the conference is a highlight of our year. Not only do we have a chance to visit the delightful city of Amsterdam, but we also have 3 days of stimulating tutorials and conference talks. There is the added bonus of being able to meet and exchange ideas with fellow developers from all over Europe and further afield, many of whom are the movers and shakers in the PHP world. We believe it...

Book Review: Producing Open Source Software

Book Review: Producing Open Source Software
I've been at a number of community run, focused, and attended conferences so far this year. And despite our celebration of the results and benefits of a community, we often forget all the effort that goes into the mechanics and operations behind the scenes.

Sasa Stamenkovic's Blog: Eclipse vs NetBeans for PHP Development

Sasa Stamenkovic's Blog: Eclipse vs NetBeans for PHP Development
In a new post to his blog Sasa Stamenkovic compares two of the most popular IDEs PHP developers are using these days - Eclipse and NetBeans and how they stack up on various criteria including configuration, navigation, version control support and debugging.I was happy Eclipse fanboy for quite a long time, and I can say that I still am. I like to try out new things, but this IDE was doing perfect job and I stick to it for PHP development. But few months ago I have tried NetBeans 7.0, and boy, after few...

Zend Developer Zone: Liskov Substitution Principle...attempted

Zend Developer Zone: Liskov Substitution Principle...attempted
In a previous post to the Zend Developer Zone Keith Casey talked about the SOLID principles of software development, a set of guidelines that can help to make software more maintainable and easier to work with. In this new post he looks at the "L" in SOLID, the Liskov Substitution Principle. So the Liskov Substitution Principle boils down to: method/class preconditions cannot be strengthened, method/class post conditions can't be weakened, all exceptions thrown must equally interchangeable and method...

RandomBugs.com: Apache Dynamic Virtual Hosting and PHP security

RandomBugs.com: Apache Dynamic Virtual Hosting and PHP security
On the RandomBugs blog today there's a new post looking at some of the considerations made when setting up Apache and PHP for dynamic virtual hosting.It's been a while since I configured the latest Dynamic Mass Virtual Hosting Server. Last time I used mod_vhost_alias to create a dynamic virtual hosting and it worked without any problem for what we need in that time. [...] Now, the problem is a little bit changed: We need a secure sever which should support ftp virtual users with quota and we don't have...

Kevin Schroeder's Blog: Passing typed ActionScript objects to Flex using PHP and a message queue

Kevin Schroeder's Blog: Passing typed ActionScript objects to Flex using PHP and a message queue
Continuing on in his Flex and PHP series Kevin Schroeder has a new post to his blog today looking at how to send typed ActionScript objects to Flex so he could pass PHP objects and their structure directly back to the waiting frontend.What I wanted to do was use the sales notification mechanism to pass PHP objects to Flex using the message queue. But I could not get the unserialization mechanism to work and so I had to settle for passing a simple message that a sale had been made. However, because you...

PHP North West 2011

PHP North West 2011
We might still be in the thick of the summer conference season, but there's an event coming up this autumn which has me very excited: PHP North West 2011. This is a regional PHP conference based in Manchester, UK, and I've been involved with it since it began (I'm surprised to find this is our fourth edition, it still feels like a shiny new adventure!). This year the dates are 8th and 9th of October and with an added tutorial day on the Friday, it is bigger (and of course better) than ever. In case you...

Interviewed about Open Source
I just want to give everyone a small heads-up that I got interviewed about Open Source and what I like about it for Canadian website Web Central Station. The interview got published yesterday.

Collective Wisdom from the Experts

Collective Wisdom from the Experts
I've finally had a chance to read a book I bought a while ago called ao97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know - Collective Wisdom from the Expertsa. Not the shortest title for a book, but very descriptive. I bought this book at the OSCON Conference in Portland last year. It's an interesting book and I'm sure anyone involved in software development would benefit from reading it. More than 40 architects, including Neal Ford and Michael Nygard, offer advice for communicating with stakeholders,...

Midgard Create and VIE in the Aloha Editor conference

Midgard Create and VIE in the Aloha Editor conference
The Aloha Editor Developer Conference is happening this week in Hacker Dojo, Mountain View. While some other events may steal a bit of focus from this one, there seems to be a good amount of energy here. The event opened with Haymo Meran's keynote on the state and roadmap of Aloha Editor. As part of this there was an interesting observation: Aloha Editor has an impressive rate of adoption: Drupal, TYPO3, WordPress, Midgard and others are now in the process of integrating the editor. If all of these work...

Zend Developer Zone: SOLID OO Principles

Zend Developer Zone: SOLID OO Principles
On the Zend Developer Zone there's a recent post from Keith Casey about some of the basics of good OOP design, specifically in following the SOLID principles - a set of five guidelines that make code easier to manage and maintain over time.As much as we're like to believe that "loose coupling, high cohesion" is enough, when you actually dive into the concept, you find that it's more descriptive than prescriptive. If you want to know how to actually apply these to your day to day development, you have to...

He sets it up as a new filter, ZC_Filter_HTMLPurifier, and creates the basic filtering interface...

NetTuts.com: Quick Tip: Integrate Compass into an Existing CodeIgniter

NetTuts.com: Quick Tip: Integrate Compass into an Existing CodeIgniter
In a new screencast from NetTuts.com today they show you how to integrate the popular Compass CSS authoring framework into an existing CodeIgniter-based application.I was recently asked about how to use Compass in an existing CodeIgniter project. It seems that the emailer was under the impression that Compass was made for Ruby and Rails. But that's not the case at all! Note that Ruby will need to be installed on your system in order for Compass to work correctly.The screencast (coming in at a quick five...

Chris Roane's Blog: What does it mean to be an Advanced PHP Programmer?

Chris Roane's Blog: What does it mean to be an Advanced PHP Programmer?
In a new post to his blog Chris Roane has a few suggestions about advanced programming and what it might take to be considered an advanced programmer in any language.On a previous post I had someone comment that they did not agree that the code implementation that was presented in the article was advanced (which was described in the title). They also claimed that I was not an advanced PHP programmer. This made me think. Not because my programming skill or knowledge was challenged. But because I'm not...

Kevin Schroeder's Blog: Connecting PHP to ActionScript and Flex using Stomp

Kevin Schroeder's Blog: Connecting PHP to ActionScript and Flex using Stomp
Kevin Schroeder has a recent post to his blog today looking at how he used Stomp to connect his backend PHP to frontend Flex, a text-based protocol that can be used to connect to a MQ server instance.In yesterday's post I talked a little bit about some of the details on how I used messaging to connect a front end on demand request to a back end scheduled data processing mechanism. In this post we're going to talk about how to send data from a web page to a running Flex application without using HTTP. It...
