Kevin Schroeder's Blog: Debugging a mobile app

Kevin Schroeder's Blog: Debugging a mobile app
Kevin Schroeder has been working on a Zend Framework-based mobile application (Android) and ran up against a debugging issue that he would normally solve with features of his IDE, but since those weren't available on the device, he got a bit more creative.The solution is similar to what I did with Debugging an RPC call in Zend Framework. What this does is set the cookies from the remote browser to debug on the local instance of the Zend debugger. To kick it off simply open up the URL to the debug kickoff...

Conference Guide 201

Conference Guide 201
There's a certain smell in the air. In most of the Northern Hemisphere, we call it "Fall". In the PHP Community, we call it "Conference Season". We've just passed the International PHP Conference but still have ZendCon, DayCamp4Devs and CodeWorks around the corner.. will you be ready?

PHPNW10: Friday Social

PHPNW10: Friday Social
Another year, another great PHP North West conference organised by Jeremy Coates and his team at Magma Digital and the PHP North West User Group. This year, I went along with my camera to try my hand at conference photography for the first time, in between attending plenty of great talks. These are the best of my shots from the pre-conference socials on the Friday night before the conference. There'll be more shots from the conference tomorrow. I've also posted my thoughts on being a first-time...

International PHP Conference - WebTechCon 2010 - A Wrap Up

International PHP Conference - WebTechCon 2010 - A Wrap Up
The IPC 2010 is over again. Actually it ended last Thursday, but unfortunately I had no time to write this article before. It was a great conference as always. Meeting with the PHP family again has been as exciting as always. I did not only have a lot of fun, but gathered some new ideas for future projects as well. Having occupied myself with a lot of JavaScript and jQuery stuff in the last one and a half years I decided it would be appropriate to share some of my gathered knowledge. Therefore, I gave...

Setting up a new company

Setting up a new company
In July, after another few months in Spain as a PHP consultant for a European debt collection company, I have been trudging along with my family in Kalmar. I am still doing consultancy work as a PHP developer and mostly for the very same company. It's a great opportunity to work with PHP in a financial context where accuracy and quality is important. But the last couple of months I have also been busy setting up a new company as Artamus AB is investing in myASwedish event guide AEvenemang.se. This means...

Test with Frisk!

Test with Frisk!
For a while now, I've had a renewed interesting testing applications - unit, functional, performance, etc - and have been learning all I can about the software you can use to run these tests. Obviously, one of the mainstays of the PHP world is PHPUnit for unit testing. There's a few others out there that are good for other kinds of testing - too many to name (and lots that aren't written in PHP). Lately, though, I've been looking more at testing the frontend of applications and their flow. I started...

Integrating Gearman Into Zend Framework

Integrating Gearman Into Zend Framework
When scale and performance is important, you start to look into moving operations into synchronous or asynchronous tasks. This is important for any web application that must scale out and/or to add new ways of handling feedback to your users. While I will not be going into detail of how to operate Gearman or briefing you on ways of utilizing gearman, what I am going to show you is how to incorporate Gearman into being it's own Zend Framework application. This article will go into incorporating Gearman...

Symfony Day

Symfony Day
ASo last week I went to Symfony Day. All the other Liipers where having fun at Herbstausflug, but my recently operated knee appreciated the more intellectual alternative to having fun. The conference was amazingly affordable for such a nice location. Food and drink were also included, though the Wifi was a bit flaky. The line up was also quite impressive with Jon and Kris coming all the way to the US for the event. Fabien also gave another talk in his "The state of Symfony2" series. Admittedly ever since...

Jay Allen's Blog: Adminer | The World's Smallest MySQL Admin Script

Jay Allen's Blog: Adminer | The World's Smallest MySQL Admin Script
Jay Allen has found what he calls the world's smallest MySQL admin script and has posted about it to his CodingThis.com blog - Adminer.I've spent years using phpMyAdmin (much to my chagrin). And I've recently warmed up to MySQL Workbench. But it wasn't until this week that I stumbled across Adminer, a single-file PHP application for MySQL administration. It's hard not to be impressed by Adminer, which is both devilishly simple and elegantly designed. The file downloads as adminer-2.3.2.php; save it as...

Zend Developer Zone: Deleting indexes from Zend_Registry and why you shouldn't do it !

Zend Developer Zone: Deleting indexes from Zend_Registry and why you shouldn't do it !
New on the Zend Developer Zone today there's a post that looks at working with the Zend_Registry component of the Zend Framework and how deleting the index out of it directly could be a bad thing for your application.Zend_Registry is the implementation of the Registry design pattern in the Zend Framework. It is similar to the $_GLOBALS array in pure PHP, but unlike it, it does not provide a transparent way to unset values at a specified index. As you will see in this short article, there is a very simple...

ServerGrove.com: Creating console commands with Symfony2

ServerGrove.com: Creating console commands with Symfony2
On the ServerGrove.com blog today there's this new post showing you how to create console commands with your Symfony2 codebase in addition to the normal websites you might have generated.Symfony 2 is mainly used to create web application, however, sometimes you need to extend your app and need a command line tool to help perform tasks around the application. With symfony 1.4.x these were called tasks and it was possible to create a skeleton by using the symfony generate:task task.While there's not a tool...

You can also see the slides (on slideshare) and also read the series of blog posts I wrote on this topic which originally inspired the talk.

A week of IPC 2010

A week of IPC 2010
This week the International PHP Conference was held in Mainz, Germany. Bastian and I (Jordi) attended since we were both speaking there. The conference was overall quite good, it was the 10th edition so they definitely know what they're doing with the organization. I first held a talk about knowledge sharing presenting all the ways we encourage that at Liip, and trying to get a discussion going with the audience, which worked fairly well I believe. The other two talks of mine, about web security and...
