Jordi Boggiano's Blog: PHP Console in Your Browser

Jordi Boggiano's Blog: PHP Console in Your Browser
Jordi Boggiano has a new post today looking at his PHP console script that works in your browser that sets up easily and works from your localhost web server - php-console.Since I spend most of my days programming PHP I tend to need that a lot and a few years back I wrote a small script that would let me type php code in my browser and execute it. Nothing fancy, but quite useful. Over the years a few people got interest seeing me use it and asked for the sources, so instead of repackaging it every time,...

ZendCon Unconference Announcement

ZendCon Unconference Announcement
Yes, there's going to be unconference (uncon) sessions at ZendCon 2010 ! I was chosen to run these very interesting, educative and as-equally high-valued parallel sessions at the PHP conference in Santa-Clara, CA.For those who never heard about uncon sessions before, let me explain the situation a bit. Each conference has only so-many slots for talks and the hardest part is to choose the best talks people are willing to pay an entrance ticket for.But that doesn't mean those who've submitted one or more...

php|architect: Analysis: Following Ruby Makes PHP Number Two
On the php|architect blog today Bill Karwin has posted his response to this interesting suggestion from Dennis Hoston about how to "reinvent" object-oriented programming in PHP.Dennis acknowledges that the name needs work. But, getting past that, his blog is about some creative experiments Dennis is working on. He has come up with a pretty innovative way of creating objects dynamically in PHP that allows for some usage that conventional PHP coding techniques don't support.He talks about some of the...

web2project v2.1 Release Notes

web2project v2.1 Release Notes
As of 22 September 2010, web2project v2.1 is officially released! You can download it from SourceForge now. For Project Managers, there are not a huge number of tangible improvements. This was mostly a cleanup release: The most important part is that now a User can add Tasklogs for people other than themselves. When you create or edit a Task, you can denote "Allow users to add task logs for others" which allows just that. Users can add hours for anyone currently assigned to work on the Task. The system...

Dennis Hotson's Blog: PHP Object Oriented Programming Reinvented

Dennis Hotson's Blog: PHP Object Oriented Programming Reinvented
Dennis Hotson has a new post to his Tumblr blog about what he calls PHP object-oriented programming reinvented - a chunk of code he's created that lets you build classes out of objects.It's tentatively called "PHP Object Oriented Programming Reinvented". Although it turns out the acronym is kind of unfortunate. I'm still working on that... The main idea is that classes aren't really very special at all, they're just objects like everything else. They don't even have names.. you give your class a name by...

Adam Pullen's Blog: Execution Filters in Symfony

Adam Pullen's Blog: Execution Filters in Symfony
Adam Pullen has posted a three-part series of articles looking at execution filters in Symfony to modify/handle the request differently than just the normal GET or POST would pass through.Symfony is a powerful PHP Framework. One of the features that I have really taken advantage in my last project is request filtering or execution filtering. Request filters allow you to inspect the request before and after the main logic is executed. Why would one want to do this? There are many reasons to implement...

PHP Console in Your Browser

PHP Console in Your Browser
So-called interactive modes for scripting languages are commonly used in the command line, and they are great for quick tests, but most of the time when I try something it tends to grow and quickly becomes painful to handle in a CLI one-liner. Since I spend most of my days programming PHP I tend to need that a lot and a few years back I wrote a small script that would let me type php code in my browser and execute it. Nothing fancy, but quite useful.Over the years a few people got interest seeing me use...

Chris Hartjes' Blog: Testing Form Posts in Zend Framework

Chris Hartjes' Blog: Testing Form Posts in Zend Framework
In a new post to his blog today Chris Hartjes talks about the trials and tribulations he had when trying to test POST requests in his Zend Framework application with Zend_Test/PHPUnit.I had done a refactoring of the way a model was pulling in stats for running backs and receivers for a fantasy game. As a result, in production (you suck Chris) you could not see results for those players. The data was there, I had not properly tested things. A familiar situation. So, I fixed the code and wrote my...

Speaking at PHP London, October 2010

Speaking at PHP London, October 2010
In October I will be speaking at the PHP London user group on Thursday 7th at the Theodore Bullfrog pub in London. I'm giving a new talk called "The Source Control Landscape", looking at the products currently available in the source control arena, how the distributed systems have changed the landscape, and how we can choose between them all today. I'm really looking forward to the event, it's always a good crowd and I love to meet new people as well as meet up with existing friends - see you there :)

a few new ideas

a few new ideas
Was just kicking around these ideas today a bit - we'll see if anything comes of them: Social ato do' list Rough idea: a service to allow people to agree to do things together. That could really be taken in many directions, and I'm not sure which (if any) I'd take, but I haven't seen anything quite like what's in my head yet. Social media profile disambiguator Perhaps there's some API service already, but I'd like to be able to look up someone by name and get a list of all their SM profiles. looking up...
