Community News: PHP-FIG Group Launches Site & FAQ

Community News: PHP-FIG Group Launches Site & FAQ
To help resolve issues that have come up around its formation and to keep too much FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) from spreading, the "PHP-FIG" (framework interoperability group) has put together a site and a FAQ describing what they're all about.The FIG stands for Framework Interoperability Group. The name until recently was "PHP Standards Group" but this was somewhat inaccurate of the intentions of the group. [...] The idea behind the group is for project representatives to talk about the...

PHPMaster.com: Layer Supertype Pattern: Encapsulating Common Implementation in Multi-Tiered Systems
On PHPMaster.com there's a new post looking at a design pattern that's commonly in use by developers but they might not know its name - the Layer Supertype pattern and its use in multi-tiered systems.Inheritance offers a straightforward way to easily spawn a large number of objects that are semantically related to each other without having duplicate code. The concept is ridiculously simple - yet powerful: you first drop as much logic as possible within the boundaries of a base type (usually an abstract...

Joshua Thijssen's Blog: Symfony2: Implementing ACL rules in your Data Fixtures

Joshua Thijssen's Blog: Symfony2: Implementing ACL rules in your Data Fixtures
Joshua Thijssen has a new post to his blog looking at a method for setting up ACL rules in fixtures for your Symfony2-based applications.Doctrine's DataFixtures are a great way to add test data to your application. It's fairly easy to get this going: Create a fixureLoader that extends DoctrineCommonDataFixturesAbstractFixture, had a load() method and off you go. However, sometimes you want your data also to be protected by Symfony 2′s ACL layer. Since there isn't a common way to do this, here is one...

A Tale Of Open Source

A Tale Of Open Source
As soon as 5 years ago, I barely understood the meaning of Open Source. I had been working with computers for my entire life (I was using a Commodore 64 before I could walk). I had been programming them nearly as long (I wrote my first program before I started grade school). I was an early adopter of Linux (I still have a Red Hat 1 disk somewhere). But I never guessed the impact that open source would have on my life. I never appreciated the impact that open source would have on the world. The past 5...

Fabien Potencier's Blog: PHP is much better than you think

Fabien Potencier's Blog: PHP is much better than you think
Fabien Potencier (of the Symfony project) has posted his own response to some of the recent comments around PHP and its quality, pointing out mainly that PHP is about getting things done (and knows its not the "most beautiful" language out there).The biggest problem of these rants is that they come from people stuck in the old days of PHP. They either don't care or they don't want to admit that PHP actually evolves at a very fast pace, both at the language level but also at the community level. In fact,...

Paul Jones' Blog: When Possible, Use File *Resources* Instead Of File *Names*

Paul Jones' Blog: When Possible, Use File *Resources* Instead Of File *Names*
In this new post to his blog Paul Jones makes a suggestion when you're working with files or external connections in your PHP applications - pass the resource, not the file/path name for more flexibility.In testing the Aura.Http package, I have realized that it's much more flexible, testing wise, to pass around file resources (a.k.a. handles, pointers, or streams) than it is to pass around file names. When you do that, you can use a php://memory stream instead of attempting to touch the file system.He...

Juan Terminio's Blog: Setting Up a Debian VM, Step by Step

Juan Terminio's Blog: Setting Up a Debian VM, Step by Step
In this new post Juan Terminio shows you how to set up a new virtual machine (VM) that hosts a Debian system (replacing the setup of his previous tutorial for setup of a Ubuntu system) in VirutalBox.Previously, I created a tutorial on installing a 32-bit Ubuntu VM with PHP 5.3.x. I've since moved on to PHP 5.4.x and Debian, which is universally considered a safer bet for a server OS. This tutorial is what I will point back to in the future when I want to show people how to create a VM, so you should...

PHP is much better than you think

PHP is much better than you think
Rants about PHP are everywhere, and they even come from smart guys. When Jeff Atwood wrote yet another rant about PHP, it made me think about the good parts of PHP. The biggest problem of these rants is that they come from people stuck in the old days of PHP. They either don't care or they don't want to admit that PHP actually evolves at a very fast pace, both at the language level but also at the community level. In fact, it evolves much faster than any other language or web platform. It has not always...

Reddit.com: What does the day-to-day look like for a LAMP developer?

Reddit.com: What does the day-to-day look like for a LAMP developer?
In this recent post to Reddit.com, a "solid novice with PHP" asks the community for some insight into what the day-to-day life is like for an average LAMP developer.I wanted to hear from someone who does LAMP development for a living, What does your work day look like? That is to say that, I have no idea what the responsibilities for a LAMP developer look like. Are these people putting together entire websites on various platforms (wordpress, joomla, whatever)? Are you simply doing backend work (setting...

Arriving in Washington
DISCLAIMER: I'm sat next to Washington post employee (not intern) and self-proclaimed travel blog hater Masuma, so this first post will likely be awkward and self-conscious and it's all her fault. I am currently sat in Washngton DC on my third full day on my post-graduation, mid-life crisis aversion tour of the USA. My aims: get a tan, recover from the trauma that is a four year degree in Maths at Oxford and of course, explore America.It took 19 hours door to door to get here. I can now recommend Hugo...
