Artur Ejsmont's Blog: Publishing queue messages from PHP using different backends

Artur Ejsmont's Blog: Publishing queue messages from PHP using different backends
Artur Ejsmont has a new post sharing some benchmarks he put together about the "messages per second" and "time to execute" when using PHP to pull from various messaging backends.I have looked at the state of different messaging backends recently and i ran a little benchmark to see what is the rough comparison of message publishing throughput. Results that i got are quite surprising. What i wanted to achieve is some sort of reassurance before choosing a messaging bus for my PHP project.Running both the...

NetTuts.com: Create Instagram Filters With PHP

NetTuts.com: Create Instagram Filters With PHP
On NetTuts.com there's a new tutorial showing how you can create Instagram-like filters in PHP using the ImageMagick library/extension.PHP comes bundled with GD (GIF Draw/Graphics Draw), which is a library for the dynamic creation of images. It can be used for simpler image operation, such as resizing, cropping, adding watermarks, creating thumbnails (Jeffrey wrote about it), applying basic photo filters - you've probably used it before. Unfortunately, if you want to create something more complex with...

Alex Hudson's Blog: A (fond) farewell to Zend Framework

Alex Hudson's Blog: A (fond) farewell to Zend Framework
In this most recent post to his blog Alex Hudson says a "fond goodbye" to using the Zend Framework for his applications after trying out some of the functionality that's in Zend Framework version 2:I've been a Zend Framework user for a while. I've been using PHP long enough to appreciate the benefits of a good framework, and developed a number of sophisticated applications using ZF, to have grown a certain fondness for it. [...] That said, I actually don't feel like much of what I'm about to say is...

In this 2-part series I'll present a big-picture overview of the sort of programming problems CI can solve, show how it can be achieved with the help of specialized...

Using JIRA's REST API to Create a Dashboard

Using JIRA's REST API to Create a Dashboard
If you read this blog often, you'll know that I am: crazy about APIs living with some accessibility issues Put these two things together and what do you get? Actually don't answer that! Today what you get is an example of integrating with JIRA's REST API, because their recent "upgrade" locked me out of the issue listings pages completely and I really do need to be able to see a list of bugs! Their bug editing screen is quite usable, so it's just the list that I need here, but you could easily call their...

Improving Query Performance

Improving Query Performance
Some aspects of Natural Load Testing's site have never really performed that well. The site was under incredibly rapid development so I didn't want to invest too much time in making performance tweaks on code or even architecture that might change in the next week. No joke, we've re-written our load tester at least three times. Two complete re-writes in the same language, then we switched languages to get better threading performanceI think we hit some sort of limit in the past week or two, and things...

Svbtle Versus Obtvse

Svbtle Versus Obtvse
I just read a post by Daniel Howells about these two stories on Hacker News: Codename: Svbtle by Dustin Curtis Codename: Obtvse Before I make my small point, let me give you the quick synopsis. Briefly, Dustin Curtis made his own blogging platform, opened it up to a few friends, and blogged about it. Someone else submitted it to Hacker News, and that's where the story takes a turn.The Hacker News community quickly attacked Dustin's persona (he describes himself as a superhero) and the exclusivity of...

Chris Morrell's Blog: Introducing Zit, an object-oriented dependency injection container

Chris Morrell's Blog: Introducing Zit, an object-oriented dependency injection container
In his latest post Chris Morrell introduces a project he's been working on to help with his dependency injection needs - Zit, an object-oriented dependency injection container similar to the Pimple DIC from Fabien Potencier.I'll admit right now that I'm fairly new to the world of dependency injection containers. I usually do my dependency injection "manually" and have always thought that there must be a better way. Then I came across Pimple, which is a wonderfully simple solution to the problem. The only...

Freek Lijten's Blog: SOLID - The S is for Single responsibility

Freek Lijten's Blog: SOLID - The S is for Single responsibility
Freek Lijten has written up a new post to his blog about a set of development principles that have been getting more press in the PHP community lately - SOLID. In his post he starts with a look at the "S" in the set - "Single Responsibility".The single responsibility principle isn't all that hard to explain. It states that an object should do one thing, and one thing only. [...] A responsibility is a reason to change, and a class should only have one of those. Now all of this may sound abstract and since...

InfoWorld: Review: 2 PHP tools rise above the rest
InfoWorld has a new article posted looking at some of the PHP IDE options out there and comparing some of their strengths and weaknesses including PHPStorm, Eclipse, Aptana and Zend Studio.PHP is more than just a language for junior high school kids to learn after they master balancing DIV tags in HTML. It can support enterprise-grade installations and deliver the kind of heavy lifting that brings power plants to their knees. [...] To get a flavor for the latest in PHP programming, I spent some time...
