Matthew Weier O'Phinney:
Deployment with Zend Server (Part 8 of 8)
September 18, 2014 @ 11:20:04

Matthew Weier O'Phinney has posted the last part of his "Deployment with Zend Server" series with part eight. This part focuses on some hints around the actual deployment and automation.

This is the final in a series of eight posts detailing tips on deploying to Zend Server. Zend Server SDK to deploy your Zend Server deployment packages (ZPKs) from the command line. Today, I'll detail how I automate deployment with zf-deploy and zs-client (the Zend Server SDK), and wrap up the series with some closing thoughts.

He quickly summarizes the previous parts of the series as individual steps and wonders if there's a better way than doing each of them manually. He shows exactly this with the automation handling that zf-deploy and zs-client offer combined with a make script defining steps for the deploy, ZPK update and a cleanup/Composer update task.

Ben Ramsey:
Learning a New Codebase
September 18, 2014 @ 09:38:51

In a new post to his site Ben Ramsey shares a few suggestions around things to ask and do to learn a new codebase (whether that means in a new job or coming into a new open source project).

A few days ago, my friend Ed Finkler started a new job. Earlier this week, he posted on Twitter: "First days humble us all." Having begun a new job myself, I shared Ed's sentiment. Last weekend, while at the Madison PHP Conference, we were discussing what developers can do during the interview process to get an idea of the kind of codebase a company has.

He includes a few questions for developers to ask, either during the interview or once hired, about the codebase itself including:

  • what coding standards the company follows
  • how much of the code is covered by tests
  • have the company's deployment process described

He also recommends learning the codebase by diving in and either writing tests for untested areas or work through bug reports and fix (then test) them.

An interview with Manuel Raynaud, lead developer of Thelia, a Symfony-based e-commerce solution. Introducing the new Thelia 2 and how it's in perfect harmony with Symfony.

The interview starts with a brief introduction of Manuel and a quick overview of what the Thelia project is about and the current state of things. They get into some of the story behind Thelia and what parts of Symfony (components) it uses behind the scenes. They finish out the interview talking about some of the advantages the project offers and challenges they've faced along the way. There's also a bit about how Thelia is involved in the Symfony events and community.

Matthew Weier O'Phinney:
Deployment with Zend Server (Part 7 of 8)
September 17, 2014 @ 10:44:13

Matthew Weier O'Phinney has posted his next-to-last article in his "Deployment with Zend Server" series, part seven of eight concerning the "zs-client" tool.

This is the seventh in a series of eight posts detailing tips on deploying to Zend Server. The previous post in the series detailed setting up and clearing page caching. Today, I'm sharing how to use the Zend Server SDK to deploy your Zend Server deployment packages (ZPKs) from the command line.

Zs-client is a handy tool that lets you interact directly with the Zend Server API is a more programatic way without having to worry about the request signing process. He walks you through a sample use of the tool and shows how to add a target application and use the tool to get its current status. He also includes a basic command that lets you run an automatic update on the application.
