Rogue Wave Software Acquires Zend
Oct 06, 2015 @ 14:57:39

Zend has posted a new press release about their acquisition by Rogue Wave Software, a company specializing in tools and services "making it easy to write, test, and run complex code."

Rogue Wave Software announced today that it has acquired Zend Technologies, the leader in end-to-end PHP web and mobile application development and deployment solutions. With 50 percent of the web workload running on PHP, including Magento, Drupal, and WordPress, Zend products drive PHP in the enterprise, from code creation through production deployment.

[...] “Today’s announcement expands Rogue Wave into PHP web and mobile application development, underscoring our goal to make developers heroes by accelerating their ability to create great code,” said Brian Pierce, CEO of Rogue Wave.

It's something that's definitely taken the PHP community by surprise and left many wondering what the future of the language my hold with Zend having been such a critical part of the engine that parses and executes the PHP code we write every day. Chris Tankersly has already shared some of his thoughts on the matter and why, as he puts it, this "doesn't matter" to PHP and it's community as much as some are thinking.

A press release has been published from Senza Limiti about their acquisition of the PHPScripts.se's Ajax-enabled DataGrid component and intentions to release it under both an Open Source license and a commercial license (like MySQL has done).

All user actions are performed in real time, on the client side, giving instant feedback and providing a desktop-like user experience. Among its features are Excel support and an automated print function that presents the table in a printable format. It also allows instant editing of database rows.

According to this new post on Chris Shiflett's blog, his consultancy company has been scooped up by OmniTI, employer of several active members of the PHP community including George Schlossnagle, Theo Schlossnagle, Wez Furlong, and Laura Thomson.

I'm very excited to announce that OmniTI has acquired Brain Bulb, which basically means that I'm now a principal of OmniTI and get to work with some of the smartest and friendliest people around.

The combination of working with super smart people and getting to work on super cool and important stuff is a lot of fun. Want to join in on the fun? We're hiring PHP and Perl developers. (Knowing MySQL and PostgreSQL is also a big plus.)

There's also some comments blogged by George , Ben Ramsey, Wez, and an official press release for public consumption. Congrats to all parties involved - definitely a step in the right direction.
