Zend Developer Zone:
ACRONYM or MixedCasing in Zend Framework 2? You decide!
July 12, 2010 @ 13:54:57

On the Zend Developer Zone there's a new post from Matthew Weier O'Phinney asking a question of all of the Zend Framework users out there - which do you prefer - ACRONYM or MixedCasing for how acronyms are presented in class names.

As an example, many suggest that "Zend_PDF" is more semantically correct and easier to remember than "Zend_Pdf". On the other side of the coin, many developers feel that our MixedCasing or Titlecasing of acronyms is a simple, easily learned rule that makes typing easier. For ZF2, we started converting code to use each acronym's proper casing. However, we're not done yet, and there are good arguments on both sides of the debate.

They've set up a survey on the topic and encourage as many people as have opinions to go and cast their vote. The survey will close in about a week, so be sure and make your thoughts heard on the matter before then!

Philip Olson's Blog:
How the PHP acronym was reborn
July 20, 2007 @ 07:55:00

Time for a little nostalgia today in this new post from Philip Olson looking back at a brief history of the PHP acronym - where it came from and how it evolved to mean "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor".

While reminiscing what PHP was like back in the early early years, I stumbled upon a little historical nugget from the old website. Do you know what the acronym PHP stands for? Many of us do, or think we do. [...] But how was the definition chosen? For fun, here's a look back at the official vote that determined this new meaning way back in 1998. It might be worth mentioning that Rasmus, the father of PHP, did not vote for the eventual winner.

He also includes a few "notable quotes that could be taken out of context" from Rasmus Lerdorf concerning his opinions on the matter of the acronym's meaning as well as some other brief notes on the history of PHP and its name change.
