Web Builder Zone:
What paradigm should PHP applications embrace?
Sep 13, 2010 @ 09:19:16

On the Web Builder Zone there's a new article posted from Giorgio Sironi asking readers what they think is the next direction web applications will head towards.

PHP is one of the most used web development programming languages in the world, and from its original creation in 1995 has evolved much both as a platform, with drivers for nearly every existent database, and as a language itself, with the introduction of several new programming paradigms.

He gives an overview of the history of the PHP language and how, at each turn, the improvements lead to more robust use of these features. He mentions three major advancements these updates have allowed developers to make - first procedural code, then object-oriented advancements and finally, with the release of the PHP 5.3 series, functional programming.

Finally, he asks the reader for a little feedback on what will become the next big thing for the PHP language in the coming years

David Coallier's Blog:
The PHP Project moving forward
Mar 06, 2008 @ 11:16:00

David Coallier has posted about the progress that's already being made in the PHP Project - a new wiki that's been installed.

The wiki is of course not opened to everyone in the world (as wikis are usually a source of big mess) but only to developers that have any type of CVS access on the cvs.php.net server.

One of the first orders of business is moving the TODO list out from its current location and into the wiki, making it simple for anyone to check out what the language developers will be working on in the future.
