php[world] Conference Five Amazing Keynotes
August 21, 2014 @ 10:33:24

The php[architect] group has officially announced the five keynote speakers they'll be having at this year's php[world] conference conference.

We are excited to announce today the amazing keynote speakers that we have lined up for our php[world] conference this November. We've worked hard to find the best speakers and talks that cover the breadth of the PHP experience. We want php[world] to be a conference that pulls together all the different fragmented communities of PHP into one place to share ideas, and our keynotes reflect that mission.

The keynote speakers for this year come from a wide range of communities:

  • Luke Stokes: "Turning Your Code Into a Company: The Parts They Don't Tell You."
  • Angela Byron: "Drupal 8: A Story of Growing Up and Getting Off the Island"
  • Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire: "Idealism as code: From philosophy to empowerment"
  • Andrew Nacin: "Trust, Community, and Automatic Updates"

The final "keynote" is actually a panel of seven developers representing some of the major projects in the PHP ecosystem: WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Joomla!, Symfony, Laravel, and Zend Framework. You can find out more about these keynotes here or just check out the conference on the main conference site.

Amazon Web Services Blog:
End of Life of PEAR Channel
August 20, 2014 @ 11:14:18

If you're a user of the Amazon AWS Web Services SDK software and are using the PEAR channel for installing the tool, you'll need to check out this new post to the AWS blog about its retirement.

There's been a noticeable wave of popular PHP projects recently announcing that they will no longer support PEAR as an installation method. Because the AWS SDK for PHP provides a PEAR channel, we've been very interested in the discussion in the community on PEAR channel support. PEAR has been one of the many ways to install the AWS SDK for PHP since 2010. While it's served us well, better alternatives for installing PHP packages are now available (i.e., Composer) and literally all of the PEAR dependencies of the AWS SDK for PHP are no longer providing updates to their PEAR channels.

He goes through several of the major dependencies the AWS SDK has (like Phirum, PHPUnit and Guzzle) and how they've announced the retirement of their own PEAR channels. Updates to the AWS SDK PEAR channel will cease on September 15th, 2014 but will still be available for downloads of older versions of the library. He also links to the location of the latest Phar and Zip archives if you'd like to use those.

The main PHP.net site has officially announced the release of the latest beta in the PHP 5.6.0 series: PHP 5.6.0beta4.

A couple of RCs are to be expected, until we are confident that the release is stable enough for the final release. For that, we really need your help in testing and reporting any problems that you encounter.

This is not a production release and should not be used in any kind of production environment. You can find out more information about the major updates in this evolving documentation.

Facebook Releases the Hack Programming Language
March 21, 2014 @ 09:03:10

Yesterday marked a major point in the evolution of PHP and its ecosystem. Facebook released their version of PHP, Hack, based on the work they've been doing with the HHVM (HipHop Virtual Machine) and compiler.

Hack is a programming language for HHVM that interoperates seamlessly with PHP. Hack reconciles the fast development cycle of PHP with the discipline provided by static typing, while adding many features commonly found in other modern programming languages. Hack provides instantaneous type checking via a local server that watches the filesystem. It typically runs in less than 200 milliseconds, making it easy to integrate into your development workflow without introducing a noticeable delay.

One of the key features is that it mixes well with PHP and will feel very familiar for those already used to using PHP. The homepage for the language includes all the details you'll need to get started with it, including an interactive tutorial walking you through some of the basics. Some of the features included in the language are things like type annotations, generics, native collections and lambdas. You can find out more in their official announcement.
