Zend Developer Zone:
America's 10 Best Cities to Live in and How They Stack Up for PHP Developers
September 28, 2006 @ 11:21:08

Every developer (PHP or not) out there has sat back in their favorite chair and thought about what else is out there. Well, Cal Evans is no different and he shares a tool he was linked to (by Terry Chay) that could help you find that "what's next" in your career.

I love Nashville, TN. Well, ok, I really like it. It's a great town but I'm getting a bit restless. The problem I face is that I never know what the environment for programmers will be in a given city before moving there. So when Terry Chay briefly mentioned indeed.com's salary search tool, it sparked my interest. If I, a PHP programmer, wanted to move to another city in the US, how would I fare salary wise? Since I don't want to list every city in the US, I've selected CNN/Money's Best Places to Live in America as my list of cities to compare.

Looking specifically for PHP-related jobs, he made the query, found the cities, ranked them and listed the average salary for the area. He also grabbed the cost of living for each location based on the closest large city and matched them up.

The result?

So it's agreed then, we'll all meet in Columbia, MD.

Check out the post and the lovely graph Cal has put together for more cities and their stats.

Elizabeth Naramore's Blog:
Thanks to PHP Appalachia Sponsors
September 20, 2006 @ 15:46:00

On her blog, Elizabeth Naramore has posted some thanks to the sponsores out there that are helping out with this year's PHP Appalachia event and some last minute details for those attending.

I wanted to give a quick acknowledgement to our sponsors for the event, as posted by PHP Appalachia site. We have so many sponsors, and so many door prizes to give away, a good time will definitely be had by all. Their donations are really helping our grass roots gathering come together, and we all greatly appreciate their efforts. I also want to give a quick thanks to Cal Evans who also personally donated numerous t-shirts and goodies as well.

She gives a rough schedule for things, including how the talks will run and links to some info on the area to let you prepare for your trip.

Melvin Rivera's Blog:
Shuttle Preview
May 16, 2006 @ 06:25:53

WordPress users all over the world have commented on how far behind the administrative area has lagged behind the power of the rest of the site. Fortunately, there's been a project underway to bring it up to date. Unfortunately, according to Melvin Rivera, it's not all it's cracked up to be.

Let's be frank here, WordPress rocks, no doubt, but since it's early beginning, the interface design has lagged behind it's technical powers. This is why since December of 2004, Khaled, Michael Heilemann, Joen Asmussen, Chris J Davis, Joshua Sigar and later Bryan Veloso started Shuttle, a collaborative effort to bring design beauty to the WordPress admin interface. Well, it's been almost a year and a half and the Shuttle team finally release their final mockups to the public.

He notes that the screenshots in this post seem somewhat disappointing. He (and loads of other WordPress users) were hoping for something a bit more "slick" and usable instead of just a rehash of the same look and feel with a few bells and whistles. He even links to another plugin that gets a bit closer (Tiger Administration)
