Giorgio Sironi:
The full list of my articles on DZone
April 25, 2014 @ 10:13:43

Giorgio Sironi has posted his quite impressive list of articles he's published on the DZone.com site to his blog today. They cover a wide range of topics - everything from refactoring to design patterns out to, well, lots of other random topics.

From 2010 to the end of 2013 I have written a few articles each week on DZone. Here is the full list as a reference.

Some of the posts fall into different "series" categories including "Practical PHP Patterns", "Practical PHP Refactoring", "Practical PHP Testing Patterns" and "Lean Tools". There's some great content here - and lots of it - so be sure to check out the list and see if there's anything that catches your eye!

SitePoint PHP Blog:
HHVM revisited
December 23, 2013 @ 10:57:01

The SitePoint PHP blog has a new post from Bruno Skvorc talking about a technology that's growing more and more popular all the time in the PHP ecosystem - HHVM, the virtual machine version of Facebook's HipHop software.

Just over two years have passed since the last post about HHVM by Matt Turland. What changed in that time? Did anything? Let's see just how successful PHP's quest for performance was.

Bruno takes a step back and, for those not sure what the HHVM is, explains the technology a bit and what some of the project's goals are. He talks about its compatibility with current software (like OSes and web servers) and the inclusion of FastCGI support. He also talks about some of the other main issues around the use of the HHVM like:

  • Performance considerations
  • Pre-analyzing
  • Authoritative Cache

7PHP.com:
Win (TWO) Free Tickets To Hear Rob Allen Introduce Zend Framework 2 (Nomad PHP)
May 07, 2013 @ 12:51:26

The 7PHP.com site, in collaboration with the Nomand PHP user group is giving away two free tickets to attend this month's user group event (happening May 22nd).

NomadPHP is like a virtual PHP User Group mainly for people who do not have the chance to avail of a local PHP user group. But it is open to ANYONE around the world. NomadPHP is an initiative brought forward by the icon of The PHP Community, namely 'His Awesomeness' Mr Cal Evans. It will kick-start its first group talk session on the Wednesday 22nd May 2013 (i.e in some 16 days as from the date of this post). The speaker is the PRO PHP Guy / PRO Zend Framework Evangelist and author of the book Zend Framework in action, Rob Allen. Rob will be introducing and talking about Zend Framework 2 - it is a must for anyone willing to learn ZF 2.

The Nomad PHP user group is designed to be a "user group for those that don't have one". It's a virtual group meeting once a month that you can attend anywhere in the world. You do have to purchase tickets, however. This post shows you how you can enter to win one of the two free tickets, though - either via email or by writing a PHP article for 7PHP.com.

DevShed Forums:
PHP is a fractal of bad design? Hardly.
August 29, 2012 @ 09:41:55

A while back there was an article that put a negative spin on PHP ("PHP: a fractal of bad design") and there was a huge community response to it with over 1400 comments on the post itself. Over on the DevShed forums, there's a lengthy new post that goes back over that article, piece by piece, and evaluates everything that was said.

As I've seen this article a number of times, I'd like to go through it to see what everyone has to say on the subject. Warning: This is just stupidly, ludicrously long. it takes an existing 5-page article and tears it apart nearly sentence-by-sentence.

He goes back through each of the sections - Stance, Arguments, Philosophy, etc - and includes quotes from the articles and his own impressions/thoughts about them. There's a section covering some of the individual complaints that were mentioned and things like PHP's OOP model and security.

PHPMaster Security Roundup
July 18, 2012 @ 09:22:07

Security has become more of a hot topic in the PHP community recently and PHPMaster.com has pulled together a list of resources you can read up on to get some great ideas for securing your application.

The unfortunate truth of the matter is there's no excuse for [the LinkedIn, Yahoo!, eHarmony and Last.fm] leaks; they would not have been possible if simple, well-known security precautions were taken. Are you protecting yourself and your applications by guarding against SQL-injection attacks? Are you filtering and validating user input? Are you properly hashing user passwords? I hope so! If not, read some of the security-focused articles PHPMaster has published throughout the past year and apply these best practices to your code today!

Articles in their list include:
