Interview with Rob Allen Author of Zend Framework in Action
November 12, 2012 @ 09:47:52

On 7PHP.com today they've posted the latest in their interview series with people from all across the PHP community. In this most recent post, they talk with Rob Allen, author of the "Zend Framework in Action" book and well known speaker and Zend Framework contributor.

In this edition I talked with Rob Allen who is the main author of the famous PHP book "Zend Framework in Action". He is very passionate about the whole Zend stuffs: he's a contributor to the Zend_Config component in Zend Framework 1, he's a member of the Zend Framework Education Advisory Board, he keeps on with his contributions with the new Zend Framework 2 and he rambles a lot about QUALITY Zend Framework tutorials on his blog. Rob is fond of writing; his latest PHP-Advent article is "Better Than the Rest" and is also a regular conference speaker, speaking at the likes of ZendCon, PHP North West, PHP|Tek and a whole lots of places.

In the interview Rob answers questions about:

  • How he got started with PHP
  • His advice to beginning PHP developers and ones looking to improve themselves
  • Who he works (IDE, debugging, testing)
  • Some recommended resources to learning and keeping up to date
  • and some of his thoughts about conferences

PHPMaster.com:
An Intro to Virtual Proxies, Part 1
April 19, 2012 @ 08:52:44

On PHPMaster.com today there's a new tutorial from Alejandro Gervasio about using virtual proxies in your application - a method in development that provides a layer of abstraction on top of domain objects and makes it more efficient to work with (and lazy load) them.

Often referenced by a few other fancy names, the substitute is generically called a virtual proxy, a sort of stand-in that exploits the neatness of Polymorphism and interacts with the actual domain objects. Proxies aren't new to PHP. Doctrine and Zend Framework 2.x make use of them, although with different aims. On behalf of a didactic cause, however, it would be pretty instructive to implement some custom proxy classes and use them for lazy-loading a few basic aggregates from the database, this way illustrating how virtual proxies do their stuff under the hood.

He starts off by setting up a domain model for a "Post" and "Author" - a typical blog example.Based on the definition of these classes, he creates a mapper class to generate Author objects and an "AuthorProxy" class that uses a "loadAuthor" method to only load in the author's details when a property is requested. He gives a bit more code showing it in action and the difference between using the normal Author and AuthorProxy class.

PHPBuilder.com:
The ABC's of PHP Introduction to PHP
February 27, 2009 @ 09:31:10

PHPBuilder.com is starting off a new series today that, if you're new to the PHP language, aims to teach you everything you might need to know to get up to speed. Today they've posted the first article in the series, an introduction to the author (Peter Shaw) and a mention of what PHP can do for you.

In this 10 part series, I'm going to take you through the basics of PHP and hopefully give you a taste of what such a versatile language can do. I am not, however, going to preach that PHP is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I'll let you decide that for yourself!

He introduces himself first, talking about some of his past experience with PHP and other various languages. He then goes on to talk about where PHP came from, a high-level look at how it works in both the web and command-line environments.

PHPFreaks.com:
Writing for PHP Freaks
October 08, 2008 @ 07:51:58

If you're looking for a way to give back to the PHP community, there's plenty of ways - one of which could be writing for PHPFreaks.com.

We have decided to give people the chance to write tutorials and blog posts for PHP Freaks. [...] You'll be writing about things that are of general interest to PHP developers and you will be writing tutorials for people who are learning about PHP at any level (i.e. from beginner tutorials to advanced topics). We would rather have tutorials that teach programming/coding concepts or theory than specific things, such as a blog.

You'll need to request membership and join the "Authors" group to get started. Check out their list of other criteria you'll need to match too.

Zend Developer Zone:
Davey Shafik and Ben Ramsey on the Zend Certification Exam Study Guide
October 09, 2006 @ 14:56:00

On the Zend Developer Zone today, there's an interview with the co-authors of the recently released book from php|architect, the Zend Certification Study Guide.

The new Zend Certification Study Guide is out and the initial reviews look good. Since this was a topic of interest to me (mainly because I've yet to take the test) I decided to dig a little deeper. I fired up my recorder and called Davey Shafik and Ben Ramsey, the authors of the new guide, to talk to them. Here to give you a little of the back story is our conversation.

They talk about:

  • the release of the book
  • some of the contents of the chapters (including the sample chapter on security)
  • Davey's experience with the exam/Ben's use of his PHP4 certification in his work
  • and the practice tests that php|architect is offering to get developers prepared.
