The Voices of the ElePHPant podcast has release their latest episode - a new interview with Bill Karwin.

Cal's "three questions" for Bill talk about both general development and SQL topics:

  • Can you describe for us what second system syndrome is and why you think Zend Framework 2 falls into it?
  • What's the biggest mistake you see project developers making when it comes to SQL?
  • Can you briefly explain what is a SQL anti-pattern and give a few examples?

php|architect Blog:
The NoSQL Hype Curve is Bending
December 29, 2010 @ 12:58:12

On the php|architect blog today Bill Karwin has shared his thoughts on NoSQL and how, despite the popularity of it during 2010, the hype curve is bending and companies are realizing it's less of the "silver bullet" they expected.

The technology hype of 2010 was clearly NoSQL, which proved to be more of a brand-name than a technical term. Today in his tech blog, Bozho set out his view that NoSQL is probably not a good choice for startups that don't know yet where their database and application bottlenecks are.

Bill agrees, noting that the adoption of NoSQL technologies caused some major meltdowns when all things weren't properly considered. He points out that "a little knowledge is dangerous - the more little, the more dangerous" and developers should seriously consider the impact a NoSQL environment should have before jumping in head first.

Zend:
Zend Framework Database Access Webinar (Oct 31st, 2007)
October 31, 2007 @ 08:48:00

As a quick reminder, there's still time to register for Zend's latest Webinar event - Zend Framework Database Access happening today at 9am PDT:

One of the core features of the Zend Framework is its database access component. The DB component is designed with a "keep it simple" principle, giving access to advanced data access features, balanced with database implementation abstraction, extreme simplicity, and ease of use. Another goal of the DB component is to encourage good practices and reduce performance and security flaws. Zend's Bill Karwin will give an overview of the capabilities of the Zend DB component, and show several examples of using it in PHP 5 for tasks.

Topics covered include different types of database connections, running queries, checking the performance stats of the execution and building tables similar to ActiveRecord.

Zend Developer Zone:
Zend Framework Team has a new Leader
October 05, 2006 @ 07:58:00

According to this quick post on the Zend Developer Zone today, the Zend Framework project has a new leader to take the place of Jayson Maynard when he left.

After a difficult search, we have found the seasoned veteran we need to track, manage, and coordinate our ever growing group of contributors and Zend liaisons, and our lengthy list of components and sub-projects on our published roadmap for ZF 1.0, and beyond.

Fortunately, we were introduced to Bill Karwin. Bill is up to this challenge, having performed similar project organization duties at several companies, including Borland and Lutris Technologies. He is also committed to the open-source community, and is a member of the MySQL Guild.

Cal has some other nice things to say about Bill, including a compliment on Bill's grasp on the Zend Framework project.
