Zend Developer Zone:
A little fun with the average tech salaries as reported by dice.com
February 14, 2011 @ 14:53:17

On the Zend Developer Zone, Cal Evans has had some fun with salaries - specifically the salary information recently posted by Dice.com.

Every year dice.com puts together a salary survey for those of us working in tech. It's a chance to look at what other developers say they are making and either snicker or sigh wishfully. This week they released "2010-11 Tech Salary Survey Results". [...] To me, page 5 was the most interesting. Page 5 is a table of salaries by metro area.

He's created a table to lay out the data in a bit more readable (and normalized) format with Charlotte, North Carolina being the baseline and other cities diverging up and down (in salary range) from there. It helps you compare both the salary range and the normalized version of it that includes some of the cost of living that comes along with the location.

Domain Distribution by City
December 22, 2010 @ 13:56:17

Ilia Alshanetsky has posted the next set of results from his domains-running-PHP research he's been doing. In this latest post he looks at the domain distribution by city mostly falling in the US, Europe and China.

I am making available two additional geographic chats that breakdown the domain distribution by top world cities. The first chart a preview of which can been below (click to see full, browse-able/zoomable version) shows the Top 150 cities, by domain distribution. These cities represent a total 91.3% of some 102 million domains that could be resolved to a city level.

The top ranking city falls in the US in Scottsdale, Arizona (because of the large domain provider GoDaddy being based there) with the second place spot going to San Francisco, California. He's created both a interactive map you can use to see the numbers for different parts of the world and a concentration view of the same results making it a bit easier to digest.

WaxJelly Blog:
The easiest way to scrape details from a MySpace profile page with PHP
March 20, 2007 @ 10:41:00

From the WaxJelly blog today comes a handy bit of code for anyone out there looking to scrape details from just about any MySpace page out there (quick and easy).

It's amazing how just a little optimization on the part of myspace makes crawling their site so much easier. We're going to scrape the user detail (name, age, sex, etc..) from a profile, using the header info...

The script grabs the contents of the given URL, loops through, pulls out the meta tag information and uses that as a key to grab the rest of the user's information (including name, age, city, state, etc).

America's 10 Best Cities To Live In & Which Ones Are Looking For PHP Developers
November 28, 2006 @ 09:03:00

As a follow up to this previous article on the Zend Developer Zone, Cal Evans has posted an updated list of the Top Ten cities for PHP developers (according to simplyhired.com).

The list is a cross-reference between the CNN/Money list of Top Ten places to live and the number of results from simplyhired. Of the top ten, Cary, North Carolina pulled in the most job posting numbers with 97 positions. Close behind it are two others in the 60s range - Ellicott City, Maryland (69) and Eden Prairie, Minnesota (62). The rest fall below the 30 position mark.

For more information on the cities, check out the CNN/Money site. For the job postings (and a great job search site) check out simplyhired.com.
