Returning to Print!
October 16, 2013 @ 09:29:06

[php]architect magazine has made a big announcement today in response to one major request they've received - the magazine is once again available in a print version!

"Are you going to bring the magazine back to print?" It's the #1 question on everyone's minds. Since musketeers.me first acquired php[architect] at the beginning of 2013, it is the one question that we have constantly been asked. While digital publishing is the future, people still love the feeling of having a printed magazine in hand.

Knowing that our customers wanted it, we've worked hard to figure out a way that we could bring the magazine back to print again. We are extremely excited today to announce that starting with the November 2013 issue, php[architect] will once again be printed!

The print subscription will come in at $119 USD for a year's worth of magazines. They've also updated all current customers to a combined Digital level that includes all three major formats (PDF, ePub and Mobi). You can get more information about your current subscription level by logging in or, if you want to sign up now, check out the subscription information.

PHPMaster.com:
Create Digital Tickets with PHP and Apple Passbook
May 30, 2013 @ 09:11:36

On PHPMaster.com today there's a new tutorial showing you how to create digital tickets using PHP and the Apple Passbook service.

Why should we PHP warriors care at all about Apple's Passbook? Well first because Apple made this technology open (well, sort of…), second because it can be used outside iOS devices, and third because it involves a lot of well-known and loved technologies like JSON and RESTful APIs. I'd also add that it's a very interesting piece of technology, but that's my personal opinion. In this article I'll show you how I built a sample web application that creates and distributes passes in the form of a "PHPMaster Membership Card". It is not a full-featured product, but it's a nice base to build on for more serious real world uses.

He talks about the concept of a "pass" (a digitally signed document that can be easily distributed) and the types that the Apple service lets you make. His example (sample code here) is Silm based and Idorim & Paris for the data handling. He talks some about the certificate handling that's involved and the structure of the application including the certs, application code, templates and images. He then works through the code step-by-step and explains what each part does and how it connects with Apple's service to generate the pass.

php|tek is goin' digital
March 18, 2011 @ 12:34:55

In an interesting move to help make things easier (and better for the environment) for the attendees of their tek11 conference, the php|architect group is going with an "all digital" format for their conference materials this year.

Conference programs are easily misplaced, pamphlets are often discarded, and so on, and so forth. The end result is an enormous amount of waste - I'm pretty sure that, last year, we probably shipped, handled, and handed out at least 500lbs. of paper - and less value than everyone would like. This year, therefore, we have set out to "go digital" and limit our paper usage as much as possible. As part of this initiative, we are going to introduce a few changes

This year you'll get a USB key instead of the usual bag of handouts, a conference program available in a wide variety of formats and a mobile application you can use to find upcoming sessions and communicate with fellow conference attendees. You can find out more about the conference including the schedule and how to get your ticket on the tek111 website.

phpMyID (formerly myOpenID) Beta 0.3 Released
December 18, 2006 @ 18:47:00

The myOpenID project (which has taken on a new name - phpMyID) has released the latest version of the utility, beta v0.3.

phpMyID is a single user (though, if you were so inclined, you could easily turn it into a multi-user setup) IdP, or "Identity Provider" for the OpenID framework. It's a single PHP script with minimal dependancies. You don't need a database, you don't need to make your filesystem writable, you don't need to download any libraries, and you don't need to recompile PHP. Okay, well, you shouldn't need to do any of that.

You can get all of the details on the project and the latest downloads from their website including how to install and use the tool.

Understanding AJAX Digital Shortcut Available
August 04, 2006 @ 06:08:05

Joshua Eichorn mentions today about the "digital shortcut" created for his upcoming book "Understanding Ajax" from Prentice Hall.

A chapter from my book, Understanding AJAX has been made available as a digital shortcut. This chapter covers the different ways you can use the data you transfer using XMLHttpRequest.

Document centric approaches based on HTML and XML are described as well as various RPC approaches are shown.

The shortcut focuses on consuming data sent back in an XML or JSON format (and costs $9.99 USD). Joshua notes that he, personally, tends more towards "JSON based RPC approaches or HTML document based approaches" for his communication method. He also mentions client-side XSLT as an alternative to having to parse through and style the large amounts of data returned.

Zend Developer Zone:
L10N==Localization (See there are ten letters...Oh, you get it...OK)
June 09, 2006 @ 06:57:37

Internationalization and Localization are concepts that all web sites and applications will have to deal with at some point. Why not design it form the start? Most people just don't think about it but in an increasingly global society, you need to. The earlier you design for it, the easier it is to do.

They continue on in this post on the Zend Developer Zone with a resource to get you thinking - an Internationalization Primer from Johnathan Snook (as printed in Digital Web Magazine). He looks at the basics you'll need to know when putting in multi-language support, including database designs and precompiling.
