Leonid Mamchenkov:
CakePHP 3, here we go again.
July 02, 2014 @ 13:18:55

In this new post Leonid Mamchenkov looks at the latest version of a PHP framework that's been around since the PHP4 days, CakePHP, and some of the improvements that will come with version three.

Currently, I am at the start of a couple of projects, which require a bit of the future support. CakePHP 2.x can handle the job now, but I'm looking more into the next 3-5 years. And that's why I'm looking at CakePHP 3, which is still in the early development stage, with an alpha release coming not too long from now (have a look at the CakePHP 3 roadmap document). Let's have a look at the high level goals for CakePHP 3.

Among the items he mentions are things like:

  • The adoption of broader PHP community standards
  • An increase in modularity
  • Developing for PHP 5.4+
  • Composer support (and using PSR-4 autoloading)
  • The removal of some more complex, brittle code in favor of simpler, easier to extend options

Check out the roadmap and migration guides for full information.

Anna Filina:
How to Motivate Your Developers
June 27, 2013 @ 10:16:51

Anna Filina has a quick new post to her site today with some helpful tips on how to motivate your developers (and coworkers) to make for the best end result.

When developers are not motivated, progress is slow and quality is low. This ultimately affects company revenues and can lead to reduced opportunities for all employees. Motivation leads in the opposite direction: wealth and happiness. The first thing to understand about motivation is that it's internal. We can't force someone to become motivated, but we can still have a strong influence. Here are my top three picks to increase motivation from my presentation at IPC 2013 in Berlin.

Her top three are:

  • Setting goals for the group and a purpose for making it good
  • Focus on the "small wins" sometimes to keep motivation high
  • Let developers use their full range of talents, don't force them into one niche

ThinkPHP Blog:
Study about relevance of business goals in PHP software architecture
May 28, 2010 @ 09:12:45

On the ThinkPHP blog there's a quick note about a study they've done on the relevance of business goals in the architecture of PHP applications.

PHP software developers and system integrators actually play an important role in running the world's largest web infrastructures. From Facebook, Gruner & Jahr, Kabel Deutschland and Lufthansa to a diversity of corporations, they all trust PHP and the respective systems built with it. It is not questionable that these systems provide a solid software architecture. The point of interest is how these architectures are aligned to the fast pace of changing business goals, which categories of business goals are considered during architecture creation and which means are utilised in projects.

The study (a 24-page study, in English) looks at some of the current strategies businesses are using in their application development, how to consider the right business goals and putting an emphasis on quality and capability of your organization. The study is free, but you'll need to register to get a copy emailed to you.

Zak Greant's Blog:
The eZ partner program (response to Seth Gottlieb's Commercial O/S business post)
September 06, 2006 @ 13:05:16

In this new post on Zak Greant's blog, he takes a look at some comments made about the eZ partner program he helped to develop and his responses to clear up some issues.

In a blog post yesterday, CMS expert and Optarian Seth Gottlieb wonders about the eZ partner program.

Gottlieb made comments about it seeming to be a good system, but not quite understanding how it would work when applied. Zak comes back with comments on the reasoning behind the program, how it works to benefit the partner, and how they see those partners, both in giving credit and their involvement with the projects.

For more information on the eZ partner program, check out this page on the eZ website.
