Refactoring 2 Extract Method
January 12, 2009 @ 20:18:35

Sameer has posted the second part of his series looking at refactoring with a spotlight on the Extract method.

The 'Extract Method' is one of the most common refactorings you will ever do. It is also one you will frequently see implemented on the Refactor tool menu on various IDE's. What this method basically does is to take a group of related code and convert it to a function with a appropriate name that easily explains the purpose of the code.

He gives a code example - converting hotel room price to points based on the currency its requested in - both with and without the Extract method in use.

ZendCon '07 Contests (Slogans and Free Hotel Stays)
September 03, 2007 @ 12:13:00

The Zend Developer Zone has both announced a winner for their ZendCon commercial contest and posted another contest on their site today:

Now for our grand prize winner, a free ticket to ZendCon '07: Chris McKinney [with his slogan to end the commercial] 'a shiny badge with your name on it!'

The next contest follows in a similar theme, but this time the prize at stake is three free nights at the hotel where the conference is being held, the Hyatt Burlingame. Entering this contest is even easier than the last one - especially if you're already headed to the conference. All you have to do is register before September 12th - it's that easy!

Ivo Jansch's Blog:
My First Mashup
July 27, 2007 @ 07:56:00

Ivo Jansch has posted about a project he's started on to create his own "first mashup" of PHP, Flickr, Google Maps, the Zend Framework and ATK.

I have been inspired by Cal Evans' mashup experiment, which he did a presentation on at the Dutch PHP Conference last month. Also, I was annoyed with having to consult many different resources when I plan a business trip. So I began building frekfly, my own little mashup.

The post mentions two versions of the mashup - an initial version that pulled the services together and a second version that added in a web service for hotel information. This current version can be found at frekfly.com
