August 2014 Issue Released - Beyond PHP
August 25, 2014 @ 12:46:00

The latest issue of the php[architect] magazine has officially been released - August 2014, Beyond PHP.

In an increasingly multi-hat career environment, most PHP Devs are often asked to knock out some front end development from time-to-time. This is not as unusual as you may think. Having learned coding in the home-baked-what-the-hell-are-we-doing-dot-com 1.0 world, we were often expected to do everything from cradle to grave. While duties are a lot more (and rightfully so) siloed between front and back end developers than in 1998, we are still expected to (at least) understand the different life-cycles of web development and design.

The articles in this month's issue include a wide range of topics including:

  • "MeteorJS - It's Not PHP But Darn It's Cool" (Alan Blount)
  • "Building a Plugin System with Composer" (Maarten Balliauw)
  • "A Modern Front End Through the Eyes of a PHP Developer" (Aurelio De Rosa)
  • "The Confident Coder: What Type Are You?" (Aaron Saray)

You can pick up a copy to call your own (either print or digital) directly from the php[architect] site. If you like the magazine, consider picking up a year subscription too!

February 2014 Issue Released - Databases
February 20, 2014 @ 11:37:32

The PHP-centric magazine php[architect] has released their latest edition, the February 2014 issue "Databases".

Before I got into coding I had no concept of what a database was, except that it was a place to store "data." After reading about "tables" and "relations" I could visualize it better. Later, after working with databases for a few years, I can totally grok it. For years, relational databases were king. Now, it seems that non - relational databases are all the rage. Really, though, it's like any other tool - you pick the one that suits the situation best.

In this month's edition articles include:

  • SQL to NoSQL Migration
  • I18n by Translation Proxy
  • The Confident Coder: Attention to Detail
  • Laravel Tips: Rapid Coding and Prototyping Through Generators

...and of course editorials from staff members Eli White and Beth Long Tucker. You can pick up a single copy (in PDF or print) of this issue from the php[architect] site or grab a full year's subscription.

Lorna Mitchell:
GitHub-Powered Changelog Scripts
January 28, 2014 @ 09:29:20

In her latest post Lorna Mitchell has shared some scripts she uses to automate the creation of a changelog based on the GitHub issue comments and fixes.

My current project does periodic releases, we build a few things, then we work on getting a bunch of user feedback and changing/fixing things before we actually release. [...] When a branch merges in to the main line, we use the "fixes #42" notation to simultaneously close off the issue that it relates to. This has been working pretty well, and today I got the question "what's new since I last saw this project?" - so I created a changelog. It's rather rough-and-ready but I had fun so I thought I'd share.

The script operates off of a local git cloned version of the repository and grabs all commit messages with the tern "fixes" in it. The script then takes the log file, matches the issue ID and then makes a cur call out to the GitHub API to get that issue's description. This is then taken, formatted and dropped into the output.
