Know Thy Conference - Know The EndPoint API Conference
August 05, 2014 @ 13:55:21

The 7PHP.com site has a new interview posted with Ivo Jansch about a conference this year that's not specifically targeted at PHP developers but is inclusive of them: EndPoint API Conference. The interview touches on topics such as the origin of the conference, what some of the goals are and some of Ivo's own background.

This conference is all about APIs. We use more and more smart devices in our daily lives and many of these devices communicate with the internet by ways of APIs. Once, the web was the dominant way of consuming content, but these days it's all about smart devices. Watches, Glasses, TVs - I can see a future where every device becomes smart and can run apps.

This means that web development is experiencing a major shift. Websites become clients too, just like other apps. This means developers need to start thinking more in client/server terms, and we think Endpoint can help developers do that as efficiently as possible.

Ivo also answers other questions about:

  • Where the motivation for the conference came from
  • What kind of attendance they're expecting
  • What kinds of opportunities it offers
  • Where it excels/lacks compared to other similar events
  • If it could be an inspiration for a user group to start up

Check out the full interview for answers to these and more questions about this new conference. You can also find out more about the conference itself on the event's website.

Rafael Dohms' Blog:
PHP Development in the Cloud by Ivo Jansch and Vito Chin
August 09, 2011 @ 13:52:24

Rafael Dohms has posted a review of a book from Ivo Jansch and Vito Chin - "PHP Development in the Cloud", a guide to some considerations about running PHP applications on cloud-based platforms.

Cloud computing is finally reaching a point of maturity and leaving its early "hype" years behind. Ivo and Vito do a very good job of bringing the topic into a PHP developer's world in a very concise and objective manner, without leaving important platforms and concepts behind.

He briefly mentions the book's contents, both the technical and infrastructure issues it addresses, and gives a general opinion on the book and recommends it:

The book was a very pleasant read, not thick and not too thin. It helped me greatly as I prepared to give a presentation on Cloud Computing, allowing me to see different points of view as well as compare other technologies i had not had time or chance to try.

Book Review PHP Development in the Cloud
May 26, 2011 @ 08:57:45

Michelangelo van Dam has posted a book review of one of the latest offerings from the php|architect presses, Ivo Jansch and Vito Chin's "PHP Development in the Cloud".

A couple of weeks ago, my dear friend Cal Evans asked me to review the book "PHP Development in the Cloud" written by "Ivo Jansch" and "Vito Chin". I accepted as I was very interesting in exploring more of the cloudy world I just found myself in the middle of. Another reason was that both authors were fellow co-workers at Ibuildings back in the day. I promised this would be an objective review seen through the eyes of a developer just started exploring the mystifying world of cloud solutions.

He briefly covers the focus of the book and how it makes the distinctions between platform types (PaaS, Sass, etc) to help clear a few things up. He liked that the book was written and organized well, but noted that some of the examples provided were hard to get working on the different platforms. He wished there was some sort of disclaimer that came with it that there'd be a learning curve on the examples that might require some additional work outside of the example to get started.

Vito Chin's Blog:
Book PHP Development in the Cloud
April 27, 2011 @ 12:29:26

Vito Chin has posted a quick mention of the book that he and Ivo Jansch wrote together about cloud computing and how PHP fits into the picture - PHP Development in the Cloud.

I had a conversation with Ivo at the Claddagh Ring of Hendon and we'd decided to write this book together. We wanted to clarify where cloud computing will intersect with the internet & the WWW; and parts of it that makes having a different term to describe the cloud necessary. We do so from a PHP perspective because it is the language for the web that we like the most.

Here's the book's summary:

Most developers gloss over when they hear "the cloud" as the term has been appropriated by marketing types and has very little true meaning anymore. In this book, Vito and Ivo strip bare the buzzwords and help PHP developers figure out what the cloud is actually about and how they can take advantage of what cloud computing has to offer. After reading this book, you will not only have a clear picture of what cloud computing is, but you'll also be able to utilize the various cloud services that are out there.

Zend Developer Zone:
ZendCon 2010 3 Questions with Ivo Jansch
October 05, 2010 @ 13:40:54

On the Zend Developer Zone there's another new post in their "Three Questions" series with speakers presenting at this year's Zend/PHP Conference - an interview with Ivo Jansch.

PHP is used all over the world and for all sorts of interesting projects. So it is no surprise that ZendCon pulls speakers from across the globe. One of the speakers coming to Santa Clara from afar is Ivo Jansch. [...] Since Ivo will be with us again this year for ZendCon, I thought I would catch up with him and ask him...3 Questions.

Topics included in the questions are things like the mobile+PHP work Ivo's doing at Egeniq, the state of PHP in larger companies (yes, sometimes it's just WordPress) and some of the things that they're focusing on in building their mobile applications in the future.

Ibuildings Blog:
Productivity in PHP from a fun perspective
February 12, 2010 @ 10:25:09

In a new post to the Ibuildings blog today Ivo Jansch has taken a look at the productivity that PHP allows developers (from a development perspective) and a case that he's come across that proves his point.

At the [Sogeti's Engineering World conference] there was a coding contest. Contestants could team up and had to write an application that found the shortest route through an arbitrary maze. [...] It wasn't until the second to last session during the conference that Juliette, Erik, Ian and Felix decided to not go see a talk but to attempt the contest.

The solution was presented to a largely non-PHP audience and benchmarked against some of the other entries created with other languages. The results were pretty amazing - while the PHP version didn't work through the problem the fastest, it did have a much shorter development time and lines of code.

Ibuildings Blog:
New white paper Introducing Service APIs
December 14, 2009 @ 12:09:49

Mentioned on the Ibuildings blog today is a new white paper (contact details required for download) from Ivo Jansch, the CTO of Ibuildings about creating service APIs for your web-based applications.

Every company starts with a single website or web application, but as a company's online presence grows, many different applications and sites are deployed. With a traditional approach of treating each of these applications as separate solutions, a number of problems occur [...] Service APIs can help you reuse a set of common functionality, which is implemented only once into the service layer. They can also help integrate third party applications in a consistent and robust way, and work around possible performance limitations.

The whitepaper covers the differences between the traditional development model and how the service model changes how you think about your backend. He covers implementation, development, documentation, testing methods and general maintenance down the line.

PHPClasses.org:
Book Review php|architect's Guide to Enterprise PHP Development
June 10, 2009 @ 12:53:20

PHPClasses.org has released a book review of the php|architect "Guide to Enterprise PHP Development" (Ivo Jansch) reviewed by Mauricio Garcia Nascimento.

Do not expect an advanced on PHP programming. As the author says, "this book is about PHP, but it is not about code" and "writing PHP code is only a part of the entire development life-cycle". It is definitely not about coding, neither about technical programming tricks. The book describes best practices, lessons learned, practical experiences, tools, techniques, methodologies and other related knowledge areas that all PHP professionals should follow to develop better enterprise software products.

Mauricio goes on to look at where the book fits in the development process and some of the specific chapters and what they offer to the Software Development Life Cycle process.

Despite it is difficult to focus the scope and the target public of the book writing about an area that encompasses too many topics of interest, Ivo Jansch, the author, did a great job to achieve this result with success.
