DPCRadio: The Cake is a Lie
Mar 15, 2011 @ 13:17:41

On the Ibuildings techPortal today they've posted the latest episode of their recording series from last year's Dutch PHP Conference (DPCRadio) - Sebastian Bergmann's talk The Cake is a Lie.

Scaffolding, the meta-programming method of building software applications, promises easier development and a faster time-to-market. But the "code generation bliss" can lead to problems later on, for instance with regard to maintainability and scalability. This sessions takes a skeptical look at frameworks such as CakePHP and symfony.

You can listen in one of three handy ways - either by listening in-page, downloading the (rather large) mp3 or by subscribing to their feed to get this and other great techPortal content.

Sara Golemon's:
You're being lied to.

If you think you know what's going on behind the scenes when you're working with objects in PHP5 - you're wrong. You're even being lied to, according to Sara Golemon's latest entry:

If you're among the crowd who have migrated an OOP based application from PHP4 to PHP5, then I'm sure you've heard the expression "Objects are copied by reference by default in PHP5". Whoever told you that, was lying.

As she explains, the truth is more that they behave that way, not that they are actually like that. She talks about what objects actually are and how things are handled differently from PHP4 to PHP5. She also "lies" a little also about the "copying" part, and explains the internal structure of a variable to show why.

She also includes a bit on why referencing variables when it's not really a must is a bad idea - the main idea of it being a waste of space and memory in the application.
