Paul Jones' Blog:
Forty Percent!
September 11, 2009 @ 08:16:10

Fans of the Solar PHP framework will be happy to know that Paul Jones, a lead developer on the project, has gotten approval to spend forty percent of his (day job) time on the project!

My employer, OmniTI, is allowing me to spend a minimum of 40% of my paid work time on the Solar Framework for PHP 5 (plus additional time as duty allows). The project remains open-source under New BSD license.

The Solar framework is a PHP 5 framework for web application development. It is fully name-spaced and uses enterprise application design patterns, with built-in support for localization and configuration at all levels.

OmniTI Turns Ten
September 27, 2007 @ 10:28:00

Many congratulations go out to OmniTI on the celebration of their tenth birthday. As Chris Shiflett puts it:

Earlier this month (on the 4th, to be exact), OmniTI celebrated its 10th birthday. From humble beginnings in Theo's basement to a company of almost 50 employees, things have certainly changed.

Theo Schlossnagle also has his own post about the occasion, remembering the company's origins and what it has become:

On September 4th 1997, Sherry (my mother) and I incorporated OmniTI, Inc. and started doing business. So, naturally, on September 4th this year, clan OmniTI went to a local bar and celebrated being in business for ten years. I didn't prepare a speech, I didn't give a pep-talk; instead, I decided that day was for me. I sat back and looked on with tremendous pride at OmniTI. What is OmniTI? OmniTI is its people and their sacrifices.

OmniTI employs several web known PHPers including Chris Shiflett, Laura Thomson and Wez Furlong.

Zend Developer Zone:
ZendCon Unconference Chairperson for 2007 Is...
August 09, 2007 @ 21:34:00

As mentioned in a new post on the Zend Developer Zone today, a new feature to the Zend/PHP Conference & Expo this year will be the option for participants to enjoy the unconference atmosphere. To make sure things are running smoothly with these talks, they've appointed Patrick Reilly to try to keep things in line.

This year we are trying something new at ZendCon, we are providing Unconference space for attendees to create their own sessions. To help facilitate this, we have asked someone to be the Unconference Chairperson. This person won't be in charge of setting the agenda or approving sessions, the attendees will do that. This person will be the coordinator, the facilitator, the person in charge.

Cal did a short interview with Patrick about the role he'll be playing and his own message to those attendees that might want to participate.

Edin Kadribasic's Blog:
New Windows Snaps/Release Builder
March 20, 2007 @ 08:18:00

Edin Kadribasic shares some great news on his blog this morning those using the PHP Windows builds will be happy to hear.

During my time at Emini I was using an old beat up machine to build PHP snapshots for Windows. It was only a Pentium II 400MHz and compiling a PHP snapshot on that machine took more than an hour. After leaving Emini I needed to find a new box for compiling PHP snapshots and PECL extensions for the Windows platform.

The light at the end of the tunnel came when Wez Furlong reminded him about a box OmniTI had that could handle just that. Now, what used to take over an hour to run takes around six minutes (a full compile of the latest snapshot with all of the extensions, including checkout and upload of the Win32 snapshot).

Zend Developer Zone:
30 Minutes with Theo Schlossnagle
September 25, 2006 @ 08:03:20

On the Zend Developer Zone today, Cal Evans has another of his interviews with the speakers at various PHP conferences, this time, it's with Theo Schlossnagle of OmniTi.

This is another in a series of interviews I've been conducting as I travel to different conferences. Most of the people I get the chance to interview are directly involved with PHP in some way. This interview is a bit different. Theo Schlossnagle is the founder of OmniTI, one of the premier PHP consulting companies in the world. OmniTI consults with companies all around the globe on issues ranging from architecture to security.

Cal asks questions about the background of OmniTI, how they find/retain programmers, Messaging Systems, Theo's book, scaling in general, and some of his thoughts on what PHP still has to overcome.
