php[world] Conference Five Amazing Keynotes
August 21, 2014 @ 10:33:24

The php[architect] group has officially announced the five keynote speakers they'll be having at this year's php[world] conference conference.

We are excited to announce today the amazing keynote speakers that we have lined up for our php[world] conference this November. We've worked hard to find the best speakers and talks that cover the breadth of the PHP experience. We want php[world] to be a conference that pulls together all the different fragmented communities of PHP into one place to share ideas, and our keynotes reflect that mission.

The keynote speakers for this year come from a wide range of communities:

  • Luke Stokes: "Turning Your Code Into a Company: The Parts They Don't Tell You."
  • Angela Byron: "Drupal 8: A Story of Growing Up and Getting Off the Island"
  • Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire: "Idealism as code: From philosophy to empowerment"
  • Andrew Nacin: "Trust, Community, and Automatic Updates"

The final "keynote" is actually a panel of seven developers representing some of the major projects in the PHP ecosystem: WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Joomla!, Symfony, Laravel, and Zend Framework. You can find out more about these keynotes here or just check out the conference on the main conference site.

PHPMagazin:
Okay, so the cloud. But what's in it for me and my business.
November 13, 2013 @ 12:40:06

On the PHPMagazin.de site today, they've posted the video from this year's International PHP Conference of the panel discussion of "the cloud" and what's in it for businesses (note: original page is in German).

Who really needs the cloud? [...] Speaker Rainer Stropek (software architect at gmbh), Frank Muller (Canonical) and Glen Campbell (Rackspace) spoke on a keynote panel in Munich at the 2013 IPC about the cloud and its opportunities for business cases. It was less about basics, how to get the concepts of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS, or propaganda, like the eternal question of the data (un) reliability of the cloud, but much more about a sense of which business scenarios cloud are ready.

You can watch the full keynote video either through the in-page player or over on YouTube as well as several other interviews and videos from this year's IPC (2013).

NetTuts.com:
Round Table #1 Should Exceptions Ever be Used for Flow Control?
March 28, 2013 @ 10:20:39

On the NetTuts.com site today they've posted the transcript of a panel discussion they had with several developers about exceptions and whether or not they should be used for flow control.

I'm pleased to release our first ever round table, where we place a group of developers in a locked room (not really), and ask them to debate one another on a single topic. In this first entry, we discuss exceptions and flow control.

The opinions vary among the group as to what exceptions should be used for (even outside of the flow control topic). Opinions shared are things like:

  • Exceptions are situations in your code that you should never reach
  • Errors cause Failures and are propagated, via Exceptions.
  • So, essentially, exceptions are an "abstraction" purely to model the abnormality.
  • Personally, I envision exceptions more as "objections."
  • Exceptions like this should be caught at some point and transformed into a friendly message to the user.

There's lots more than this in the full discussion so head over and read it all - there's definitely some good points made.

FIG, FUD & FOMO
May 01, 2012 @ 14:01:25

On the Voices of the ElePHPant podcast, the latest episode has been released - FIG, PUD & FOMO, a discussion with members of the PHP Standards Group: Matthew Weier O'Phinney, Jeremy Lindblom and Paul Jones.

Cal's questions center around the Standards group and what kinds of discussions they have about the language and the progress the group has made so far (like PSR-0):

  • What's the purpose of the group?
  • Is the purpose of this group to take PHP from everyone's hands and enforce the "one true grace" on everyone?
  • Is the group fulfilling its purpose or is it wandering off the path?

Voices of the ElePHPant:
Sexism in Tech
March 27, 2012 @ 13:18:06

The Voices of the ElePHPant podcast has varied from it's usual interview style in this new episode - a panel discussion with several members of the PHP community, "Sexism in Tech".

Guests for this episode were Elizabeth Naramore, Laura Thompson, Anna Filina and Elizabeth Tucker Long. Cal and the panel discuss a few questions including:

  • Given the tech in a male dominated industry [...] why are women entitled to change a culture that doesn't want to be changed?
  • Does it make it okay if the material in question is generated by a woman if it objectifies women?
  • Does the Forbes article [on sexism in tech] carry more weight because it was written by a woman and do you agree?

Hugh Williams' Blog:
"PHP at Scale" panel discussion at the PHP UK Conference 2012
February 27, 2012 @ 14:05:45

Hugh Williams has a new post with his recap of the "PHP at Scale" panel from this year's PHP UK Conference.

The good news was that Rasmus and Nikolay couldn't see any reasons why PHP was particularly challenging. What we saw were general challenges in scaling applications to large traffic volumes - and that's pretty much where the panel discussion went. Here's a few key points from the discussion.

Highlighted points included: removing bottlenecks to help performance (simple in theory, hard in practice), the fact that PHP should never be the bottleneck, the "odd direction" of HipHop, challenges/growing pains in moving from startup to a large web property. There was also a less technical discussion about "scaling teams" and finding the right (motivated) people to do the job.

Build an Admin Panel with the Fuel PHP Framework
December 13, 2011 @ 10:09:47

Phil Sturgeon (an expert in all things related to the Fuel PHP framework) has written up a tutorial for NetTuts.com about creating a basic admin panel for your application based on the framework. This is the second part of a series looking at Fuel, building on the topics from the first.

In the first part of this series, we took a look at the basics of the FuelPHP framework. In this second-part, we'll be stepping it up a gear and move onto some more advanced topics! We'll be creating an admin panel for our application, cover the common uses of the ORM and use the Authentication package to restrict access.

He walks you through setting up Oil (the command-line tool that comes bundled with Fuel) and using it to create a new application. There's a few steps of configuration to connect to a database and setting up a few access groups (like "Banned", "Guests" and "Administrators"). Oil is used again to create users in the database and to auto-generate a lot of the controller/view code you'll need for the admin tool. He then gets into the more technical parts - updating the current code to be able to do things like using the ORM to fetch database results and being able to add comments to posts.
