SitePoint PHP Blog:
Becoming a PHP Professional Practical Teamwork
January 07, 2014 @ 13:35:12

In part four of his "Becoming a PHP Professional" post series Bruno Skvorc looks at the topic of "professional teamwork" , more so as it relates to a bit more practical things.

Last time, we discussed social aspects of teamwork, and how working in a team can both benefit and harm you. There's loads to take into consideration when working with other people, and lots to be gained. This time, let's talk about practical aspects of teamwork, particularly virtual teams or, in other words, teams with remote members.

He covers a three main topics (several that only relate to non-colocated teams):

  • Time Zone Difference and Broken Bottleneck in Teamwork
  • Organic Solutions (the importance of a technical lead and filter)
  • Inorganic solutions (technology to make life easier and remote workers more productive)

SitePoint PHP Blog:
Becoming a PHP Professional Social aspects of teamwork
December 17, 2013 @ 14:16:31

Bruno Skvorc has posted his latest article in his "Becoming a PHP Professional" series to the SitePoint PHP blog today. This time he talks about the social aspects of teamwork, a look at three things to consider to make working on a team easier regardless of the size.

This article will focus on social aspects of teamwork and initiative, and will serve as an introduction into a more concrete and practical teamwork based article coming soon. t's important to note that when I say teamwork, I don't only mean teams while working for a larger entity - a corporation or company in which you're a minor sub-group. A team is also a group of freelancers working together on a project - either close by, or remotely. Whenever you work with someone in any capacity whatsoever - that's a team. A loose team, but a team nonetheless.

He makes three suggestions that can help you figure out how to interact with people both in your immediate team and those outside of it:

  • Knowing your role
  • Giving respect to superiors (to a degree)
  • Don't be afraid to leave
What I'd like you to take away from this part is - don't be a slave of circumstance. Be courteous, professional and honest, but don't be afraid to leave a poisonous environment - it harms you, the people who love and support you, and finally, the project you're working on.

Dutch Web Alliance:
The definitive remote debug and unittest with PHPStorm guide part 3
December 11, 2013 @ 09:19:23

The Dutch Web Alliance has posted the latest part in their "remote debugging with PHPStorm" series (parts one & two are linked here) with part three. This time they focus on setting up Xdebug and configuring the connection in the IDE.

Let's start with probably the most important part of all: debugging your web applications. In this day and age, people still use var_dump() and die() to debug their application. A shame really, knowing that step-debugging through your code is made really easy with PHPStorm. Using var_dump() is very slow, error prone and you only get a small fraction of the context you need in order to debug correctly. And how many times did such a var_dump() hit your production environment?? Truth be told, implementing XDebug does need a little bit of work, but fortunately PHPStorm has made things super easy for us.

They don't go through the whole installation part of Xdebug - there's other guides for that - but do help you configure it correctly to work with a remote debugger in PHPStorm. They show you how to set various breakpoints and a "trick" to working with path mappings.

ZendDbSqlSelect - The Basics (Columns, Limit & Order)
July 02, 2013 @ 09:53:32

Matthew Setter has posted the third part of his series looking at the Zend Framework 2's DbSqlSelect component and its use. In this latest (and last) tutorial, he talks more specifically about columns, limiting and ordering.

Welcome to the third and last part in this series, introducing you to working with the ZendDbSqlSelect classes in Zend Framework 2. In part one we looked at building SQL Where clauses using the where related functions, predicates and closures, as well as compound queries. In part 2, we looked at all forms of SQL joins as well as a slightly more esoteric feature of SQL - UNIONS. Here, in part 3, in the words of Coldplay, we're going back to the start, and looking at the fundamentals.

He looks at three specific elements - the class constructor, the "limit" and "order" functions and the "Expression" class. He includes sample code showing how to create the class - one normally and one bound to a specific table. The next example shows how to define the columns to be selected using the "select" method. Finally, he shows the use of the "Expression" objects to perform SQL operations in the query (like "COUNT").

PHPMaster.com:
Localizing PHP Applications "The Right Way", Part 3
November 14, 2011 @ 08:38:48

PHPMaster.com has posted its third part of its "Localizing PHP Applications 'The Right Way'" series. In this third part you'll learn more about locales and message domain switching.

In Part 2 you gained more insight into using the gettext library by learning the most important functions of the extension. In this part you'll learn how to best use a fallback locale, switch between locales, and override the currently selected message domain.

They show you how to set up the directory structure to handle a fallback locale, a choice to use when the system can't determine which to use. By using a default, you also avoid having the system translate from the default language to...the default language (like "English" to "English"). Included are also the code bits you'll need to switch between locales (just using a different domain) and using the dgettext function to specify a different domain than the selected one.

Pro PHP Security / Preventing SQL Injection, Part 3
November 15, 2006 @ 15:01:08

PHPBuilder.com continues their look at preventing SQL injections in your PHP scripts with this new tutorial, the third part of the excerpts from the APress book Pro PHP Security.

They pick up where they left off last time with the creation of an abstraction layer for your application to act as a go-between and filter out possible bad data. They give examples of how to use it to secure a new application, use abstraction libraries like the PearDB functionality, and how to test your application's protection.

DevShed:
Creating the Admin Script for a PHP/MySQL Blogging System (Part 3)
October 17, 2006 @ 11:23:00

DevShed continues their look at the creation of a simple blogging script with part three of the series (part 1, part 2) - the creation of an admin utility to work with the contents of the blog.

The idea is to give the owner of the blog the ability to manage the blog by being able to remove users and articles as required, or to alter the status of users by upgrading them to admin status or banning them. It is also a place where the administrator can start new topics that will then garner their own replies.

They go through the creation of the main admin script (functionality managed with a switch statement, including other external PHP files) and the functions that go in each of those individual files to make things work - managing messages, managing users, and managing categories.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
The Joy of Regular Expressions [3]
September 27, 2006 @ 14:40:00

Harry Fuecks has gotten busy and posted the third part of his "Joy of Regular Expressions" series over on the SitePoint PHP Blog today.

Following on from the last part, this one is more of an intermission-a round up of regex syntax seen so far and a couple of links following feedback.

He looks at two different topics:

  • A "must reads" section of resources for getting the most out of regular expressions
  • A comprehensive "cheat sheet" with tips on expression delimiters, literals, pattern modifiers, character classes, quantifiers, assertions, sub-patterns, and working with the blackslash.

DevShed:
Client Management for a PHP Invoicing System
September 20, 2006 @ 16:26:38

DevShed continues their look at the creation of an invoicing system today with this new tutorial, "Client Management for a PHP Invoicing System", part 3.

What's an invoicing system that can't manage the data for the clients you're invoicing? This article, the third of four parts, shows how to make managing your clients easy. This part of the system allows you to view a full list of client names, and add, update or remove clients from your database.

They build on the foundations in part one and part two to now create a client management section of the tool. They give you the table structure they use and show you (including the code/interface) how to remove, update, and add new clients to the database.
