Three Devs & A Maybe Podcast:
Functional Programming with Simon Holywell
July 23, 2014 @ 11:03:45

Three Devs & A Maybe podcast has released their latest episode today: Episode #35 - an interview with Simon Holywell. Simon is the author of an upcoming book about functional programming in PHP.

This week we are lucky to have Simon Holywell on the show to talk all things Functional Programming. Initially starting off with a concrete definition of Functional Programming, we move on to a brief history of the paradigm and immutability. Following this we explain recursion (and tail-recursion), along with closures and higher-order functions. From this base we are able to then talk about the different languages available to you which cater towards the functional mindset (i.e. Haskell). We then set our sights on the PHP language and what/wish it had to offer when exploring the functional paradigm. Finally, we mention his upcoming book, along with experiences presenting at user-group meet-ups.

Topics mentioned in this episode include:

So You Want to Accept Credit Cards Online?
June 14, 2012 @ 09:30:25

On NetTuts.com they're posted a new tutorial about using the Stripe service to accept credit cards on your site. Thanks to some handy libraries they provide, integration is a relatively simple process.

Until recently, accepting credit cards on a website was expensive and complicated. But that was before Stripe: a radically different and insanely awesome credit card processing company. Today, I'll show you how to start accepting cards in 30 minutes or less - without spending a dime.

They step you through the whole process you'll need to get the full flow set up:

  • Install an SSL Certificate (on your server)
  • Create an Account
  • Create Your Payment Form
  • Collect The Form Values
  • Request a Token
  • Create a Server-Side Script

Screenshots of the Stripe interface, HTML, Javascript and PHP code are all included - everything you need to make the simple card handling work. One of the keys to how Stripe deals with credit cards is that you provide it the card info, it gives you a token. Your app uses this to work with the card instead of storing the card information in your database (also making it more secure).

December 18, 2009 @ 08:15:56

New from NETTUTS.com today there's a new article listing out some of the tools of the trade, the frameworks that web development professionals use (and not just with PHP).

New web development frameworks, promising rapid development and easy deployment, are sprouting out at a more rapid pace than you can keep up. In the last article, we looked at the various factors you'd have to consider when deciding on a framework. Today, we are going to look at the various frameworks available for each facet of web development.

PHP tools that made the list include CakePHP, the Zend Framework, Kohana and Symfony. Frameworks from some of the other languages include ASP.NET, Ruby on Rails, jQuery and Blueprint.

Creating sortable lists with PHP and AJAX
February 24, 2006 @ 13:17:49

On phpRiot today, they've posted a new tutorial showing how to create sortable lists with Ajax and PHP.

You might have been in a situation before where you had a list of items in your database that needed to be output in a specific order. These items could be anything: perhaps a listing of your favourite movies or your favourite books. For whatever reason, you want them ordered in a custom way that can't be determined automatically (such as alphabetical).

This article covers the implementation of a system that lets you easily define the order of such a list.

They use the example of a movie listing to fill out the data items. They show you both sides of the setup - using Prototype and Scriptaculous to create effects/handle the Ajax, PHP to interface with the database, and a little CSS to make it all look nice. The end result is a list that saves its status from page load to page load, and can be modified just a simple click and drag.
