Matthew Turland's Blog:
PHP, MySQL, and Oracle An Odd Triangle
April 10, 2008 @ 13:04:30

A little while back Matthew Turland posted an interesting item to has blog talking about what he calls the "odd triangle" of PHP, MySQL and Oracle.

In [an article from Maggie Nelson in a blog entry], she remarks on the article being MySQL-oriented and how limited MySQL explain plan support is compared to Oracle. I've had some thoughts in my head for a while that are related to these points, so I finally decided to, knock on wood, put pen to paper.

Matthew talks about things he agrees with (Oracle over MySQL when it comes to hierarchal data and set operators) and some of the things that can make Oracle, with all its power, fall by the wayside. This includes its licensing, the administration costs and some of the recent developments between Sun and MySQL.

International PHP Magzine:
Poll Question Which is the Most Powerful PHP Tool?
December 28, 2006 @ 14:36:00

The International PHP Magazine has posted the results of their latest poll this week. This time they asked visitors to the site which of the choices they considered the most powerful bit in PHP.

Options included VS.php, the mysql wrapper library, and the Crimson editor but only one cam out on top - the Smarty Template Engine. Following up with a close second was the response of "None" (meaning, I assume, that the person's choice wasn't on the list.

Be sure to head over and vote in this week's poll that asks which of the options is a major strength that the Symfony framework has over some of the competition.

Designed to enable, not overwhelm, Code Igniter is a powerful PHP/MySQL framework with a very small footprint, built for PHP coders who need a simple and elegant toolkit to create full-featured web applications.

They've released a beta (version 1.0) for public consumption, and it looks like it has promise. It has simplicity at its core, and makes it simple to build up useful apps quickly. Be sure to check out the videos of it in action...
