Dutch PHP Conference Ticket Prices & Schedule Update
February 15, 2012 @ 11:49:31

According to this new post to the Dutch PHP Conference blog, the schedule and ticket prices for this year's event will be published next week (sometime between the 19th - 25th).

In our previous blogposts we announced that we would publish the schedule on 15th February. It seems however that this date was a bit too optimistic, and that we need a bit more time to get everything in order. So hang in there, the schedule will be published next week! If you want to be first in the know, make sure you follow @dpcon on twitter.

They've already posted the prices for the tickets though:

  • Tutorial Day: 350 Euro (Regular), 297,50 Euro (Early Bird)
  • Conference Days: 350 Euro (Regular), 297,50 Euro (Early Bird)
  • Full conference: 630 Euro (Regular), 535,50 Euro (Early Bird)

The Early Bird prices are only good from the start of registration until April 15th, so keep an eye out for their announcements about the opening of their registration. You can get more information about the conference from the event's website.

Juozas Kaziukenas' Blog:
Web scraping with PHP and XPath
February 18, 2009 @ 10:28:08

In this new post to his blog Juozas Kaziukenas takes a look at one method for getting the information out of a remote page - parsing it with PHP and XPath (assuming the page is correctly formatted).

When I was writing about how I use web scraping, I was still hadn't tried using Xpath (shame on me). [...] It turned out, that using Xpath is extremely easy, really. When you master it, you can do everything in seconds. Yes, you need to know how XML works and how to write correct Xpath queries (brief explanation of Xpath syntax is available at W3Schools), but hey - these topics are in 1st year of university.

He includes both some sample code (to fetch a titles and prices for cameras from bhphotovideo.com) and a link to a XPath checker you can use to ensure that your query is correctly formatted. It's good that he also includes a quick reminder about the ethical issue with web scraping - it could be considered stealing depending on where the information comes from and who is providing it.

Refactoring 2 Extract Method
January 12, 2009 @ 20:18:35

Sameer has posted the second part of his series looking at refactoring with a spotlight on the Extract method.

The 'Extract Method' is one of the most common refactorings you will ever do. It is also one you will frequently see implemented on the Refactor tool menu on various IDE's. What this method basically does is to take a group of related code and convert it to a function with a appropriate name that easily explains the purpose of the code.

He gives a code example - converting hotel room price to points based on the currency its requested in - both with and without the Extract method in use.
