Chance Garcia's Blog:
Valuable Professional Reading
Aug 13, 2010 @ 08:14:39

As a part of the Dev Derby he's participating in, Chance Garcia has put together a list of books that he sees as beneficial to developers out there to hone their craft.

Our book selections are not limited to our respective Languages. I thought I would share my list with everyone. The first 2 (GoF design patterns and Patterns of enterprise application architecture) really just need to be in every developer's library. The rest are a collections of books I've read and liked as well as recommendations from developers I like and respect.

Books on his list include:

  • Patterns of enterprise application architecture
  • Building Scalable Web Sites
  • Mythical Man Month
  • Guide to PHP Security
  • Guide to Enterprise PHP Development

Danne Lundqvist's Blog:
PHP and Web Services - essential reading
Dec 03, 2009 @ 09:32:04

Danne Lundqvist has a quick new post with pointers to two articles that're good resources for getting you started with web services and PHP.

So after loads of googling I came to realise that even though 2010 is just around the corner there are still very few quality articles on PHP and web services/SOAP available. Most of the stuff I find is rubbish where people who don’t know nothing explain things they don’t understand.

He links to one article on the IBM developerWorks site looking at the styles of WSDL files and which methods could work best for your problems and information about WS02 and it's SOAP client functionality.

Richard Heyes' Blog:
Reading a specific line in a file
Apr 07, 2008 @ 12:56:08

Richard Heyes has thrown together some code for a simple thing that he's seen developers request over and over again - moving to/reading from a specific line in a file.

After reading something on the php-general list I decided that a) I'm bored, and b) I'll write something which handles it. So here it is.

His code is simple - looping through the lines of the file until it locates your desired target (with some error checking along the way). Plus, if it's already fetched, it keeps it in a cached array for future retrieval.
