How to Submit a Talk to a Conference
January 03, 2014 @ 09:03:25

If you've ever thought about submitting a topic to speak at a technology conference, but never quite knew how to take those first steps, check out this advice from Beth Tucker Long. It's a list of steps and reminders to follow when thinking about your topics and submitting.

I've been on both sides of the proverbial conference table. I have been the one submitting proposals, hoping against hope that they will pick mine, and I have been on the selection committee, struggling to choose between hundreds of awesome proposals when you only have a few talk slots available. Through these varied experiences, I've learned a few things about what works and what doesn't when submitting a conference proposal.

Her list includes things like:

  • First and foremost, remember to hit spell-check
  • Have someone else read your submission
  • Identify a clear problem that the topic of your talk will help solve
  • Be honest about your topic
  • Share past feedback in the comments or notes section
  • Submit a lot of proposals

Wicket from the point of view of a PHP developer
July 15, 2010 @ 08:15:28

On his blog today Jani Hartikainen looks at his experience learning Wicket (a Java application framework) from the perspective of a PHP developer.

My starting point with Wicket was basically zero, at least Java-wise: I had never used any Java web app framework, so I didn't really know what to expect. Since as I said I've mostly used PHP and Python, I assumed the program flow would be something like in them. Of course, this was a completely wrong assumption.

He includes one specific example - handling a form submission. In PHP you work with the POSTed values and do something (insert into a database, email, etc) but with Wicket you really just display the form again - with a few other bits of configuration of course. You worry more about what's in the form instead of how to handle the results. He notes that it's a lot like working with a desktop application environment and recommends it as "an interesting way to do things".

Ask About PHP:
PHP and jQuery Submit a form without refreshing the page
June 09, 2010 @ 13:04:14

New on the Ask About PHP blog today there's a tutorial about using PHP and jQuery to submit a form without having to submit the entire page.

Lately, I've been chancing on quite a number of posts at various places asking about how to perform a web action without the webpage reloading/refreshing? For example, dynamically updating a list on a page without a reload or submitting a form to PHP without leaving the webpage the form sits on. I guess this is as good a time to start branching into some posts on PHP and Javascript, or more specifically, jQuery.

You can just download the code of you want to get started right away or you can follow along with the tutorial for code, flow diagrams and a full definition of how it all works.

7 Steps to better PEAR documentation
February 23, 2009 @ 11:11:55

Kevin van Zonneveld has posted seven steps that you can follow to help the documentation for your PEAR class come out better and be more useful in the end.

If you've written a PEAR package, it's probably a good idea to submit some end user documentation. Here's how to do it.

He explains what it is (XML in CVS, easily convertible with phpd) and how the process flows - save the current docs, add your own, build locally and submit to CVS. Here's his tips to help things go smoothly/turn out better:

  • Gather the prerequisites
  • Save current documentation
  • Try building the docs
  • Write your own XML docs
  • ReBuild peardoc
  • Commit your XML
  • (There is no seventh step - you're done!)

How to Submit a Conference Talk
October 24, 2008 @ 10:48:42

Thinking about trying your hand at submitting a talk to an upcoming PHP conference but aren't exactly sure where to get started? You might want to check out Lorna Mitchell's suggestions on some of the steps.

Speaking at conferences is a great way to share ideas and meet people - but actually getting the opportunity to do is a little more tricky and usually involves proposing a talk. [...] If you want to go to a conference, and there is a topic you'd like to share some thoughts on, then write them down and submit!

She talks about making the most of the submission form - submitting your abstract and including details why you and your talk should be selected for their conference. The comments include a few other suggestions like "don't submit the same one talk over and over", "try for something different" and remember that you always have something to contribute.

How to filter user submitted data easily in PHP?
August 15, 2008 @ 09:31:59

On his blog, Roshan Bhattarai shares a few tips on keeping your application safe by filtering user-submitted data.

Yesterday, I saw one of my friend was working on the the contact form and was filtering the user input data(posted variables) individually. He was using a function in PHP to filter the input and using tedious approach while calling the filtering function for each variables with coding each of them in single line . Today, I'm going to show you how can you filter the posted variables easily using callback function in PHP.

He shows how to create a filter_data function (for removing HTML embedded in the data) and how to implement it around your data. It could be extended pretty easily to do more than one filtering method to protect your information even more.
