The new funds will enable us to expand faster in emerging geographical markets, accelerate our product development and extend the services organization to meet the demands of our growing number of enterprise PHP customers.

He looks at it positively, noting that what's good for Zend is, ultimately, good for PHP - and this is very good for the company.

Updated design pattern collection
Jul 26, 2006 @ 05:46:52

Vlado (on Dikini.net) has updated his patterns pages with several more new methods, brining the total up to around 20 different types.

I guess I'm on the down form my design pattern tantrum hit. I updated the collection so it now has about 20 of them, not all can be considered "officially" design patterns, but to be honest I don't really care. I'm very well aware that I ignore the existance of boundaries between design patterns, idioms, techniques, etc.

The collection now includes:

  • Control abstraction
  • Coroutines (generator based)
  • Generator (iterator protocol based)
  • Nested scope
  • Partial Evaluation
...and many more.
