Brian Moon's Blog:
Stop comparing stuff you don't understand
June 26, 2012 @ 09:09:19

In his latest post Brian Moon responds to another "PHP versus..." article from this site comparing it to Node.js and how it's less of a valid comparison and more of an "apples to oranges" comparison.

I normally don't do this. When I see someone write a blog post I don't agree with, I often just dismiss it and go on. But, this particular one caught my attention. It was titled PHP vs Node.js: Yet Another Versus.

He points out some of the problems with some of the arguments, specifically with some of the points made about Gearman, memcache, the PHP.net site and the creation of daemons in PHP.

Listen, I write code in PHP and JavaScript all day. I also use some Ruby, Lua and even dabble in C. I am not a language snob. Use what works for you. I do however take exception when people write about things they clearly have no idea about.

IBM developerWorks:
Understanding the Zend Framework (Parts 5 & 6)
August 23, 2006 @ 07:50:01

The IBM developerWorks site has continued on with its "Understanding the Zend Framework" series with spotlights on two new bits of functionality - creating PDFs and sending emails from inside the framework.

In this part of the series (part 5) they show how to:

  • create PDFs
  • use positioning in adding text, graphics, and shapes to the document
  • manage long blocks of text
  • stream out a dynamic PDF to the browser
  • add information to an existing PDF document

Part six picks up where the previous part left off and includes information on working with emails in the Zend Frameork. They look at the Zend_Mail component and, making some minor changes to the application they've been constructing (the feed reader). They create an email notification to the user when a feed has been updated.

Code examples and the source code for both of these sections are provided.

Joshua Eichorn's Blog:
Understanding AJAX Digital Shortcut Available
August 04, 2006 @ 06:08:05

Joshua Eichorn mentions today about the "digital shortcut" created for his upcoming book "Understanding Ajax" from Prentice Hall.

A chapter from my book, Understanding AJAX has been made available as a digital shortcut. This chapter covers the different ways you can use the data you transfer using XMLHttpRequest.

Document centric approaches based on HTML and XML are described as well as various RPC approaches are shown.

The shortcut focuses on consuming data sent back in an XML or JSON format (and costs $9.99 USD). Joshua notes that he, personally, tends more towards "JSON based RPC approaches or HTML document based approaches" for his communication method. He also mentions client-side XSLT as an alternative to having to parse through and style the large amounts of data returned.

IBM developerWorks:
Understanding the Zend Framework, Part 1 The basics
June 27, 2006 @ 08:43:41

IBM has posted the first part in a new series "Understanding the Zend Framework" today, focusing first on the basics of installing and coding a simple app.

We programmers are a paradoxically lazy lot. By that, I mean that we will spend hours, even days, creating something that allows us to complete a task in 30 seconds instead of five minutes. So perhaps the creation of the Zend Framework isn't much of a surprise. You mean you haven't heard of the Zend Framework? Don't worry -- you will.

This article gives you a high-level view of the Zend Framework, explaining its general concepts and preparing you for the rest of this "Understanding the Zend Framework" series, which goes into the details by chronicling the creation of a new online RSS/Atom feed reader. We won't do much coding in this article, but for the rest of the series, you should be familiar with PHP.

In part one, they take a broad overview of the following topics:

  • The modules that make up the framework
  • A summary (in the parts of the series) of the sample application they'll build
  • Setting up the Framework
  • A bit on the MVC pattern
  • Some general coding guidelines to follow to keep with the "style" of the Framework

Christopher Jones' Blog:
What Extending PHP Teaches
June 08, 2006 @ 05:44:54

Christopher Jones has a quick new comment over on his Oracle blog about the release and contents of Sara Goleman's book, Extending and Embedding PHP.

Like all good books, you should read this even if you never plan to follow the title. What you will gain from the text is a better understanding of PHP and knowledge about how a large program (PHP itself) has been designed and works. I'm reminded of Lions' Commentary on Unix (though Sara's book does not reproduce all the code of PHP!) because this is a ground breaking book.

It's always good to get a better idea of what's going on behind the scenes. Too many people just use PHP and think new versions just magically appear. In truth, there are a huge number of developers working on new features and fixing bugs to help make PHP, the language, a better place. And, thanks to Sara, the work those folks do gets a bit more recognition.
