Stop comparing stuff you don't understand
Jun 26, 2012 @ 10:09:19

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)
Aug 23, 2006 @ 08:50:01

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.

Understanding AJAX Digital Shortcut Available
Aug 04, 2006 @ 07:08:05

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.
