PHPMaster.com:
PHP Project Management
March 20, 2013 @ 15:18:41

On PHPMaster.com today there's a new post that takes a different approach to PHP development than some of their articles in the past. It comes at it from the project management side of things, talking more about how to run the project and less about the technology it involves.

Whether we like it or not, unless we are doing a hobby project just for our own amusement, even the most technical among us are really just project managers who can code. And, as a project manager, we can experience the heartbreak of project failure. [...] So what can you do as a technical project manager to minimize your chances of adding "leader of a failed project" to your resume? The answer is: pretty much what non-technical project leaders do.

He touches on a few key points that are important to any technology project, not just PHP ones - managing the expectations of the team and the business, using iterative processes and development and avoiding scope creep. He also drops in a bit about watching out for "weird stuff" that might be new or different to your group and their technology choices.

Philip Olson's Blog:
20 possible reasons why PHP function names and parameters are weird
May 29, 2007 @ 07:04:00

For your consideration today, Philip Olson has worked up a listing of twenty (humorous) possible reasons that the names of the PHP functions are weird.

Here are 20 possible reasons why PHP functions lack consistent names and parameters. Learning the definition for every PHP function is truly an amazing feat and I doubt this has been attempted or accomplished by anyone. At least, by any sane human. And references are named references because they are designed to be referenced, right?

Items on the list include:

  • PHP likes BC
  • PHP says all your namespace are belong to us
  • PHP function naming algorithm still remains a secret and cannot be cracked
  • PHP isn't designed to win a beauty contest

Mike Wallner's Blog:
Cookie Handling
May 22, 2006 @ 06:03:47

Mike Wallner is sharing a quick note in this new blog post about some "weirdance" he noticed while working with libcurl and cookies.

I had to implement some changes which are only in CVS for now. Beware that all this does not affect custom cookies set with HttpRequest::setCookies() and HttpRequest::addCookies(). Custom cookies can always be unset by calling HttpRequest::setCookies().

He's made these adjustments in the CVS for the library, and mentions an implementation of the cookiestore option with these new changes as well.
