php|architect Site Relaunch
November 27, 2007 @ 13:45:00

In case you missed the news, the folks over at php|architect have redesigned their website to make it even easier for PHPers and customers to find what they want. Marco Tabini, publisher of the magazine has posted about it to his blog too:

As you may have noticed, php|architect has a new website to replace our five-year-old ball of code. This change has been almost eighteen months in the making, and one of the main reasons behind my general absenteeism from almost any form of non-necessary social activity during that period.

[...] Here, therefore, are a few observation on our new platform, its development and our strategy. Consider this the "how we did it" piece, with its "why we did it" companion to follow in a future post.

He talks about the work that was involved (over 3 million lines of code!) and how the development process had happened before. To correct the situation, he headed up an effort to rework the site, bringing it back to a more manageable state. He describes some of the pains he went through in the process (i.e. hating databases, thinking about Python instead of PHP) and the three components they eventually hammered out - a custom framework for the logic, a templating system for the frontend and a service-oriented architecture for the backend that would make expanding in the future much simpler.

So, since it's a special occasion and they want to pass their joy about the release on to their customers, you can get free shipping for a limited time on all of the books shipped to the U.S. or Canada (and special prices for international orders).
