DPCRadio The Cake is a Lie
March 15, 2011 @ 13:17:41

On the Ibuildings techPortal today they've posted the latest episode of their recording series from last year's Dutch PHP Conference (DPCRadio) - Sebastian Bergmann's talk The Cake is a Lie.

Scaffolding, the meta-programming method of building software applications, promises easier development and a faster time-to-market. But the "code generation bliss" can lead to problems later on, for instance with regard to maintainability and scalability. This sessions takes a skeptical look at frameworks such as CakePHP and symfony.

You can listen in one of three handy ways - either by listening in-page, downloading the (rather large) mp3 or by subscribing to their feed to get this and other great techPortal content.

Paul Jones' Blog:
Running The Symfony 2 Benchmarks
February 22, 2010 @ 10:37:00

In responding to some of the benchmarks posted about the speed and performance of Symfony 2 and how they truly compare to some of the other frameworks out there, Paul Jones has shared his thoughts and process on using his benchmarking system to get some differing results.

Fabien Potencier released Symfony 2.0.0alpha1 last week, along with some benchmarks showing its performance. I am glad to see that Fabien used my benchmarking system and methodology, and am happy to see that he is paying attention to the performance of his framework. I take this as an acceptance on his part that my methodology is legitimate and valid, and that it has value when comparing framework responsiveness.

Paul points out that Fabien's reporting is a bit inaccurate and goes on to talk about how his numbers are off and what a more correct version of the benchmarks would look like. He takes the testing methodology that Fabien used in his process and reapplies it to his benchmarking process using clean Amazon EC2 instances and Siege to run some response/request testing on software running on each framework. Numbers are run for three different comparisons and results are found...but you'll have to read the rest of the post to find those out.

Matt Curry's Blog:
Programming CakePHP Apps with Komodo IDE
February 26, 2009 @ 10:27:16

For those Komodo users that are working with CakePHP and have thought "there has to be a better way", Matt Curry has created a screencast showing a few helpful hints on developing in popular IDE.

I suck at screencasts; I know this. If I keep doing them, I'm bound to get better, right? Is it possible to get worse at something the more you do it? Anyway, I made a quick screencast showing off some CakePHP features with Komodo IDE. Leave a comment with your favorite CakePHP related IDE trick.

He talks about the "automatic" auto-completion the IDE can do once its scanned the CakePHP source, how Komodo knows about properties in the classes as well as helpers and how to set up the Bake and Cake commands as shortcuts for quick access.

PHPWomen.org:
PHPWomen at PHPLondon
March 07, 2008 @ 09:37:00

Lorna Jane has posted a brief look back at this year's PHP London conference and the PHPWomen group's involvement there.

Leap Year Day, 29th February 2008, saw the annual London PHP Conference. PHPWomen were lucky enough to be able to get a stand at this conference to promote our organisation, and it was a great opportunity to get together and meet all the women that were able to be there.

She counted around 20 women at a conference of around 300 attendees (7% - not bad!) and notes that when attending a conference with a popular group, always bring enough t-shirts. There were even elePHPant and cake (no not the framework) sightings later in the day.

A big thankyou to all the helpers - it was wonderful to meet you all and I hope you enjoyed yourself as much as I did!

Wolfgang Drews' Blog:
More on PHP Logos
February 26, 2008 @ 08:17:00

Following up on Philip Olson's post about the evolution of PHP logos, Wolfgang Drews (of DynamicWebPages.de) has posted a few other examples.

Philip Olson has posted some kind of history of php-logos, so here are my two cents.

Included in his post are things like a 3D rendered example of a PHP booth, a few random ones he found that he had created for his site and the infamous PHP cake from the ten year birthday of the language.

CakePHP Framework Releases Version 1.0
May 08, 2006 @ 12:57:40

One of the more popular PHP frameworks out there, Cake, is cenebrating today. They've officially released verssion 1.0 of their powerful framework software.

We made it! 1.0 is here. The first officially stable version to be released by the Cake Software Foundation, includes all the features we had in .10 but with final bug fixes needed to make 1.0 fantastic. We hope you all enjoy 1.0 and don't be afraid to submit any bugs if you find them. We will do periodic bug fix releases and keep the 1.0 branch updated in SVN

To mark this auspicious day, you may remember the Collab-ontest that we had just after the last release. Well, we really appreciate everyone who made the effort to send ideas, designs, suggestions, etc. In the end, we went with the design submitted by Armando Sosa of http://www.nolimit-studio.com/. We felt this design matched the fifties style best and brings a fresh new image to CakePHP. So, far we have managed to build this into cakephp.org and the manual. The other sites will get updated soon as well.

Be sure to check out the release notes for more information on what's been updated and head on over to their Downloads section to grab this latest update!

Which is A Best One?
December 05, 2005 @ 06:51:45

On firman's blog today, there's a new post that asks the question "Which is A Best One?" when looking at PHP MVC frameworks.

So many open source projects MVC pattern in PHP, you can see the complete list of the projects at http://www.phpwact.org/php/mvc_frameworks. I just can say wow! then wondering which one i should be use? Some provide the basic framework, another provide more than MVC. Some projects are ported from another projects such as Struts, Ruby on Rails and so on, another brings their own concept for implementing the MVC pattern. I have no idea, which is a best one. Zend also participated on this "race".

He also talks briefly about other projects, including Mojavi, CAKE and WACT. But with all of the offerings out there, which is the best to use? Head over and voice your opinion now...
