PHP Best Practices at ApacheCon
November 01, 2007 @ 10:06:00

Laura Thomson points out that she and Luke Welling will be presenting their "PHP Best Practices" talk at the upcoming ApacheCon (in Atlanta, Georgia starting November 12th).

This is a half day tutorial which we try to tailor to what people want to hear about on the day. We'll get into the nitty gritty of writing clean, fast, secure code.

Registration for this year's event is still open and there'll be other PHP-related talks including Christian Wenz's look at web services and Chris Shiflett's "Writing Secure Web Applications with PHP".

JApacheCon Wrapup
December 16, 2005 @ 06:52:38

Chris Shiflett has his own wrapup posted today for the ApacheCon 2005 conference that just finished.

Despite the heavy emphasis on Java at this year's ApacheCon, I still enjoyed the conference and learned a lot.

I got to see Rasmus Lerdorf's talk, and you can also view his slides online: Large-Scale PHP. Rasmus actually covered many topics, including Ajax, Flickr, and Yahoo Maps. It felt like he was just having fun and talking about the cool things he's been playing with recently. You can see more of his toys on his toys page, which is the closest thing he has to a blog.

He also mentions some of the other "standard presenters" and their presentations, like:

ApacheCon Review and Slides
December 16, 2005 @ 06:47:37

In this latest post on Adam Trachtenburg's blog today, he talks about the (just ended) ApacheCon and mentions his slides along the way.

I got back from jApacheCon last night. I like the show, but the ASF has certainly shifted over the years from programs written in C (httpd, mod_perl, PHP) to programs written in Java (Ant, Axis, Beehive, Cocoon, Geronimo, Jakarta, Struts, etc.). This has caused the show to have an increasingly large amount of Java content.

This has caused the PHP crowd to dub ApacheCon with new names. Chris prefers JApacheCon; Andrei likes JAvacheCon; I want either ApacheCon4J or jApacheCon. However, Day 3 was a nice mix of PHP, Ruby, and Michael's httpd talks.

His talk, "Consuming Web Services Using PHP 5" and was well recieved by the conference-goers. It looks briefly at REST and SOAP, with a few demos of each and a progression on the SOAP side ending up with his eBay Motors Google Maps mashup. You can get the slides here (PDF).

JApacheCon (Power PHP Testing talk)
December 14, 2005 @ 06:47:54

On Chris Shiflett's blog today, there's his update from this year's ApacheCon (or, as he calls it, "JApacheCon" for all the Java that's "infested it"). The post talks about his and Geoff Young's tutorial - Power PHP Testing.

On Sunday, Geoff Young and I gave our tutorial, Power PHP Testing, which went really well. Most of the attendees had PHP experience and no testing experience, so it was a perfect fit.

We covered testing theory as well as some practical examples using phpt, Simple-Test, PHPUnit, and (of course) Apache-Test. We have tarballs for each framework that provide everything you need (I'll link to these in another post), including a Makefile so that make test runs your test suite.

In the talk, they tried to make each framework "shine", pointing out the highlights of each as a standalone method - not in comparison to the others. He also mentions how each was presented and what the largest difference between them is...

PHP Testing Tutorial at ApacheCon
November 16, 2005 @ 05:32:45

On Chris Shiflett's blog today, there's a new post about a talk with will (hopefully) be given at this year's ApacheCon by Chris and Geoff Young - a PHP testing tutorial.

Admit it - deep down inside, you know you should be testing your PHP applications. With all of the different PHP test environments and the daunting documentation, sometimes it is difficult to know where to start. This tutorial will help. The first step in testing is deciding what to test, so we will begin by offering a very simple (but not contrived) PHP application with identifying elements that lend themselves to testing - both unit tests and functional tests. Next, we will write some real tests using several of the existing PHP testing frameworks, including PHPUnit, Simple Test, phpt, and Apache-Test.

Chris also mentions some of the packages that are out there to perform the testing with - from the ever-popular PHPUnit to Apache-Test and plenty of documentation in between...
