Mike Naberezny's Blog:
Request/Response or Bust
April 27, 2008 @ 06:47:16

In a response to these comments made by Paul Jones concerning the Prado framework, Mike Naberezny shares his thoughts on the framework, the "PHP way", and how the majority of site functionality out there can really be divided up pretty simply.

RADO is getting some new attention because it was completely revamped earlier this month. It's certainly matured considerably since the contest and is the most well-known component framework for PHP. However, in all that time since PRADO was first introduced, the idea of a component framework hasn't been adopted by the majority of PHP developers. Why is that?

Although PRADO is a nice piece of software, Paul surmises that a component model as used by Microsoft .NET (Visual Web Developer now free!) and its close cousin PRADO is not the "PHP way" or "PHP spirit". For the most part, I agree with this. Although, I don't think it's necessarily a PHP-specific issue. I think it speaks to a larger architectural decision - how far to abstract out the HTTP request/response paradigm.

He summarizes the functionality in three different methods of handling: "page/file based", "action based", and "component based". He also notes that the interesting fact is that the "page/file based" method seems to be so dominant in the PHP world, only emphasizing the fact that PHP is more of a "get it done" language than anything.

Zend Developer Zone:
A Review of "Scalable Internet Architectures"
September 08, 2006 @ 13:50:06

The Zend Developer Zone has posted a review of Theo Schlossnagle's book from the Developer's Library series "Scalable Internet Architectures".

I had the pleasure of meeting Theo Schlossnagle at OSCON 2006. He gave me 30 minutes to peek inside his brain and do an interview. 30 minutes just was not enough time. So when I received his latest book in the mail I was excited. Finally a chance to get more in-depth on some of the topics we covered. I've taken the time to collect my thoughts for you here so you can decide whether this book is a good one for you.

Cal talks about how he hated the book (from a reviewer's perspective, not a developer), the contents of the book, and his personal favorite section - "Distributed Databases are Easy, Just Read the Fine Print". His only critism is that the book seems to come across in a "demanding" tone (misunderstood by those that don't know Theo's style as just being matter of fact).

George Schlossnagle's Blog:
Scalable Internet Architectures
May 18, 2006 @ 05:41:51

George Schlossnagle has a quic note of congratulations to Theo Schlossnagle on his upcoming book release.

Theo has been working on a book for Sams, "Scalable Internet Architectures", covering the proper ways to ensure that your site and systems will be up to handling whatever load (and kinds of load) is thrown their way. It looks at the traditional ways of handling issues that come up as well as some new tricks for those on a smaller budget.

The book hasn't been released yet (July 2006), but you can preorder it now from your favorite retailer online.
