Surviving a Plane Crash
April 23, 2009 @ 12:03:57

On the Ibuildings techPortal blog today there's a new article (a case study of sorts) on how to survive a plane crash. More specifically, a look at how the NU.nl news website handled the load as a result of the crash of a Turkish Airliner.

On February 25th, 2009, less than 90 days after the new infrastructure was rolled out, it was stress tested when a Turkish Airliner crashed at Schiphol. On that day the new site set a single day traffic record by serving up 21 million page views in a 24 hour time period, all without any noticeable slowdown and without having to bring additional hardware online to handle the additional load.

Their framework of choice, CodeIgniter, allowed then to create snippets of content - cached versions - that could be pulled and displayed without having to render them every single time. They looked into the Varnish project and a ATK-based CMS to piece it all back together.

IBuildings Blog:
ATK and Caching
April 08, 2008 @ 11:22:22

On the IBuildings blog today, Sandy Pleyte has posted a look at using the ATK framework and what kind of effect its own recently added caching system (atkCache) has on its performance.

Now there is a cache object (atkCache) available in the ATK SVN trunk. The new atkCache class is a factory class, which builds and returns instances of atkCache which has all the methods to communicate with an external cache to handle the actual storage and retrieval.

It supports lots of different backend caching methods - APC, eAccelerator, the Zend Platform functionality, memcache, xcache and both file and variable caching.

He includes an example of its use - creating an object to cache to a file, configuring it with options like lifetime and path, and an example of its use (to cache a theme for a web page).

Ivo Jansch's Blog:
My First Mashup
July 27, 2007 @ 07:56:00

Ivo Jansch has posted about a project he's started on to create his own "first mashup" of PHP, Flickr, Google Maps, the Zend Framework and ATK.

I have been inspired by Cal Evans' mashup experiment, which he did a presentation on at the Dutch PHP Conference last month. Also, I was annoyed with having to consult many different resources when I plan a business trip. So I began building frekfly, my own little mashup.

The post mentions two versions of the mashup - an initial version that pulled the services together and a second version that added in a web service for hotel information. This current version can be found at frekfly.com

Jorge Garifuna's Blog:
Build a Complete PHP Application in 3 Clicks
June 06, 2006 @ 17:10:02

Sometimes, just the idea of starting off a new project makes developers shy away from an idea. They think about everything they have to set up even before they get to the real work. Thankfully, there are solutions out there to help you get down to the real work real fast. For example, the ATK Code Generator, an application designed to simplify creation of an application to a few clicks. This new tutorial from Jorge Garifuna shows you how.

Developers can spend their time creating robust database schema and feed it to the ATK Code Generator to see instant web applications customized for the schema. Something that used to take months to create, has been cut to minutes and instant results.

He mentions specifically a three-step method to create an "application" around a database table. The user views the tables in the software, customizes the options for it, and clicks to have the ATK Code Generator build it out for them.

Also included in the post are links to the project's homepage, some documentation, and screenshots of the application at work.

Oracle Technology Network:
Building PHP Applications Using the ATK Framework
February 16, 2006 @ 15:54:43

On the Oracle Technology Network today, there's this new tutorial that covers the rapid creation of PHP applications with the help of the Achievo ATK PHP application framework.

In this article, you will learn the power of this combination by using the open source Achievo ATK PHP application framework to build a Web application on top of an existing Oracle database. Using the venerable scott schema as an example, you will see how to build a Web application with full CRUD (create, read, update, delete) support for managing employees and departments in just a few steps and in fewer than 100 lines of code.

The tutorial introduces the framework and leads you through how to get it all installed on your (Linux/Unix or Windows) system. From there, it's all code - creating the initial module, adding nodes to perform actions, and linking them together with relations in the data.
