Cal Evans:
Signaling PHP
October 28, 2013 @ 09:21:42

Cal Evans has a new post to his site today about a book he's published covering a topic not really focused on in the PHP world - command-line usage. The book, "Signaling PHP" covers the use of the process control extension to handle command-line signals.

Most of the PHP I write these days is CLI scripts. I really wanted to be able to trap signals in some of my scripts. I struggled with this for a while; I even spent an entire weekend googling and reading only to find out that most of the information out there was either wrong, confusing, or incomplete. I decided that once I figured it out, I was going to put everything I learned together in one place to help others that were struggling with this topic as well.

The eBook is available for purchase and download now at a suggested price of only $5 USD. If you've been looking for a quick, concise guide to using process control in PHP, you should check it out.

Care and Feeding of Remote Developers (Webcast)
April 23, 2010 @ 08:06:11

As a part of this year's TEK-X webcast series, Cal Evans will be presenting today on a subject near and dear to his heart - working with (and correctly handling) remote developers for your projects. From the php|architect blog:

Come join us for this week's TEKĀ·X webcast as Cal Evans discusses the details of managing remote developers. Cal won't be speaking on why you should allow your developers to telecommute - he has done that already. For those who see the light, however, he will give practical advice on the tools and techniques to use when managing distributed teams.

The webcast will be happening today at 1pm (EDT) and there's still spots open, so if you want to get in on this great session, head over to the gotomeeting page and signup!

This was recorded while at php|tek in Chicago, before PHP 5.3 was released.

As always, there's the same three methods for getting this new episode - grab the mp3, listen in-page or subscribe to the RSS to get this and other great past/future episodes of PHP Abstract.
