Building a PHP Center of Expertise
Sep 11, 2008 @ 13:26:06

According to this recent post to the Ibuildings blog, the company is going to strike out and try something new - a "Center of Expertise" department as a part of their normal business operations.

This year we're going to do something similarly challenging, but completely different. We've grown from a development company into a PHP services company, and we managed to attract really smart and inspiring people from the PHP community. We've also been supporting user groups and organized conferences and seminars. We're about to take those activities to the next level. We are going to build a 'PHP Center of Expertise'.

Efforts the newly formed group will contribute to include open source projects, aiding user groups, developing training materials and developing professional services related to PHP. The idea is still in the planning stages so any feedback or comments you might have are welcome.

Introduction to Adobe Flex Builder for PHP Developers
Nov 08, 2006 @ 15:55:48

For PHP developers out there interested in harnessing the power of Adobe's Flex technology, Mike Potter has posted the perfect guide for you.

There's not that much to it, but what it does have is great - the step by step process you'll need to get started with all things Flex-y.

If you were listening to my talk last week at the Zend PHP Conference in San Jose, and were interested in Adobe Flex, here's how you can get started with Flex Builder and PHP.

The steps are pretty simple - download, install, watch a demo (FlexTV! woo!), and grab the PHP RIA SDK to make the interface happen. He also recommends getting involved with some of the Adobe-based resources that are out there, including the mailing list for the SDK and the Flex Developer Center.

PayPal Launches Integration Center & Version 4 of PHP SDK
Mar 28, 2006 @ 08:16:57

One of the more popular questions I see from budding e-commerce site owners is how to add a payment system to their site. They have the catalogs and shopping carts all set, but they're missing that key piece to handle the transaction. Paypal, one of the largest online payment handlers, has released a new resource to help make life easier - the PayPal Integration Center.

Along with this launch, they have also upgraded the PHP SDK they offer to a shiny, new version - 4.0. According to DynamicWebPages.de, they've added the ability to make a request without an SSL certifiicate, made installation easier, and more.

Their prefered method of installation has moved over to a PEAR-based setup, making it as easy as going to the source directory and calling "pear install package.xml". Of course, not everyone has access to the server their running on (shared hosting), so they provide another method just for them. It's still simple, but requires the inclusion of files on each execution.
