Ask Chris Is Back
Feb 27, 2006 @ 08:20:25

As noted in his latest blog entry, Chris Shiflett and the Pro::PHP podcast are again collaborating to bring the listening community more "Ask Chris" shows.

It's been a few months since Episode One, but thanks to Marcus, Ask Chris is back on the air. The format is a bit different - instead of doing separate shows, we'll be doing a short segment at the end of each interview.

This interview is with David Sklar of Ning. He and Marcus discuss Ning, of course, but David also provides some good perspective on the state of technology and how the definition of a programmer is becoming more and more inclusive.

This episode of Ask Chris is about email injection, a topic of growing concern for PHP developers.

You can find out more about this addition to the Pro::PHP lineup and how to subscribe to the podcast over on their site.

Marco Tabini's Blog:
Security-related bugs are good. No, really!
Feb 03, 2006 @ 06:36:09

In his latest entry, Marco Tabini talks about some of the security issues surrounding PHP that have been going around lately, and his take on the situation.

If you happen to keep a tab on the various posts in the community, you have undoubtedly noted a variety of opinions on the subject—I think that security doesn't belong in the language, Chris has made his point clear and Harry sort-of responded to both of us.

As a community, we are all tasked with ensuring that PHP becomes a better product. And by "community" I really mean everyone—individuals, OSS groups and commercial entities. I think that finally, after so many false starts, we are beginning to do a good job of it, too.

The post continues on, talking more about the ever-growing trend towards PHP5 and a push forward towards applications written with it with better security and less issues overall...

Pro PHP Podcast
Jan 19, 2006 @ 06:38:32

Chris Shiflett has this post today about the partnership between php|architect and the Pro PHP Podcast.

You've probably heard the good news about the Pro PHP Podcast. The guys behind the show (Marcus Whitney and Chris Cornutt) are joining forces with php|architect in what should be a good thing for all of us.

So, I was very happy to hear about the partnership with php|architect, because I know this will let Marcus focus on the show. There are also regular newscasts planned, and Chris is asking, What do you want out of your news?

Always good to see community support behind a project...and remember, the first show of this new partnership is happening January 27th, an interview with Andi Gutmans that will be broadcast live. Click here to sign up...

2005 Highlights
Jan 13, 2006 @ 06:45:52

Chris Shiflett has posted this new item on his blog today with his look back at his year in 2005 - both personal and community related.

In the tradition of my 2003 and 2004 highlights, I'm posting my personal highlights of 2005. As in years past, this is mainly for my own benefit. I hope everyone has a wonderful 2006.

Some of the more memorable things on his list include:

Overall, a great year...he also includes some of the things that he'd like to do in the next year as well (speak at fewer conferences, contribute more to open source, etc).

Security Blunders
Dec 21, 2005 @ 07:08:07

In his latest post today, John Cox takes a look at one of the latest posts from the SitePoint PHP blog - the Top 7 PHP Security Blunders.

This morning I read the Top 7 PHP Security Blunders which contained (at least in my mind) a few questionable comments about PHP security. Luckily for the early readers of the article, there was a very long comment by comments were a very nice critique of the article which also corrects a few obvious mistakes within the article itself.

The comments have now been pushed off the main article to the forum, (which is a shame) but as a developer, you would be doing yourself a disservice by not also taking the time to read the counter-point. They are insightful without being inflammatory.

The comments by Chris that he makes reference to can be found here in the SitePoint forums...
