International PHP Magazine:
Poll Which is the Best Tip for Creating a Web Application in PHP?
March 07, 2007 @ 11:36:00

The International PHP Magazine has posted results from their latest poll conducted over this past week asking which, of their given options, is the best helpful hint for creating a web application in PHP.

Two of the options ranked higher than the rest with one (Page/object caching) coming out on top of the other (Don't save performance testing for the end of the project). The remainder of the votes were divided pretty evenly between the last three options: "Use multi result set queries to your database", "gzip compression", and "Tune your web server".

While you're in the polling mood, you should check out this week's new poll that wonders which of their options might be the biggest hindrance to PHP5's adoption in the community.

International PHP Magazine:
Poll Question Which One of the Following is Your Favorite PHP Game?
February 27, 2007 @ 10:58:00

The results from the latest poll the International PHP Magazine posted this past week are in. This time, they asked which of the options they gave was the visitor's most favorite PHP-based game.

Two options got the majority of the votes - 34.7 percent for Alien Assault Traders and the ever-popular catch all option "None". Other games that were included in the list were things like phpDiplomacy, Solar Empire, Star Trek Allegiance, and Solar Empire. The rest of these options all had around 5 percent or lower of the votes.

In their latest poll, though, they move back into the usual web development arena with the question "Which is the Best Tip for Creating a Web Application in PHP?". Options include using page/object caching and implementing gzip compression.

DevShed:
Reading, Writing and Creating Files in PHP
August 23, 2006 @ 08:59:30

DevShed has a new tutorial posted today with a look at one of the more common tasks performed with PHP (second to generating web pages, of course) - working with files. It can be a little tricky for a budding PHP programmer, but they've got the info you need to get started.

Reading and writing to files can be useful if you do not require the storing of important data, such as a web counter. I must warn you though, that this method of storage should not be used to store passwords and other critical information, as it is not safe. Here we will discuss how to handle files and directories in PHP, specifically, how to create, read and write them.

They start off with a look at file permissions on both Unix and Windows systems ot give you an idea of what problems they could cause. Then, it's on to the actual files themselves - for this part, though, they only look at reading them in and working with their contents.

Slashdot.org:
Book Review PHP Hacks
July 12, 2006 @ 12:18:35

Ever the fount of technical knowledge, Slashdot.org has posted this new book review covering the O'Reilly book "PHP Hacks" by Jack Herrington.

Given the current popularity of the Web development language PHP, it makes sense that newcomers to the language have a large number of introductory and reference volumes from which to choose. But for the more advanced PHP programmer, there are far fewer titles that explain how to make the most of the language, by applying it to solve relatively substantial problems. One such book is PHP Hacks: Tips & Tools for Creating Dynamic Websites.

They explore the contents of the book, noting that the bredth of topics covered is a bit more than they wanted to get into (and to check out the book's website for more). Overall, their review is good - the book does want it says and provides helpful and handy bits of code to help you just when you need it. There were a few technical issues they noticed, but, on the whole, it's a positive review.
