047: All About HTTP/2
Jun 21, 2016 @ 09:19:06

The PHP Roundtable podcast, hosted by PHP community member Sammy K Powers, has posted their latest episode: Episode #47: All About HTTP/2. This time Sammy is joined by guests Davey Shafik, Ben Ramsey and Junade Ali.

HTTP/1.1 will eventually be replaced by HTTP/2 so it's important for us PHP nerds to know all about the latest version of the HTTP protocol that's already running some of the internet's biggest websites. We discuss the things we need to know to start using HTTP/2 in our next PHP app.

We also go briefly off topic to discuss the status of PHP 7.1 and the ramsey/uuid lib.

You can catch this latest episode in a few different ways: either though either the in-page audio or video players or directly over on YouTube. If you enjoy the show, be sure to subscribe to their feed and follow them on Twitter for announcements when the latest episodes are released.

PHPWomen.org:
Book review: PHP Master
Jan 10, 2012 @ 08:19:03

On the PHPWomen blog today there's a new book review of SitePoint's latest major PHP publication - "PHP Master" (by Lorna Mitchell, Davey Shafik and Matthew Turland).

At 357 pages (375 including index), this book provides a thorough grounding in the key topics todays PHP developer should strive to know, and know well. The back cover ambitiously states that the book is "guaranteed to take your PHP skills to the next level". Keep reading to find out whether or not I agree.

She walks you through the contents of the book, noting that, despite her being an experienced developer, there were still things that she found new.

Despite the stated demographic, I think this book has a lot to offer novice developers. It would be a real challenge to properly digest and understand the wide range of topics covered, but an achievable and worthwhile one nonetheless. [...] If you’re still undecided, my advice is buy the book - you won’t regret it.
