The easiest way to scrape details from a MySpace profile page with PHP
March 20, 2007 @ 10:41:00

From the WaxJelly blog today comes a handy bit of code for anyone out there looking to scrape details from just about any MySpace page out there (quick and easy).

It's amazing how just a little optimization on the part of myspace makes crawling their site so much easier. We're going to scrape the user detail (name, age, sex, etc..) from a profile, using the header info...

The script grabs the contents of the given URL, loops through, pulls out the meta tag information and uses that as a key to grab the rest of the user's information (including name, age, city, state, etc).

30 Minutes with Andrei Zmievski
August 30, 2006 @ 13:34:14

Continuing in his series of interviews from this year's OSCON, Cal Evans has posted this new interview he did with Andrei Zmievski.

This is another entry in the series of interviews I did at OSCON 2006. This time, I was privileged to sit down with Andrei Zmievski and talk about Unicode, Yahoo and other PHP topics. Andrei is a native of Uzbekistan and came to the US to study when he was 16 years old. He now works at Yahoo on their Infrastructure team and is pursuing a Master's degree in Linguistics.

They talk about Unicode for PHP6 (Andrei's big push), the status and some specifics of the project, his work wth Yahoo!, a look towards the future of PHP, and some of Andrei's personal background - including how he came to the PHP community.

Automating Amazon research with the Zend Framework
July 20, 2006 @ 11:40:32

On the SearchOpenSource.com site today, there's this new article combining two popular things together to make one powerful and productive tool using the Amazon web services and the Zend Framework.

Web frameworks have been all the rage lately, and for good reason. They eliminate a great deal of the mindless repetition involved in creating Web applications large and small.

Spurred on by the enormous success of Rails, PHP developers have been hard at work creating a number of framework solutions. Notable efforts include Cake, Symfony, and, more recently, the Zend Framework.

They start with the output of the scripts, two tables worth of data - a list of the sales rank and the details on a specific book. Then it's on to the good stuff - the creation of the controller to connect to Amazon, the views to output the data, and the method to make the request and populate the database.

Scott Mattocks' Blog:
Pro PHP-GTK Now Available
April 24, 2006 @ 12:40:51

PHP-GTK users can now rejoice (or even those that want to become PHP-GTK users)! According to Scott Mattocks (the author), the PHP-GTK book is now available.

Pro PHP-GTK is now available. Pro PHP-GTK was written to provide the reader with an understanding of the fundamentals of PHP-GTK. This approach empowers the user with the ability to create applications not by just copying and modifying the examples but by understanding what tools are available to solve a problem and how different pieces of the puzzle work together.

The book goes into the details of parent and child relationships, signals and events, layout, displaying and collecting different types of data and customizing the look and feel of an application.

Scott also includes links to a table of contents [pdf] for the book and a sample chapter for those wanting to try before you buy.
