Frequently Asked Questions About Laravel based APIs
Mar 15, 2018 @ 10:35:09

On the Pineco.de site there's a new post that answers some of the frequently asked questions they've heard about APIs in Laravel-based applications.

Developing APIs are getting more and more popular, but still, it’s a bit blurry field for many developers. We collected some common questions and tried to answer them in one place.

Their list of questions includes:

  • "What does RESTful mean?"
  • "How does API authentication work?"
  • "Why Laravel has a “web” and an “api ” middleware group?"
  • "How can I test my APIs?"

For each there's a brief summary of the issue and links to other sources (documentation and packages) to help answer or fix the issue.

Ed Finkler's Blog:
The MicroPHP Follow-up FAQ
Feb 08, 2012 @ 10:50:14

Following up from his (now infamous) MicroPHP manifesto, Ed Finkler has this new post to his blog answering some of the common questions he's gotten about his beliefs.

My previous post, The MicroPHP Manifesto, resulted in much excitement. In between fits of rage and crying, I found some time to answer folks questions, and also discuss the topic on the /dev/hell podcast with my cohost Chris Hartjes. To summarize and address some of the common questions, I felt I should write a small FAQ.

Questions asked so far include:

  • So you think full-stack frameworks suck?
  • You need a large framework to enforce best practices!
  • You should check out my microframework!
  • How do you choose what gets listed in the MicroPHP code collection?
  • Why do you hate Rush?

If you have a question you don't see listed, drop him a note and he'll add to the post with more answers.

Chris Jones' Blog:
New PHP Oracle FAQ Wiki
Apr 08, 2009 @ 12:05:05

Chris Jones has pointed out a new wiki page that's been set up as a more centralized resource for frequently asked questions about PHP and Oracle.

I've updated the old Oracle PHP FAQ and the Oracle PHP Troubleshooting FAQs that were hosted by Oracle Technology Network (OTN). We've redirected the old FAQ pages to a new wiki page: http://wiki.oracle.com/page/PHP+Oracle+FAQ with the updated content. Feel free to create an account and make updates. Hosting the FAQ on a wiki seems appropriate because PHP is open source and grows by the value of everyone's contributions.

Questions so far include some of the basics (connecting, querying, etc) and a few more complicated issues like pre-fetching, LOBS and new information for using the Zend Server to connect to your Oracle databases.

Paul Reinheimer's Blog:
20/20 6:40 (or Pecha Kucha)
Nov 06, 2008 @ 11:15:17

Paul Reinheimer has a new post to his blog today talking about a special event happening at this year's php|works conference - Pecha Kucha.

The format is a little bit different than a talk (thank god) and hopefully a lot more fun. Basically the presenter gets up there with twenty slides, each are going to be shown for exactly 20 seconds, for a total of six minutes forty seconds. No take backs, no do-overs, no boring slides full of code.

He tosses in a few FAQs for those interested (who can do it, what can it cover, etc) and who to contact to get yourself signed up - drop Elizabeth Naramore an email and let her know you're interested.

emPHPower FAQ
Jul 28, 2008 @ 13:48:29

Lukas Smith has written up the FAQ for the emPHPower movement and has posted about them on his blog:

Well unfortunately due to timing issues the emPHPower BoF at OSCON fell through. So it goes. In preparation for the BoF I have however taken the time to write down an FAQ. So the submission of the OSCON BoF was at least a kick in the butt for me to get this done. Please have a look and let me know if anything is unclear or unanswered.

The FAQ includes answers to lots of questions including:

  • How to I get involved?
  • What is the target audience?
  • Will emPHPower compete with existing community efforts?
  • What is the purpose of the membership fees?
  • Why should companies not be allowed to sponsor emPHPower directly?
  • Who decides on what emPHPower does?

Published PHP charset/encoding FAQ
Jun 02, 2008 @ 09:33:46

Kore Nordmann has published a new FAQ on some common questions he gets about character sets and content encoding.

After lots of questions recently on IRC about charsets and encodings, I decided to write up a FAQ about this. The FAQ can now be found in the article section of my website.

Questions answered include "What is the difference between unicode and UTF-8/UTF-16/...?" and "What does "multibyte charset/encoding" mean?" as well as topics like transliteration and character set support in PHP.

PHP 10.0 Blog:
Namespaces FAQ
Aug 20, 2007 @ 09:26:00

The PHP 10.0 Blog has the quick and dirty version posted today of the full namespaces readme that's been posted about the upcoming namespace support in PHP.

We now have an implementation of namespaces in PHP 6 HEAD, so here's a short FAQ about how they work for those that are too laz^H^H^Hbusy to read the whole README.namespaces.

It's an FAQ sort of list (quick questions and answers) with eleven questions that give an overview of what will be supported. This includes why they've been implemented, what some of the syntax is and looks like and how they can be used in files.

Also note namespaces are still work in progress, so it may happen it would be changed a lot when it’s released.

PEAR Blog:
Request for ideas: New developer FAQ
Jun 29, 2007 @ 10:22:00

The PEAR Blog has posted a request for ideas to help work up a new developer FAQ they can hand out to potential PEAR developers as a "jumpstart" guide to working with the package repository.

New developers need quite a time to familiarize themselves with the rules and conventions in PEAR. With the new role of mentors in PEAR2, they will have a contact person they can ask in that cases. But in many cases the same questions will get asked which will get boring for the mentoring developer, so we need a Mini-FAQ with a list of things the newbie should know.

They're looking for comments posted to the entry to help define this guide. So far, a suggested outline has been proposed by David Coallier for both general information and developer-specific details.
