Upcoming Conference Appearances
April 10, 2006 @ 07:27:20

Wez Furlong, a popular speaker at PHP conferences on the topic of PDO, has posted some information about two upcoming conferences he'll be speaking at.

I'll be giving my "usual" PDO talk at both MySQL Users Conference 2006 and OSCON 2006 (the MySQLUC version of the talk will have a MySQL focus).

If you're interested in PDO and haven't had the opportunity to see me give this talk yet, please consider trying to get to one of these conferences. My talk covers the design decisions behind PDO, suggests some best practices for using it, highlights portability concerns (particularly because PHP programmers have been "dummied down" by the older mysql client library API) and more.

Wez is a very active member of the PHP community and has has been a large promoter (and coder) for the PDO project.

Oracle's PHP Developer of the year 2005
November 21, 2005 @ 05:49:21

Many congratulations go out to Wez Furlong for being awarded the "Oracle PHP Developer of the Year" award for 2005.

You may remember that Oracle Magazine were asking for nominations to honour people that have worked in some Oracle-related facility over the past year. Someone nominated me for the "PHP Developer of the year" category, and I "won" the award.

I'm normally a bit sceptical of awards because they're somewhat arbitrary and tend to be rather intangible, however, Oracle Magazine have gone the whole nine yards to counter that intangibility aspect. I suspect that I won the award as a result of my efforts in developing PDO, the PDO OCI driver and my role in the redesign of the oci8 extension.

He also mentions the work that Antony Dovgal has put in on the same extension as well. You can also check out the formal article on the topic...
