Getting Started With Laravel 4 - A Book Review
March 19, 2014 @ 12:52:57

On Medium.com there's a recent post reviewing the book "Getting Started with Laravel 4". In the review Christopher Pitt briefly covers both the good and bad parts of the book.

This book is aimed at newcomers to PHP development, and to Laravel 4 in particular. It doesn't disappoint. It starts slow, talking about the need for, and role filled by frameworks. It explains what Composer does, and why it's useful for frameworks like Laravel. It's not the typical "Laravel needs Composer, here's the code you use" stuff. There are 40 pages of what is essentially a very gentle introduction, before you even start writing code.

He talks about the sample application the book walks you through creating and some other topics around it including unit testing and artisan commands. He mentions the more popular Code Bright book and points out that he believes it (Code Bright) to be a better deal for the money if you're looking for the more comprehensive intro to Laravel.

Michelangelo van Dam:
There's no PHP user group here!
February 12, 2014 @ 10:27:28

Michelangelo van Dam has a new post to his site today talking about PHP user groups and some suggestions you can follow if you'd like to start one of your own in your local area.

When going to conferences you always hear "join a local user group, and if there's none in your area you're the person who needs to start one". But then what? Where do you get started? How do you organise a PHP user group? Basically, you're left in the dark and you're missing out of all the great stuff everyone else can enjoy.

He makes a few suggestions as far as sites and resources to use to help you promote your group (including Meetup.com and even LinkedIn). He offers some guidelines as far as what to do for your first meeting and a few other people and groups at your disposal to help promote and group your group.

Jason Grimes' Blog:
Using Doctrine 2 in Zend Framework 2
January 30, 2012 @ 10:02:36

Jason Grimes has posted a new tutorial to his blog about integrating Zend Framework 2 with Doctrine, the powerful (and popular) ORM tool for PHP. In his example, he shows how to use them to store the album information from Rob's tutorial.

Zend Framework 2 is getting close to release, and among the changes are new ways to handle dependency injection, and new ways to work with third-party code as modules. Rob "Akrabat" Allen has updated his iconic Getting Started with Zend Framework tutorial for ZF2, and it's a great place to start. After working through that tutorial, the next thing I wanted to do was figure out how to get the Doctrine 2 ORM up and running. This article shows how to set up and use Doctrine 2 in Zend Framework 2, by extending Rob's Getting Started tutorial to use Doctrine instead of Zend_Db.

Using Rob's example as a starting point, he shows how to install the Doctrine modules, update the "Album" model and controller to use Doctrine instead of Zend_Db and create the entity for the Albums.

November 26, 2009 @ 15:47:11

The Symfony blog has a new post with links to some books to help you work with the latest version of the framework - Symfony 1.3/1.4.

The symfony 1.3 and 1.4 final releases are just around the corner, and will probably be published next Monday. As you might have noticed, the symfony documentation have also been updated to take into account the changes made in those two new versions.

They mention the books "Getting Started with Symfony 1.3 & 1.4", the "Symfony 1.3 & 1.4 Reference Guide" and "Practical symfony 1.3 & 1.4". You can either read the contents of them online or you can order them directly from Amazon as a published book.

The new Getting Started tutorial
May 27, 2009 @ 10:21:09

On the symfony blog Fabien Potencier has posted about the new "getting started" tutorial that's been posted for the symfony 1.2 release of the framework.

This new tutorial aims to become the definitive place to find all information related to the symfony installation process. It describes in great details everything you need to know to install symfony correctly. The goal is to also provide a single resource for people wanting to try out the framework and avoid discouraging them with a bad installation experience.

You can find the new tutorial and a newly rewritten installation guide on the cleaned up symfony homepage.

Sebastian Bergmann's Blog:
Getting Started with Hamcrest
January 09, 2008 @ 10:23:00

Following up on the start of his port of the Hamcrest (a library of "matchers") functionality over to PHP, Sebastian Bergmann has posted the getting started guide to show you how to use it with the popular PHPUnit unit testing software.

There are a number of situations where matchers are invaluble, such as UI validation, or data filtering, but it is in the area of writing flexible tests that matchers are most commonly used.

His example that checks to see if one object is equal to another object. The Hamcrest matcher allows for a "assertThat" method making it easier to create and use pre-existing unit testing assertions.

He also includes a list of some of the most common matchers broken up into groups of core, logical, object, number and text.
