April 2015 Issue Released - Front-End Polish
April 14, 2015 @ 11:05:47

php[architect] magazine has officially released their April 2015 edition - "Front-End Polish".

It's safe to say that a majority of PHP programmers prefer working on "back end" code. Many interesting problems live in that domain. But we can't forget that the front end-usually HTML, CSS, and JavaScript-is where users will interact with our applications. The joy or frustration they experience trying to get a task done affects their perception of how good (or poor) your solution is for a long time. Even if you don't want to be a front end designer or developer, you must be familiar with User Experience and the technologies used in the user interface (UI) to understand how people will use it, to help reduce sources of frustration, and to prevent errors.

Articles in this month's issue include:

  • Object Oriented JavaScript (Part the Second)
  • The Browser Capabilities Project in 2014
  • UX Without the Process
  • PHP Conference Newbies 101

August 2014 Issue Released - Beyond PHP
August 25, 2014 @ 12:46:00

The latest issue of the php[architect] magazine has officially been released - August 2014, Beyond PHP.

In an increasingly multi-hat career environment, most PHP Devs are often asked to knock out some front end development from time-to-time. This is not as unusual as you may think. Having learned coding in the home-baked-what-the-hell-are-we-doing-dot-com 1.0 world, we were often expected to do everything from cradle to grave. While duties are a lot more (and rightfully so) siloed between front and back end developers than in 1998, we are still expected to (at least) understand the different life-cycles of web development and design.

The articles in this month's issue include a wide range of topics including:

  • "MeteorJS - It's Not PHP But Darn It's Cool" (Alan Blount)
  • "Building a Plugin System with Composer" (Maarten Balliauw)
  • "A Modern Front End Through the Eyes of a PHP Developer" (Aurelio De Rosa)
  • "The Confident Coder: What Type Are You?" (Aaron Saray)

You can pick up a copy to call your own (either print or digital) directly from the php[architect] site. If you like the magazine, consider picking up a year subscription too!
