ZendCon 2012 Call for Creativity
July 03, 2012 @ 12:22:54

On Zend's DevZone site there's a new post about the Call for Creativity for this year's ZendCon PHP conference:

If you, or someone you know with connections to the developer community at large, have something to show, we would love to hear so we can showcase at this year's ZendCon. We are looking for music, digital artwork or video media submissions (including fun videos) which will be played or displayed at various places around the conference, with attribution, of course. Physical media submissions are also welcome though we will be limiting that to local artists.

They include some of the guidelines for submitting your work (with an obvious preference on digital media) including the formatting and what sort of topics it should be relevant to. Prizes will be offered to the winners - a spotlight in a ZendCon newsletter and press releases as well as exposure via each category on Zend's social media properties.

If you'd like to send in your submission, you can use the form on this page and link to the media you've created.

Michael Kimsal's Blog:
Suggested steps for launching a new web project
January 20, 2009 @ 10:22:33

If you're looking to start up that next great PHP project and want a little guidance on how to get the ball rolling, you should check out these helpful hints from Michael Kimsal for launching a new web project.

My background is *not* marketing, specifically, although I've been involved in a number of web projects' launches or relaunches over the last 13 years. Having said that, I've found myself giving similar advice repeatedly, so I thought I'd recap some of that here.

A lot of the suggestions have to do with networking and social media - setting up a twitter account, adding a blog even if the site's not done, gathering emails of those interested - as well as the typical search for feedback and picking the time to launch (even if its not all ready).

The Ultimate Media Server - Apache+SSL , PHP, MySQL and Jinzora
February 08, 2006 @ 07:02:10 has posted a new tutorial on the installation of the "ultimate meadia server" for personal use - built off of an Apacle+SSL, PHP, MySQL, and Jinzora base.

This guide will lead you through creating a secure ssl based webserver to be able to stream your multimedia across the World Wide Web. Before embarking on this journey I would highly recommend reading this documentation in it's fullest before executing any of it. You may find some pointers in the tips and tweaks section that you can make during installation that would make this install even easier and make it a one time install.

There are a few requirements they mention, but once that's all arranged, it's a pretty simple setup overall. It uses the Jinzora software to provide the media streaming/management component of the setup...
