php|architect:
It's not all about the code
March 10, 2010 @ 10:47:23

In a recent (quick) post to the php|architect site Koen Van Urk reminds us that it's not all about the code, there's planning to consider too.

Sure, it is important to have your code as bug free as possible, well documented and as optimized as possible. It is, however, impossible to achieve this all without prior planning. Good project coordination.

He suggests one of the most useful and reliable forms of planning and defining the requirements for an application - writing them down on a normal piece of paper. Then from there let the ideas flow with things like look and feel, mapping out page structure, etc. Website planning tools are good, but when it comes down to basic prototyping, sometimes there's just nothing better than a pencil and a few sheets of plain white paper.

Oracle OpenWorld 2008 Day 1 (Sunday) Wrap
September 22, 2008 @ 07:58:25

Chris Jones has posted a wrapup of day one at this year's OpenWorld happening in San Francisco. This first day included the hands-on PHP sessions open to anyone that wanted to come experience the combination of this powerful language and database firsthand.

The PHP Hands-On-Labs went smoothly today. What a pleasant feeling! There was great interest - all but two seats had been pre-booked for the first lab - and lots of studious work done.

He gives thanks to the people that helped out and mentions some issues they had with some of the PHP demonstrations there at the booth. He mentions Levi Dixon and Nicholas Tang's talk called Building and Deploying Web-Scale Social Networking Applications, Using PHP and Oracle Database coming Tuesday and a paper that might be useful to PHP developers using Oracle - Best Practices for Developing Performant Applications for Oracle Database 11g.

Terry Chay's Blog:
The Starship Zend-erprise
September 12, 2006 @ 07:16:35

Spurred on by a rejection notice he recieved from Zend for the upcoming Zend/PHP Conference & Expo, Terry Chay has written up some thoughts on the process he went through to make the submission and on one of Zend's key words these days - "enterprise".

Ahh, the standard rejection letter! But how I got it is anything but standard and that's what I want to muse about in this article.

He talks about a few of the small things that bothered him, like the lack of an online registration for the submission of talks and how difficult Zend seemed to make it:

In other words, my problem is with Zend, the girl in school who begs you to ask her out to the high school dance just so she can turn you down.

Terry then gets into the whole "enterprise" term that floats around Zend and how they seem to be relaying the message that, despite all indicators to the contrary, those that "hang out" with Zend will be the ones that make it.

There's tons more that Terry says in this great new post, so be sure to check it out and enjoy the read.

Sebastian Bergmann's Blog:
PHP Deployment Model
September 06, 2006 @ 06:33:20

In an effort to have a definitive resource to point to when people ask about PHP scaling, Sebastian Bergmann is asking for suggestions and information on the topic in his latest blog entry.

In "The J2EE guy still doesn't get PHP", Harry Fuecks suggests that PHP really needs [someone] to get together and write a detailed paper on how it works and why PHP scales so we can all live happily ever after.

I could not agree more.

Sebastian even notes that just recently, such a document would have come in very handy in a discussion. Unfortunately, he hasn't had the experience needed to make such a paper himself, so he's asking the community to help on the project and give suggestions/comments/offers of help in the comments of this blog posting.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
PHP / Web Application Integration
February 08, 2006 @ 07:09:17

Harry Feucks has a new post on the SitePoint PHP Blog today that talks about the integration of PHP applications - specifically some ideas put forward by a paper on the subject by one of the Gallery2 team.

Anyway, this is basically a short "research paper" written by one of the Gallery2 development team on how to do web application integration. In case you were wondering Gallery is a (perhaps the most) popular PHP image gallery application. Gallery2 is a complete re-write and was released last autumn.

Returning to integration, this is area which has yet to be well solved IMO, either in PHP or other web platforms. The basic requirement often stems from "How do I provide my sites visitors a single signon to my forum / wiki / blog / gallery etc.?"

He mentions a few key aspects of the integration, including "Master-Slave relationship and Communication", "Session management", "URL generation", "Controlling Access", and "Namespace Collisions". For each of these, though, he allows the paper to speak for itself. He also takes a brief look at the "where" of application integration - where the large majority of the work should happen to make the union work.
