June 2015 Issue Released - APIs (and it's free!)
June 02, 2015 @ 13:48:38

php[architect] has a new post about the release of their latest issue (June 2015) - "APIs" - and how it's been made free for download.

That's right-thanks to Nexmo, June's issue on APIs is free of charge for the month! [...] The promise of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) is really bearing fruit in today's Web. Of course, we are not talking about internal APIs but of HTTP-based ones that allow us to interact with external systems-whether its saving or searching images in Flickr, getting weather conditions, or transcoding video. For many tasks, if you sign up to use the right APIs, you can build a fully functional application by writing PHP scripts which coordinate the workflow and communications between APIs.

This issue includes articles like:

  • "SPOIL Your Users with Great Helper Libraries" (Keith Casey)
  • "High-Performance PHP APIs" (Simone Di Maulo)
  • "Putting the Pieces Together: Building APIs with Aura (and Other) Libraries" (Ian Littman)
  • "The API Toolbox" (Tim Lytle)

If you've ever been interested to see what php[architect] is all about or want to find out more about making and working with great APIs, be sure to grab your free copy today!

May 04, 2015 @ 12:07:31

The May 2015 edition of php[architect] magazine has officially been released - "Hunting for Clues".

"Hunting for Clues" is the theme title for this month's issue. It focuses on automated testing and how it can help you hunt down bugs as they appear. In Michael Bodnarchuk's Codeception: Testing for Human Beings he talks about integrating automated testing in your workflow. Xander Guzman discusses two testing and mocking libraries for PHP in Integrating Mockery and Hamcrest into a Project, and Brad Bonkoski discusses leveraging Docker for Reusable Containers for Automated Testing.

Other articles include the continuation of the series for creating PHP extensions, manipulating images with Glide, Facebook's accessibility toolkit and Phpspec testing. You can pick up a copy (physical or digital) directly from the php[architect] site. They also provide one article for free if you'd like a sample of the magazine content.

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

Head over to the php[architect] website to pick up a (print or digital) copy of your own!

php[architect] magazine has just released their January 2015 issue - "Be The Boss". This issue includes articles talking about freelancing, the importance of communication in open source and the usual columns.

Functional Programming in PHP Release
September 08, 2014 @ 11:14:22

While not a mainstream practice in the PHP world, functional programming has been a topic that's popped up again and again over the years. If you've ever wondered what it's all about and how to get started with it in your applications, take a look at php[architect].

This book is for anyone that has an interest in functional programming or PHP as an advanced programming language. If you are curious or have never even heard of functional programming before then this is the gentle introductory text you have been looking for. Equally it serves those seeking to exploit the advanced functional concepts such as monads in a PHP context.

This book comes from some of the experience Simon has had with functional programming in the past (and taught about in presentations). It provides examples showing the techniques of functional programming applied in PHP including: map/reduce, currying and composition. The book can be purchased either directly from php[architect] or from Amazon (or Amazon.co.uk).
