PHP enters top 3 of most popular programming languages
September 21, 2009 @ 07:57:26

On the IBuildings bog today Ivo Jansch looks at a new step in PHP's evolution - its jump up into the top three on the TIOBE programming index (language popularity):

In their latest analysis PHP has entered the top 3 of most popular programming languages, and that is something that both makes us proud and provides further proof that PHP is still growing and here to stay. [...] What makes PHP's number 3 position remarkable is that the numbers 1 and 2 are very much general purpose languages. Java and C are pretty much used from anywhere from low level processes to desktop applications.

Some of the other languages in their top ten (according to their indexing tools) include Perl, Python, Ruby and Javascript.

PHP Competition Results - Second Place (Evan Chui)
July 20, 2007 @ 09:36:00

Second place has been revealed in Nick Halstead's programming competition - and the 2nd place mark goes to Evan Chiu.

So second place, more drum rolls.. goes to Evan Chiu. Evan's solution revolved around a well implemented breadth first search which was wrapped up in a neat class. It was also quite well presented and the HTML was all w3c compliant.

In Evan's solution, he opted for a single "solve" method to handle the heart of the transition - an implementation of the "Breadth First Search method. If you'd like to see the full code, you can check it out here.

PHP Competition Results - Third Place (Karol Grecki)
July 19, 2007 @ 08:07:00

As previously mentioned, Nick Halstead will be revealing the top three places in the results from the programming competition he was hosting. Today starts the top three list with third place - an entry from Karol Grecki:

I was really impressed with Karol's entry and if it was not for the fact that it did not 'run out of the box' it would have been a close cut thing to be the winner. The fact is that because it was a pain to get running the two other judges only gave it 1 point each.

PHP Remains at 4th in TIOBE Programming Community
May 08, 2007 @ 13:22:21

As mentioned by the International PHP Magazine, PHP has held strong at its fourth place ranking on the TIOBE Programming Community Index for the month of May.

The TIOBE Programming Community index gives an indication of the popularity of programming languages. The index is updated once a month. The ratings are based on the world-wide availability of skilled engineers, courses and third party vendors. The popular search engines Google, MSN, and Yahoo! are used to calculate the ratings. Observe that the TIOBE index is not about the best programming language or the language in which most lines of code have been written.

PHP kept its ranking right alongside other popular languages like C++, Java and Perl to remain in the top five of the list. Their graph still shows a downward trend for the presence of PHP on the web, but it's the same trend that can be seen affecting several other languages as well.

Creating a SECURE file manager with PHP
January 26, 2006 @ 06:59:09

In a follow-up to the previous post on the creation of a file manager with PHP, a new piece has shown up, augmenting it with the promise of a secure file manager created in PHP.

This is a follow-up tutorial on "Creating a file manager with PHP", and I highly recommend reading the previous tutorial first, before reading this tutorial.

In the previous tutorial I showed you how to build a simple file manager, which could upload, download, edit and delete, with PHP, but there was one problem: it wasn't completely secure if you had your upload directory in a public place. That's why in this tutorial I'm going to show you how to fix that.

In the new script he helps you rework the previous script, making it a bit safer for your files to be someplace public. One of the keys is creating a "protected file" with a 404 header at the top, thwarting any would-be leachers. He also includes the code for editing and deleting these protected files as if they were normal...

Tobias Schlitt's Blog:
A sensible place for a fluent interface
January 03, 2006 @ 11:52:41

On his blog today, Tobias Schlitt has his look at fluent interfaces, and it's place in the eZ components libraries.

The new buzz term "fluent interface" has been mentioned a lot in the PHP world recently, so I will not again explain, what a "fluent interface" is. Andi already mentioned, that this way of desining an API is quite good and can give you a really handy interface, but he also points out, that one should make very careful use of the technique.

Also I did not know the term "fluent interface" before, we realized, that we already used this in the eZ components, to be more exact, in our Database package, which gives you a quite good ammount of SQL abstraction.

He gives a brief example from their code, and explains how it works. The statement selects from a table "Person" where the age is greater than 15 and orders it by the "full_name" field, limit of 10 rows returned. With the "fluent interface" concept, that's pretty much how the statement "reads" as well...
