Peter Aba:
phpmetrics of popular php projects
September 15, 2014 @ 10:11:01

Peter Aba has put together a a set of visualizations around the popularity of various PHP projects using the phpmetrics tool. He decided to run it against several projects he knows of and share the results.

I came across a new tool called phpmetrics. It can be used for, what a surprise, calculating and displaying metrics for php. I fell in love with this cute little tool in an instance and decided to run it on some php projects that I consider important. I'm aware of the fact that the list is currently far from complete, but it's probably still worth a look. I especially love the "maintenability" (sic!) reports, I find those big red spots just as disgusting as I find ugly code the same.

He's broken it up into a few different sections with lots of different projects under each:

  • Frameworks
  • CMS
  • E-commerce
  • Development tools

There's also an "Other" (and "Backfire") category that contains the results for the results of phpmetrics itself. He also includes a few issues he ran across during the processing of the metrics, some with the phpmetrics tool itself and some with the libraries themselves.

Loosely Coupled Podcast:
Episode 5 Side Projects
June 03, 2014 @ 11:49:56

The Loosely Coupled podcast has released their latest episode, Episode #5: Side Projects hosted by PHP community members Jeff Carouth and Matt Frost.

In this episode Matt and Jeff talk about how and why you should consider getting involved in side projects. Despite the jovial subtitle, "Getting a little side action," participating in development outside of your normal development routine is beneficial to you as a developer as well as to your employer or clients. They further expand on the topic by talking about non-code-related side projects such as podcasts, discussion groups, or even writing.

They point out one application that's a good starting point if you're not sure where to get involved: the PHP Mentoring Mentor App. You can listen to this latest episode either using the in-page player or by downloading the mp3 directly.

David Goodwin's Blog:
Book Review PHP Web 2.0 Mashup Projects
September 03, 2008 @ 12:51:47

David Goodwin has posted a new book review of a PHP book offered by Packt Publishing (released Sept 22, 2007) - "PHP Web 2.0 Mashup Projects" by Shu-Wai Chow.

Some time ago, Packt publishing sent me this book to review. Here it is, being somewhat overdue!

He talks about the book's contents - the different chapters detailing the different services' APIs, the protocols that are used to talk to those services and the data formats your scripts would have to be able to talk in to communicate. He recommends the book to those looking to get started with mashups specifically, but warns that in some places the book tends to "reinvent the wheel" rather than using classes/packages that already exist.

Paul Jones' Blog:
Teaser for php|works
September 11, 2006 @ 16:27:44

Paul Jones will be one of the presenters at this year's php/db|works Conference happening up in Toronto this week and he's offering a teaser of his talk (here's the synopsis) for those interested - "Organizing Your PHP Projects".

Fans of Henry Hazlitt's "Economics in One Lesson" will recognize the kind of talk I have in store, although I don't have the time available to expound in detail the way Hazlitt does. The talk will consist of a one-sentence lesson for you to remember when deciding how to organize your PHP project, whether it's a library, an application, a CMS, or a framework. I'll then explain how to apply the One Lesson in your project, and the various follow-on effects the One Lesson will have on your project organization.

He also jokes that he'll be the only presenter to use references to livestock, Jimmy Hoffa, and Mir as a part of the talk. He's even included a slide of the presentation for even more info.

ThinkPHP Blog:
How do you start Scrum for your PHP projects?
March 10, 2006 @ 06:55:36

Referencing back to a previous post they made about the Scrum development method, the ThinkPHP blog has posted a HOWTO of sorts on getting this kind of development started.

In my previous blog post, I was asked how to implement Scrum in the first steps. My personal experience is that it's better not to directly begin with all the methods Scrum provides. Scrum requires changes in your internal business processes, so it's better to move ahead step by step instead of trying to get everything done until tomorrow (you see, incremental steps.

The main obstacles we experienced is in projects where you have moving targets - requirement changes every day. It requires a very good shape of discipline of all stakeholders in the project. See how we started...

He describes each step of the way, beginning with a meeting for the first sprint followed by a short sprint time - 5 days. They even mention a PHP app they've worked up to help track and manage this kind of development - a module for their PHProjekt software, the Scrum Addon.
