Three Devs & A Maybe Podcast:
The First All-Episode Quiz
August 14, 2014 @ 09:17:35

On the latest episode of the Three Devs & A Maybe podcast Michael Budd, Fraser Hart, Lewis Cains and Edd Mann have their first quiz show (Episode #38).

This week we start our chat off with the myth of just simply 'reskinning' a website, along with the dreaded !important in CSS. Following this, as we love quizzes so much, we decided to dedicate a full show to one. In this weeks quiz we touch upon many areas of PHP, JavaScript, CSS and random computer/programming history. We also now have t-shirts on sale, available via the first link in the show-notes (why don't you treat yourself).

Topics discussed in this episode include AngularJS fundamentals, speed in software development and avoiding burnout. You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page player or by downloading the mp3 directly. If you enjoy the show also consider subscribing to their feed.

Project:
Web Application Security Quiz
June 14, 2013 @ 10:54:55

If you're looking to test out your application security knowledge, you might want to give Timo's Web Application Security Quiz a try:

Web Application Security Quiz tests your knowledge on the common security principles and quirks related to web application development. There are 15 questions. A correct answer adds one point. An incorrect answer subtracts one point. If you don't know the right answer, you can skip the question (no points are added or subtracted).

It's a pretty good overview of some of the concepts you'd find in most application security policies and includes the answers if you're interested in some of the reasoning behind them.

PHP Quiz part 2
May 14, 2009 @ 12:05:22

Mark van der Velden has posted another PHP quiz you can used to test your knowledge of the language:

A short quiz this time, but that doesn't make it less fun. Do you know the answer to all of them? Get a cup of coffee and kill 10 minutes with round two... As always, think of the answer before you execute the code or look it up. You can find round one here.

This one has questions on arrays, ArrayAccess, references, operator precedence and nesting structures. There's no answer key, so you'll just have to test it out if you want to see the answer.

PHP vs. .NET Blog:
Ten PHP Best Practices Tips that will get you a job
June 26, 2008 @ 11:13:59

Blake has posted some of his opinions on "best practices" that can help you land that new job you've been looking for:

The last couple of weeks have been quite the experience for me. I was part of a big layoff at my former company, which was interesting. I've never been in that position before, and it's hard not to take it personally. [...] Before the face-to-face portion, I chatted with the owner and head programmer on a conference call, and they ended up sending me a technical assessment quiz.

In the quiz, there was one question the prompted him to come up with his tips - ten things that you can do to keep your code clean, lean and easy to maintain. His tips include things like "use single-quotes around array indexes", "don't use open short tags" and "document your code". Some of the suggestions don't make that much of a difference, but others (like the documentation one) can make the world of difference down the line.

On the Zend Developer Zone, there's a new post that has the info on how you could get your hands on a free copy of Zend's Studio software (a $300 USD value).

[...] We've got a quiz (No, not a survey, a quiz!) to test your mad Zend Studio skillz. If you don't have said skillz, I'd suggest downloading the Free 30 Day Trial of Zend Studio and develop them.

Once you are a Studio-Fu master, take the quiz by clicking on this link.
