DynamicWbePages.de has information posted today about a keynote that Rasmus Lerdorf will be giving at the "Bessere Software" Conference happening November 27th through 30th in Frankfurt.

The two-day conference, taking place in November in Frankfurt/Main, will have four tracks covering a wide range of topics from SOA to Ruby on Rails and Web 2.0. Fifteen tutorials will be given on the days before and after the conference. The organizers this year asked Rasmus Lerdorf (Yahoo!) to come be the keynote speaker. The topic of his keynote hasn't been set yet, but despite this he has been assigned his place in the program.

You can get complete details on the conference from the official website.

InternetNews.com:
Is PHP The Cure For The 'Broken' Web?
September 15, 2006 @ 07:55:06

InternetNews.com starts off their latest article the same way Rasmus Lerdorf started off his keynote at php|works this year - "The Web is broken and it's all your fault."

He said the current state of the Internet includes a litany of broken items, but with a little help from PHP there may well be some hope for the Web yet.

The article talks about some of Rasmus' other thoughts on the status of the web, and how, with the right functionality and knowledge spread out through the PHP community, the language can compensate for some of the "stupidity" that web programmers (and users) regularly see.

He also talks a bit about a "rich application delivery system", MySQL versus PostgreSQL, parsing and compiling speed, and opcode caches.

Ligaya Turmelle's Blog:
Why use PHP5?
June 05, 2006 @ 05:53:27

On her blog today, Ligaya Turmelle brings up some comments made previously by Rasmus himself to answer the question "why use PHP5?" and encourage adoption of this powerful version.

Noticed an interesting thread on the PHP-general mailing list. The original thread was someone asking why should the world start adopting PHP5. Rasmus came back and answered the question with a list of benefits of making the change (using 5.1 not 5.0). Now I admit to not working with any of these, but many of them certainly look interesting enough for a second glance.

The items listed include:

  • SimpleXML
  • Improved DOM support
  • the inclusion of xmlreader/xmlwriter
  • SOAP functionality
  • a native date/time mechanism

The PHP5 adoption rate is slowly on the rise as more and more development is done on it, but it's still surprising to me how much of the world is still back in PHP4-only land.

Sebastian Bergmann's Blog:
PHP - kurz & gut (Pocket Reference Update)
March 16, 2006 @ 06:52:41

From this post on Sebastian Bergmann's blog, we learn about an update to the original O'Reilly "PHP Pocket Reference" (German translation edition) book by Rasmus Lerdorf.

Garvin Hicking has updated the German edition of Rasmus Lerdorf's "PHP Pocket Reference" book for PHP 5 and I wrote the introduction to object-oriented programming chapter for this new edition.

More information here.

This will be the third edition of the book, with some major updates made to include the new features that PHP 5 has to offer. The functions are now categoriezed a bit better to make for quick lookup, and the introduction is reworked to includes some of the updates as well.

Alex Young's Blog:
The Future of PHP is More Depressing than Ever
March 03, 2006 @ 07:03:29

From Alex Young's blog there comes this post stating some of his opinions about the future of PHP and how it "is more depressing than ever".

Rasmus Lerdorf wrote quite a nice article called The no-framework PHP MVC framework. In it, he demonstrates how to create a simple application by using the model view controller design pattern. Using this design pattern, he creates a basic framework to save some effort with common tasks.

Put your hands up if you were a PHP programmer who was writing python or ruby on the side due to the incomprehensibly naive design of PHP… Now put your hands up if you understand and have worked extensively with object oriented programming, functional programming and perhaps agile programming. You're the guys I'm talking to.

He continues, alluding to the lack of sophistication amung PHP developers (procedural over OOP?) and some comments about what he thinks PHP is really missing. He does, however, encourage those out there just getting into design patterns with PHP to check out the article if for nothing more than a good intro to MVC.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
Rasmus Lerdorf - Web 2.0's John Wayne
March 01, 2006 @ 07:19:20

In the latest entry on the SitePoint PHP Blog, Harry Fuecks has posted that points out a new tutorial from Rasmus.

The tutorial, the no-framework PHP MVC framework, uses a good combination of PHP and Javascript to seperate out the backend logic of the system from the controller and output from the resulting scripts. He provides all of the code and a few illustrations along the way to help you understand how the code should flow. There's even an example app to play with to see how it will all come out.

Harry has also included a few "highly-quotable Rasmus" bits in his post and suggests that Rasmus is Web 2.0's "John Wayne"...

Jim Plush's Blog:
JSON extension to be bundled into the PHP core?
January 27, 2006 @ 07:05:41

Jim Plush has a new post today with his look at the talk surrounding the introduction of JSON functionality into the PHP core.

Rasmus made a posting on the php internals list regarding rolling Omar Kilani's JSON Extension which serializes/deserializes datatypes into Javascript Object Notation and vice versa. Since this is done in C space is MUCH faster (85 times from Omar's perf testing) than the existing PHP JSON classes. http://www.aurore.net/projects/php-json/

I see JSON becoming the dominant player in the AJAX world in the upcoming future. It's ease of entry, especially if bundled with PHP will make it a no brainer for AJAX or AJAJ applications.

The suggestion is quoted in the post, and it seems that Rasmus only suggests that the extension be included in PHP. As far as I'm aware of, though, there hasn't been any action to pursue it...
