ZendCon 2015 Call for Papers Opens
April 02, 2015 @ 12:49:37

Zend has announce the official opening of the Call for Papers for ZendCon 2015, their annual PHP and technology conference. Instead of their usual venue in California, though, they'll be holding the event in Las Vegas, Nevada from October 19th through the 22nd.

We're pleased to announce the ZendCon 2015 PHP Conference, the most anticipated PHP centric event of the year, where community and enterprise PHP developers from around the world gather to share and learn the latest hot trends and technologies in today's professional PHP development.

We know speakers are key to the success of a conference and hope you will submit a talk. In appreciation for the efforts provided, our speakers package ensures they will not need to worry about anything other than delivering the best talks.

While ZendCon is put on by Zend (a company largely focused on PHP) they accept talks on more than just PHP-related topics. You can find out more about the conference in previous years (and some of the topics that were accepted) on the main conference site. The Call for Papers ends on May 15th so be sure to get those submissions in early and often!

Anthony Ferrara:
A Followup To An Open Letter To PHP-FIG
October 17, 2014 @ 11:51:35

Based on some of the responses to his previous open letter to the PHP-FIG (Framework Interoperability Group), Anthony Ferrara has posted a follow-up explaining some of his points made and the caching proposal in a bit more detail.

A few days ago, I wrote An Open Letter to PHP-FIG. Largely the feedback on it was positive, but not all. So I feel like I do have a few more things to say. What follows is a collection of followups to specific points of contention raised about my post. I'm going to ignore the politics and any non-technical discussion here.

He points out that while the previous post wasn't completely about the cache proposal (it was used as a "literary device") there was some confusion on it. He walks through the "unnecessary complexity" he sees with it, citing code examples, and makes points about performance, memory usage handling stampede protection and the creation of standard ways to avoid it. He ends the post with a look at group invalidation handling and two ways it could be accomplished, either via namespacing or through tagging the items and using that as a reference point for the invalidation.

NetTuts.com:
SOLID Part 2 - The Open/Closed Principle
January 21, 2014 @ 12:45:29

On NetTuts.com today they continue their look at the SOLID development principles with the next letter in the sequence - O for Open/Closed Principle. The first part of the series, covering "S" (the Single Responsibility Principle) can be found here.

The Open/Closed Principle, OCP in short, is credited to Bertrand Mayer, a French programmer, who first published it in his book Object-Oriented Software Construction in 1988. The principle rose in popularity in the early 2000s when it became one of the SOLID principles defined by Robert C. Martin in his book Agile Software Development, Principles, Patterns, and Practices and later republished in the C# version of the book Agile Principles, Patterns, and Practices in C#. What we are basically talking about here is to design our modules, classes and functions in a way that when a new functionality is needed, we should not modify our existing code but rather write new code that will be used by existing code.

They start with a look at OCP in the overall SOLID context and an example of an obvious violation of the principle. Some example code is provided showing a "Progress" class that's bound to at "File" implementation, not abstracted. They offer three different options for solving the issue:

  • Take Advantage of the Dynamic Nature of PHP
  • Use the Strategy Design Pattern
  • Use the Template Method Design Pattern

Each of the above comes with example code and some with illustrations of the structure they create.

PHP-FIG Voting on PSR-4 Opened
September 20, 2013 @ 12:18:31

The PHP-FIG has officially started the voting process for the PSR-4 autoloading standard that would provide an interface to make autoloading a bit more standardized across applications.

The purpose is to specify the rules for an interoperable PHP autoloader that maps namespaces to file system paths, and that can co-exist with any other SPL registered autoloader. This would be an addition to, not a replacement for, PSR-0.

The current autoloading standard definition (PSR-0) still allows for the use of the underscore in class names to resolve to directory paths in the application's files. In this new standard, that allowance is gone, relying only on the actual namespacing to define package pathing. This "package-oriented autoloading" is set to help move PHP package development forward into a more standardized structure.

Dutch PHP Conference (2013) Call for Papers Opens
January 16, 2013 @ 08:45:00

The Dutch PHP Conference has officially opened their Call for Papers for this year's event (happening in early June):

We're back! And we are glad to announce that we'll be organising another edition of the Dutch PHP Conference, which will be held in Amsterdam from 6th to 8th June 2013.

Submissions should be relevant to PHP developers, to help them to expand their skill set and improve their practices. In particular we'd like to receive proposals regarding emerging technologies, performance and scalability, platforms and best practices. The standard conference sessions should be 45 minutes and tutorials are 3 or 6 hours in length (note that 6 hours is our preference).

As always we're excited about all kinds of different topics. You could say that as long as it's somehow related to PHP and you're really excited about it, we want to hear it!

You can find out more about the conference in general from the main conference site.
