Easybib Blog:
Extending Composer
October 07, 2013 @ 12:20:41

In this recent post to their site, Easybib shares a presentation and the answers to some questions about extending Composer, the popular package management tool for PHP.

Composer is one of the core tooling we use at EasyBib when we work on the various products for the company. [This] deck of slides is from a talk I gave at the Berlin PHP Usergroup meetup in November. [...] In addition, there were a few questions how dependencies are handle in a project when installed through composer's global command.

They answer questions about loading global vendors (and what should/shouldn't be installed this way) as well as which one wins - the globally installed version or local.

Josh Holmes' Blog:
Making PHP faster on IIS
April 07, 2010 @ 12:41:03

Josh Holmes (a Microsoft Evangelist) recently gave a presentation about getting PHP applications, specifically WordPress to work better on a Windows-based platform (whether it be running on a physical server or something like Azure).

I talked about the amazing improvements in FastCGI over the past few years, the Web Application Gallery and Web Platform Installer (WebPI), URL Redirect, WinCache and many other things that Microsoft is doing to embrace open source technologies.

The slides for the talk are over on Slideshare but if you want something a little more engaging, check out the webcast from php|architect this coming Friday (April 9th) by Mark Brown and Ruslan Yakushev on the same subject.

Maarten Balliauw's Blog:
PHPPowerPoint 0.1.0 (CTP1) released!
April 30, 2009 @ 11:16:53

Maarten Balliauw has posted about the release of a new bit of software to help you read and write from/to Microsoft PowerPoint files - PHPPowerPoint (0.1.0 CTP1).

Just like with PHPExcel, PHPPowerPoint can be used to generate PPTX files from a PHP application. This can be done by creating an in-memory presentation that consists of slides and different shapes, which can then be written to disk using a writer (of which there's currently only one for PowerPoint 2007).

Some example code is included that creates a single-slide slideshow with the PHPPowerpoint logo and the text "Thank you for using PHPPowerpoint". There's plenty of configuration options and you can place things in the slides down to the pixel. You can try out this initial release here.

Matthew Weier O'Phinney's Blog:
Syntax Highlighting for Technical Presentations
March 11, 2009 @ 10:22:17

If you've given any kind of technical presentation, you know that presenting code samples (clearly) can be one of the larger challenges. Matthew Weier O'Phinney has found a solution that works well for him and his slides - Highlight.

Being a technical presenter, I've often run up against the issue of how to present code snippets. The easiest route is to simply cut-and-paste into your presentation software. However, such code is basically unreadable. [...] The first trick I tried was to take screenshots of gvim. However, this had distinct downsides. [...] The next trick I tried was to use Zend Studio or Eclipse to create my screen shots.

He talks about the tool (Highlight) and its use - basically you specify the input, output and the language it needs to highlight for with more fine-tuning options like font size, line width and more. Compare this and this to the end result of Highlight here to get a feeling for how the product might look.

PHP Fundamentals (Online Course)
January 15, 2009 @ 12:04:32

Haim Michael has put together a "PHP Fundamentals" class that aims to cover most of the information one might need to take the Zend Certified Engineer certification.

I am glad to announce about "PHP Fundamentals", a new course I have developed few months ago and recently completed to refine its slides and assignments. This course is available for free at www.abelski.com. This new course overviews the basic topics in PHP and reflects a practical approach for learning this language.

This post to his blog includes the PDF files for each of the sections in the course - everything from the "PHP Basics" out to "Exception Handling" and "The Standard PHP Library".

Singapore PHP User Group:
Blair Layton of Oracle Presents on 11g (video)
October 30, 2008 @ 09:32:46

Chris Jones has pointed out a video of a recent presentation at the Singapore PHP User Group Meeting done by Blair Layton (of Oracle Asia Pacific) on the OCI8 extension and using it to connect PHP.

While most PHP developers start off on the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack there maybe a need to investigate OPAL (Oracle, PHP, Apache, Linux). This talk will discuss what Oracle offers PHP developers including operating system, database, middleware and tools support. You will find out how to take advantage of specific features in Oracle Database 11g that assist PHP developers such as Database Resident Connection Pooling with code samples and demos. An example architecture from a USA web company of a highly scalable PHP application that uses Oracle database will also be discussed.

His slides are also available for download - Set 1, Set 2 and you can watch the full video here.

Scott MacVicar's Blog:
Source Code Highlighting within Slides
June 10, 2008 @ 09:31:31

Scott MacVicar shares a helpful hint for the PHP speakers out there - how to apply syntax highlighting to the code in your slides.

I use Apple's Keynote for doing my presentations and naturally these include some bits of code that need highlighting so that it's easier to read. [...] In the end I used GESHI which is a highlight library written in PHP that supports the syntax highlighting of around 50 different programming and scripting languages.

He's provided his sample implementation to help you get up and running. You'll need to download and install GESHI to get it working though. Here's an example of the output.
