Zeev Suraski:
Your PHP Stories
Jul 28, 2017 @ 10:43:39

Zeev Suraski of Zend has a post on his personal site asking the developers and community out there for any interesting PHP stories they might be willing to share.

Do you have an interesting story that involves PHP? Something awkward, unexpected or inspiring that happened to you or that you witnessed that was related to PHP and/or its community? Did PHP help you meet your spouse, otherwise change your life or enable you to change other people's lives?

I have no doubt that there's some interesting stories out there. If you're one of the many that has one (even if you don't think it's that interesting it might be to others) you can find his contact information on the post to share it.

Qandidate.com Blog:
How we manage our development process at Qandidate.com
Aug 22, 2014 @ 10:34:46

The Qandidate blog has a new post today that "pulls back the curtain" as to how they manage their development process and get their work done.

At Qandidate.com we tried a lot of different project management tools and techniques. After two years of experimenting I want to share our current process, seen from my role as product owner (PO). One reason for sharing this, is to help you improve your process, but the most important reason is to start a discussion with you based on your experience, to improve our process even more. Our main rule at Qandidate.com is to embrace change. Always be open for changes that may or may not improve your process. If a change improves the process it’s a win. If you didn’t try it you will never know!

They walk through the three main points over the overall flow of work there:

  • The process itself including two week sprints containing (unestimated) stories
  • A demo and stakeholders meeting showing the work they've done during the sprint and get feedback from the stakeholders
  • The stories and how they're created and when/how new ones are added (their "piano meetings").

They also include testing, both frontend and backend, and focus on small chunks of functionality instead of quick and dirty hacks. While their process won't work for every group (and is more of a "scrum-but..." setup) it is interesting to see how another group does their work.

Looking for HTML_AJAX Success Stories
Dec 08, 2005 @ 10:27:51

Our sister site, AjaxDeveloper.org has a new post today with a request from Joshua Eichorn, the developer of the HTML_AJAX PEAR package for success stories.

If you’ve used HTML_AJAX to make something cool I’d like to hear from you.

If what you’ve created is publically accessible that would be even better.

Just leave a comment on this post saying what you’ve created and given a link to it if you can. Any suggestions on improvements that would make further development easier are also appreciated.

With the HTML_AJAX package being as well-developed as it is, I'm sure that there are more than a few out there using it - so get on over and submit your story today!
