[php]architect:
Returning to Print!
Oct 16, 2013 @ 09:29:06

[php]architect magazine has made a big announcement today in response to one major request they've received - the magazine is once again available in a print version!

"Are you going to bring the magazine back to print?" It's the #1 question on everyone's minds. Since musketeers.me first acquired php[architect] at the beginning of 2013, it is the one question that we have constantly been asked. While digital publishing is the future, people still love the feeling of having a printed magazine in hand.

Knowing that our customers wanted it, we've worked hard to figure out a way that we could bring the magazine back to print again. We are extremely excited today to announce that starting with the November 2013 issue, php[architect] will once again be printed!

The print subscription will come in at $119 USD for a year's worth of magazines. They've also updated all current customers to a combined Digital level that includes all three major formats (PDF, ePub and Mobi). You can get more information about your current subscription level by logging in or, if you want to sign up now, check out the subscription information.

Matthew Weier O'Phinney's Blog:
A Simple PHP Publish-Subscribe System
Dec 16, 2008 @ 10:23:26

In a new post to his blog Matthew Weier O'Phinney shares a simple publish-subscribe system he's created based on a feature of the Dojo toolkit using the Zend Framework to create an easy notification architecture.

The system has elements of Aspect Oriented Programming (AOP), as well as the Observer pattern. Its power, however, is in the fact that an individual object does not need to implement any specific interface in order to act as either a Subject or an Observer; the system is globally available.

The script creates an object that publishes an event. This event then sends off messages to all of the other objects subscribing to it. A code example is included. You also can check out the code from its page on github (as a part of his Phly libraries) and play with it yourself.

php|architect:
DRM no more
Dec 10, 2007 @ 15:24:00

The folks over at php|architect have made an important announcement concerning something that might have kept you away from subscribing to them in the past - they're dropping the DRM.

It seems a little strange to say (or write) it out loud, but, this month, php|architect turns five! To celebrate the release of our sixtieth issue (which was actually November), we have decided to remove all password protection from the PDFs you download from our sites (that is, both php|architect and Pymag).

Marco Tabini (publisher of the magazine) explained some of the reasoning behind the shift as fixing something that "has become a liability for us and a nuisance for our readers". They've made it so that not only will the future issues coming out of the group be password-less but you can also redownload the older issues without the password they previously had.

If you haven't gotten a chance to check out this great PHP-centered publication, check out their free issue to get an idea of what they have in store. Subscribing is easy - just check out their options and pick the one that's right for you - either print or PDF!

Introduction to Flex Using PHP
Jul 20, 2007 @ 10:23:00

O'Reilly's ONLamp.com website has posted a new tutorial that merges PHP with another powerful web technology - Flex.

With all the hype (and money) surrounding buzzword terms like Web 2.0 and Rich Internet Applications (RIA), it's easy to wonder, "How can I integrate that into my PHP application?" Certainly, Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax) technologies that use JavaScript code are a good option. But you should also have a look at the Adobe Flex framework. With Flex, you can quickly build functional, attractive user interfaces in Adobe Flash that communicate to your PHP web application through XML.

They go through the usual of showing what Flex is and how it flows in a web application. From there, they move into the tutorial portion - installing the Flex Builder software, creating a new project, testing using Flex Builder and the construction of a sample application (store/access a list of subscribers).
