Developer Drive:
Building a PHP Ad Tracker Data Object Design and Coding
February 08, 2012 @ 12:57:54

Continuing on from the first part of their tutorial series about creating a simple ad tracker for your web application, Developer Drive is back with part two, a more in-depth look at the actual object design and code.

In our last PHP Ad Tracker lesson, we constructed the database tables for our ad banner application. Now we are ready to construct the data object that will hold the variables and functions that will display, add, edit and delete the data in those tables.

They cover each of the variables they'll be using with a summary of what they're used for as well as the various functions to be defined and what they'll return. Following this, they get into the actual development - creating an "ads" class and defining the methods to get the current ad count, get the number of clients and pull the actual client/ad data.

Developer Drive:
Building a PHP Ad Tracker Creating the Database Tables
January 16, 2012 @ 12:48:30

On Developer Drive today there's a new post (the first in a series) from Gerald Hanks about building an ad tracker in PHP. In this first part he sets up some of the background - the database that will hold the tracker information.

Banner ads for services related to the web site owner's industry allow customers to view products that tie into the site owner's core business. In exchange, the web site owner can charge the banner ad owner for every impression (banner ad appearance) or click-through (when a user clicks the banner ad). In order to build a banner ad management system, we must first create the database tables that will hold the ad information, the client data and the activity schedule for each ad.

He includes the SQL you'll need to create a few tables - the tracking table for the ads themselves (their metadata), the clients table to handle the groups wanting the ads and the activity table to track views and click-throughs.

Lukas Smith's Blog:
RC testing and the README.UPDATE
August 23, 2006 @ 06:38:56

According to this new post on Lukas Smith's blog today, the PHP project has started a new effort aimed at helping out developers upgrading their PHP installations - a new README file with details on each upgraded version and its install.

In order to make the transistion for users upgrading to new minor (middle number increment) and major (leading number increment) version of PHP easier, the PHP project has recently begun adding a README with upgrade information with new releases. This guide steps through any issues that users are likely to be faced when upgrading their PHP installations.

Lukas also reminds developers that testing these releases is the only real way to find the bugs that are there and catch them before the final release for that version. Bug issues can be reported to the tracker and, if you'd like to see an example of this new README file for PHP 5.2, check out this example.

Chris Shiflett's Blog:
OSCON People and Random Tidbits
August 03, 2006 @ 12:01:01

Back with more from his experiences at this year's OSCON, Chris Shiflett has posted a few of the more random things he experienced while there.

One of the great things about OSCON is how it brings people together, and this year's conference was no different. I had the privilege of meeting a number of people for the first time.

People on his list include Cal Evans, Andrew van der Stock, Kevin Yank, Jeremy Johnstone, and Ed Finkler. He also mentions a "cool idea" from Zak Greant - the use of a bug/issue tracker to deal with community issues.

Chris also briefly mentions the "PHP trading card game", the PHP Security Hoedown, and the OmniIT book signing.

Zend Developer Zone:
Zend Framework Site Gets Bug Tracker, Source Browser.
May 05, 2006 @ 07:01:13

The Zend Developer Zone has posted a new article about the latest offering when it comes to the Framework - the introduction of a bug tracker/source browser application on the Framework's site to help manage the project.

This morning some much-anticipated features were unveiled on the Zend Framework website. Powered by the open-source software Trac, the new site features include a Subversion repository browser, an issue tracker, a project timeline, and a search function. Previously, developers could access the source code and commit timeline through Subversion, but the new web-based interface provides a simple and attractive way to track progress on the Framework.

The post also includes some screenshots from the application, showcasing each of its many pages of functionality - source browser, issue tracker, timeline, and the search function.

For direct access to the site, head over to the Zend Framework site and click on the Developer tab.
