Elijah did a great job presenting the basics on using PDO and how it can help you secure your code last Tuesday.
Next month I’ll be demoing how to set up your (local) development environment to use XDebug for debugging code within your IDE. I’ll use PHPStorm, but it can be done about the same with PHPEclipse.

Mobilize Your MongoDB! Developing iPhone and Android Apps in the Cloud: This is a technical how-to session on how to develop iPhone and Android apps with PHP + MongoDB backends for the cloud. Grant will feature an app he wrote called Beershift and take you through the mobile development process.

Icon Fonts

If you haven’t been paying attention, the newest thing in icons is font-icons.  That means creating vector-based images, putting them in a font, then assigning css classes to specific characters (icons) in the font.  It’s smooth, scalable, fast, and works on recent versions of all modern browsers.  There are already a few editors out there which you can use to create them, or just look on github for “fontello” to generate one.

Finally got the azphp.org domain transferred over.  There may or may not be some changes this weekend.  I know we mostly use FB for everything now, but we’ll still have the site if needed.

FYI: Going to start migrating the site over to a different server over the next few days, so you may experience some downtime.
