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.
Pretty good list. I’d have put php.net at the top though.
Tonight we’ll be saying goodbye to Eric Thelin, who has been with and owned the group for many years (since the beginning AFAIK).
We’ll also be discussing what to do (and how, where, why, etc) for a group project, so bring a laptop so we can get set up.
We had fun looking at Ext.js last night. Nothing fancy; mainly just looking through the examples focusing on datagrids.
Little tutorial to add a bit of dynamic text to your site’s favicon (the icon that appears on the tab or window border). Google added a feature to gmail (available in Labs), which shows the number of new messages in your inbox using this kind of method.
Before you go reading this comment thread (link below) be aware that just because something is possible in a programming language, it doesn’t mean you should do things that way. Also, there’s a LOT of BAD code in the main post.
[The following is the opinion of Gordon, not necessarily AzPHP as a whole]
Personally, I avoid variable variables like the plague. If you feel the need to use one, step back and see if you can use an associative array instead. You will thank me later. An array structure is much easier to deal with than a bunch of unlinked funky-named variables that you have to rebuild each time you need them. Arrays are increasingly useful if you have to loop through said data structures or easily store them.
Variable variables are both powerful and a curse. Use them if you feel you must, but I only ask that you use them wisely.
A few in the list I’ve never heard of.
