An article published on Smashing Magazine’s site by Chris Shiflett and Sean Coates:
I thought it had some good stuff. There are a few arguments in the comments, but that’s to be expected.
I presented tonight my findings from ZendCon 2008…mostly my notes from different sessions I attended in powerpoint form, but there were interesting tools I found while there, including phpUnderControl, monyog, and flex. I’ve grabbed a bunch of presentations and put them in one spot for anyone who wants them. Presentations are here.
A few months ago, I did a presentation at the meeting on putting together a MVC framework containing pieces of Zend Framework and Doctrine. Originally conceived by Cory Powers and myself, the result is named Crystal Core. The slide show presentation can be found here.
Crystal can be checked out via Subversion from here.
If you have any questions about the project or want to help out, please contact me through my website.
Those of you who didn’t come missed an extremely fun and informative meeting. We upgraded azphp.org to the latest wordpress and in the process fixed a bunch of broken items from the old site.
We learned how to easily install or upgrade an instance of wordpress using subversion. Doing so via svn allows you to easily upgrade or switch between wordpress versions (tags) without mucking about with tarballs and ftp.
All in all, a good meeting. Now, off to Boulders on Broadway for the usual foodstuffs.
We’ve switched our site over to WordPress to make keeping it up to date easier. Let us know if you are missing anything really important.
Oh and we did the upgrade during this month’s meeting. If you’re not here you’re missing a lot of fun.
Ethereal is a sniffer, a tool for troubleshooting, analysis, and (surprise) development of software.
While ethereal is typically thought of as a tool for networking professionals, and it surely is great at those tasks, it can also be used by coders for looking under the hood or “on the wire”.
Paul Yurt founder of MasterMOZ.com generated a lively discussion about standards from the perspective of the PHP community. No one was ignored and this was not as dry as it sounds.
This 6/26 meeting explored standards from the perspective of what people expect when they talk about developing, coding and techniques to standards.
Presentation given April 24, 2007 bu Eric Thelin. General installation and usage of subversion. PDF of slides is attached.
