PHP Weekly Reader – April 27th 2008

Posted by:


Everybody is expecting lots of traffic. Thats the trend of last weeks posts anyway, there were at least 7 articles on the subject. It is one of my favorite topics, unfortunately I never have enough traffic to see any of them actually solve a problem for me.


Patterns is another topic I really wished I saw more PHP articles for. Somebody put this on dzone maybe it will start a trend for next week? Patterns for PHP.


The weekly Zend Framework related articles. I am going to have to give in and actually do something with the ZF before its at version 2.0. There is a tutorial series in the list that walks you through building a blog application, I think I will try to follow it.

Books and Reviews

Miscellaneous Stuff

Every week I have a ton of links that don’t really fit in any particular category. I usually try to fit them all in somewhere, but the last couple weeks have been all over the place so here goes a big list of misc. stuff.

Future articles

The last couple articles I’ve written in this series have been short changed and I apologize for that, I started the series for several reasons one was to discipline myself to write on a regular basis, they definitely have helped serve that purpose. I received an email today as i wrote this one telling me how useless they are. I’m not very thin skinned believe me it doesn’t offend me to not be found useful :) , maybe they are useful to others maybe they aren’t, I wrote them because they are fun to do. However on looking back I have to agree that this blog has become a one trick pony, so starting next week I will be writing more articles that actually have original work produced by me. I will continue with this series and am asking for comments on what would be useful for others in the Weekly Review.

Oh and I have a fan who will punch you in the nose if you don’t like what I write about, thats better than all the dzone votes in the world.

    regarding Patterns: IMHO there should be different (more fitting) patterns for PHP and not the standard Java/C++ patterns just transcoded. Going back to the ideas of Christopher Alexander, Pattern should be a "Hint to what to design" and not a cookbook for special implementation. I doubt that the Java Patterns really work in the PHP world (some do, others not).

    I like your weekly readers, that guys doesn't have to read em, tell him to get bent.

  3. Doug Hill  April 30, 2008

    I agree with you, there are a lot of patterns and implementations of patterns that just don't work in PHP. I think I see about 5 or 6 patterns covered over and over, they are obvious and have Java/C++ implementations, I would like to see some discussion of PHP specific patterns.

    Having been without my laptop for the past week due to the fan being broken I appreciate this. Saves me time with going back through the various archives and looking for the few things that interest me. So please do keep up with these weekly summaries.

    The performance articles for this week are much appreciated as I actually do have traffic to worry about. :P

    Just to back up what others are saying please do keep up the good work with these summaries. I'm probably subscribed to many of the same feeds as you but keeping up with them all is a hit and miss affair. It's great to be able to take a second sweep at some of the best posts via these summaries.

    A notice about specialty vehicles: When you want one thing that is not on the menu” on the car rental firm's web site, do not assume that it
    isn't accessible. Some places may carry other forms of vehicles, but you do not see them because the reservation system
    they belong to uses generic photos of autos as suggestions of what may be accessible.
