A PHP Upgrade

without comments

PHP 5.3 was recently released as an update and it features namespaces, PHP archive files, and garbage collection upgrade for web functionalities, server-side. It is said that the recent upgrade works much better now with Windows. The PHP community has definitely worked very hard on creating a better binary pack for Windows PHP. It now includes Microsoft compilers and it will definitely improve performance. There are also other libraries that are highlighted for Windows PHP applications. Garbage collection will surely improve the memory usage. What it will do is avoid certain conditions that could make it prone to memory leakage.Namespaces on the other hand is a functionality that enables PHP code mix and match form different sources.

PHPとウェブ

without comments

PHPには、ウェブサイトでの使用に特化して設計された多くの機能があります。 PHPはHTML形式に対応しているので、HTML上で表示できます。また、ユーザが入力した情報を処理することもできます。

PHPはガードマンのような働きをして種類のウェブページのセキュリティを確保します。ウェブサイト開発者は、ユーザがコンテンツを閲覧する前にユーザ名とパスワードを要求する機能を持つウェブ・ページを作成できます。また、PHPは、データベースと連携することもできるので、情報を格納および抽出することができます。とても優秀だと思いませんか?

A New Tool Offers a Little Help with Regular Expressions

without comments

Regular expressions are a powerful programming tool, and the best way to solve many problems, but few people would call them a delight to use. Trying to tune a regex to match exactly the string you want can be a lengthy undertaking.

A new web-based tool aims to help with the process. Enter a text string into txt2re and its backend code (which seems to be antiquated PHP 3, judging by the file extension?) parses the string and proposes an array of regular expressions that match it and its various sub-elements. It recognizes certain string patterns, like state abbreviations and domain names.

Why PHP?

Yeah, why PHP?

For one, its fast on web sites. Since it is embedded in HTML code, it will only take a short time to process and load a webpage. PHP is also easy to use. The syntax is relatively simple and quite easy to understand. Even non-programmers can understand and use them. Next, it is versatile. It can run on most of the operating systems like Windows, Mac, OS, and even some varieties of Unix.

One more thing, PHP is free. Its an open source programming language so you dont need to buy anything. All you need is to go the .

Careers in PHP

without comments

small__2681686220So you know PHP, and you’re not afraid to use it. Congratulations! This already puts you a step ahead so many people in the job market. Can you make a career with your PHP knowledge?

Well, at present, it’s a yes and a no. There are two paths you can elect to take: the freelancer path, or the employed-by-a-big-company path. Let’s look at both.

As a more conventional approach, knowing PHP makes you employable by big Fortune 500 companies. While the pay can indeed be good, there may be more demanded of you. Aside from the conventions and obligations that come with a desk job, you may also need to learn other programming languages.

As a freelancer, however, the workload may not be as heavy. Be aware, though, that the pay may not be very big, and most jobs will be contractual. It will be a big help to keep in touch with a network of freelancers to help you out and that you can help them in return.

Keeping it Clean

without comments

Many experts say it again and again, to keep your pages consistent so your users do get the feel of professionalism and hard work that was placed into making your page. With the web and design becoming easier and easier it tends to slip the people making them that consistency is one of the factors that makes a web page great and one that is sure to keep users coming back.

Inconsistent design makes pages look gaudy and sways possible re-visits from happening. With the incursion of social media and other web components such as widgets that clutter up the place it makes for one messy page indeed. Keep it clean and organized, besides you end up having to weave through the clutter in the event of problems as you try to fix them.

Why PHP? 3

without comments

php2.jpg

What more benefits of using PHP? Cant the list be longer? Okay, okay Im getting to it.

PHP is customizable. Again, a nod to its being open source. That fact allows programmers access to core elements of the language (to the point of letting them extend the language) to modify the PHP software as needed to suit their own needs. This way, PHP softwares are always getting improvements. Imagine, a thousand of programmers working on the PHP code making the program dynamic just perfect for the constantly changing Web.

Whew. Is that it? The last three posts are just the base, and more of the icing on the next posts.

How XP benefits the customer

without comments

cd
XP or Extreme Programming is a software that includes the main aspects of software development such as specification, design, development and testing. It also addresses communication and planning as well as code management.

To put it straight, XP deals with the whole progress phase from the first stage through the testing, release and further development. This application is suited for projects that require speed or those which are bound to change during the duration of the project. With this, the client is benefited because he is likely to get more input. XP likewise promotes a dynamic association between everyone involved in the conceptualization of the whole process.

PHP – Now More Multitasker-Friendly

without comments

medium_3071055422Are you an incorrigible, incurable, hopeless case of a multi-tasker? I know I am. Multitaskers seem to want to get everything done all at the same time, and thus subject themselves – and their computer, smart phone, a combination of both, or even double of any, as in the picture – to dozens of opened web pages, a long tray of pinned web pages, and so. Much. Stress. You might be multitasking too much if you end up forgetting just why you kept certain web pages open or pinned, your computer develops this habit of hanging too frequently lately, or even your CPU start getting hot enough to fry an egg. (Although really, we don’t suggest you even try proving the last option. Seriously.)

Now, if you’re working on a network and unleashing your propensity to multitask on a network computer, you may notice that this one can specially withstand the stress you put it through. You can thank the combined effort of PHP and FastCGI for that. It keeps your server from crashing when you have lots of web pages up.

PHP 5.2.8 is released!

without comments


PHP 5.2.7. is on its way out but 5.2.8. is on its way in!

Due to a security bug found in the PHP 5.2.7 release, it has been removed from distribution. The bug affects configurations where magic_quotes_gpc is enabled, because it remains off even when set to on. In the meantime, use PHP 5.2.6 until PHP 5.2.8 is later released.

The PHP Development Team would like to announce the immediate availability of PHP 5.2.8. This release addresses a regression introduced by 5.2.7 in regard to the magic_quotes functionality, which was broken by an incorrect fix to the filter extension. All users who have upgraded to 5.2.7 are encouraged to upgrade to this release. Alternatively you can apply a work-around for the bug by changing “filter.default_flags=0″ in php.ini.

Good thing the previous version was taken out then.
