Tag: zend framework

oh, yeah, zendcon...

I don't know why I haven't blogged this sooner, but, yes, I'll be speaking once again at ZendCon:

I'll be presenting a number of times:

  • On Monday, I join Sebastian Bergmann and Mike Naberezny in a full-day tutorial session on PHP Development Best Practices and Unit Testing. This expands on what Mike and I did last year, and will more heavily emphasize the role of testing in the development process — arguably the most important best practice you can adopt.
  • On Tuesday monrning, I'll present a Zend Framework MVC Quick Start. This talk is based on a webinar I recently gave for Zend, and covers the various pieces of the MVC layer in Zend Framework.
  • Tuesday evening, I'll present an Unconference session on Ajax-enabling your Zend Framework controllers. I don't know yet if I'll need the whole hour, but I can probably fill it up with some examples of decorating your apps with AJAX.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Zend Framework MVC Webinar posted

Last Wednesday, I presented a webinar for Zend entitled "MVC applications with Zend Framework". We had more than 50 attendees, most of whom stayed on the whole time. For those of you who attended, thanks for the great questions and comments.

If you would like to view the webinar, download the slides, or download the example code (a hello world app), visit the Zend.com Webinar page and look for the presentation; as of today, it's the first one on the list, but that will change as more webinars are presented.

NYPHP Zend Framework Presentation

This past Wednesday, Zend's Chief Marketing Officer, Mark de Visser, and myself joined the NYPHP group for a special event meeting. Mark presented information on Zend's development stack and toolset (which I entirely missed, as I was still in transit), and I came in to give an overview of Zend Framework.

There were some great questions, and nice discussions following the event. If you live in New York and do PHP for a living, and haven't attended, you should; if you're ever visiting the area, see if you can attend a meeting!

Here are the slides. They're done using S5, a browser-based slideshow system. Simply unzip and double-click on index.html to start viewing.
