25 Years of PHP

A very enlightening talk on PHP and its history. Rasmus Lerdorf thouroughly explains apparent inconsistencies and also explains why they make perfect sense. Get to know the in and outs of PHP and why it’s brilliant in its own way and why it’s so successful to this very day. This is a must-watch for every web software developer!

Symfony

Symfony is one of the most mature PHP Frameworks and many large Webapplications are built on it. Many newer Frameworks utilise and integrate Symfony components. A solid foundation and widespread industry adoption often make it the go-to toolkit for non-trivial projects.


Symfony ist eines der ausgereiftesten PHP Frameworks und wird bei in vielen großen Webapplikationen als Grundlage verwendet. Viele neuere Frameworks bedienen sich im Symfony Angebot und integrieren unterschiedliche Module aus diesem Projekt. Ein solides codefundament und die lang-wärende Etablierung in der IT Fachwelt macht es zu Werkzeugkasten der Wahl für nicht-triviale Projekte.

Dart & Flutter

Normaly I’m not a sucker for new programming languages that pop up seemingly out of nowhere. I was notably skeptical about Ruby and the Rails hype and even with languages that the world needs – such as Rust and Go – I do support them, but don’t jump all over them right away. Dart however I’ve been weary about ever since it showed up on my radar a few years ago. Dart & Flutter weiterlesen

The Essence of Agility

Agile, Agile, Certified Scrum, … BULLSHIT!” – that was the initial title of this post. Good for a splash and effect, but a tad negative, I admit.  So I’ve taken the liberty to update the title to a more positive and meaningful one. Same with the permalink. The rest remains the same. – PR, 2.6.2019

The Agile and Scrum Craze has gotten out of hand. Buzzword driven project managment, bad project/method fits and a few other things are taxing my and many other peoples nerves when we bump into someone looking for a “Certified Scrum Master” or tell us that their 8000 employee corporation is now migrating to “Agile” and “Scrum”. Or when some webshop thinks “Agile” is some nown, and a nown that’s nothing other for a fancy words disguising total chaos and labeling it planned. The Essence of Agility weiterlesen

Yii Framework

Yii is one of the lesser known PHP Frameworks, but it has been around for quite some time and is notably popular with professional developers who hate faffing about when building web applications. It’s a sort-of secret tip and go-to toolkit for those who hate the shoddy and sub-par data- and application models of WordPress, Drupal and the likes. It is also the foundation of the professional Craft CMS. Yii Framework weiterlesen

The JAMStack Approach

Tearing ties between frontend and backend apart, going headless or at least ‘headlose’, brazenly moving dynamic logic to the client and decoupling as much as possible into disparate microservices. This probably is the way to go forward in the 2020ies for web content. One degraded WordPress project to many has me seriously looking into this sort of thing now. The JAMStack Approach weiterlesen
