I’m hoping to improve the slides a bit and give this presentation at lots of other places. If any PHP User groups on the west coast would like me to do a presentation about PEAR drop my a line.
If you’d like to give a presentation about PEAR at your local user group also let me know and I’ll give you a tarball of the slides, you just have to agree to give me back your updates .
Due too a last minute change i’ll be at php/works on Wednesday.
I’ll be following the original synopsis for the sessions, but since I haven’t started preparing there might be some slight changes.
Since it was so last minute I won’t be at the entire conference I’m flying into Toronto on tuesday and returning to Phoenix wednesday night, but hopefully I’ll still have a chance to put a face too a lot of PHP developers i’ve only met online.
I was contacted by the Mark Withingon, founder of the Boston PHP Users group today, there looking for someone who could do a presentation about HTML_AJAX for them in November. Now I would love to fly there and help them out, but its not going to happen, so the best I can do try to find someone else.
If your interested let me know and I’ll and get your in touch with Mark. I’ll be doing a similar presentation for my local PHP users group that same month so we should be able to share slides and preparation effort.
I just finished a short presentation for the the Frankfurt PHP users group . I’m not sure thats its the best presentation i’ve ever given since I tried to do mainly a overview of the tech as well as a bit of talk on how it relates to flash.
Might have been easier just to go the normal route and show a bunch of code . Anyhow the technology worked pretty well for the slides but showing web pages didn’t work right at all.
Also HTML_AJAX is approved and the first release has been made, i’ll be getting more docs up shortly.
My slide post about the presentation is actualy backdated to the 23, I forgot to future date it when I started things and now things are using the link. But anyhow there is no magic the webcast was today and it went well.
I couple questions I want to answer in more detail are:
What are some PHP AJAX toolits?
- JPSpan – OO Api Sync and ASync mode
- SAJAX – Procedural Api ASync Only? multi-language support
- JSRS – Async only, uses IFrames, multi-language suspport
- SRSS Sync Only, Content Focused
If anyone knows of any other AJAX toolkits for PHP let me know, there are also lots of JS toolkits that don’t handle data serialization but could be used to grab content from a php server.
What browsers does JPSpan support?
There is a list on the wiki.
Why don’t you just use SOAP?
What are some example PHP apps using AJAX?
I’m going to need some help to answer this one, I know there are lots of projects that have stuff implemented in CVS but I don’t know of much that is released.
What are the security considerations?
Well beides normal XSS implications im not to sure. As far as I know if you make sure to escape any user data as needed you should be ok, since the normal browser security model should take care of the rest. Please leave a post if you’ve found any news about this.
Where are the slides, and will this session be available latter?
The slides are here on my blog, php|arch will have a recording of the session up soon.
There were a number of other questions which I don’t remember anymore, but i’ll be sure to answer any other questions about AJAX that people have.
Also my employer is looking to hire some developers so if your interested in working with open source PHP doing some exciting stuff (lots of AJAX) make sure to send in a resume, were only accepting them until the 30th.
If your coming here from the php|arch webcast, welcome, and from anywhere else too.
It looks like the presentation server had some sort of outage, during the question and answer period, we recovered quicly and though we lost about a hundred people, I think most people got there questions answered.
If you have an more questions feel free to post them here.
The slides are available online, these are slightly different then the version in the presentation, but the content is the same, they’ve just had a little less editing.
The example application is also online.
I’ll be presenting an updated version of the presentation I gave last night at AzPHP as a free webcast for php|architect on May 26th. The major change will be a new technical introduction centered around getting you started with JPSpan and building a simple widget.
The live talk will begin at 1:00 PM EST (10 AM PST, 6PM GMT), space is limited so if your interested you’ll want to sign up today.
The presentation went pretty good tonight, the turnout was pretty good, lots of new faces.
I kept dropping the wireless connection which didn’t help with showing sample apps, but we recovered pretty well. Anyhow the slides are up take a look, any feedback would be appreciated since i’ll be giving an updated version in another month or so.
I’m presenting at AzPHP tomorrow at 7. I’ll be running an object oriented design workshop. Will be doing an Object Oriented Design Workshop walking through a small project (expense reporting) and covering design and implementation decisions.
I’ll have some notes and basic slides linked from here some time before the meeting tomorrow.
Jason Sweat has slides from a presentation titled “Documenting PHP Applications” that he gave at PHP|Works in Toronto. I wish I could have seen the presentation, the slides are great.
If your new to phpDocumentor reading the slides is a great place to start. He does a great job of showing off the basic features, and gives some nice examples of the code -> document path. Made me feel like Jason knows more about phpDocumentor then me .
On a slightly related note, there are some people having problems running phpDocumentor on OSX if someone runs it and would be willing to help debug, I’d be greatful.
The presentation last night went pretty well. I gave my short presentation, (the simple slides are up) using the phpDocumentor Manual for complex examples and showing some of the possibilities. Then we talked a bit about the fun stuff coming in php5. It looks like simpleXML will be one of the big php5 features that makes it worth switching.
I’ll be giving the presentation at my local PHP users group, AzPHP, tonight. The topic will be “an Introduction to phpDocumentor” i’ll be going through a number of hello world type examples, and then showing some of the more complex functionality by looking at some of the ways phpDocumentor documents itself. I’ll also be answering any questions that people might have.
The meeting starts at 7pm at Walts TV in Tempe.
The AzPHP website has more details and a map.
