p. Dr. Dobbs Journal has posted a new “podcast”:http://www.ddj.com/dept/lightlang/197005761 featuring Jon Erickson talking to Andi Gutmans, CTO of Zend Technologies, Inc. (You remember Zend, they pay the bills here at DevZone)
p. In this 5 minute podcast, Jon and Andi talk about a wide variety of topics. They touch on PHP Scalability, Web Services, “Zend Framework”:http://framework.zend.com and how “Zend”:http://www.zend.com implemented the Lucene search engine in PHP.
p. One topic of interest they discuss is “BIRT”:http://www.actuate.com/products/java-reporting-development/web-reporting-actuate-birt/index.asp from “Accuate”:http://www.actuate.com/products/java-reporting-development/web-reporting-actuate-birt/index.asp. BIRT (Business Intelligence and Reporting Tool) is a reporting tool and the runtime comes integrated in the newly release Zend Platform.
p. It’s a short podcast but an interesting one. Take a few minutes, prop your feet up on your desk and give a listen.
