p. Ok, Monday has come and gone. The reality of the work week is settling in and we are all “counting ’em down” till Friday. Here’s a quickie to help you fill that void between Sunday night and Friday afternoon. Andreas Gohr has posted a quick tutorial on how to stitch together .WAV files. Click on inside and I’ll dig up the URL.
p. I found a cool tutorial this morning over at webcheatsheet.com titled “PHP: Dynamic Image Generation”. I’ll trade you a click for the URL.
Sebastian Bergmann is more than just a great photographer. In his spare time he writes cood. I got an email from him this morning announcing version 3 of his PHPUnit project. Click on inside and I’ll share it with you.
p. anyexample.com, a site that I can’t honestly say I’ve ever visited before, has just posted a good tutorial on “PHP Convert RGB from/to HTML hex color”. Come on inside, let’s take a peek at it.
p. Hey, our buddies over at Nexen.net have released the September numbers. Fire up those browsers people, we’ve got things to talk about.
p. Here is more catch-up from announcements preceding this past weekend’s “Hack Day” at Yahoo. Flickr now supports JSON or serialized PHP responses. This one is a short one but interesting to anyone doing PHP Mashups.
p. Nope, not the creepy crawly kind that give you all kinds of nastiness, the PHP kind. Mau, one of the co-moderators over at youngcoders.com gives a good description of TICKS and some sample code to boot. Click through for the magic URL.
p. When most of us think of PHP, we think of developing for the web. In most cases we will be using a LAMP-based server setup, with our favorite web scripting language contributing the P. In most cases, the M is filled in with MySQL, although PHP does include support for several other database systems. Is a full-blown database server even necessary for most PHP applications? What about a data-driven website like a blog or a simple family photo album or message board? In these and may other cases, the small, simple, and extremely powerful SQLite may be all you need. Let’s take SQLite out for a test drive and see how it performs, find some of the quirks you might run in to, and how to get the most use out of it.
