  • PHPNW June 2010

    Tue, 1 Jun 2010, 19:00 in Manchester, United Kingdom

    This month we have a talk entitled "Pratical ORMs" by Juozas Kaziuk─Śnas. With PHP 5 (which came quite some time ago) all the benefits of OOP can now be applied to data access patterns, however still a great portion of PHP applications speak to a database like in PHP 4 years. There is a solution for that and it's called an Object Relational Mapping (ORM) - it will save you developing time, maintaining costs and greatly improve application architecture.

  • PHPNW May 2010

    Tue, 4 May 2010, 19:00 in Manchester, United Kingdom

    This month we have a talk by Lorna Mitchell called "Open Source Your Career". With words like community bandied about, what can the individual gain in professional terms from getting involved in extra-curricular activities? Come and hear tales from someone who has almost accidentally benefitted from her community activities about what drives her to get involved and how this has crossed over into her day job.

  • PHPNW April 2010

    Tue, 6 Apr 2010, 19:00 in Manchester, United Kingdom

    This month we have a talk by Melanie Lewis on Web Services for Consumer Devices. A web service is an API provided by a site that allows a remote application to access data and use functionality without having to 'act like a web browser'. Consumer devices, such as a smart phone, set top box or games console, often do not have a form factor that allows the easy use of an interactive web site but do allow the download of custom applications which use web services provided by such sites.

    Tue, 2 Mar 2010, 19:00 in Manchester, United Kingdom

    This month we have the talk that was meant to be on in January by Rob Mortimer on POG (PHP Object Generator). Rob coded PHP full time for a year in the 90's when PHP 3 was cool and scripts started at the top and ended at the bottom. Since then he has made a move to a sys-admin roll where he continued to use PHP to deliver data capture and other applications for the business using PHP.
