Objects for the masses
PHP Quebec 2009
Wed, 4th March 2009, 150min
Montreal, Canada
PHP has become an extremely powerful web development platform, and since PHP 5 it supports a pretty good and capable object model. This allowed the design of high quality Frameworks such as the eZ components or the Zend Framework. But before you can start using them, you might want to learn a bit more about OOP. This tutorial is an in depth introduction to object oriented and pattern based programming using PHP 5. You will learn everything necessary to write your own cutting edge components and applications - and of course how to use and extend components from other people or companies. You will learn how and when to use objects as well as when not to use them. And of course we don't stop before we have heard about itertors.

PHP Code Camp
International PHP Conference 2007
Mon, 5th November 2007, 120min
Frankfurt, Germany

For the first time, Marcus Böger and further IT-experts are going to lead the PHP Code Camp. The Code Camp starts right after the Power Workshops on Nov. 5 at 4.30 p.m. and ends around 9 p.m.. To leave nothing to be desired we are going to take liberties with closing time. Register in time as attendance is limited to 35 persons. And don't forget to bring your laptop!

Many Users today rely on PHP for all kinds of web applications. However, there are legacy systems and others unequaled by PHP. This is excactly where our adventure begins. During the Code Camp, we are first going to discuss PHP basics from the structure of extensions to sample functions. That part should not exceed one hour. Then we are going to deal with object orientation by studying an example of a complete, implemented extension - a plain and simple extension with nothing that complicates the code.

Delicious pizza and beer will accompany the subsequent discussions and remaining questions will be answered. You might want to test new ideas? IT-profs Marcus Börger and Johannes Schlüter are going to provide assistance. Until the end of the day you will be able to write the functions that you always have missed and to install your company's backend like nobody else does. Last but not least, core developers will perform live coding. Big enough displays will allow for a good sight.

PHP Extension Writing
Zend PHP Conference 2007

Burlingame, California, USA

PHP has reached a wide range of users and today suits any kind of web application. However, from time to time there is a legacy system or private system you cannot reach from within PHP. This is where our adventure starts. PHP is one of the easiest systems to interface with and to develop extensions for. Yet the extension API is complex in that you need a complete understanding of the PHP life cycle, refcounting, and other issues that go way beyond memory management to write a really good extension. In this full day tutorial, 3 of the most active core developers of PHP - Marcus Boerger, Wez Furlong, and Sara Golemon - will share their knowledge and get you started at coding right away. The tutorial will give you an in depth understanding of the PHP engine and its runtime. It will also cover streams, objects, iterators and give you a heads up on upcoming unicode support in PHP 6. All this will be done by explaining a demo extension that you can experiment with yourself. You, of course, should have a background in C coding and also have a need to do something that PHP today cannot do or doesn't allow you to do in the way you like.

PHP is developing quite fast, so are your applications. And most often there is no time for complex testing using overbloated test frameworks like unit testing and whatnot. On the other hand, tests are necessary to get an application - as well as PHP itself - stable and secure. This tutorial will introduce the phpt test script - yes, a single test script written in PHP. Easy enough for everyone to use. This is also the easiest way to help develop PHP. After you got started with testing, the tutorial will introduce the more complex test suits that offer a bunch of nice interactions that make the handling of your test suite much easier.

PHP can do a lot, but it can't do it all. Sometimes you need access to a third-party library, or you need to speed up some code, or you just want to do something with the language that no one's thought of before. This half-day workshop will take you through a detailed look at the internals of PHP and introduce you to its rich, but daunting extension API. Workshop will begin with attendees building a simple ready-made extension skeleton. The base portions of the API will be explored by adding pieces to this base extension until simple variables, memory management, request lifecycles, and function implementations have been covered. From here audience interest will direct the topic of choice (e.g: Arrays, Resources, Objects, Itterators, Streams, PDO Drivers, Configuration/Linking, etc).

If you think that OOP in PHP 5 is nothing more than a handful of new keywords and passing objects by reference, you need to attend this tutorial!

Presented by Marcus Boerger, the architect of the Standard PHP Library (SPL), this three-hour seminar examines the new object-oriented architecture of PHP 5 in depth, and shows you how to take advantage of some of the new advanced features, such as:

  • Making your objects accessible as arrays
  • Trapping foreach
  • Creating your own iterator classes
  • Using just-in-time loading to maximize performance
  • Taking advantage of the new built-in SPL classes
  • And much, much more!

You ever had the feeling that DOM is overkill and you cannot work with SimpleXML because on the one hand it is too simple and on the other hand you still don't get it to work. No problem - XmlReader is the way out. It is much more flexible to use and typically through its enourmous flexibility the much better solution and last but not least by that much easier to apply.

If you got stuck with writing your XML you might try xmlWriter which this session also introduces briefly.

In this tutorial you will learn everything you must know to develop cutting edge object oriented PHP 5 applications. You will learn how and when to use objects as well as when not to use them.

This tutorial gives you an introduction to object oriented and pattern based application development. You will see everything PHP supports in this area starting with standard objects over exceptions to iterators and much more. This all results in an indepth understandng of PHP 5's object model. We will learn about all the language features and all the new extensions that make use of object oriented programming. Namely thses are SPL the Standard PHP Library that gives you objects and interfaces for several basic problems. PDO which is the new way of accessing databases. And of course we will not stop with looking at all the XML extensions. This way you will find yourself able to use PHP 5.1 the right way.

From engine overloading to SPL
PHP|tropics 2005
Fri, 13th May 2005, 90min
Cancun, Mexico

In this talk you will learn all about the magic that sneaked into PHP with the introduction of Zend engine 2. You will learn how to utilize those new techniques and how to benefit from them. This captures the most prominent achievements Iterators and Array overloading as well as semi automatic string conversion, exception handling and other tricks.

After you learned about the basics we will dive into example details to equip you with all the knowledge to take advantage of switching towards PHP 5 and using SPL aka Standard PHP Library. Using this brand new extension gives you functional programming - and having that can be a very great advantage. One of which is being able to create algorithms independent from the data to be able to reuse the algorithm without touching it.

These slides actually contain more then ten additional slides i did not use in the presentation and the slides also refer to those two debug sessions i prepared for other conference sessions on SPL related topics. It is a good idea to use those too since they make a lot of things clearer - since as always the time was to short or the topic to huge to give a detailed introduction on everything.

However these slides contain enough examples that let you easily understand the ideas behind overloading the engine and how SPL hooks on by its interfaces and classes.

This talk is an intoduction to the PHP 5 API focusing on the OO part. Once you listened to it you will be able to write state of the art PHP 5 OO extensions. You will learn:

  • How to create classes
  • How to implement methods and how to build hybrids (function & method)
  • How to create interface (no API yet and not planned in any way)
  • How to provide method visibility
  • How to handle properties correctly
  • How to throw & handle exceptions in extension
  • How to implement interfaces
  • What can be done by overriding default c level object-handlers

You will also learn tricks which are not obviously but which can bring real optimizations. Several of them are already used in PHP extensions and in this talk you will learn what how it all works:

  • Implementing readonly properties with c level functions (ext/dom)
  • Optimized object type detection without using designated API functions
  • Aggregation at C level (possible since PHP 5.1)

Introduction to functional programming using SPL iterators
International PHP Conference 2004
Wed, 10th November 2004, 60min
Frankfurt, Germany

Iterators offer a way to access data elements from a datapool one after another. While this sounds very boring it offers a lot. On the one hand it allows to lazy initialize the data element when they are needed and not when the first element is needed and only for the time the elements are needed and not until the last element is needed. And on the other hand iterators also allow to encapsulate algorithmns. That means they bring the functional paradigm to PHP. In this talk you will learn how to utilize iterators and how to stick them together like a puzzle in order to separate different algorithm steps to use multiple algorithms for the same data. For example this allows to apply multiple independent filters to the same data. Finally this talk will show you some iterator implemented algorithms from the PHP 5 builtin SPL extension.

PHP meets UML
LinuxTag 2004
Sat, 26th June 2004, 60min
Karlsruhe, Germany

Mit Version 5 erreicht PHP einen Zustand der die Benutzung in allen Bereichen erlaubt. Allem Vorran nach wie vor mit Hinblick auf Webanwendungen. Um dies zu erreichen wurde in PHP 5 die Objektorientierung massiv verbessert bzw. neu implementiert. Zudem kommt PHP 5 mit einigen neuen Extensions daher, die alle im Web Umfeld wichtigen Techniken wie SOAP abdecken. Zusammen mit Tools wie dem Sybase Powerdesigner ergibt sich so die Möglichkeit automatisch aus UML heraus PHP 5 Code zu erzeugen. In diesem Talk sollen die Möglichkeiten des Zusammenspiels aus PHP 5 und Sybase Powerdesigner vorgestellt werden. Dazu wird zum einen tatsächlich PHP Code aus UML erzeugt und kurz aufgezeigt wie das funktioniert. Und zum Anderen wird aufgezeigt was mit dem Gespann und etwas Nacharbeit noch machbar ist, so zum Beispiel das automatische Erzeugen von Dataccess Klassen für den Zugiff auf Relationale Datenbanken.

Die Verwendung des High End Produktes Sybase Powerdesigners soll hierbei ausdrücklich die Möglichkeiten von PHP 5 für Enterprise Anwendungen unterstreichen.

PHP 5 Object Oriented Extensions
International PHP Conference 2004 Spring edition
Wed, 5th May 2004, 60min
Amsterdam, Netherlands

In this session you will learn how to implement an object oriented PHP 5 extension by example of a real class you can experiment with. The session will capture everything that you must know to be able to implement your own classes. By being able to do so you can heavily improove the efficency of your applications - provided you have some expirience writing c code.

Introduction to Iterators
International PHP Conference 2004 Spring edition
Tue, 4th May 2004, 60min
Amsterdam, Netherlands

Iterators are an easy programming pattern that are mainly used for lazy initialization of collectable data to save memory usage. In this session you will learn the basics of iterators as implemented in PHP 5. After that you will learn about extension SPL aka Standard PHP Library which provides you with a set of more complex iterator based algorithmns and how to take your advantage from them. Since other extension implement iterators too this session enables you to do a lot of laziness with data stored in XML or relational databases.

PHP 5 - A Tutorial
Entwicklertage 2004
Mon, 9th February 2004, 360min
Frankfurt, Germany

Mit PHP eröffnet sich die Welt der dynamischen Webseiten. PHP unterstützt Sie dabei mit einer schier endlosen Anzahl von Funktinalitäten. In zwei Tagen wird sich Ihnen diese Welt eröffnen. Das ermöglicht es Ihnen schnell und einfach zum Ziel zu kommen. Doch bringt es der Funktionsumfang auch mit sich, dass er beherrscht und richtig eingesetzt werden will. Darum sollen in den zwei Tagen nicht nur einfache PHP Beispiele analysiert und bearbeitet werden sondern auch das Auge für das Drumherum geöffnet werden. Schliesslich möchte man nicht nur die Daten einer Webseite in einer Datenbank speichern sondern ist auch verpflichtet diese mit gebotener Sicherheit zu behandeln.

Diese zwei Tage widmen sich an Einsteiger, die mit PHP mehr erreichen wollen.

Part 1: General Introduction to PHP 5

PHP 5 is the next iteration of PHP. In this part two of PHP 5's core developers will provide a point by point overview of the changes in PHP 5, and go over how the new infrastructure works. This session will serve as the jumping off point for the 2 full days of PHP 5 tutorials.

Part 2: Using new OO features in PHP 5 scripts

In this part we will review the PHP 4 OO model and introduce the new PHP 5 OO concepts:

  • visibility for properties and methods
  • abstract methods and abstract classes
  • interfaces
  • final methods and classes
  • static properties and methods
  • constants
  • exceptions
  • reflection_api

After you learned about all these new features, their functionality and how to use them for your advantage you will be ready to move from PHP 4 to PHP 5. Indded you will be able to use all the new things in your applications and are ready to learn about the new extensions in the following parts.

Part 3: PHP 5's new extensions

With PHP 5 we will have a lot of new extensions which will all make use of the new OO model.

MySQLi
a new way to connect to MySQL v4 DBs
PDO
the OO way to abstract data handling
PHILI
the next step in PHP imaging
SPL
a set of standard classes
SQLite
turns PHP into a database engine

For each of those new extensions we will explain what they do. We will show some examples that demonstrates the 'benefit' and 'howto' of these extensions.

Part 4: PHP 5 & XML

With PHP 5, XML support in PHP has been completely redone featuring a new backend based on the popular libxml2 library. In this 3 hour session we'll go into the structure of the new XML architecture, and then dive into each component in-depth, comparing it to their PHP 4 counterparts. By the end of this session you'll come away with a good idea of how PHP 5's XML support works and the future of PHP and XML.
