  • Zend Framework on Ning, by Ben Ramsey
    everyday people with no design or development skills to get their own copy of real working social web applications and adapt them for any need or niche But that s not all Everything running on Ning is 100 programmable This means web designers developers or adventurous amateurs can dive into any App or feature running on Ning and change it Now on to the good stuff I ve set up a fully functional application using the Zend Framework on Ning Thus the application structure URL mapping rules and bootstrap file are all in place and working All you need to do is clone the app and get to work on building your Zend Framework application on Ning I had to make a few slight modifications to the Zend Framework mostly with respect to SERVER REQUEST URI but those are noted in the notes I provide on the Zend Framework Ning site So go to the Zend Framework Ning site now and get started playing with the Zend Framework and Ning NOTE Ning is running PHP 5 0 4 so there may be some parts of the Zend Framework that do not work since the ZF requires PHP 5 1 4

  • PHP Appalachia Reminder, by Ben Ramsey
    site asking for topics of interest We want to compile a list of discussion topics so that we can organize when discussions will take place This way no one is left out of a discussion they want to participate in and missed simply because they were off hiking tubing or gambling at the casino You can send an e mail to me and Elizabeth for topic ideas info at phpappalachia dot org or simply leave a comment on the post On the Importance of Early Registration for Sponsorships The following is somewhat of a personal rant and isn t meant to reflect the feelings of Elizabeth Naramore or anyone else affiliated with PHP Appalachia It s the age old question of the chicken and the egg You can t get sponsors without a critical mass of registered attendees You can t get registered attendees without sponsorship What about grassroots campaigns you ask Well grassroots campaigns work often because there are enough people passionate about the issue event to spread the word and to commit themselves to sign on early there s that and there s often a lot of money invested While we don t need a lot of money to run PHP Appalachia in fact we really only need the registration fees to cover the cost of t shirts we would like to offer some other accomodations to our attendees These include free wifi currently there is a daily fee per person free transportation from the airport AVL only to the campground in the form of passenger vans namebadges and lanyards etc We have had some sponsorship interest but sponsors want to know numbers and we don t yet have the numbers to appeal to sponsors So here is my plea we need people as excited and passionate about

  • Acceptable Rates for PHP Programmers?, by Ben Ramsey
    programmers I recommended that PHP programmers receive pay comparable to Java programmers To another person I recommended that as a freelancer he not accept a job for any less than a specific rate comparable to that of Java programmers I want to see PHP programmers paid well for the work they do Let s face it anyone can call themselves a PHP programmer but not everyone programs in PHP well You should be paid a competitive rate for your skills as an excellent PHP programmer However the problem with paying a PHP programmer occurs when there is a market full of programmers who will work for peanuts so everyone hires them Often these are college students or programmers right out of college but I know of one Java programmer with no prior experience who was hired right after graduation for 90K a year What a drastic difference in the market view between PHP and Java programmers After all why pay more when you can pay less right Wrong If someone is charging a lower than standard rate it s likely a red flag that they don t know what they re doing and you ll end up wasting money on
