  • Teaching Parrot to Say PHP, by Ben Ramsey
    VM by Ben Ramsey International PHP Magazine Issue 01 2005 Jan Feb 2005 From the introduction Several months ago Ben held a conversation with a fellow programmer about the relevance and performance of PHP GTK The fear said he is that PHP GTK is too slow to run robust desktop applications Yet how can this fear be plausible when so many already use PHP for robust Web based applications Ben retorted in his infinite wisdom He went on to exclaim What PHP needs is a Virtual Machine something like the Java Runtime Environment that all end users can easily install to run PHP applications That s why I m placing my bets on Parrot was the astute programmer s reply And thus began Ben s long journey in which he traveled far and wide across the Internet searching for references to Parrot and the rumored project in which PHP is being formulated to run on Parrot In his article Ben takes a speculative look ahead to PHP 6 and the Parrot VM By Ben Ramsey Posted on 10 Dec 2004 PHPCommunity org Policy and Procedure Firefox Ad Runs in NY Times Tweet Vote on Hacker News Please enable JavaScript to

  • Passing the Zend PHP Certification Exam, by Ben Ramsey
    now seem in the distant past The test itself was not altogether difficult and there were no horrific questions on it like those that appear in the Study Guide which led me to believe I would fail Perhaps the least compelling reason to take the test is the cynical idea that such tests prove only one s ability to retain information a great programmer makes use of the resources at hand Google the PHP manual and the mailing lists None of these resources were available during the test so what I was truly tested on was my ability to recall Still certifications have their place and in a business world it looks great on a resume The only problem is that many employers don t know who or what Zend is so the name of the exam means little to them I imagine that a brief description must be provided in the resume to explain what the certification means and I d like to see Zend supply this concise definition of PHP and the Zend certification to its exam participants To inform my company as to what Zend certification means I sent them this description from the Study Guide The Zend PHP Certification formally confirms the recognition of specific abilities and skills acquired and developed by the examinee In other words how predictably is the person likely to perform when applying PHP technology to a business problem Have the examinees reached a predefined minimum standard in both academic and practical experience needed to produce quality work Of course I also had to explain what PHP is I think the description on the PHP Web site is in great need of updating The best description I ve found thus far is on the New York PHP Web site Finally a word

  • Lunch with Patrick and Camden, by Ben Ramsey
    just the other day I was at the Dot Org conference I spoke to Tirza of ifPeople and she said that she s finding it hard to get good PHP developers because all her developers want to program in object oriented languages Is this myth still proliferating I explained that PHP 5 has a completely redesigned object model so that now it can be called a true object oriented language She just smiled a seemingly humoring smile Perhaps she was just humoring me but one thing is for certain she seemed excited to hear about the Zend Certification something she did not know about So my lunch with Patrick and Camden went well Both are PHP programmers and my impression is that Patrick probably has a wealth of knowledge and experience on the subject perhaps even beyond my expertise I don t know what impression I left on them but I suspect that I wasn t exactly what they expected While I love to program and consider myself a fairly good programmer I feel that I m a far better writer than a programmer and I think that I m much better on paper than in person The only thing
