RESTful web services in PHP, Database Access with PDO, Drupal and other Misc.


I've been wanting to take a closer look at REST web services built in PHP for a while.

We'll also look to see how a client can use these also, and how to build client.

This could probably take 5 meetings, but we'll do an overview and some Code.

SLIM and other frameworks, look pretty interesting


PHP's PDO api for database access

[ I haven't used it much, having more gotten comfortable with PEAR::MDB2 ]

I'll do an overview, unless someone more experienced wants to do a short presentation.




Current project, site showcases,

could all be on the table too.


I.C.Stars is in a new place, and I thank them for inviting us and being a gracious host !  The projector and WiFi will be great to use. 


This was scheduled in conflict with a few other meetups, of interest, but I thought LAMP was more important.  I'd like to get RSVP's in early, so I'll know what our count is. 

See you all there [first of many for 2013];  Looking forward to seeing you; sharing in tech.

    This is an awesome topic that will definetly be multi-part. My exploration into this let me to Slim, Grizzle, Recess and more (on the server-side) and the client side is even more awesome !: backbone, spine, knockout. These are client-side MVC frameworks with persistence achieved through local storage or easy integration with REST web-services linking to back-end. Much much more to come!
