Houston PHP Users Group Monthly Meetup

  • Mar 3, 2011 · 6:00 PM
  • Alert Logic, Inc.


We will do a code heavy session this month to go through best practices in building up your custom framework for web sites and applications. I will show you how I usually build a new project from scratch, including going over versioning control, directory structures, common classes and templating systems.

This should be a fun topic as there will be tons of ways of doing things, so I expect lots of interesting discussions of different tricks and tools that people have created over the years to fit their particular workflow.

COMSYS will be providing Pizza and drinks for us, so join us!

I hope to see you all there,

    I was telling some people about the horrors of variable function names and someone asked how to do it. I am not saying you should ever use this but here is how to do it. $a = 'get_';
    $b = 'set_';
    $c = 'User';
    $d = 'Data'; ${$a.$c.$d} = ${$b.$c.$d} = function($data)
    { echo $data.'<br />';

    $get_UserData('Getting: UserData');
    $set_UserData('Setting: UserData');

    I really enjoyed Joao's presentation. I got more than a few ideas for improving my own code and project setup! I am looking forward to next month.
