April 2014 php[architect] Magazine Released – Major Players

Posted by on April 23, 2014

It’s spring, and (here in the U.S.) the Majors are starting up! In sports, we all have our favorites- the ones we love, and the ones we love to hate. In PHP, we have the similar players- Drupal, WordPress, and Yii Framework (to name a few). Love them or hate them, you can’t deny that they’re Major Players! We have a lot of ground to cover this month:

  • Drupal’s a beast; there’s no denying it. There’s also no denying its extreme utility. Oscar Merida will help show you how to “Programmatically Control Drupal”.
  • Yii Framework 2.0 is soon to be out of Alpha. Philip Moorjani will introduce you to the benefits of this gem of a framework.
  • Matthew Setter will show you how easy it can be to contribute and help you to “Get Started with”.
  • Do you know 10 ways to make WordPress faster? Jason McCreary will show you 21 ways to make it fly!
  • Dirk Merkel talks “Advanced Authentication” in Laravel.
  • Matthew Setter is back to help you “Fly with Phalcon”.
  • Our Confident Coder, Aaron Saray, teaches you, “Take Care of Resources, They Will Take Care of You”.
