PHP: Using Adobe Flex and Adobe AIR with PHP and Zend Framework
CubeSpace [ *sniff* out of business 12 June 2009]

Rich Internet applications (RIAs) are everywhere. With Web businesses like Google and Yahoo! and brick and mortar companies like Harley Davidson and Sherwin Williams embracing RIAs for their online presence, the media buzz is giving way to the reality of a better Internet.

Adobe has recently contributed AMF support to the Zend Framework, allowing PHP developers to easily build Rich Internet Applications using Flex and Adobe AIR that interact with a PHP backend.

Ryan Stewart, a technical evangelist with Adobe, will give an introduction to Adobe Flex and Adobe AIR, and will walk through how to create a Flex application powered by PHP and the Zend Framework. Working with Zend Studio for Eclipse, and Flex Builder (an Eclipse plugin), Ryan will demonstrate how to build, debug and deploy applications built with Adobe Flex, and how to have these same applications run on the desktop using the Adobe AIR runtime.

With this knowledge, developers will be able to easily build rich Internet applications that combine data from PHP and rich media like audio and video into a compelling application.

Here's what we've got on the agenda:

  1. "A Case Study in Drupal 7: Care Network by Elite Care" presented by Manuel Mejia

Want to leverage the power of Drupal to address your own specific niche industry or market? Learn how this can be accomplished by examining a real-world case study of the "Care Network"—a Drupal distribution that assists staff and family members in creating "Communities of Care" for elderly and disabled people. Built on Drupal 7, the Care Network helps provision services, monitor community residents, and facilitate social interaction.

In particular, Manuel will discuss unique features of the project including real-time location tracking of all individuals on campus, programable alerts using a wide array of sensors, web enabled recording of daily notes and services, and touch screen monitors used to input and display this information. He'll also touch upon the strengths of Drupal as an application platform and how anyone can extend Drupal 7 core and contributed modules to fit their unique project requirements and needs.

  1. "Building a Social Network in Drupal" presented by Ben Kaplan

Have you ever wanted to build your own social network? Or maybe add some cool social networking features to your existing website? In this presentation, Ben will demo some of the latest features of the User Relationships (http://drupal.org/project/user_relationships) and Private Message (http://drupal.org/project/privatemsg) modules—two modules he's worked on that allow you to replicate many features of popular social networks.

And what if you also want to leverage the power of other third-party social networks like Facebook, Twitter, or MySpace? Ben will demo the newest features of the Janrain Engage (http://drupal.org/project/rpx) module, including the ability to authenticate with other social networks, map user data from these networks, share content simultaneously across networks, and integrate with popular Drupal modules like Rules and Views.

Finally, here are the meeting details:

Date: Wednesday, April 13

Time: 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. (after the meeting, we head to Lucky Lab for drinks and conversation!)

Everything You Wanted to Know About Joomla! Content Construction Kits (CCKs), but where afraid to ask.

What is a content construction kit? Which one should I use? What are the differences between K2, jSeblod, Zoo, and FlexiContent, the four most popular CCKs in use today. How difficult is a CCK to learn and use? What affect will a CCK have on my template or design?

In our Joomla content construction kit presentation we are going to show you. The presentation will cover what a CCK is and why you may want to use one. We'll walk through some feature comparisons of the top four CCKs in use today to help you in choosing the right one. Discuss some of the pros and cons when implementing a CCK, like how the new content affects your templates and layouts. We'll take a sneak peek at some new CCK beta's for Joomla 1.6 and end with a discussion on what features may still be missing in the Joomla core versus a content construction kit.

What You’ll Learn

  • What is a CCK
  • CCK features vs Joomla 1.5 content construction (the S.C.A.M)
  • Comparison chart of K2, jSeblod, Zoo, and FlexiContent
  • Quick administrative back end look at each.
  • Discuss which tie into Joomla's com_component and which don't effecting module creation.
  • A quick look at Joomla 1.6 and the new CCK beta.

OCCA Meeting - Tuesday, May 31, 2011
Red Lion Hotel Portland - Convention Center

Scott Hanselman will be presenting WebMatrix, a new free tool from Microsoft that allows you to create, customize and publish websites that can grow with you, from design and installation to deployment and maintenance. It is one of the simplest tools for creating web sites that has come along in a long, long time. To get started you can select an application from the built-in gallery, containing such applications as DotNetNuke, Umbraco, WordPress, Drupal or Joomla. Or you can create your own masterpiece from scratch, written in either PHP or ASP.Net.

Scott has made presentations to the OCCA before, and has always been well received and appreciated.

Scott Hanselman works out of his home office for Microsoft as a Principal Program Manager, aiming to spread good information about developing software, usually on the Microsoft stack. Before this, for over 6 years, he was the Chief Architect at Corillian Corporation, now a part of Checkfree. He was also involved in a few Microsoft Developer things for many years like the MVP and RD programs and he'll speak about computers (and other passions) whenever someone will listen.

Here's what we've got on the agenda:

1. "A Million Pageviews an Hour: Extreme Drupal Performance" presented by Aaron Longwell

The Kentucky Derby is the most watched horse racing event in the world. It's frequently called "the most exciting two minutes in sports," and is nationally televised on 3 different networks and simulcast worldwide. All that excitement results in www.kentuckyderby.com, the race's official Drupal-powered web site receiving more than 1 million page views in less than an hour.

Presented by Aaron Longwell, Chief Technologist at Culture Foundry, this presentation will cover the hardware, software, Drupal modifications and extensions that enabled the site to serve every one of those pages with sub-200ms response times. In particular, Aaron's talk will discuss helpful Drupal modules, Varnish, HTTP in-browser caching, load balancing, redundancy, load testing, Pressflow, Amazon Web Services, and Capistrano--and how each played a part in the Kentucky Derby site.

Even small sites with little traffic can benefit from many of the techniques and technologies Aaron will be discussing. The talk will be relatively technical in nature (there will even be a bit of code) but even non-developers should learn something about the principles behind super high performance web sites.

2. "Location + Maps: Making it Actually Work" presented by Katrin Silvius

In her recent work, Katrin Silvius, senior web developer at One Economy, has discovered all sorts of bugs and workarounds necessary to make location and maps work well together in Drupal. Katrin will discuss some of the things she's learned from her work and we'll open up the discussion to other developers about best practices and nagging problems with implementing location and maps in Drupal.

Finally, here are the meeting details:

Mobile Smart Technology MeetUp
Shopigniter Office

Imagine:

Every application, service, and device understands the world you're in, learns your intentions and goals, and has the ability to extend beyond their original program......help users achieve goals faster, more efficient.

Kimera Systems is the first company to bring a network-residing, context specific infrastructure to the market.

It’s available to any developer, today.

Since Google Now and Foursquare’s added context awareness, we decided to announce what we've been working on for the last few years.

It’s based on new, mobile artificial intelligence (AI) technology. We’ve created a service that can assist your device or application in any use case.

Providing an intelligent User eXperience

Context Aware: Constantly adapting to new situations

User priorities and intent drive services

Intelligent distribution to your end-users without using current "app store"-models

Join us Wednesday August 8, 2012 from 6pm to 8pm at ShopIgniter in the Pearl District (Portland) to learn how you can implement this technology in your PHP Web Apps today, to provide a superior user experience over native apps.

We provide the necessities: Pizza, Beer, & Soda!

Limited seating: RSVP today!

Joomla! PDX
McMenamins Backstage Bar, Kimball Room

http://www.joomlapdx.com/events/presentations/33-march-2013-joomla-open-house

We know... You're thinking "OMG, a Joomla Open House!!!!! ... Errrr, wait a minute, what is a Joomla Open House, exactly?"

Great question. In short, it's a gathering of (1) Joomla fanatics, (2) Joomla newbies, (3) Joomla-curious, and (4) others who maybe aren't totally "in love" with Joomla, but who might not mind fooling around a little bit with Joomla if there's beer involved, if you know what we mean. (Okay, actually, we don't even know what we mean by that one.)

What we were thinking was: If you've got a web site and are having some technical difficulties, then come to our open house, bring (1) any Joomla, web development, technical, or philosophical questions you like, no matter how easy or tough they are, (2) your laptops if you want to do some work right then and there (or, we may also project your site up onto the wall and work on it in front of others, if that's cool with you), and (3) your admin usernames/passwords, of course, if you want us to be able to look at your Joomla issues. And, if you have a "service dog," bring him or her along, too -- because, remember, here in Portland, no one ever asks you to verify whether your pooch is or isn't working. Anyway, your humble Joomla in-house experts will then roll up our sleeves and do the best we can to either fix your issue or at least point you in the right direction.

Types of tech difficulties: Actually, we're fairly open-minded here... Bring us any web-development challenge you're having and we're happy to talk about it -- even it it's not 100% Joomla-related. For example, maybe you're having trouble using CSS, or you're facing a user experience challenge, or you don't understand how MySQL works, or you need a little bit of PHP wizardry. Bring it on. We're not saying we'll actually solve your issue right then and there, but we're certain that we're geeky enough to probably give you way too many vague answers and contradictory directions. (On second thought, maybe don't come. ... No, we're kidding; DO come, okay?)

Please join us!

-= The Skinny =-

WHAT? Joomla! Open! House! WHEN? March 14th, 2013 -- 5:45 p.m. to 8-ish / maybe 8:30 / or, like, whenever. WHERE? At Backstage (3702 SE Hawthorne -- just behind the Bagdad Theater in SE PDX). HOW? Oh, you mean how much? It's FREE!! WHY? Because Joomla rocks and all other CMSs are laughably inferior.

Sprint time: 10am until 6pm, both Saturday, January 25 and Sunday, January 26

If you're like some Drupal developers or site builders, you've been telling yourself for months that you should start contributing to Drupal core. This sprint is your chance to get started with in-person training and mentoring from friendly, experienced core contributors. It's also a great way to start becoming familiar with Drupal 8.

If you've already started to work on core, come meet other contributors, hang out in person, and work on manageable tasks in the Drupal core queue. The goal is to help you help with core.

PDX PHP - Demystifying TDD & 5 Algorithms Every Web Developer Can Use and Understand

Join us for an evening of two talks at MotoSport!

John Kelly will give a hands on talk on demystifying Test-Driven Development (TDD). We're going to go through a real example that isn't the "easy" example you'll find in books. We'll go over why, as well as how to implement TDD in your development workflow.

Also...

Sheldon Kreger will share "5 Algorithms Every Web Developer Can Use and Understand." Although we don't often implement algorithms in our work, there are several of them which can prove to be useful in our applications. Content recommendations, search engines, and natural language processing are just a few examples of algorithms leveraged online. Sheldon will describe the basic mathematics behind the scenes, and show some demonstrations using the Algorithmia API (https://algorithmia.com) to access advanced algorithms from within PHP applications, including Wordpress and Drupal.

Food and drink will be provided.

There will be food, give-a-ways (elePHPants) and a great time getting to know your fabulous PHP Community!

6:30 - We'll start off with Pizza and networking at 6:30

6:45 - 7:45 - Move into the presentation on Generators, by Korvin Szanto

Memory usage is something that we as developers have to be aware of. Ever debugging a memory issue and find that your once small dataset has ballooned out of proportion? And instead of dealing with the issue, you opt for upping the memory limit? Iterators can be the answer but they require a lot of code and can be very difficult to understand at a glance. Thankfully since PHP 5.5 Generators help us create and manage what would be complex iterators with simple syntax sugar. In this talk I will go over some of the ways you can implement generators and cure your memory bloat.


7:45 - Prizes

7:45 - 8:30 - Hack and Help. Have a chance to try out Generators for yourself, or bring your own project and get some help from the community.

Scope is a major factor in any application, from programing scope to project scope, and communication is key. We will discuss different application scopes including global, functional, class, and package scope. From there we will show how everything ties together with communication of the project itself. Why and how to stay on top of project scope and how that can make or break the final outcome.

There will be food, give-a-ways (elephpants), and a great time to network with the fabulous PHP Community!

This month we will have a special guest speaker from Las Vegas: 

Adam Englander is an Engineer, Speaker, and Author with 30 years of experience in building business applications. He has been an outspoken evangelist of PHP during what he calls “The PHP Renaissance”. Adam is a strong believer in the power of strong developer communities. He is a actively involved in the Las Vegas technical community and the Founder of PHP Vegas. Always looking to push the boundaries of what is possible with PHP, Adam has been working to expose the PHP community at large to IoT and asynchronous programming. He also advocates building better applications today by building well tested applications that are cryptography secure.

The Red Team is Coming!

The Red Team, hackers, criminal organizations, and nation states, are a constant threat. The systems we build are the targets. We need to understand the human collateral that hangs in the balance. We embrace methodologies to write better code and make our lives better. They do nothing for the rest of humanity that is directly affected by security vulnerabilities we introduce. In this presentation, I will put a human face on the users of our software. I will challenge you to think in terms of flesh and blood rather than ones and zeros. We are all the Blue Team. We protect the rest of humanity. Join me in the fight. The Red Team is coming!

PDX PHP - Using the Null Object Pattern
ImpactFlow

Food, give-a-ways, speakers and a great time to network with the fabulous PHP Community!

Using the Null Object Pattern

When you develop OO PHP applications, you'll eventually get the error message "PHP Notice: Trying to get property of non-object". You can add a conditional to check if an object is null. There is however a better way. Null Object Pattern is a design pattern that helps you to simplify your application logic. The Null Object patthern removes the need to check for an object vs null by using Polymorphism. I'll demonstrate how it works with generic PHP code, and how you can apply it to work with database results.


Presented by Andrew Woods


Andrew Woods is a seasoned Web Developer, and a command line aficionado. He's been making websites since 1999. He organizes the Seattle PHP User Group (@seaphp) and Pacific Northwest PHP conference (@pnwphp). He's an advocate for the open web, and values accessibility and design. He has a knack for making difficult topics easy to understand. In his free time, Andrew enjoys coffee, movies, exploring the city, and playing guitar. He is currently learning to speak Spanish.

"Building a Slack bot in PHP"
with Dan Revel


I will start with some background about OpenSky.com to provide the motivation for using a bot.

Next an overview of Yabot's architecture.

Finally I'll show how to use the Yabot core to build your own bot to do wonderful things.

#FullStackPDX : Code Critique

Who are we? We are entrepreneurs, full stack engineers, hackers, continuous learners, but above all, we are a group that loves to work hard and play harder. We organize a variety of content types, and the organizing team believes in delivering the best value for time invested in our events. Companies have launched, founders paired, code taken apart, lessons learned, and more. We are not the typical meetup where a teacher like presenter stands in front of the class and delivers their message. We are a full hands on interactive experience and meetings are successful from the cumulative knowledge and expertise of all members.

Join us for something different.

Join us to learn.

Let’s have fun building our dreams.

PDX PHP - PHP TestFest!
ImpactFlow

There will be food and participation, so bring a computer!

PHP TestFest seeks to create more PHP core contributors by introducing PHP programmers to the PHP language test suite, teaching them how to write phpttests. From September through December, 2017, groups worldwide will meet physically or virtually to learn how to write and contribute phpt tests. You don’t have to be a C genius—in fact, you don’t need to know C at all to contribute.1 If you can write a few lines of PHP, you can write a phpt test.

PHP TestFest wouldn’t be complete without prizes. We’re still working out the details, so we’ll announce prizes and how to win them soon.

This kick-off meeting will be a mini-hackathon which will include information on setting up your environment and how to write and contribute phpt tests. We'll be able to continue working on our test together in the slack channel and at other meetups, so you'll want to get started with us now!!!

PHPDX - Procedural Code to Testable Code
Graybox

Join us for food, learning and a great time to network with the fabulous PHP Community!

Kurtis Holsapple presents Procedural Code to Testable Code

During this talk we'll look at how we can transform existing PHP code to cover it with a few unit tests. If you've never written a test, or want to see how we can cover a legacy code base with a brand new test suite, we'll be doing it live! We'll start with a basic contact form and build out a brand new testing setup based on PHP Unit and Composer, and when we're done we'll try to build out additional functionality all covered by unit tests.
