PHP Architect Magazine – February 2007

As I write this, I’m sitting at the 2007 Vancouver PHP Conference. In fact, I’m sitting in the “Lightning Talks” session. Going to conferences is one of my favourite parts of my job. Yes, that’s right—going to conferences is part of my job. I love being exposed to new ideas and new concepts, and attendees can get a fair dose of this at most respectable PHP conferences, at speaker-led
sessions. At this conference, for the first time, I had the opportunity to give my own talk—based on my article in Volume 5 Issue 12, PHP Phone Home.

Recommended Payday Loan Blog

A payday loan, also known as payday advance, is a small short-term loan that is intended to cover expenses until next payday of the borrower. The loans are also sometimes referred to as cash advances, although this term can also refer to cash provided against a predetermined line of credit as a credit card. The legislation on payday loans varies widely between countries.

PHP Architect Magazine – Januari 2007

php-architect-january-2007You may recognize this issue as the “January 2007” issue of php|architect, which it is, but we also refer to specific issues (mostly internally), by their volume and issue numbers. This issue, for example is “Volume 6, Issue 1.” Most magazines adopt this convention, and it helps us keep track of exactly which issue someone is referring to, numerically. Issue 1 of each Volume is the first issue of the year, or “January” (except in Volume 1, where we cheated—Volume 1, Issue 1 was the December 2002 issue).
Hopefully I haven’t lost you in a big cloud of irellevance. I always enjoy turning my magazine directory structure over from (for example) V5I12 to V6I1, just as I take pleasure in turning my wall calendar over from (again, for example) December 2006 to January 2007. This particular issue has special significance, though—not just because it leads a new volume. I didn’t believe Marco, when he mentioned—almost in passing—a few weeks ago, “January will be our 50th issue.” He then proceeded to demonstrate to Arbi and I, not without the use of both handfuls of fingers, that this is, in fact, number fifty. We were astonished.
In the nearly two years that I’ve been editing the magazine (and in the time before that when I was (blissfully) just a subscriber), we’ve managed to somehow convince exceptional authors to write some really incredible pieces. I thought, as the tradition of changing years and creating lists goes, I’d pick out a few of my favourites.
