This Week’s Greatest Links (Mar 12, 2010)


I’m jealous that my wife can find the time (I don’t know how she does it) to read so many books just for fun. That isn’t to say that the reading I do isn’t fun, it’s just not the curl-up-on-the-couch-and-get-lost-in-a-story kind of reading I would like to do if I didn’t need sleep. And, I’m not saying she doesn’t do her share of sit-at-the-table-and-reread-paragraphs-to-really-understand-them type of reading. What I am saying, however, is that I spend lots of time reading stuff on a screen. I could literally spend all day following interesting links I find on Twitter, and I do spend a good chunk of time each day doing just that. I also come across interesting stuff that colleagues and friends send me. Some of the stuff that comes my way is really great! So I thought it would be interesting to share what I consider the “greatest” of these links on a weekly basis. Most of what I will share will be related to PHP and Microsoft, but I might sneak in an off-topic link every once in a while…we’ll see.


So, without further ado, here is the first installment of what I hope will be a regular roll-up of THIS WEEK’S GREATEST LINKS! (Did you hear the drum roll?)


1. This was, by far, my favorite link of the week: https://twitter.com/rasmus/status/10325288521. Just follow it and you’ll see why. (For those of you who don’t know, Rasmus Lerdorf is the creator of PHP.)


2. This looks like a cool competition: http://www.webnotwar.ca/ftw.


3. Make WordPress faster on IIS with WinCache 1.1: http://blogs.iis.net/ruslany/archive/2010/03/05/make-wordpress-faster-on-iis-with-wincache-1-1.aspx


4. Since this is the Month of PHP Security, this seemed appropriate: http://www.kavoir.com/2010/03/php-security-checklist-for-websites-and-web-applications-bottom-line-for-every-good-php-developers.html


5. In case your JavaScript skills are getting rusty: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/A_re-introduction_to_JavaScript


6. Interesting info about the future of PHP 6: http://phpcamp.net/article/future-of-php-6   


That’s it. Feel free to post your favorite links in comments…or, better yet, share them on Twitter: https://twitter.com/brian_swan.


Thanks.
