This Week’s Link List (July 15, 2011)

I came across lots of good links this week, but I have to say that I’m most excited about the first two (yes, I know, long overdue). Lot’s of other good reading too…everything from tips for running PHP in Windows Azure to the top 10 things that annoy programmers. Enjoy… Finally! SQLSRV and PDO_SQLSRV docs…

This Week’s Link List (July 1, 2011)

I wish I could attribute my recent lapse in reading to enjoying more time outside in a beautiful, sunny Seattle summer. But alas, summer hasn’t really arrived yet, and work hasn’t slowed down (the pace seems to have picked up, actually). So, my list is a bit shorter than usual (but not short on quality!)….

This Week’s Link List (June 3, 2011)

For me, the highlight in this week’s list are the first two. Both the SQLSRV and PDO_SQLSRV drivers are now in PECL. For some, that may not be a big deal, but it’s something I’ve been pushing for a long time. I see it as one more (small) step toward community citizenship… Finally! I’m very…

This Week’s Link List (May 27, 2011)

Based on my reading list this week, you can infer that I was either very busy with other work or that I was goofing off more than I should have. Since my manager may be reading this, I’ll go with “very busy”. Highlights include Ben Waine winning the PHPAzure contest and MODX releasing v2.1 with…

This Week’s Link List (May 13th, 2011)

I happen to think that Friday the 13th is a lucky day (note that I’m knocking on wood as I write that). In any case, once again, lots of good reading this week. Actually, this list is made up of links I’ve collected over the past two weeks (since I didn’t publish a Link List…

This Week’s Link List (April 29, 2011)

I’m partial to writing, so one of the highlights in this week’s list is the podcast Elizabeth Naramore’s 2010 DPC presentation on technical writing. Other highlights are Andrew Burst’s look at NoSQL and the Azure platform and my discovery of chat rooms on Stackoverflow. Lots more good stuff too…happy reading… Windows Azure/SQL Azure… An interesting…

There was a lot of good content this week. Highlights for me included the release of the Windows Azure SDK for PHP v3 (beta), some excellent interviews, and Chris Cornutt’s insight into the work he puts into PHPDeveloper.org… Windows Azure news… The Rock, Paper, Azure challenge is too close to call as the tournament winds…

This Week’s Link List (April 8, 2011)

Once again, lots going on this week. I found the two articles about Zitec deploying their PHP social networking application to Windows Azure to be especially interesting. And, of course, topics for math geeks are near and dear to my heart…maybe I should make “For the math geek” a regular category? Enjoy… Zitec is an…
