Enhancing PHP on Windows

I’m not sure how many of our regular Public Sector readers use PHP at work.  Around here, we, obviously, prefer .Net 🙂  If you are using PHP, however, you might be interested in the following announcement.

Basically, this is a technical partnership between Zend & Microsoft to improve the performance of PHP on Windows.  We’d like for all developers to have the option to run on Windows, even those who don’t choose to use .Net.  Since most PHP developers develop their applications using Windows, it is important that Windows be a first class platform for running the applications as well.

Also, since we are on the subject of PHP, it is probably a good time to point out that the Microsoft Ajax Library, which is written in client side javascript, can be used with any web development technology, including PHP.

    Of course, PHP and .NET aren’t mutually exclusive:  http://www.codeplex.com/Wiki/View.aspx?ProjectName=Phalanger

    Cold Fusion


    These examples are based on older bits, but the concepts are still the same.  You will need to port to the latest bits wich are available at http://ajax.asp.net.
