DPC 2010

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

A couple of weeks ago I went to the Dutch PHP Conference 2010 and I had an amazing time. The event was held in Amsterdam at the RAI centre. The primary sponsor was iBuildings and the entire event was organised by the totally awesome Lornajane.

When DPC 2010 announced the call for papers I submitted both a proposal for a tutorial on PHP extensions and one for a talk on web services. Both were excepted. I had proposed both half day and full day versions of the tutorial the organisers chose the full day version. This turned out to be a lot of work. Basically I would be talking for 6 hours in four 90 minute slots.

DPC2010 – “PHP Extensions Tutorial” and “Web Services For Consumer Devices”

Saturday, June 12th, 2010

I am still at the Dutch PHP Conference and very enjoyable it is too. I have now given my two talks. The first was an all day session on writing PHP extensions in C. The second was a regular 45 minute session on Web Services For Consumer Devices.

PHP Extensions

This tutorial covered writing PHP extensions from the very beginning right through to writing objects and classes in C. I think this went well. Its a lot for beginners to cover so naturally some people got lost towards the end but I have had some good feedback. Links to the slides and examples are below.

Web Services For Consumer Devices

This talk covered what to consider when writing a service to be used by an application on a consumer devices. I agree with the commenters who felt it was a little light. Yes it needs revision before it gets reused.
