What file extension are you?

Given that I'm a Kubuntu user, I will try not to take this personally...

Good SPL intro

One of PHP 5's coolest features is the Standard PHP Library, or SPL. If you're operating in an OO way, SPL is a great way to easily leverage a huge amount of functionality.

Of course, the main problem is that the official documentation on it sucks. At best it points to an off-site series of class hierarchies. (Technically it's not off-site, but not internal to the manual.)

DrupalCon Barcelona: Best DrupalCon Ever!

So it's been a week since DrupalCon, which means I'm kinda sorta caught up enough to write about it. Hooray!

As with DrupalCon Sunnyvale, I came away with one conclusion fixed in my mind: The Community is Drupal's greatest strength. Virtually everyone upholds a strong community and open source spirit, and will gladly talk to you for hours about subjects both on topic and off, with or without beer (free or otherwise).

But enough about how cool we are. On with the rundown.

Limerickal Drupal

You know you're in a healthy community when people randomly offer limericks in return for code reviews.

And it's especially healthy when it randomly spills over into IRC:

Dropping Rails, but not its bad lingo

A ran across this article recently making the rounds. In it, the author discusses spending 2 years in Ruby on Rails land before finally giving up and coming home to PHP, wiser for the experience. It's a good article, but one thing in it really raised the hair on my neck.

DrupalCon Barcelona Day 0

T'was the night before DrupalCon and all through the city, not a hacker was typing, not even a key.

I claim this Spain for land(ing)! (updated)

So it's a bit belated, but for those who haven't gotten a phone call from me, you get this instead. Yes, I have made it to Spain alive (and calling the US is expensive, dagnabbit). DrupalCon starts on Wednesday, so in the mean time I am doing my best to uplhold the image of the stupid American tourist.

I will spare you the daily blow by blow, as this isn't that sort of blog, but I will make a few comments on the wonders of international travel...

DrupalCon Barcelona schedule up

The schedule for DrupalCon Barcelona has been posted! Not surprisingly both of the sessions I submitted were accepted. If you're coming, stop on by! Now I guess I need to actually put together presentations for them...
