This Week’s Link List (May 7, 2010)
I didn’t come across lots of interesting links this week, but I’ll make up for the lack of quantity with an abundance of quality. There continues to be lots of interesting news about PHP/SQL Server interoperability with some major PHP applications…
- "Today Microsoft is announcing that the Windows Web Application Gallery and Web Platform Installer (Web PI) now supports the download of the new phpBB release, which supports Windows, IIS and SQL Server." You can read more about this on these blogs:
- Somehow I missed this last week, but better late than never, right? A Preview to SilverStripe 2.4 - Support for SQL Server and other improvements with Microsoft technology: http://www.silverstripe.org/preview-to-silverstripe-2-4-support-for-sql-server-and-other-improvements-with-microsoft-technology/
- Ashay Chaudhary blogs about his experience at Jum In! Camp: http://blogs.msdn.com/sqlphp/archive/2010/05/02/a-quick-recap-of-the-jump-in-camp-in-zurich.aspx
- Last night, I attended the Seattle PHP Users Group. The very interesting topic of Modified Preorder Traversal Trees came up in the context of easy ways to display breadcrumbs on a website. This is an excellent overview of MPTTs: http://articles.sitepoint.com/article/hierarchical-data-database/2
- Another topic that came up at the Seattle PHP Users Group was cross site scripting and its prevention. Although this isn't a "quick" look at cross site scripting, I thought it was helpful: http://www.devshed.com/c/a/Security/A-Quick-Look-at-Cross-Site-Scripting/
That’s it for this week…have a great weekend!
