Connecting PHP to Microsoft Excel and LINQ with PHP
Peter Laudati & Dmitry Lyalin host the edu-taining Connected Show developer podcast on cloud computing and interoperability. Check out episode 22 “PHP LINQ Fest”. Peter interviews Maarten Balliauw (Microsoft ASP.NET MVP) from Real Domen about two PHP-related open-source projects he has been working on: PHP LINQ & PHP Excel.
PHP LINQ is set of PHP classes that implement .NET’s Language Integrated Query (LINQ) syntax in PHP. PHP Excel is a project started by Maarten that enables PHP developers to connect to, generate, and interact with Excel files. This includes both the old-style .XLS files as well as the newer open office XML .XLSX files too!
