We Be Bloggin'

Posted 31 January 2005 - 12:18 PM

Yes, it has finally happened -- I revamped my old, static personal site around Serendipity and am now blogging.

http://robertpeake.com/

All my published articles, interviews, and, of course, random thoughts (as they come) will be poured into this site. And, of course, into the forums here at DIC.

Check it out, enjoy, Trackback, comment. Y'all are welcome on my new site!

Oh yeah -- and I got a new job. :) CTO of The David Allen Company. I'll give you the full scoop on the big honking project they recruited me to oversee once it's a little more public. Let's just say there is some serious PHP code to be written....

Sweet. PHPDeveloper.org just picked up my post about PHPSEC. And Slashdot just picked up PHPSEC itself.

Oh, the community!

Excellent post, cyberscribe. I was particularily interested that you mentioned that some who've picked up PHP (among other scripting languages) as a first language may not be as well versed in some of the more rigorous coding practices. Of course, it has nothing to do with PHP itself (which I love), but rather the habits one can pick up by working with weakly typed languages. It's a point I've often made in discussion as well. Really good blog entry.

I completely agree that PHP's popularity has created a unique situation wherein people are learning computer science concepts from a language that has been designed for a single purpose -- rapid web application development. Initiatives like the Zend Certification seek to address the need for some kind of check -- when you say, "I code PHP" it could mean anything from arriving at PHP after a PhD in CS to picking it up last week by studying a few free scripts. What Zend Certification obviously can not do is teach four years of computer science (or even one) using a language like PHP that doesn't have memory allocation or strong data types. It can, hopefully -- and this is a big hope -- steer people toward the good coding practices you learn alongside malloc and cast in a high quality computer science curicculum. I doubt very much, however, that Zend is really doing this.

p.s. hope you don't mind I cross-posted your reply:

Thanks - I made that while still at Berkeley with an old Mac Application that cranked out all the static HTML for me. Then I just slapped an image map on the front end. Still works -- my genes haven't changed. :)

I certainly don't mind the cross post at all...as for posting the reply on /. as well, I took the liberty of modding you +1 insightful instead (as you know, can't mod and post in the same discussion). I thought that course of action would serve the end purposes (comment visibility) more.
