I have spent a lot of time recently working with Zend Framework. As I get further into its features and capabilities, the more I enjoy developing websites and web applications with it. While researching ideas and options, I came across ZFDebug, a plugin that adds a debug bar to the bottom of your pages if you are in the “development” environment. The plugin is hosted on Google Code and is licensed under the New BSD License.
I was scouring the web for some MySQL tips, tricks, and documentation to help me as I work on the blog and other development projects. Tuning is often times overlooked; sometimes once the database table structure is built and normalized, development stops there. I am trying to be more conscious of that and during my research I came across a performance tuning video published by Google during one of their Google TechTalks.
There is a new section on the Resources page for Frameworks. This section of the resources page lists popular PHP frameworks like Zend Framework, which is my personal favorite, and CakePHP. The six common PHP frameworks that were added are also listed in this article.
