There is “this language” which runs more than 50% of the Internet. Some say over 80, and who knows what is the most accurate data anyway. Given the fact that the language we’re talking about runs WordPress, Drupal, Magento and alike, it’s not hard to believe there’s a major hype around the newest edition.
PHP 7 is here and it’s more than popular – for a reason!Read more
Ok folks. Until today, trying to cover this area completely, I wrote two articles about Magento oAuth and REST services:

Seems like URL shorteners have gain extreme popularity with web services like Twitter. Not to mention the fact that long URLs are somewhat hard to pass along. They are also harder to verbalize in a conversation, and above all in some cases they are almost impossible to remember.
There are quite a large number of URL shorteners out there these days, mostly free. One of the freshest is Google’s URL shortener. This article is not about outlining the features that make this shortener better then the other ones (as I am sure some offer more features at the moment). This article is merely for the purpose of showing you how easy it is to use the Google URL Shortener service via your ZendFramework libraries.Read more

Hello there! Today I’ll be explaining The principles of SOLID programming. When I first got serious about OOP, I jumped to design patterns, but then I realized that everyone need a good grasp of the SOLID principles before you’re ready to tackle Design Patterns – in more of an Architect role – that is. So, to conclude this short introduction, I’ll try to explain this in as low-level of knowledge as possible.Read more
It’s been a while since I last time played with beauty of Zend Framework.
Each time I check new features it seems to me that the things are more simplier than the last time,
I might be wrong (I wouldn’t bet on that) or I’m just getting better
Hi, first of all, I’d like to explain the title of this post. I won’t go into depths of complicated examples, but rather explain the logic of it.Read more
