Yesterday I asked this question:
“The year 2011 is over in a few hours and I’d like to hear what are your PHP achievements for the last year and what are you PHP commitments and goals for 2012.”
I got a variety of answers ranging from large complex additions to php, to beginners just starting out in php. To give some recognition to these projects and hopefully spark new ideas within people, below are achievements and goals by other developers.
Other Developers Achievements
- An RFC for C# style property syntax to be implemented in PHP. Click here.
- A PHP websocket server library. Click here to view.
- A lot of people got into using frameworks
- Created domotics applications( an application that controls a home) in php
- Used php as an interface for radio communications
- Designed multi-purpose bots
- Created a property management system
- Created a server communication client that uses XML-RPC
- Wrote Wordpress plugins
Other Developers Goals
- Learn GIT
- Contribute to an open source project
- Start blogging
- Write a framework
- Learn python
So those are achievements and goals by other developers. I’m not sure this is an accomplishment yet, but I managed to start getting ProdigyView some documentation and have started to create some interest about it. My goal in programming right now will be to finish up this 60 days of releasing stuff every day, write an RFC, and master another language like Java or C. I’ve already done work with normal Java and JavaME, but I don’t feel like I’ve really mastered the language yet.
Today’s tutorial was on HTML5 elements. The coolest part of the tutorial might be the browser indicator in the tutorial. Basically when a feature is listed, it will tell which browser(s) currently support that feature. For those that are going to make use of HTML5, a word of caution is to be careful. I would say to have fallbacks. Example, if you are going to use the video tag in html, this is fine but have a fallback to to a flash player if a browser such as IE7 or IE8 tries to view the video.
