ObservableTrait – Experiment with PHP 5.4

Sat, 03 Mar 2012 18:41:47 +0000

PHP 5.4 was released this week, and one of the biggest new capabilities from a language perspective is traits, called mixins in some other languages. Traits are basically a way of creating a set of reusable methods and properties and adding them to class, almost like copy paste. In a way this is like inheritance, […]

InputValidator – Simple Input Validation for PHP

Tue, 27 Dec 2011 00:24:00 +0000

I recently needed a library for validating form input and everything seemed either verbose or required a huge number of files and libraries to be included. Here’s what I was looking for: Easy to include in projects without having to change include paths, mess with auto loaders, or include other frameworks Something that minimized the […]

RecursiveFileExtensionFilteredIterator – rolls right off the tongue, right? Recently I had the need to find all of the files in a fairly big directory structure that were web pages – in my case, files with the .php and .html extensions. There were hundreds of directories and thousands of files to go through, so I decided […]

PasswordHelper: PHP library for password hashing and more

Thu, 20 Jan 2011 03:24:41 +0000

Only two years since my last post 🙂 I was fixing up an old website I had built to improve the security and as part of that I wanted to improve the way in which passwords were stored, created, and verified for complexity. As part of this I built PasswordHelper, a small PHP library (61 […]

In my job as a product manager one of my key responsibilities is designing high-productivity software that is easy to use and powerful.

Playing mp3s with SoundManager 2

Mon, 24 Nov 2008 01:10:32 +0000

My friend Michael Ross is a musician and he sent me an email with a couple of the songs he recorded recently. I asked him if he would like me to put together a simple web page for his songs so that he didn’t have to send out emails with large attachments, and a week […]

A walk on the beach

Sun, 19 Oct 2008 23:36:40 +0000

Its been a long time since I’ve written anything here…mostly due to a very busy year which included Yenari and me getting married in June. I’ll try my best to be more active (i.e. more than one post a year), but for now, I’ll just provide a link to a little experiment I put together […]

Yelp for the iPhone

Tue, 04 Dec 2007 05:51:12 +0000

I just put together my first simple website for my new toy – my iPhone. It is a simple iPhone-specific interface for Yelp, my favorite source for restaurant and other local reviews. They have a ton of reviews for just about every local restaurant so I find myself using it all the time to find […]

PHP5 Defensio Class

Sat, 24 Nov 2007 23:46:32 +0000

Looooong time since I’ve written anything here – about 9 months! This time around I’ve put together a simple PHP5 class for communicating with the Defensio web service. Defensio has an example PHP class, but unfortunately it is PHP4 only and it’s more fun to rewrite it, right? For those who don’t know about Defensio, […]

Mon, 11 Jun 2007 00:57:30 +0000

I just got back from 20 days of traveling to South Korea, India, and Singapore. I went to South Korea with Yenari to see her family and friends for about a week. After this I headed to Bangalore (India) for work while Yenari stayed in South Korea a bit longer. On the way back home […]
