php[architect] magazine has officially announced the release of their September 2016 issue: Legacy Code of the Ancients.
We don’t always have the luxury of working on greenfield projects where we can try out the latest language features, component libraries, or programming techniques. More often, we’re asked to take care of and add features to an application that just works and supports a company or organization’s objectives—like making money to pay salaries. Unless it’s a relatively new project, you are sure to run into corners of the codebase that should be modernized. The trick is to find the time and marshal your team to do so.
Articles in this month’s edition include:
- "Illuminating Legacy Applications" (Colin DeCarlo)
- "Legacy Code Needs Love Too" (John Congdon)
- "Building for the Internet of Things in PHP" (Adam Englander)
The usual columns are there as well including the "Education Station" and "Security Corner". You can pick up your own copy of this month’s issue directly from the php[architect] site. If you just want a sample of the content, check out this month’s free article – "The Modernization of Multiple Legacy Websites".

The ZendCon conference has just announced the opening of the Call for Papers for their 2016 event. The conference will once again be happening at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada in October (18th-21st).
We’re pleased to announce the ZendCon 2016 PHP Conference, the most anticipated PHP centric event of the year, where community and enterprise PHP developers from around the world gather to share and learn the latest hot trends and technologies in today’s professional PHP development.
We know speakers are key to the success of a conference and hope you will submit a talk. In appreciation for the efforts provided, our speakers package ensures they will not need to worry about anything other than delivering the best talks.
They’re not just looking for PHP topics either. They’ll consider a wide range of topics including PHP frameworks, devops, source control, continuous delivery and many more. The Call for Papers ends May 31st, 2016 so be sure to get those submissions in early (and often) before time runs out.
