Just a little notice that a blogpost was just published over at the Ibuildings Techportal. This is but the first thing you hear from me there, next week there will also be an article on refactoring published on the same site.

As my previous post shows, PHP is active in the Netherlands, and our user group is acting on that. However there's more beyond our user group in this little country!

phpUnderControl is a continuous integration setup for automatically running certain tasks on a project such as testing, documentation building, code sniffing and more. It is based on CruiseControl and uses PHPUnit by default. The default symfony unit testing framework is not PHPUnit, so it was time to enable continuous integration for that.

So today was a good day. The only thing bad was the fact that FC Utrecht lost in the dutch cup and is thereby thrown out. By Ajax, nonetheless. However, that is quickly forgotten when I think of all the good things.

Yesterday my employer Ibuildings made an announcement that I think will be very good news for the PHP community as a whole. A new initiative, the PHP Center of Expertise. Once again, an initiative that confirms I made the right choice last year.

Over at the company weblog of my employer Ibuildings , I've written a small highlighting of what I feel are the coolest new features in symfony 1.1.

I was already quite proud when I got the possibility to work at Ibuildings. They've shown to be (one of) the most professional PHP companies in the Netherlands, and after they partnered with Zend, it all became even more interesting. Now, I am even more proud to work for Ibuildings; they just announced a partnership with PHP|Architect.

Yesterday and today I have been away from home (I am actually quite happy that my presentation for tomorrow evening was cancelled, I actually get to stay home). Both evenings I really enjoyed myself, both evenings in the presence of some people I know mainly online.

Last year, while I was not yet working for Ibuildings, I did an introductory session on symfony at the Dutch PHP Conference. I was really looking forward to the event , and it turned out to be the success I expected . Ibuildings proved beyond a doubt that they organize a killer conference! This year, the DPC is back, and stronger than ever!
