Design Patterns 101 for PHP, by Graeme Bryan
Graeme will discuss what Design Patterns are and the history behind it and then quickly go through some of the patterns from the Gang of Four (GoF). Although patterns can be applied to any code we will focus on PHP in this presentation.
Graeme has been doing web development for 7 years. He now mainly concentrates on PHP development. His most recent work has been in the magazine publishing industry. He has been presenting at computer user groups for a long time.
Web Design Patterns, by Russell Searle
The GoF design patterns are fundamental, but they are largely focused on back-end solutions, and coordination and integration of classes. A web developer also needs some familiarity with front-end and Web 2.0 patterns. We will look at a range of patterns in various areas of web development, and ways to approach and use them.
Russell is a 30-year IT lifer. For the last 15 years he has been an independent consultant working across a wide range of industries, roles and platforms. He has worked with PHP for seven years, and is now focussed on open source web apps, ERP, SOA etc.
We head to the Oxford Scholar Hotel or another nearby pub at about 9pm for drinks and socialising.
