Prestwood IT Social Networking Strategy
by Mike Prestwood

Social networking is a bit confusing! Emailing and calling are still the standards. Is faxing still ok? What about Facebook? Do I friend someone or become a fan of their fan page? Wait, what happened to fan pages? Are they now Facebook pages? What about Facebook groups? What about LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter, MySpace, and others?

The following articles are posted to the PrestwoodBoards knowledge base:

The Prestwood Strategy: Although we still prefer phone calls and email, we do use social media to reach out. Our primary form of social networking is not with our clients, but with fellow IT professionals at PrestwoodBoards.com. Use the link above to learn more including how to interact with Prestwood IT, our other websites and groups, and our staff including Mike Prestwood.

Beginners Corner topic (classic post):
PHP Variables ($x = 0;)
by Mike Prestwood

PHP is a loosely typed language. No variable types in PHP. Declaring and using variables are a bit different than in other languages. In PHP, you identify and use a variable with a $ even within strings!

You assign by reference with & as in &$MyVar.

Code Snippet of the Month

In .PHPhtml pages, you embed PHP code between <?PHP and ?>.

For PHP, JavaScript, Java,and C++, I prefer to put the first { at the end of the first line of the code block as in the example above because I see morePHP codeformatted that way (and on PHP.Net).

PHP Alternative Syntax

Although I don't like to use it, PHP offers an alternative syntax for if, while, for, foreach, and switch. These code blocks are surrounded by statement ending keywords that all use End with camel caps such as endif, endwhile, endfor, endforeach,and endswitch.

<?PHP
$x = "Yes";
//Simple if
If ($x == "Yes")

echo "hello world";
 
//If with a block of code.

If ($x == "Yes") {

echo "Hello world";
  echo "I am a PHP coder!";
}
?>

FAQ of the Month: Delphi PHP V
Question:

What PHP version does Delphi for PHP support?


Answer:

Delphi for PHP is based on PHP version 5. Meaning, the VCL for PHP extends the standard libraries that ship with PHP 5. This also means you can deploy your Delphi for PHP website on any hosted website that has PHP 5 installed.

Note: You can deploy your Delphi for PHP websites on the hosted websites we offer on our http://www.prestwoodhosting.com web hosting services website.
