Today I came across on a little “gotcha” when using the translated route segments in a multilanguage web site and thought about sharing the dirty little hack I used to get around it.

Speaking at DORS/CLUC 2011

on April 12, 2011. in Blablabla, Development. A 1 minute read.

DORS/CLUC is a conference about GNU/Linux and everything open source which takes place in Zagreb, Croatia, on May 16-18. I sent two talk proposals and both got accepted! Yey! The first talk will about, the story behind it, the ideas, the plans… The second talk will be an introduction to Zend Framework. I know, zf2 is right behind the corner with all it’s PHP5.3 goodness, but we are still, and unfortunately will be for a while, stuck with hosting providers running php5.2.

Installing FreeBSD 8.2

As I’m currently in the progress of installing FreeBSD on my first machine (out of 4), writing the process down for future reference sounds like a pretty good idea :)

PHP User Group, Novi Sad, Serbia

on March 24, 2011. in Blablabla, Free time. A 2 minute read.

For almost a year now, whenever time allows it, I’m working on a side project of creating a community of PHP programmers from around here. One of the first steps was, is, a website called PHPPlaneta about which I wrote back in October. After bringing this website to a relatively steady position, time has come to take another step: creating a PHP User Group! I’m really good at naming things so it is called “PHP User Group Novi Sad”, or pugns for short.

Contributing to open source

on March 17, 2011. in Blablabla. A 2 minute read.

Often times people ask me why do I contribute to open source, why do I “waste money and time” on free stuff when I could easily do the same thing for money? Don’t have I enough of staring at the computer at work where, well, I do the same thing - hack on code? Ummm. No.

Multiple Dojo tooltips on page load

on March 15, 2011. in Development. A 4 minute read.

As I said a few days (weeks?) ago, I’ve decided to learn dojo and not by just doing random examples, but by changing the whole administration panel for to use dojo and the Zend_Dojo_* components. Maybe it’ll become a bit more usable and prettier :)

Ideas of March

Apparently there’s this new movement in the PHP community, "Ideas of March", where we all pledge that we will blog more about PHP and web dev and the community in general. So here I am, doing the same :)

Playing with Zend Framework and Dojo

on March 02, 2011. in Programming. A 3 minute read.

Yesterday there was some talk on Twitter including Zend Framework and Dojo. I didn’t quite follow it through, something about why Dojo and not jQuery, it’s not that popular blablabla. Anyway, who cares? We have Zend_Dojo, we have ZendX_Jquery. I’m using ZendX_Jquery, but only as far as setting it up and loading jquery and jqueryui via the view helpers. Tried to use it on forms, to use tabs and whatnot, but in the end it was easier to write up a separate javascript file and do the jquery stuff there. But, I’ve never used Zend_Dojo before. Guess I was a bit scared away with all that dojo, dijit, dojox stuff… So, last night, being bored and all, I’ve decided to try and use it. Oh boy. How wrong was I for not diving into it before. OK, so far I’ve created only one form with dojo, but damn it’s good.
