PHP Vikinger Notes

Just a few notes from PHP Vikinger which were arranged by Derick Rethans in Norway today. Things went mostly smoothly and people in general seemed to have a very good time. These are just some of the random notes I made during the sessions.

All in all it was a good unconference, with a friendly and laid back tone and hopefully people got what they came for. Next time I’ll try to prepare a simple presentation on some interesting and hopefully not too familiar topic and actually contribute something too. We drove from Halden and Fredrikstad to Skien in the morning and back in the evening, which worked out quite OK, except for .. well, the lack of sleep in the morning. But everyone survived and managed to stay awake, so I conclude that the trip was a great success.

To sum it all up: a banana is a fruit and a tomato is a berry. You probably had to be there for that one.

Thanks for the unconference, and hopefully I’ll be able to attend more events in the future too.

UPDATE: Derick also has a writeup online from PHP Vikinger.

Support for Solr in eZ Components’ Search

The new release of eZ Components (2008.1) has added a new Search module, and the first implementation included is an interface for sending search requests and new documents to a Solr installation. An introduction can be found over at the eZ Components Search Tutorial. The new release of eZ Components requires at least PHP 5.2.1 (.. and if you’re not already running at least 5.2.5, it’s time to get moving. The world is moving. Fast.).
