Pragmatism in the real world


I’ve been really really busy at work recently. With end of month coming up, we’ve been looking to complete jobs that can be invoiced this month, reduce work on jobs that won’t be invoiced this month and add in a few “quick” jobs that can be invoiced this month. Can you tell that worrying about cashflow is part and parcel of being in a small company?!

One result of all this is that I haven’t been able to do anything outside of work, programming-wise at least. (I still have to mow the lawn and deal with the kids, of course!) Thus I’ve missed out on having a good look at Zend_Controller_RewriteRouter which is sitting in the Zend Framework’s incubator. This is looking pretty damn good in my opinion and I’m really looking forward to having the time (next month!) to get my teeth into it.

The tests and the proposal provide an insight into how to use the class for those who can’t wait for the official docs to catch up :)

Im other news, the Zend Framework has a new set of developer tools that are quite cool. They all integrate together and seem to be working quite well. The new system for handling proposals seems to have arrived just in time for “proposals week” too!
