Search Results For "authorization"

An article, titled “Social Media Authentication and Authorization Using PHP“, which I recently wrote for Peachpit Press has been posted online. In the article, I explain how to use the HybridAuth library to perform authentication and authorization against common social media sites. I specifically demonstrate the code for interacting with Twitter, but the library works for other sites too.

This is the fourth article I wrote in support of my “PHP Advanced and Object-Oriented Programming” book.

A couple weeks ago, I posted a link to the Nettuts+ article “HTTP: The Protocol Every Web Developer Must Know – Part 1” by Pavan Podila. That was the first part of a two-part article, covering what every Web developer ought to know about the Hypertext Transfer Protocol. That article explained the fundamentals of HTTP, and is something that that truly every Web developer should read.

Nettuts+ just posted Part 2. In this article, Podila goes into:

  • Connection handling
  • Identification and authorization
  • Caching

It’s useful, detailed stuff, and understanding these fundamentals will help you better appreciate the how’s and why’s of web development.

Here, then, is an updated table of contents. These are still subject to change, but considering there’s not that much of the book left, there probably won’t be any dramatic changes.

Over the weekend, I posted an update to “The Yii Book“. This is version 0.5, which means I’m halfway there. This is about the time I was hoping to have the book done. So much for good intentions. With that in mind, my sincerest thanks to everyone for their patience. I know this is taking longer than we’d all like, but I’m doing my best and very much appreciate the understanding on everyone’s part. It’ll get done, I promise. And trust that “The Yii Book” is not taking a back seat to anything as far as my work goes these days. Continue Reading…
