Frameworks Round 2

TechEmpower

Only Cake PHP requires more than 100 milliseconds. As before, Raw PHP is also very strong in this test. Again, Raw PHP makes an extremely strong showing. PHP 5.4.13 with APC, PHP-FPM, nginx. PHP ActiveRecord (Nightly 20121221).

Framework Benchmarks

TechEmpower

And let us simply draw the curtain of charity over the Cake PHP results. We were surprised by the performance of Raw PHP in this test. We suspect the PHP MySQL driver and connection pool are particularly well tuned. However, the penalty for using an ORM on PHP is severe.

Framework Benchmarks Round 12

TechEmpower

The plain PHP, Slim, and Laravel tests have been upgraded to PHP 7. For example, Slim's performance in the JSON test and Laravel's performance in the Fortunes test both approximately doubled versus Round 11 with PHP 5.

The HipHop PHP VM with no framework and thanks in part to the MySQL driver for PHP, yields dominion over the Updates test. However, hhvm trails plain PHP in the Fortunes test presently. Merry Christmas web framework performance aficionados!

Frameworks Round 4

Round 3 includes Snap on Haskell; Elli and Cowboy on Erlang; Openresty on Lua; Tornado on Python; Onion on C; Slim, Codeigniter, Phreeze, Kohana, Lithium, Laravel, Silex, Fuel, and Symphony2 on PHP; Grizzly-Jersey and Play1 on Java; Scalatra, Lift, Unfiltered, and Finagle on Scala.

Web Framework Performance - Startup Founders Need to See These Numbers

Los Angeles Startup Events

SoCal CTO

I recently posted about the Increase in Early-Stage Startup Activity in Los Angeles. In that post, I mentioned how one of the signals is the big increase in number of startup events and the number of attendees at those events. I realized that it has been a little while since I posted about the Los Angeles Startup Community and so needed to update my list of startup events that will be out of date almost before I finish publishing it.

Finding Developers is Tough Again

SoCal CTO

I'm primarily looking for front end developers who are experts in AS3, and back end developers who are proficient at PHP and MySQL. I’m seeing and hearing that it’s becoming tough finding good developers again, at least here in Los Angeles. On Friday, at the LA CTO Forum , I heard from a couple of CTOs having trouble finding good developers. My company, TechEmpower , recently added a few top notch developers, but it wasn’t easy to find just the right people.

Quickly Enable Social Logins with JanRain Engage

SoCal Delicious

ReadWriteHack ReadWriteWeb ReadWriteStart ReadWriteBiz ReadWriteEnterprise ReadWriteCloud ReadWriteHack International ReadWriteBrazil ReadWriteChina ReadWriteFrance ReadWriteSpain ReadWriteHack Home Archives More Articles & Blogs RSS Twitter Facebook How To: Quickly Enable Social Logins with JanRain Engage By Ben Barden / August 31, 2010 8:40 AM / Loading Comments Tweet This post is part of our ReadWriteHack channel, which is a resource and guide for developers. The channel is sponsored by the Intel AppUp Developer Program. JanRain Engage provides a convenient way to enable social logins on a site via a single API. This includes support for Facebook, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn and over a dozen additional services. Implementing JanRain Engage on your site is a lot less work than implementing each login provider one by one. Also, as any changes to each login will be handled by JanRain, you wont have to keep updating your authentication code if changes are made by the login provider. Creating Your Application Start by going to JanRain Engage and signing in. Of course, youll need to use a social login to get into the site. If you havent seen the sign-in interface before, this is a good opportunity to have a look at it. Well come back to this in a moment. Once youve signed in, click the "Create Application" link from the drop down list at the top. By default, youll be prompted to purchase a "Plus" application. Look for the link that says "Create a basic application" - this will allow you to try the service for free. (Note: You can use JanRain Engage for free if you wish. You can upgrade to the Plus version at a later date if you need some of the enhanced features.) Simply type the name of your application and click the "Create Application" button. Then click "Get Started" and you can start deploying the widget. You can return to this stage of the process by clicking the "Sign-in" link from your applications home page. Adding the Widget On the "Get the Widget" screen, youll be asked for your token URL. For the moment, just enter the URL of your home page and click Next. This can be changed later. Now click the "Generate Code" button. Youll be given two code snippets that look something like this: This code should go immediately before the tag. The second snippet is: This is the Sign In link. "yoursite" will be replaced with the name of your site. Getting Your API Key In the next step, "Handle Tokens", youll be given your API key. Copy the key, as youll need it in a moment. Choosing Your Login Providers Many of the popular login providers require configuration. These are shown with a gear icon. For now, remove the default providers and add one or two login providers that dont require configuration. Make sure you choose at least one provider where you have an account. We can come back and add some more later. A Helpful Login Class Some code examples are provided by JanRain Engage. These are good for getting started. However, they will need to be changed if you need to access any other API calls in the future. With this in mind, I created a class that might be useful. Dont forget to complete the class - look for the @todo tags. Once youve included the file in your project, just include the following code on the page that youre using to process login requests: I usually include the code in the bootstrap file of my project, so you can check if a user has just logged in from any page of your site. Once the code is on your site, youll need to test it. A Very Simple Example Ive set up a site where you can try out the Twitter login. The site doesnt do much except allowing you to log in and click a button. Its a good idea to set up a sandbox such as this so you can try out the functionality before using it on a real site. Let us know in the comments if youve used JanRain Engage for your site or if theres anything else youd like to know about it.

Your article is the only useful information Ive found about Engage but one thing I dont get is, what methods do you say we have to write? (in the @todo tags) I dont get what are those methods supposed to do. I tried your class just changing my API Key and I got this error: Fatal error: Class models_user_User not found in. However, when I do an echo of the $rpxProfile[displayName], I get a correct output. Is this error related to what Im supposed to write? I would really appreciate if you can give me a hand with that. Thank you so much for the help and the tutorial!

This is the question posed by iPhone developers around the world as they begin porting to the Intel® AtomTM SDK. When porting an application from one platform to another, the first item we as developers tend to think about is the programming language. Let us set that aspect aside and have a look at the hardware differences and how they affect the overall user experience. While a direct port of your applications features and user interface would be simple, a bit of due diligence up front may necessitate minor changes that will ensure what you end up with at the end of the porting process is what you had envisioned.
