Thanx 2 Harry !
This is personal taste, but I'm hoping the links are quite general enough to maybe serve as a base for "Selected SitePoint Discussions". I've only included threads in the php forums.
I've sorted them on thread id and put them in an easy to parse format:
I imagine there are quite some others. Maybe do a search for something like:
thread_id | thread_description
59898 | post #14 by voostind, the classic "What's so good about OOP" thread
79670 | Where AcidReign points out the problem of assigning a reference to a static variable inside a Singleton's instance() method.
81134 | Where HarryF h(ij)acks the trigger_error() into something like $command->execute()
82885 | Are DB-abstraction layers pointless?
93442 | Was about PEAR::QuickForm, but interesting discussion between Selkirk and voostind about interface, sequential<>index iterator access
93716 | Form control
111555 | Separate Logic / Presentation without Templates... And front controllers, page controllers, ...
116878 | Java API as base for PHP library? Sidenote: Selkirk publically announces WACT and somewhat regrets it ;)
127823 | How to make OO code not bloated in PHP?
134487 | Best practices? Development practices by members.
135797 | Front Controllers, Page Controllers, Intercepting Filters
144960 | MVC missing a layer?
and order/group them by, errr, dunno, *****-length ?
SELECT posts FROM php_forum_threads
