Your apps never had it so good One of the latest (sort of) crazes sweeping the net is APIs, more specifically those that leverage REST. It’s really no surprise either, as consuming REST APIs is so incredibly easy… in any language. It’s also incredibly easy to create them as you essentially use nothing more than an HTTP spec that has existed for ages. One of the few things that I give Rails credit for is its well thought-out REST support, both for providing and consuming these APIs (as its been explained by all the Rails fanboys I work with). Seriously, if you’ve never used REST, but you’ve ever had to work with (or worse, create) a SOAP API, or simply opened a WSDL and had your head explode, boy do I have good news for you!

In March 1936, an unusual confluence of forces occurred in Santa Clara County. A long cold winter delayed the blossoming of the millions of cherry, apricot, peach, and prune plum trees covering hundreds of square miles of the Valley floor. Then, unlike many years, the rains that followed were light and too early to knock the blossoms from their branches.

In the early days of PHP programming, PHP code was limited to being procedural in nature. Procedural code is characterized by the use of procedures for the building blocks of the application. Procedures offer a certain level of reuse by allowing procedures to be called by other procedures. However, without object-oriented language constructs, a programmer can still introduce OO characteristics into PHP code. It's a tad more difficult and can make the code more difficult to read because it's mixing paradigms (procedural language with pseudo-OO design).
