Zend and Microsoft Kiss and Make Up

Monday, November 6th, 2006

And I quote:

Microsoft has formed a technical partnership with Zend Technologies to optimize its open-source scripting language PHP to work better with Windows Information Server.

You can read the full article Microsoft Wants Speed Advantage With Open Source PHP on Dr. Dobb’s

This is some interesting stuff–definitely something I did not expect from a closed-source company with a highly competitive server-side language. I’m quite sure that ASP will continue to grow in it’s own direction, completely independent of PHP’s influence. What I’m hoping for is a much tighter integration with IIS because running PHP as a binary really sucks.

One of our own local PHP developers is off to Washington DC for the DC PHP Conference. Brian spoke at php|works 2005 about generating SVG data using PHP. Now he’s back at it again with his new and updated “Visualizing Data with SVG”.

If you’re interested in attending the conference, the price is $595 for earlybirds–if you’re a student, it’s only $400. For more information, visit the website at
