We can build anything we want with PHP, be it a small little blog for ourselves to a giant world-spanning social media network. There are times though that we do not need all of the dynamic goodness that PHP brings and we just need a site that sits there. Sculpin is a static site generator that leverages the power of PHP and Twig to allow developers to quickly generate flat HTML sites, but completely automate the process of stitching all of that HTML together. We’ll quickly run through getting started with Sculpin and the power that it provides.

On April 30, 2015 Facebook is going to break their API. Are you prepared?

Facebook recently announced some big changes to their development platform which introduces a number of new features, limitations and breaking changes. The changes include a new version & versioning system of the Graph API, a brand new Facebook login & permission system, a brand new PHP SDK, and a brand new JavaScript SDK.

And here’s the kicker: all Facebook apps will be automatically forced upgraded to Graph v2.0 on April 30, 2015.

If you have ever tied your website into Facebook login, used the Graph API or the PHP or Javascript SDK’s, you cannot miss this talk. I will outline what Facebook is changing and explain the new Graph versioning timeline and process. I’ll also give tips for upgrading your app to the latest version of Graph and how to stay on top of the Facebook platform changes going forward.
