Let's take over the world with Zend Framework

Very good presentation where you can learn the possibilities to get an international website/app. A good addition to this presentation in my opinion is to look more into the things that can go wrong or to keep in mind.

I wouldn't say there were any "hidden gems" revealed during this talk but it more or less delivered what it said on the tin.

As I also said after the talk I would like to see the use of Zend_Translate in the routing. This is some code of mine* where @map means that it will be converted to something else else according to resources.translate.locale in application.ini:

new Zend_Controller_Router_Route('@map/:latitude/:longitude', array(
'controller' => 'locations',
'action' => 'map',
'longitude' => '',
'latitude' => '',

*) I don't know if this is how you are supposed to do, but it works... :-)

No hidden gems maybe, but you definitely know your subject and saved us the time to lookup how the directory scanning works with language files. Good overview.

I might have been hoping for more from this. It seemed a little like a summary of a manual for a few functions/classes. Though to be fair it does mean I don't have to RTFM now.

However Martin did a good job presenting.

You did it fine for your first time. I would adjust the presentation and go more in depth about the differences with the native possibilities in PHP and why you prefer to use Zend_Date and so on... Try also to do a bit more resource about the function itself, like if Zend_Locale also call setlocale on PHP.
