Accessing Web Resources with PHP
Comments are closed.
Extremely thorough delve into HTTP from the spec up through sockets/streams and PHP libraries to deal with markup. Slightly dry but that's the nature of the topic
Great talk, we do a lot of web scraping and this is what I would like to see my devs know at the start.
The only suggestion I would make (difficult given time and wifi issues) would be some live demos to see web scraping in action.
Great coverage of HTTP...gives a lot to consider for web scraping services.
Nice talk, any one interested in web services should see/hear this first. I have personally used cURL for scraping, but this presentation showed me other methods that I need to read and try implementing.
If its Ok with Matt, I would send a copy of this to a couple of my friends as a reference to start with for writing web services.
Probably the most directly applicable session I've been to. I would have liked to see some demos, but the session was too short for that to work well. Next time make it a three hour tutorial.
