A really quick, no API, Zend_Service_Twitter example

One of the cool things in Zend Framework is the Zend_Service layer. What it basically does is provide access to a variety of different service-based… well, services, so that you can easily integrate your application with other services. One example is, of course, Twitter. Often, to connect to various services you need to have an API key that you use to connect. The same is true for Twitter, except for public feed information. What this means is that you can search Twitter for free, with no API, easily.

The Zend / PHP relationship

So this is my first post after having slaved away over hot code for two weeks. Well, two weeks off and on. And it wasn’t the PHP code, it was the JavaScript and CSS. The PHP code was a snap… as it should be. But this was a challenge nonetheless. So the question now is what to write about. And given that this is a first post it will be one of those things that will be way down at the end of every search result and every tag list. And since it is the first posting nobody will probably read it except for my Mom.
