Never Use GET Again, at PHP Architect

Aug 8 2010

I've been fairly silent for the last few months. A vacation, a business trip, and a huge job change have been the primary factors. There's also a big make-over going on with QueryPath right now. With a Summer of Code project promising to bring new features to QueryPath, and a new logo to give it a fresh look, I am scrambling to bring everything to fruition early next month.

But I haven't been totally silent. Here's a recent article I wrote for PHP Architect: Never Use $_GET Again.

In the article, I discuss how recent developments in PHP 5 make it unnecessary to ever access $_GET and $_POST variables. These tools add a layer of security and reliability, while reducing the amount of boilerplate that we developers have had to write in ages past.
