Getting to #1 on Google…

So I just Google’d “mike conley”.

This site was the 20th result. Not bad, but I’d like to do better.

Unfortunately, I have to compete with a professional basketball player, a singer-songwriter from Indiana, and an Olympic triple-jumper.

Yikes. Stiff competition. Luckily, I seem to be the only “Mike Conley” programmer/theatre enthusiast…

Model-View-Controller in PHP: View

I’ve been programming in PHP for a few years now, and after being exposed to MVC through Ruby on Rails back in 2007, I came to realize that I liked the idea of keeping the presentation of data separate from the manipulation of data.

So I built a View class.  Download View Class


$view = new View('views/main_page.tpl', array(
       'some_var' => 'This will be assigned to $some_var in the view'));

And like that, data presentation is separated from data manipulation.

Piece of cake.
