The design handoff is a critical part of any project. For many designers and engineers, the design handoff is a stressful experience.

Sameer Borate has a new post to his site sharing a method for converting a CSV to an Excel document using PHP. While you can open a CSV file with Excel correctly, using this method (and library) allows for more control over the end result. During a recent data conversion project I needed to convert around 250 CSV files to Excel (xls) format. As this was a PHP project I decided to write a small PHP script using the PhpSpreadsheet library. He then walks through the installation (via Composer) and use of the library to take in a simple CSV of countries and write it out as a .xls file in a single worksheet. He also includes a modification of the script that can be run from the command line, taking in arguments for the source file and the destination.

Rob Allen has posted a quick tutorial to his site showing how to user Composer in a PHP project on OpenWhisk. OpenWhisk is Apache's serverless cloud platform that's easy to scale and relatively easy to use. This is the latest in a series of posts from Rob covering its use in PHP projects. Every PHP project I write has dependencies on components from Packagist and my Serverless OpenWhisk PHP projects are no different. It turns out that adding Composer dependencies is trivial. He uses a simple action that coverts a number to the matching string, showing the yaml configuration changes and code to include to define the action. The action makes use of the NFNumberToWord package which is then added via Composer. He deploys the action and calls it directly, showing the result to be the correct string for the number "123". He also mentions an archive file (zip) that the serverless functionality creates containing all of the files related to the project. He shows the configuration option you can use to split these by action, making it easier to create a more modular system.

The accelerated CI/CD practices that cloud environments have enabled has led many developer teams to create automated script tools that replace the manual configuration and provisioning of apps by communicating directly with the cloud provider's API. This approach to software production is known as Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC), and essentially forms the building blocks upon which the … continue reading The post Shifting hard left: Why securing IaC is the next step in compliant software development appeared first on SD Times.
