Alejandro Celaya has a new post on his site covering one thing he sees that makes the Zend Expressive framework (based on the full Zend Framework) one of the best to work with: it's interoperability with other libraries and tools. I have written a lot of posts about Zend Framework in general and Zend Expressive in particular, but I have noticed that I have never talked about one of the things that, from my point of view, makes Expressive so game-changing, Interoperability. He starts with a bit of background about frameworks in PHP and how developers most commonly selected them because of the features they bundled. Picking and choosing different parts of different frameworks wasn't an easy task until the PHP-FIG came around to try to consolidate and standardize interfaces. This made interoperability possible and provided the methods for Zend Expressive to implement for working with just about any library you'd like to plug in. He then gets into detail about Zend Expressive's interoperability functionality and which are based on PHP-FIG PSRs (recommended interfaces). He also covers some of the extendibility Zend Expressive brings to the table as well as providing a proof of concept to help illustrate this points.

PayPal has recently got a new custom typeface: PayPal Sans. Designed exclusively for PayPal by the Klim Type Foundry, PayPal Sans comprises of two sub-families: PayPal Sans Big and PayPal Sans Small, as well as 14 styles. As a custom font, PayPal Sans is something you will see in use exclusively on PayPal website and mobile apps. This font has taken several months in the making, and PayPal's logic behind a custom sans serif typeface was to find a font that is: mobile-first and numeral-centric performs well across different devices and resolutions space-efficient, and renders well even on smartphones in portrait mode relies on humanist design principles Naturally, PayPal Sans is more of a minimal and functional font design, and not decorative or flamboyant. The lettering in PayPal Sans is horizontally economical without sacrificing legibility or readability, especially considering the fact that PayPal's audience involves users who rely a lot on the mobile app. The two sub-families of the font, PayPal Sans Big and PaPal Sans Small, have a very subtle difference between them — a 13px size difference in terms of styles. You can see PayPal Sans in action on the PayPal website or mobile apps, and read more […]* You might also be interested in the following articlesSerif vs. Sans: Typography Basics And Loads Of Free Fonts…Deal of the Week: Trend Font Family Bargained AwayColor Theory and Typography: The 10 Commandments (Infographics)Outlook For Web Undergoes A Major UpdateDeal of the Week: Verb, Family of 72 Superb Fonts for 50 Cent EachBehance: 19 Inspiring and Free Anti-Boredom Typefaces

Kevin Schroeder has a post to his site sharing some helpful tips for monitoring Magento jobs and crons to help provide a bit more information about the job and its current state. About a month ago a client of mine was lamenting the fact that they didn't have insight into what was going on with their cron jobs. So I did what any idiot would do and built out a service that does just that. It works with any Magento version, 1 or 2, system crons, and you can use an API to integrate it with your own system with a very minimal amount of work. I call it the 10n Job Health Vault. With Magento 1 or 2 you can have it set up and running in under 5 minutes (minus DI compilation time, of course). The tool tracks the execution of the job and notifies you if something's wrong and it hasn't finished. This also means it can track the execution time and report back if it's slower than usual. You can find out more information about this Magento monitoring tool on its website.
