Woohoo! The PHP Development Center is now live on the Yahoo! Developer Network. It's full of useful code samples, advice, and HOWTO documents for plugging into our growing army of Web Services using the world's most popular server-side web scripting language: PHP.
- HOWTO: Make Yahoo! Web Service REST Calls with PHP: Should you use curl, fsockopen, or something else? Here are some thoughts on the subject.
- HOWTO: Parse Yahoo! Web Service REST Calls with PHP:Yahoo! Web Services return XML. Some can also return JSON and Serialized PHP. We recommend techniques for parsing and accessing all of these data types.
- HOWTO: Cache Yahoo! Web Service REST Calls with PHP: Caching is essential for performance and reliability. There are many ways to cache data and we offer up a couple of them.
It's hard to believe that it was only a year ago that we launched our developer network. (Back then we called it YSDN for Yahoo! Search Developer Network, but it wasn't long before we outgrew that name.)

Damn, personally I was hoping for a Tcl development center. Let me just take this opportunity to bitch on your blog!
Great stuff! Thanks to Yahoo for all the hard work and leadership.
AC: Is there anything that's not "yuck" to you?
Jeremy, this is wonderful news, I wish I was a little more in on the loop before this launched. This is definitely good stuff.
DD: Um, yeah, Ruby (see post #1).
Whatever happened to the MyYahoo calls?
And we wanna write as much as read!
Sweet! I'll have to dig into this. I'm all about me some PHP.
Write as well as read? That's an interesting idea. We'll have to look into that.
Very nice, thanks for the announcement.
Nice to know the site, I like PHP.
Hmmm.... Yahoo services for BASH would be more up my alley! :-) j/k
Just wanted to say you all are doing great with this developer stuff. Very impressed by how much you're releasing.
Although, if you like Ruby on Rails and php then there is always WASP or PHP on Trax (I know it's a total name rip off)
