- Properly passing data from outer layers of a PHP application to the use case layer
Update 2017-10-18: After reading this article, I recommend you to read the comment from Rasmus Schultz. It is very clarifying, and might make you think twice if this is really the best approach.
Lately, I've been digging a lot in different ways of improving software archit...
- Reusing factories in Zend ServiceManager
I think it is doubtless that modern PHP embraces SOLID principles, and therefore, dependency injection.
That's why every modern PHP application needs a dependency injection container to deal with it.
There are several options out there, depending on the way you like to work. Ev...
- How to customize 'not found' and 'method not allowed' response prototypes in Zend expressive 2
Sometimes the nature of an application requires you to change the default framework's way to structure error responses (like 404 and 405).
On this article I'm going to explain how to customize those responses when working with Zend Expressive 2.
Expressive 1. Error handler.
- My thoughts after migrating some projects to Zend Expressive 2
The day Zend Expressive 2 was released I was super excited. I have been using it a lot for both professional and personal projects, so I'm quite used to it.
Since I've been using it in many projects, being able to update all of them to version 2 was a challenge, but I can say, I...
- Managing PUT requests with file uploads in psr-7 and middleware PHP applications
It has been a long time since I first realized that handling file uploads in non-POST requests (like PUT) wasn't an easy task.
One could assume the $_FILES array should be populated regardless the HTTP verb, but actually, PHP doesn't do it on its own.
After a long time wanting ...

A couple months ago I started working with docker myself (it has taken me a while, ...
- Creating a content-based Error Handler for Zend Expressive
The other day I was working on a Zend Expressive application I'm currently building. The application includes a REST API among other things, but it also has some endpoints which render HTML.
In one of my tests of the REST API I saw that when an error occurs (404, 405 or 500), I ...
- Project Scalability with Zend Expressive
This article was first published in Zend Developer Zone
I've been working with some different frameworks lately. One of them is Zend Expressive, and I've come to the conclusion that I don't need to choose between different frameworks; depending on the project, Expressive a...
- Dispatch REST-like requests with a single controller class in Zend Expressive
I was digging into Zend Expressive and how to use controllers that allow me to share dependencies between different routes, instead of having to use different middlewares every time.
Abdul wrote a great article on this subject that you can find here, which also became part of Ex...
- Using ServiceManager 3 lazy services to improve your PHP application performance
Performance is an important subject when a project grows.
There are some good practices that make projects more maintainable, like dependency injection, however, creating all the objects at the beginning of the request could reduce the application performance.
If some of the cr...
