IBM is taking PHP (and Drupal) very seriously

IBM is taking PHP and PHP-powered web applications like the DrupalDrupal CMS very seriously.

See for example, the important series of articles Using open source software to design, develop, and deploy a collaborative Web site

This concentrates on a fascinating analysis of Drupal (better in-depth documentation than you can find even on the Drupal website, which naturally celebrates the series of articles), how it works, how to theme it, how to extend its functionality with modules, most of all, a practical example of how to use it!

OpenUP

Just run index.htm (see EclipseProcessFramework).

What we get is a very refreshing, non-bloated approach to the familiar roadmap (phases), core principles, roles, work products, disciplines and basic lifecycle; but with a refreshing infusion of agile approaches.

EclipseProcessFramework

I visited the Eclipse Process Framework site , where IBM (Rational) and Scott W. Ambler (of AgileModeling fame) are releasing the OpenSource project:

"The Eclipse Process Framework (EPF) aims at producing a customizable software process enginering framework, with exemplary process content and tools, supporting a broad variety of project types and development styles.

"EPF 1.0 now released! It contains EPF Composer 1.0 and OpenUP 0.9."

So, is this OpenSource RUP, or what? From the Agile Business Conference 2006 website I gather Scott will be giving the following talk:

Introduction to the Open Unified Process (OpenUP) and the Eclipse Process Framework (EPF) Composer.
