I've decided to pick up Scala and in order to learn the language I'm going to do the good old exercise: create a blog. As always with these things: no, I have absolutely no interest in adding blog app to this world, nor do I want to create ...

# Dependency injection and Zend Framework

Lately I've been working on a site based on the Zend Framework. It's been a good chance to get more intimate with ZF, learning the inner workings and quirks of the framework. Today I came across the question of how to do dependency injection for your controllers - I ...

It's been a while since I did the last post (merge sort) in my sorting algorithms in PHP series (new readers start with Sorting algorithms: bubblesort) so I thought it about time that I add the next part. This time I'm going for heap sort. This algorithm has ...

# Sorting algorithms: Merge sort

The next sorting algorithm in this series is the Merge Sort. Of the algorithms covered so far, this algorithm comes closest to the Shell Sort algorithm. The reason for this lies in how the comparisons are done in both algorithms: instead of working on the entire array, both the shell ...

Third in the line of posts on sorting algorithms (first was Bubble Sort and the second was Insertion Sort) is the Shell Sort. This is basically a variant of the insertion sort, with the difference that you're sorting the array multiple times. Another way of looking at this is ...
