Things have been crazy busy lately with work (both the full-time job as well as the freelance work I’ve been doing) and as such I haven’t had a chance to do a full blog post in a while. I appreciate all the great feedback I’ve been getting about the blog, though — I’m glad it’s helped a few of you already (and I’m not even to 100 posts yet!). Keep checking back as I’ll likely be putting up a few solid articles in February (possibly the continuation of my Subversion article!)
I just wanted to quickly post a link to a totally fantastic article I found about using the Singleton pattern for a database object. This is one of those times as a blogger where instead of re-inventing the wheel by writing about a similar subject you’re just better off setting your users up with a link to the best of the best and let it stand on its own. If you’re interested in learning more about the Singleton pattern, look no further.
I’m using a database class based off of the code in the article for a few of my projects currently, and I have to say, it works great. Let me know what you think!
