028: The Alcoholic & Unfit PHP Culture

The PHP community has its fair-share of devs struggling with alcohol & weight loss and it doesn’t help that there is a strong culture around alcohol consumption at nerd events. For some, the bottle is just a fun weekend with nerds. For others, it’s a vice & deep struggle affecting them both mentally and physically.
We’ll be discussing the alcoholic culture in the PHP community as well as our struggle with weight loss.

    Episode 64: Dogs Using iPads

    Zoey Likes to Google 'Lhasa Apso'

    We recorded this ep with special guest Joe Ferguson about a month ago, but all sorts of family stuff delayed the release of this and Episode 63 (which we just released last week). On this episode we talk canine gold farming, bald eagles and beavers, how Joe secretly controls NomadPHP MC, NomadJS, and MemphisPHP, whether you’re supposed to drink Magners over ice, and how great Chris Cornutt is. We talked about more stuff but I got tired of writing things down.

    Do these things!
