This week Ben and Phil are joined last minute by repeat guests Kayla Daniels and Matt Frost.
We talk waaaaay too much about hotdogs, Phil’s fun-employment, cocaine, and what’s new in PHP-land.
The recommended cool stuff of the episode is:
Dossier – super secret stealth mode project for managing talk abstracts
No Capes – Live Interviews with prominent speakers, community members and package developers in the PHP Community
WurstCon – The wurst conference in the US of A
SideSwell – beautiful side project execution tool
Treehouse – learn to program yo
You can find more announcements, episodes and random stuff on iTunes Store, Twitter, Google, YouTube and… you get the idea. Follow for free Sturgeon points and eternal happiness.
In this episode Jeff and Matt finally discover the mystery of the Trello card “Elephpantitus” and attempt to cover how important or how unimportant it is to diversify your programming background within a given language community. Perhaps it’s a good idea to focus on being a PHP developer rather than a WordPress developer or a Magento developer, or maybe it isn’t.

We’re joined for Episode 51 by Margaret Staples, backend programmer extraordinaire on Brunelleschi: Age of Architects. She shares her experiences doing indie game dev, traveling to the Strangeloop conference, and meeting geeks celebs. We also talk about serial killers and Ed’s new job (obviously).
