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
They also discussed the latest proposals for new features of PHP 7, as well the new MySQL plugin that allows accessing MySQL servers directly with HTTP exchanging data in JSON format.
Now listen to the podcast, or watch the hangout video, or read the transcript to learn about the details of these interesting PHP related discussions.
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. This episode could be titled Maybe since they weren’t really sure which way to lean starting out.
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).
