Episode 17: Mentoring and Apprenticing

In this episode Jeff and Matt talk about the idea of establishing and participating in mentoring relationships. As participants in the PHP Mentoring organization or initiative, mentorship is an important part of Jeff’s and Matt’s lives as developers. The main theme in this episode is that you should find a way to get past your fears and find a way to get involved with mentoring in your community. Along the way they cover some advice based on past experiences of what to expect and how to establish successful relationships.

This episode is sponsored by our good friend Coderabbi who is just about to depart for Europe on the initial leg of his Wisdom as a Service World Tour. The Tour is a spirited initiative to engage more than 35 User Groups representing over 2000 PHP developers around the world in a conversation about Community, Software Craftsmanship, Personal Growth and Professional Development. If you are a User Group Organizer who would like arrange a Tour visit, a potential sponsor who wants your message to be a part of the conversation or are simply interested in playing “Where in the world is Coderabbi?”, visit wisdomworldtour.com today!

Episode 54: Phil is Still Wrong

iframe width=”640″ height=”360″ src=”http://devhell.info//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/FfVZ_Erl0DU” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen/iframe

pOur latest episode was special in two ways: we recorded video of it, and it was a simulcast with our friends at the a href=”http://phptownhall.com/”PHP Town Hall/a podcast. What great people! They#8217;re still wrong, but that#8217;s okay. We talk about mouthing off in public, whether async features should be built into PHP, and the appropriate ways to encourage people to use current versions of PHP. Then Chris gets mad./p

Episode 34: /dev/hell Mashup

This is a big one. We’ve had Chris “The Grumpy Programmer” Hartjes and Ed “The Grumpy Podcaster” Finkler on our show before, but this time they both join us for a mashup!

We talk about the perils of being opinionated people speaking in public. Chris basically just says fuck Reddit and all of its minions of evil, and Phil gives a bit of insight into why he gets stuck in so many arguments.

We move on to chatting about PHP, and how people feel about a strong new demand for more async features. Is it better to leave that to other tools, or should we try and fit some into the language itself, and the ecosystem around it?

The last chunk of this podcast ends with a discussion around CodeIgniter 3.0 supporting PHP 5.2 and up. Should it be higher? Is it feckless to release like this? Should this be a documentation change to warn users away or a hard change to make it not even work there?

Also, who has the best beard? Hint: it isn’t Phil.
