Episode 20: A nice friendly chat about Sculpin, Guzzle and PSR-7

Trying out a slightly more professional format with questions, Phil manages to avoid talking over everyone. Winner!

This show has a history of talking about FIG stuff as it is hard to avoid. The group is working on so much cool stuff
and prominent figures of the community are involved. We got two more prominent figures, who also happen to be involved
with FIG stuff: Beau Simensen lead developer of Sculpin and Michael Dowling lead developer of the wonderful
HTTP library Guzzle, who also works at AWS on their PHP SDK.

We discussed each of their projects, some of the plans for the future, specifically whats coming up in Guzzle 4 and
how that all ties in with the new PSR-7: HTTP Message, currently in “Draft” status. Conveniently Beau, Michael and
Phil are the three FIG members who make up the working group for PSR-7 who will all be working to get this “Accepted”.

See, it all fits!

We also get some great questions from the audience:

Beau & Michael, you’ve both been managing open source packages (OSP) for a few years. What’s the best and worst part of managing an OSP?
Jeremy Lindblom

@Michael do you think a simple HTTP Server interface would fit PSR-7? That would be a good replacement for StackPHP, no?
Marco Pivetta

I’m curious about how this HTTP client relates to the pecl/http extension (http://php.net/http). There’s been talk in the past of including that extension in the core.
Ben Ramsey

What different circumstances dictate how long a PSR takes to get from proposal to blessed by FIG?
– Edmund Zynda

So, plenty for you folks to watch here on the YouTube video!

Episode 39: Animal Style

Double-Double Animal Style

Okay, first off, this episode sounds like crap. We weren’t really prepared to record and used half-assed equipment and stuff. Sorry guys. It should at least be listenable.

Anyway, this was recorded the night before SkiPHP started, which was an awesome PHP conference in Salt Lake City. We ramble about a lot of stuff, including our first conferences, America’s first serial killer, our approaches for giving talks, and Chris’ secret identity.
