73: PHP 7 Extension Development with Joe Watkins

In this episode we are lucky to be joined by good friend of the show Joe Watkins. We start off the podcast discussing the recent major release of pthreads (version 3) and the differences found compared to version 2. This moves us on to touch upon the design decisions made due to changes between PHP 5 and 7, providing a good API to the user, volatility and immutability considerations and installing extensions within PHP 7. We finally bring up the progress being made in moving over other extensions such as APCu and uopz, helping out with other projects such as Xdebug and our delve into screencasting.

In this episode, Adam talks to recurring guest Matt Machuga about tips and tricks that lead to better code. They talk about bringing functional programming concepts to OO, simple patterns for cleaning up typical MVC web app code, and about how imposing crazy rules like banning conditionals and loops can lead to creative solutions that change the way you think about solving problems. They also get a little too excited about anonymous functions and compositional chains.

72: ReactJS, Flux and Screencasting

This week we start off discussion with the topic of CSRF and Session hijacking. We then move on to the recently released screencasts we did with Joe Watkins, and how interesting Edd found recording them. Following this we discuss ReactJS, the Flux architecture, handling error-logging on the front-end and the JavaScript source-maps. We wrap up the show with the emphasis of removing jQuery, how hard following a single source of truth is and ‘dangerous’ design patterns.
