The Future of PHP 7 Is Bright – Lately in PHP podcast episode 49

By Manuel Lemos
With the plans to bring the PHPNG performance improvements, the future PHP 7 is bright. That was one of the main topics discussed by Manuel Lemos and César Rodas in the episode 49 of the Lately in PHP podcast.

They also talked about the discussions of Node.js developers moving on to the Go language and the parallel of PHP developers moving to the Facebook Hack language, the proposals to drop PEAR for Pickle as PHP extension installer and several other PHP proposals, and the latest and future improvements of the PHP Classes site user interface features.

Now listen to this podcast, or watch the hangout video, or read the transcript text to learn more about what was said during these interesting PHP discussions.

Episode 29: Dont Mention PHP 6 v PHP 7

This week Ben and Phil are joined by long distance target shooter Paul M. Jones and the handsome man that is Daniel Lowrey, to talk about a whole bunch of PHP relating things.

Paul has recently been talking a lot about “Action Domain Responder” which is billed as a more representative
replacement of the often mis-used “Model View Controller” architecture. Luckily he does a good job of ELI5 so we don’t get too lost, and we talk a bit about how ADR helps with putting content negotiation in a logical place.

Daniel then goes on to talk about a few awesome topics, including some of the OpenSSL changes in 5.6, and a HTTP server he is working on built entirely from PHP. It’s async, non-blocking and web-scale.

We cover HTTP 2 and its effect on PHP, give some thoughts on PSR-7 HTTP Message, talk about Aura and finally when Phil could hold it no more, we had a big rant about PHP 6 v PHP 7 which – at the time – was still being voted on. The end result is of course that PHP 7 won.

I know I said no further comment, but I’m definitely gonna keep posting funny shit I see about this. Article 1.
