In this episode Jeff and Matt continue their conversation about careers by discussing their thoughts on titles and classifications of developers. If you’ve ever asked “what is a senior developer?” or even “am I a senior developer?” this episode is for you.
We discuss the new PHP engine spec, various RFCs, and all things internals. Also PHP 6 is officially dead, let’s have a moment of silence.
They also discussed the latest decisions about the features being planned for PHP 7, the last release of PHP 5.3 and PHP 5.4 going into security releases mode, and the (Facebook) PHP language specification effort.

In this episode Jeff and Matt discuss experiences with career management and career development. This was the first ever live recording of an episode, broadcast over Google Hangouts on Air. With the help of the kind folks in the IRC channel (#looselycoupled on Freenode) this episode covers topics such as salary negotiation, when to ask for a raise or promotion, how to plan a career plan, how to deal with co-workers in difficult situations, and a few other pieces of advice about successfully navigating a career as a developer.
Beau and Dave give updates on all sorts of things. So much so, they manage to not even get to the topic they actually expected to talk about. Fun times!
