114: Episode 2.0 with Joe Watkins

In this weeks episode we are joined by good friend of the show Joe Watkins. We start off discussion with the successful release of PHP 7.1 and what is in store for Joe now as release manager for that version. Following this, we chat about the libui and Yubico PHP wrappers he as been working on and development of a better Raspberry Pi OS. Finally, we highlight progress made towards incorporating a JiT compiler within PHP and some interesting things you can do with Zero-width joiner’s and Emoji’s in Unicode.

Episode 85: Brand Dilution As A Source Of Happiness

Holiday Spectacular

Welcome to our end-of-year episode! It has been probably the most gratifying year in a long time for both Chris and Ed. Chris' work at Mozilla has really changed his perspective on the value of the open web and his future. Ed finally got the chance to sink his teeth into a true leadership role at GraphStory and with a lot of help OSMI became a non-profit poised to continue doing excellent work in the field of bringing awareness to mental health issues.

Crazy travel schedules, the last TrueNorthPHP, Chris and Ed laughing about things more than usual, and a very passionate non-testing-related speech from Chris can be found in this final episode of 2016.

We know 2016 sucked for a lot of people and 2017 is likely to suck worse. Hang in there, we will be here for you.

113: Macro vs. Micro Vision

In this weeks episode we start off by congratulating Mick on handing in his masters dissertation. We then move on to discuss decision trees, ordinal regression and genetic algorithms. Edd then mentions managing large tables in Postgres, MVCC, Fill factors and Vacuuming a table. From here we highlight an interesting JavaScript Unicode/New-Line length issue that occurred recently. Finally, we touch upon testing time-dependent processes in isolation, dreaded CRM integration and sign-up processes.

Corrections: Couple of mistakes by Edd; its’ MVCC not MVVC, and any character that can’t be represented using 8 bits in PHP will have a strlen > 1.
