On the 7php.com blog today they've posted the latest in their series of PHP community interviews - a few questions with Davey Shafik, the original author of phar.

In this edition I talked with Davey Shafik (@dshafik), who is one of the Founding Contributor of PHP Zend Framework. He has been a co-author of several prominent books, namely: php|architect's PHP 5 Zend Certification Study Guide, PHP Master: Write Cutting Edge Code, The PHP Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks. He is also a well-known speaker at several world-wide PHP Conferences - You can find his incoming conference schedules on his website.

In his answers we find out about:

  • Where he feels his place is in the PHP community
  • What he's excited about in PHP 5.4
  • Some advice to beginners about "scratching an itch"
  • Recommendations about profiling your code
