In this edition I talked with Phil Sturgeon who is the founder of the CMS named as PyroCMS. He also wrote a book about it called “Catapult into PyroCMS“. @Philsturgeon is very much involved in The PHP Community; he regularly participates in conferences, is a prominent voice and voting member of The PHP-Fig (aka the PHP Framework Interop Group, I also asked him a few questions about it) and he has been amongst the core contributors of PHP Frameworks like CodeIgniter (CI) and FuelPHP, although he is now opening his arms towards Laravel PHP framework (the PHP Framework for Web Artisans). On the professional scene, he is the Lead Engineer at Kapture.
They talk some about his background, how he got involved in the PHP community and some of his thoughts about PHP's growth during that time. He includes some advice to developers just getting their start (including some good resources) and some of the tools he uses in his development. There's a bit towards the end about Phil's involvement in the PHP-FIG and some of his involvement in conferences around the world.
