The 7PHP.com site is back with their first interview with a member of the PHP community in 2016. In this latest article Phil Sturgeon answers some questions from Khayrattee about his background, how is 2015 was and what he sees coming for the PHP community in 2016.
A little more than over 2 years ago (in June 2013), I did my 34th 7PHP interview with a young dynamic (can very much say as explosive as a dynamite as well – explosive in the good sense) named as Phil Sturgeon. I still remember at that time while I hit the “publish” button and tweeted above that interview, I unconsciously wrote Phil Surgeon instead of Sturgeon. We had a good twitter moment. Time flies and in Feb 2015, I was even able to meet Phil in person at SunshinePHP Conference in Miami.
Phil answers questions about his previous year (2015) and how the PHP community helped him through some issues he had between 2014 and early 2015. He also shares his thoughts on the current state of the PHP community and language. He mentions the difficulties happening around the PHP-FIG group and some of his predictions and advice for the PHP community in the coming year.
