PHP Town Hall Podcast:
Episode 40: Return of the Ferrara
Apr 23, 2015 @ 09:02:26

The PHP Town Hall podcast has posted a new episode today with the Return of the Ferrara. Hosts Ben Edmunds and Phil Sturgeon are joined once again by guest Anthony Ferrara to talk about, among other things, scalar type hints.

Regular guest Anthony Ferrara joins us “in the studio” to talk about the new version of his scalar type hints, which since recording - a f**king month ago - has been accepted for PHP 7. We thought it would be good to have a bit of a chat about the feature, the nonsense that surrounded it and a bunch of other random internals and PHP 7 related blathering.

You can catch this latest episode in a few different ways, either through the in-page audio player, by downloading the mp3 or through the video recording of the live session. If you enjoy the show, be sure to subscribe to their feed too.

PHP-FIG member Paul M. Jones and PHP contributor Anthony Ferrera come on the podcast with Ben, Phil and regular guest Zack Kitzmiller to discuss the new Package Orientated Autoloader Proposal (a.k.a PSR-X), and wether or not PSR’s should ever be amended.[...] Nobody wins, but the argument brings up a lot of interesting topics and points of view, and that is mostly what we are here for.
