PHP Town Hall Podcast:
Episode 44: Live From PNWPHP
Oct 07, 2015 @ 09:26:26

The PHP Town Hall podcast has posted their most recent episode, Episode #44, where they were live from the Pacific Northwest PHP Conference that happened back in September (2015).

Live from [PNWPHP ‘15](http://pnwphp.com/), Ben and Phil are joined by guests [Ben Marks](https://twitter.com/benmarks), [Yitzchok Willroth](https://twitter.com/coderabbi) and later we are joined by returning guest [Sara Golemon](https://twitter.com/SaraMG) who popped in to talk about HHVM/Hack while Phil played waiter for the rest of the episode.

Ben talks about Magento and some of his conference traveling madness, as does Yitz, who got trapped in a hotel for a whole weekend due to some interesting combination of Jewish holidays and an argument over the interational date line in New Zealand. Phil also tells us all about his NZ speeding ticket, mowing down possums like it’s Carmageddon, and makes a few terrible jokes because he’s scarily sober.

Voices of the ElePHPant:
Interview with Ben Marks
Jul 14, 2015 @ 11:47:32

The Voices of the ElePHPant podcast has posted their latest episode in their series of interviews with members of the PHP community. This time host Cal Evans talks with Ben Marks, a developer evangelist for Magento.

Cal and Ben talk about the work Ben does as a developer evangelist and how he got into the role. They also talk about how he handles the balance between the need to be social and the need to keep "doing the job" (and burnout). Ben also talks about what responsibilities he feels the role has. They also mention the eBay split (Magento is/was a part of eBay's products) and the work that's put in from that perspective to make it a good product.

You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page audio player or by downloading the show. If you enjoy the show, be sure to subscribe to their feed and get the latest episodes as they're released.
