The latest issue of the php[architect] magazine has officially been released - August 2014, Beyond PHP.
In an increasingly multi-hat career environment, most PHP Devs are often asked to knock out some front end development from time-to-time. This is not as unusual as you may think. Having learned coding in the home-baked-what-the-hell-are-we-doing-dot-com 1.0 world, we were often expected to do everything from cradle to grave. While duties are a lot more (and rightfully so) siloed between front and back end developers than in 1998, we are still expected to (at least) understand the different life-cycles of web development and design.
The articles in this month's issue include a wide range of topics including:
- "MeteorJS – It’s Not PHP But Darn It’s Cool" (Alan Blount)
- "Building a Plugin System with Composer" (Maarten Balliauw)
- "A Modern Front End Through the Eyes of a PHP Developer" (Aurelio De Rosa)
- "The Confident Coder: What Type Are You?" (Aaron Saray)
You can pick up a copy to call your own (either print or digital) directly from the php[architect] site. If you like the magazine, consider picking up a year subscription too!
