May 15, 2015 @ 09:09:33

The Product & Support site has posted an interview with Taylor Otwell, the creator of the Laravel framework. In it they talk about what Laravel is, how it treats users as "customers" and the community around it.

Taylor is the creator of Laravel, founder of Laravel Forge and founder of Envoyer . I spoke with him about open source software and making the transition to entrepreneurship.

Taylor also answers questions about the ecosystem around the framework (marketing, documentation, etc) and how its helped the popularity of the framework. He also shares a few things he might have changed if he could start over with Laravel, including features he feels are "overdone". They also talk about Taylor's move from a full-time job into being self-employed and how that works with two large open source projects to maintain. Check out the full interview for the answers to these and other questions.

Acquia Blog:
PHP Reset, PHP Renaissance Unify everything in PHP with Composer
April 30, 2015 @ 08:19:15

On the Acquia blog there's a new post today with another of Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire's interviews with a member of the PHP community. In this latest interview he talks with Jordi Boggiano, a lead developer on the Composer project that's changed the way people use and install PHP packages.

It was great to get the chance to sit down and talk with Jordi Boggiano at SymfonyCon Madrid 2014. Jordi is responsible for Composer, one of the most important pieces of technology that is driving PHP interoperability and the PHP "renaissance" of the last couple of years. He's also on the Symfony2 core team.

Jeffrey gives a brief overview of some of the main points that Jordi makes in his interview including the suggestion of "using what you know" and thinking of the people/users of the tool, not just the technology of it. He also mentions Jordi's response to the "PHP Renaissance" (and note that he sees it as more of a PHP Reset instead). You can watch the full interview video either through the embedded player or on YouTube, You can also use the in-page audio player or download the mp3 if you'd like an audio-only version.
