The Voices of the ElePHPant podcast, hosted by Cal Evans, has posted their latest interview with a member of the PHP community. In their latest show Cal talks with Dave Stokes of Oracle (MySQL) recorded at the 2016 edition of the Sunshine PHP Conference.

Cal and Dave talk about the work that he does as a "MySQL Community Manager" for Oracle and how he got into it. They also talk about the importance of having "that person" to touch base with in a community (or at a company), much like Dave is for MySQL/Oracle. They both mention how happy they are that the PHP community is as open and sharing as it is, especially with things like Composer and PHPUnit.
