Episode 71: Bespoke Tokens
Feb 03, 2016 @ 09:23:39

The /Dev/Hell podcast, hosted by PHP community members Chris Hartjes and Ed Finkler, has posted their latest episode - Episode 71: Bespoke Tokens.

On this episode you get twice the guest because we invited two of the three folks behind WonderNetworks to join us.

Paul Reinheimer and Gemma Anible came on (and even did video via Skype so they could tell when we were getting bored) and talked about how WonderNetworks got started, Paul and Gemma’s preferred development style and Paul seemed determined (as he always is) to tweak Chris.

Topics mentioned in the episode include (obviously) WonderProxy, space leggings, BulletPHP and PHP-GTK. You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page audio player or by downloading the mp3. Be sure to subscribe to their feed if you enjoy the episode and want yo hear more.

Episode 70: Anti-Canuckite Leanings
Jan 26, 2016 @ 12:19:23

The /Dev/Hell podcast, hosted by PHP community members Ed Finkler and Chris Hartjes has posted their latest episode: Episode #70: Anti-Canuckite Leanings.

During the discussions for topics for this episode, Chris went to the bathroom for some quiet time. When he came back Ed had asked dedicated grumpy-Canadian hater Amanda Folson to join this episode to talk a bit about the life of a developer evangelist, Greg LeMonde, the Battle for PHP CoC, how Composer saved PHP, and CodeMash.

Along the way Amanda and Ed ganged up on Chris showing their hatred for their peace-loving neighbours north of the 49th parallel and during the aftershow drove him away with talk about audio recording equipment.

Episode 64: Dogs Using iPads
Aug 17, 2015 @ 08:34:42

The /Dev/Hell podcast has posted their latest episode with hosts Chris Hartjes and Ed Finkler: Episode #64, Dogs Using iPads. This month they're joined by guest Joe Ferguson, a well-known developer and speaker in the PHP community.

We recorded this ep with special guest Joe Ferguson about a month ago, but all sorts of family stuff delayed the release of this and Episode 63 (which we just released last week). On this episode we talk canine gold farming, bald eagles and beavers, how Joe secretly controls NomadPHP MC, NomadJS, and MemphisPHP, whether you’re supposed to drink Magners over ice, and how great Chris Cornutt is. We talked about more stuff but I got tired of writing things down.

PHP Town Hall:
Episode 34: /dev/hell Mashup
Jan 13, 2015 @ 09:20:00

The latest PHP Town Hall podcast has officially been posted, Episode #34 - a /Dev/Hell Mashup but hosts Phil Sturgeon and Ben Edmunds. The /Dev/Hell podcast is hosted by two other PHP community members Chris Hartjes and Ed Finkler.

This is a big one. We’ve had Chris “The Grumpy Programmer” Hartjes and Ed “The Grumpy Podcaster” Finkler on our show before, but this time they both join us for a mashup! We talk about the perils of being opinionated people speaking in public. Chris basically just says fuck Reddit and all of its minions of evil, and Phil gives a bit of insight into why he gets stuck in so many arguments.

We move on to chatting about PHP, and how people feel about a strong new demand for more async features. Is it better to leave that to other tools, or should we try and fit some into the language itself, and the ecosystem around it? The last chunk of this podcast ends with a discussion around CodeIgniter 3.0 supporting PHP 5.2 and up. Should it be higher?

You can listen to the recording in a few different ways - either through the in-page audio-only player, by downloading the mp3 or you can watch the video from the Google Hangouts recording of the episode. If you enjoy the episode, be sure to subscribe to their feed.
