Nomad PHP:
November 2013 - Ed Finkler, "More Code, More Problems"
August 30, 2013 @ 10:38:38

The Nomad PHP (virtual) user group has announced their speaker for the November 2013 meeting - Ed Finkler talking about the problems that come with having "more code" in your applications.

In this talk I'll extend the concepts to other languages we work with in web development, establishing these core principles: Learn languages, not frameworks, build small things, less code is better than more, and create and use simple, readable code We'll cover how following these principles makes you a better developer, and makes the job of maintaining and verifying your code much easier.

The meeting is on November 14th and you'll have to sign up if you'd like to attend. There's a $10 USD cost for a ticket and you can purchase them right up until the event.

Engine Yard:
A Conversation About Testing in PHP
May 23, 2013 @ 09:42:29

On the Engine Yard blog today they've posted a conversation about testing between Ed Finkler and Chris Hartjes (also the hosts of the DevHell podcast).

Our friends Ed Finkler and Chris Hartjes recently had a chat about testing in PHP. Read on to get the low down on different testing tools and their relative merits-check it out as Ed and Chris weep for the future, come to some interesting conclusions and get their hands dirty so you don't have to.

They talk some about the current tools for unit testing in PHP applications and show what a sample test looks like. Ed talks about how the current testing tools can make it intimidating for people to get started testing and mentions the built-in testing library in Python that is a bit easier. There's also some mention of acceptance/functional testing and the Behat + Mink combo.

PHP Town Hall Podcast:
Episode #5 - PHPness Gate, Sexism and Mental Illness
March 04, 2013 @ 13:40:10

The latest episode of the PHP Town Hall podcast has been released - Episode 5, "PHPness Gate, Sexism and Mental Illness". The usual hosts, Phil Sturgeon and Ben Edmunds, are joined by Ed Finkler and Mike Federmann to talk about recent events in the PHP community.

This was a tricky episode where we talk about some big genuine issues that affect PHP developers around the world, and we talked a lot about a t-shirt. After Chris Hartjes cheated on his /dev/hell podcast by joining us in Episode 3, Chris' partner in crime Ed "Funkatron" Finkler decided to get revenge and come on the show. Our other guest Miko Federmann is a brilliant PHP and C developer who is a friend of Phil and Ben. She joins us on the show to discuss the recent hullabaloo known as "PHPness Gate" and the obviously connected issue of sexism in the industry.

You can listen to this latest episode either via the in-page player or by downloading the mp3 directly. If you like the show, consider subscribing to their feed too.

/Dev/Hell Podcast:
Episode 11 From Gas Station Attendant to Java Developer
April 27, 2012 @ 10:53:08

The /Dev/Hell podcast has released their latest episode (hosted by PHP community members Chris Hartjes and Ed Finkler) - Episode 11: "From Gas Station Attendant to Java Developer".

This time out we are blessed by the presence of Fictive Kin brosef of Ed. We explore Jo ël's rags-to-riches story: a young academic schlepping coffee and 44oz soft drinks at a gas station, where he's discovered by a grizzled dev team manager in need of Java skills. From there it's been a whirlwind of web sites, programming languages, and more ops than you can shake a stick at. Actually I was sleepy and wasn't really listening for the first half-hour. I bet it's good though.

You can listen to this latest episode by grabbing the mp3 or by subscribing to their feed (either RSS or iTunes) and get this and other great episodes.

The /dev/hell podcast has released their latest episode with special guest Brian Moon (of dealnews).

[...] In this episode we talk about dealnews, how they use PHP (and how they also use it in some interesting ways), and his thoughts on issues like concurrency and evented systems. We also cover features of PHP that allowed for some major changes and approaches they used in the code base for the site.

Other technologies discussed include Gearman, Node.js, Squid and Varnish. You can listen to this latest episode either via the in-page player or by downloading the mp3 directly.
