According to this new post on i>Andi Gutmans' (of Zend) blog, the vision for the future of Zend Developer Zone (DevZone) has been advanced with the addition of a new team member - Eli White.
DevZone takes an important place alongside Zend Framework and our Eclipse-based tooling as an equal partner in collaboration. Open source companiesâ€™ tail wind is the communityâ€”and the learning and mentoring environment that comes with it. We have always strived to help support the ongoing process of cross pollination among the community which has truly matured the PHP eco-system as a whole. Professional content, leadership, and expertise associated with the very best practices of PHP are the key to what has made PHP a mature Enterprise-ready Web solution.
He talks a bit about the evolution of DevZone from the "Zend.org" concept up to the current day with contributions from smaller, single developers and larger companies alike. Now, with the hiring on of Eli White into the "Editor-in-Chief" role there at Zend, Andi is looking forward to "the next generation" of all things DevZone.
