PHP Roundtable:
034: Debugging is more than var_dump()
Nov 17, 2015 @ 11:09:48

The PHP Roundtable podcast, with host and PHP community member Sammy Kaye Powers, has posted their latest episode with a look at why "Debugging is more than var_dump()". In this episode Sammy is joined by Derick Rethans (of Xdebug fame), Colin O'Dell and Gary Hockin.

Believe it or not, there's a lot more to debugging your PHP code than var_dump()'ing all the things. We discuss how to use debugging tools to help us comprehensively debug our codebase.

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.

Delving into CakePHP with James Watts
Jul 16, 2014 @ 09:13:33

The Three Devs & A Maybe podcast has posted episode #34 of their podcast today featuring a chat with James Watts, a member of the core CakePHP development team. They talk about the framework, his own background and how he got into the project.

This week we are very lucky to have James Watts, a core member of the CakePHP project on the show. Initially starting off with his journey into programming, we move on to talk about the differences we find between junior and senior developers. We then touch upon his previous start-up experience and how that resulted in him thinking more about the product as a whole. CakePHP has been around for almost 10 years now, we discuss how he got into the project - along with the frameworks key goals. We then move on to highlight some of the key differences/features you will find in the next major release (3.0). Finally, we discuss his upcoming book, and his experiences with organising a large open-source community event.

Topics mentioned include CakeFest, the CakeDC presentation about git workflow and a few video interviews posted over on the CakePHP Youtube channel. You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page player or by downloading the mp3 directly.
