PC World:
How Etsy.com Grows in a Unique Fashion
April 03, 2012 @ 09:08:08

Over on the PC World site, there's a new article posted about Etsy and its development practices and how it "grows in a unique fashion" because of them.

The Etsy staffers are also completely serious about their work, and these two features they share in common with their customer base, who are tying to earn side money, if not pay the rent, by designing the hand bags, walking sticks and hand-made chocolates that have made Etsy famous in the artisan and sustainable business scene. [...] The quality model for Etsy is cutting edge, but not unique. New developers are expected to push code to production on day one. That's not commit code, but push it to production.

The article gets into some of the technology they use there at Etsy (including NodeJS, Nagios and, of course, PHP), the atmosphere they try to maintain, how they do their code deployment and how they conform to various regulations, security and privacy concerns.

Christian Flickinger's Blog:
Ruby on Fails (story and stickers!)
September 19, 2008 @ 11:17:18

As a new meme was launched at this year's Zend/PHP Conference & Expo and, while it's not directly related to PHP, it was still very warmly accepted by the community - Christian Flickinger's "Fails" logos (see here). He's written up a post about it for his blog too:

So, a week before PHP|TEK 2008 I came up with the genius idea to take the Ruby on Rails logo, which is protected against re-use (hahaha), and parody it. I wanted to express my views of Ruby on Rails (though never have using RoR) through this modification.

I took the logo and simply changed the "R" to an "F" using a font that was almost identical to the original.

You can ask anyone that was at ZendCon this year about them - they were everywhere. Christian did a great job on a simple parody that shares the sentiment of many members of the PHP community (and others outside I'm sure). He has them for sale on his etsy shop if you'd like to pick up some of your own.
