Nov 08, 2018 @ 14:10:10

7PHP.com has returned with a new addition to their series interviewing members of the PHP community. In their latest interview they talk with Giorgio Sironi, a well-known developer in the PHP community.

This is the #40th set of PHP Interviews to help aspiring PHP developers & PHP fans alike to get inspired by listening from those PHP guys who are already highly involved into the PHP Ocean and being ‘there’ taming the waves, surfing better than ever to make themselves an awesome PHP Expert both in their own eyes (for self-accomplishment) and for the PHP Community.

On the other side, this is an opportunity for new PHPers to get to know their “PHP Elders“. I hope you will derive as much fun to read my interviews as I’m having by interviewing those #PHPantastic guys.

In the interview Giorgio answers questions about:

  • how he got started with PHP
  • what his common stack looks like
  • opinions on the good/bad parts of PHP
  • the best PHP book he's read
  • the best way for people to get started with PHP
  • recommended tools and frameworks
