Acquia Podcast:
New Wave PHP with Lorna Jane Mitchell
February 17, 2015 @ 11:49:40

The Acquia podcast has a new episode from host Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire with guest Lorna Jane Mitchell talking about the "new wave PHP" and recent advancements in the community and language.

Lorna Jane Mitchell is back to show us some great reasons for upgrading your projects to PHP 5.3 or newer. Drupal 8's minimum version requirement is already up there at 5.4.5 (as of 2015.Feb.02), so we're doing well! Lorna and I have a quick chat about her history and experience, open source versus proprietary software development ("Projects and companies that work in that open source technology space make much better use of tools ... and they are wonderful, free, and well-supported tools!") ... specifics of how and why the PHP "Renaissance" is happening, and Drupal 8 as a PHP meta-project before she gets down to her jam's Drupal Camp presentation.

The post includes a video of her Drupal Camp session covering the same topic and the slides as presented. This also includes a video of the interview and a link to both the audio file and an in-page audio player.
