Apr 04, 2016 @ 12:13:28

php[architect] magazine has released their latest issue for April 2016 - Off the Island: Drupal:

I’m excited to see the Drupal and PHP communities building bridges to collaborate (“Getting off the island” as Larry Garfield likes to say) and also learn from each other. This month, we’ll look at how the Drupal project has embraced tools and techniques like object-oriented programming and Composer.

This month's edition includes articles about:

  • Drupal 8 Module Development
  • Composer and Drupal 8
  • Drupal Security & Vulnerability Management (this month's free article)
  • Generating documentation from source code

As usual, the regular columns have come back for another edition - Community Corner, Security Corner, Education Station and Leveling Up. You can get a copy of this issue for your very own directly from the php[architect] site or pick up a yearly subscription while you're there.

Weca.mp Announced
Mar 21, 2014 @ 11:33:30

A new PHP-oriented conference has been announce, but this one has a bit of a twist. Weca.mp is taking place on an island and, instead of passively listening to speakers, attendees will "develop awesome stuff" with PHP.

WeCamp is a new event focusing on not just hearing about cool technology, but also applying it. During the 5 days of the event, you'll get to work on a project together with 4 random other people, under the guidance of an experienced coach. Together with your team mates, you'll work on improving both your technical skills while developing on the project as well as your soft-skills in managing the project and communicating with your team members.

The focus of the event is different than the usual conference-goer might be used to. It puts an emphasis on a work/relaxation mix with several activities besides things tech-related. Attendees will share tents ("glamping" style) with others for each evening of this five-day event and several "coaches" will be on hand to help guide activities. If you're interested check out the conference site or just pick up your tickets now - Early Bird is already sold out!
