June 30, 2014 @ 09:30:35

The PHP Town Hall podcast is back with their latest episode, number 27, featuring two special guests: Jeremy Mikola and Josh Lockhart.

This episode is a long one, but we are back to improved audio and the video is not just one dude eating pizza for an hour. Josh Lockhart of PHP The Right Way and Slim fame, and Jeremy Mikola who is well known for banging on about clouds and playing magic the gathering. Oh, he also works for MongoDB.

The episode's discussion includes a wide range of topics (and plenty of rambling) about things like plans for Slim 3, Silex vs Slim, PHP The Right Way, Illuminate/Pagination and difficulties around pull requests. You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page player, by downloading the mp3 or you can watch the video of the live Google Hangout recording.

7PHP.com:
A Comprehensive Interview About Slim The Micro PHP Framework
June 24, 2014 @ 10:42:35

On the 7PHP.com site today Khayrattee Wassem has posted the latest in his PHP community interview series. This time it's with Josh Lockhart, creator of the Slim framework, talking about his experiences as a developer and in working on the open source project. This time the focus is more on the framework than Josh himself, though.

Last time, I've introduced the Captain America of The PHP Ecosystem to you, aka Josh Lockhart, via a 7PHP 'PHP Interview series to help drive thy PHP aspirations'. This time we go a little bit further with Josh to find out 'as much as we can' about his little masterpiece, I named Slim Framework - the PHP micro framework. Let's get started..

Josh answers questions about:

  • How the framework got started and what was the motivation behind it
  • What need the project tries to solve
  • Why someone might choose Slim over other frameworks
  • How many developers are involved in the project
  • What's coming in Slim v3

There's lots more too, so be sure to check out the full post for the answers to these and other interesting (and enlightening) questions.

Josh Lockhart - Find Good Online Resources And Communities & Use Them To Your Advantage
April 28, 2014 @ 09:17:41

7PHP.com has posted their latest community interview, this time with Josh Lockhart, an author behind the PHP The Right Way project and the Slim microframework. They talk some about his history with PHP, some thoughts on the current state of the language and resources/tools he recommends.

Someone finally took the responsibility to make things go in The Right Direction. And this man, this brave man, this 'super-hero' is here to make a change happen - he is named Mr Josh Lockhart. He is The Captain America of The PHP Community! Josh came forward with a convincing righful movement (if I can allow myself to tag it as such) to help PHP-ers get a sense of good direction when it comes to 'dealing with/and taming' PHP as a tool to make good software. This initiative is named as PHP The Right Way!

Josh answers other questions about his preference in environments, what he sees as the good and bad of PHP and his overall feel of the PHP community and where he feels e fits.

New Media Campaigns:
An Interview With the Founder of the Slim Framework for PHP
February 07, 2014 @ 11:55:29

On the New Media Campaigns site today they've posted an interview they did with Josh Lockhart, the lead developer behind the Slim PHP framework project. In it they talk some about his own experience and the framework, both past and future plans.

We have long been proponents of team members spending a portion of their time at NMC to work on side projects they're passionate about. The policy has been a great success, and we make many of the projects available to other developers, designers, and marketers. [...] One of the most successful projects is the Slim framework for PHP built by Josh. Josh noticed a void in PHP and decided to fill it by building his own framework. He collaborated not only with NMC'ers but also with programmers around the world to build Slim.

They start by getting to know Josh a bit, talking about his background in PHP and the origins of the Slim framework. They move on to talk specifically about the framework and what originally pushed him to create it. The interview also talks about how his work has affected both the community as a whole and his own current work.

He also offers two pieces of advice for beginning PHP developers:

For developers new to PHP, I encourage you to spend more time learning the HTTP protocol rather than focus too much on learning the PHP language. Obviously, you have to know PHP, but don't spend all your time doing so. [...] Also, join your local PHP User Group. Believe it or not, there are likely lots of fellow PHP developers nearby. If not, you can join the online Nomad PHP User Group.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
PHP The Right Way The Book
February 03, 2014 @ 12:05:57

On the SitePoint PHP blog today Bruno Skvorc talks about one of the best resources out there for people new to the PHP language (or even those wanting to hone their skills) - PHP: The Right Way. In his post he talks about the guide, it being published on LeanPub and where the proceeds from the book are going.

We can't keep the newbies away, and we can't educate the clients because most clients learn exclusively on mistakes. Shared host environments are also to blame, because their plans seldom include the most recent version of PHP, and are, due to price and ease of use, still the preferred hosting solution for legions of newcomers. So what can we do to spread best practices?

PTRW is a community effort, a website built entirely around spreading best up-to-date PHP practices. It's far from exhaustive - instead, it tries to bullet-list the things you should pay attention to, and links to quality resources where one can learn more about the various aspects it covers.

The book is an online resource, but it's been put on LeanPub to make it more portable and available offline. Since the book is a community resource and no one person should make the money from it, the choice was made to have all proceeds go to the Electronic Frontier Foundation. He finishes off the post with a brief interview with the book's maintainers Phil Sturgeon and Josh Lockhart.
