Bastien Labelle's Blog:
Why PHP is So Much Better than Ruby
June 29, 2011 @ 08:40:56

Bastien Labelle has posted a new (tongue-in-cheek) post to his blog today about a presentation he and a friend of his recently gave at a conference - Why PHP is so Much Better than Ruby.

Of course, saying that PHP is so much better than Ruby is pure bullshit, and this talk is, as I hope you guessed, a big big sarcasm. Trolling apart, I think this talk is also quite interesting, since somehow it shows some of the weaknesses of Ruby and its ecosystem.

Included in the post are their slides and a brief transcript of the main points they mentioned. Also interesting are some of the comments mentioning the typing issues the talk discussed and the fact that popularity isn't the same as quality.

Lukas Smith's Blog:
emPHPowering the States and the rest of the world too!
June 06, 2008 @ 11:19:37

Furthering his emPHPower effort, Lukas Smith has issued a callout to all speakers at conferences and bloggers/user groups around the world to try to integrate(or just talk about) the emPHPower movement somewhere in to their community.

In this case the opportunity is that I am (or the community) is forced to find someone else to step up and spread the word. So I am hereby calling out to the community and speakers at North American conferences to try and integrate emPHPower discussions as "official" birds of feather or lightning talks.

As mentioned, his call also includes a suggestion for all PHP user groups out there:

Actually lets make this call a big larger, I call out to all the PHP UGs in the world to talk about emPHPower and blog about their views, concerns, ideas. If you are a member of a large PHP project, also consider to get feedback from its user community.

If you're wondering what the emPHPower movement is all about, check out the group's main site for full details.
