043: A Lone Star PHP 2016 Special
Apr 15, 2016 @ 09:22:43

The PHP Roundtable podcast has posted their latest episode recorded live at the Lone Star PHP Conference that just happened in Dallas, Texas. In it host Sammy Powers is joined by a big cast of characters: Chris Tankersley, Anthony Ferrara, Jeremy Mikola, Elizabeth Smith, Daniel Cousineau, Magnus Nordlander and Jared Farrish.

We record live from Lone Star PHP 2016 in Dallas, TX. We discuss what DI Containers aren't, tradeoffs to making things easy, how to improve your dev skills, repercussions of depending on Composer, PHP 7.1 features and we give away a white Confoo elePHPant.

Unfortunately the internet connection at the venue wasn't great, so the video/audio quality is a bit lacking. You can still watch and listen to the episode through the in-page audio and video player or directly on YouTube. If you enjoy the show, be sure to subscribe to their feed and follow them on Twitter to get the latest updates when new shows are released (and when they're recording).
