PHP-FIG Voting on PSR-4 Opened
September 20, 2013 @ 12:18:31

The PHP-FIG has officially started the voting process for the PSR-4 autoloading standard that would provide an interface to make autoloading a bit more standardized across applications.

The purpose is to specify the rules for an interoperable PHP autoloader that maps namespaces to file system paths, and that can co-exist with any other SPL registered autoloader. This would be an addition to, not a replacement for, PSR-0.

The current autoloading standard definition (PSR-0) still allows for the use of the underscore in class names to resolve to directory paths in the application's files. In this new standard, that allowance is gone, relying only on the actual namespacing to define package pathing. This "package-oriented autoloading" is set to help move PHP package development forward into a more standardized structure.

Interview With Michelangelo van Dam - President Of PHPBenelux PHP Use
January 23, 2012 @ 12:55:02

On 7php.com today there's a new community interview - this time it's with Michelangelo van Dam, the President of the PHPBenelux user group and well known PHP speaker/community advocate.

In this edition, I talked with Michelangelo van Dam a senior PHP/Zend Framework consultant. This man really needs no introduction; he is so much of an invaluable asset to the PHP community. As per wefollow.com, he is ranked as the 4th (out of 113) most influential person on Twitter for #zendframework and as the 25th (out of 2,543) most influential person for #php

Questions in the interview cover everything from a bit of history about Michelangelo out to how supportive the PHP community is:

Give and expect nothing in return. People appreciate it more when you give something from the heart instead of giving something as a favor for a future return.

Other questions touch on his "community animal" nickname, his community/life balance and his tracking of the work Microsoft is doing to help the PHP language.
