Lately in PHP Podcast #47 - PHP is the Best Competitor of PHP
May 23, 2014 @ 11:20:56

The PHPClasses.org site has released the latest episode of their "Lately in PHP" podcast series today - Episode #47: PHP is the Best Competitor of PHP.

PHP developments gained new life thanks mostly to Facebook Hack language and Zend reaction with PHPNG. Since Facebook Hack is mostly a fork of PHP, it seems PHP is the main competitor of PHP. These developments were one of the main topics discussed by Manuel Lemos and Michael Kimsal in the episode 47 of the Lately in PHP podcast. They also discussed new proposals for the next PHP versions like negative string offsets, offsets to Reset() and End(), a mail handling interface similar to session handlers, error handling in PHP.next, and return type hinting declarations.

You can listen to this latest episode in one of a few ways: either using the in-page audio player, by downloading the mp3 or by watching the live recording of the episode on YouTube.

Indieconf - A Conference for Independent (Technology) Contractors
September 10, 2010 @ 08:20:44

Michael Kimsal has submitted some info about a conference that he and others in the Raleigh, NC area will be putting on targeting independent web professionals - a single day event with twelve different sessions aimed directly at folks out on their own - indieconf.

indieconf is a conference for independent web professionals. Whether you're a full time freelancer or part time contractor, designer or developer, you'll find something for you at indieconf. Web and tech conferences have traditionally focused on the technical side of things. While the sessions are often useful, they don't often address the realities of living as an independent.

The event will be happening November 13th with a $99 USD Early Bird rate (before September 25th). Snacks and drinks will be provided during the event, but there will also be a Friday night dinner with all attendees and speakers. The event will be on the University of North Carolina campus in the McKimmon Center. For more information about the conference, check out it's site!

Doug Brown's Blog:
Review PHP Job Hunter's Handbook
August 28, 2008 @ 13:07:07

Doug Brown has posted a new review of a book by Michael Kimsal, the "PHP Job Hunter's Handbook" (from php|architect publishing).

Michael Kimsal's new book, PHP Job Hunter's Handbook. I pre-ordered this book a few months ago, and read the PDF version all the way through before I received my hard copy. [...] It wouldn't be extreme to go as far as saying that the book covers too much territory, but for it only being 106 pages, it's a fair conclusion.

Doug lists some of these topics (like how to find a full-time job, contracting, freelancing and some advice from other developers/those on the hiring side). He looks at what it does have and doesn't have as well as his recommendation on if you should buy it or not.

More on the PHP Wiki
March 11, 2008 @ 12:07:00

Both Lukas Smith and Michael Kimsal are talking about a new project started up by the PHP development group to help provide more information to the users (and other developers) of the PHP language - the PHP.net wiki.

Michael comments:

This has been a long time coming and I'm glad to see it in place. I hope it will continue to help open up the development process to a larger audience. [...] This is definitely a large step for the project and I hope it'll get traction and become one of the key tools used to drive PHP forward.

And Lukas talks more about the planning behind the project:

So things are moving forward. Thanks to Pierre who set up a dokuwiki on the libgd server (if you are unware libgd is now a subproject of php.net) and Hannes for setting up a new auth API against the master.php.net user database we have a wiki up and running on wiki.php.net. [...] I am quite happy that we managed to get this far.

You can check out the wiki yourself at wiki.php.net.
