The latest episode of the PHP Town Hall podcast has been released - Episode 5, "PHPness Gate, Sexism and Mental Illness". The usual hosts, Phil Sturgeon and Ben Edmunds, are joined by Ed Finkler and Mike Federmann to talk about recent events in the PHP community.
This was a tricky episode where we talk about some big genuine issues that affect PHP developers around the world, and we talked a lot about a t-shirt. After Chris Hartjes cheated on his /dev/hell podcast by joining us in Episode 3, Chris’ partner in crime Ed “Funkatron” Finkler decided to get revenge and come on the show. Our other guest Miko Federmann is a brilliant PHP and C developer who is a friend of Phil and Ben. She joins us on the show to discuss the recent hullabaloo known as “PHPness Gate” and the obviously connected issue of sexism in the industry.
