The Artisan Files Yitzchok Willroth
October 24, 2014 @ 12:26:13

On the Laravel News site today they've posted an interview with a member of the PHP community: Yitzchok Willroth, aka @coderrabbi. They talk some about his past, how he came to be a developer and what tools he works with on a daily basis.

This week I'm happy to introduce you to the most interesting developer in the world, Yitzchok Willroth aka @coderabbi. Yitzchok is the organizer of the ShorePHP User Group, an active participant in the PHPMentoring Initiative, and a conference speaker.

They start with a look at his past and how he made the transition over from rabbi to developer, mainly based around a major change in his family's life. He talks about the classes and programs he took to improve his skills and how he found some of his first work. They also talk about his contributions to mentoring other developers and where he sees the value in it. They talk about his upcoming php[world] talk, how he came to find and work with Laravel and what a typical day is like for him and his work.

phpDay 2013 News and Highlights
May 27, 2013 @ 14:49:46

On PHPMaster.com there's a new post from Aurelio De Rosa sharing some of his experiences at this year's phpDay conference.

Conferences play an important role in the process of becoming a better developer. When you attend a conference, you not only have the chance to listen to language or technology experts, but also the chance to meet other developers. This is ideal for expanding your networks of contacts to find, if needed, your next job. Last week I attended the phpDay 2013 conference in Verona and the following are some of the highlights of the talks I attended and what I learned.

The post talks about the two-day conference including details on some of the sessions covering things like PHP 5.5, dependency management with Composer, DevOps and high performance PHP.

Packing more PHP News in your day with PHP Quick Fix
December 07, 2011 @ 11:35:53

If you're a regular reader of PHPDeveloper.org, you know that there's a few articles posted here (almost) daily about what's happening in the PHP world. Unfortunately, this only scratches the surface of the quality content that's out there. In an effort to provide more PHP goodness to the community as a whole, PHP Quick Fix has been launched - a service linking to stories that don't make it on PHPDeveloper.org.

All of the stories on PHP Quick Fix (you can also follow it on twitter) are still hand-selected out of the mounds of PHP content that shows every day to ensure the best quality. There's no automatic syndication here - just more good, useful PHP (and related topics) to add to your day.

Additionally, if you're interested to see how it all works (thanks to a GimmeBar backend) check out this post on blog.phpdeveloper.org.
