Three Devs & A Maybe Podcast:
The PHP-FIG/RFC, CodeIgniter 3 and PyroCMS with Phil Sturgeon
June 16, 2014 @ 09:42:13

The Three Devs & A Maybe podcast has released a new episode, #29 - The PHP-FIG/RFC, CodeIgniter 3 and PyroCMS with Phil Sturgeon with (obviously) guest Phil Sturgeon.

This week we are lucky to have the one n' only Phil Sturgeon on the show. Starting off conversation with how he got into programming, we move on to his time using and contributing to the CodeIngiter and FuelPHP projects. This leads us on to discuss the current status of CodeIgniter 3.0 and his experiences with porting PyroCMS to Laravel. Among other things we then touch upon the 'Wordpress positive feedback loop', the PHP-FIG (Framework Interop Group) and the PHP-RFC (Request for Comments) process. We wrap up the show with some sound and interesting advice to any budding/new developer.

Besides Phil's own background and PyroCMS they also talk about CodeIgniter, PHP: The Right Way, methods on primitive types and PHPBridge. You can listen to this episode either using the in-page player or by downloading the mp3. You can also subscribe to their feed for this and other great shows.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
PHP The Right Way The Book
February 03, 2014 @ 12:05:57

On the SitePoint PHP blog today Bruno Skvorc talks about one of the best resources out there for people new to the PHP language (or even those wanting to hone their skills) - PHP: The Right Way. In his post he talks about the guide, it being published on LeanPub and where the proceeds from the book are going.

We can't keep the newbies away, and we can't educate the clients because most clients learn exclusively on mistakes. Shared host environments are also to blame, because their plans seldom include the most recent version of PHP, and are, due to price and ease of use, still the preferred hosting solution for legions of newcomers. So what can we do to spread best practices?

PTRW is a community effort, a website built entirely around spreading best up-to-date PHP practices. It's far from exhaustive - instead, it tries to bullet-list the things you should pay attention to, and links to quality resources where one can learn more about the various aspects it covers.

The book is an online resource, but it's been put on LeanPub to make it more portable and available offline. Since the book is a community resource and no one person should make the money from it, the choice was made to have all proceeds go to the Electronic Frontier Foundation. He finishes off the post with a brief interview with the book's maintainers Phil Sturgeon and Josh Lockhart.

7PHP.com:
PHP Interview With Phil Sturgeon The Man Behind PyroCMS
June 24, 2013 @ 10:41:04

On 7PHP.com Khayrattee Wassem has posted another interview with a member of the PHP community. This time it's with Phil Sturgeon, the developer behind the PyroCMS project.

In this edition I talked with Phil Sturgeon who is the founder of the CMS named as PyroCMS. He also wrote a book about it called "Catapult into PyroCMS". @Philsturgeon is very much involved in The PHP Community; he regularly participates in conferences, is a prominent voice and voting member of The PHP-Fig (aka the PHP Framework Interop Group, I also asked him a few questions about it) and he has been amongst the core contributors of PHP Frameworks like CodeIgniter (CI) and FuelPHP, although he is now opening his arms towards Laravel PHP framework (the PHP Framework for Web Artisans). On the professional scene, he is the Lead Engineer at Kapture.

They talk some about his background, how he got involved in the PHP community and some of his thoughts about PHP's growth during that time. He includes some advice to developers just getting their start (including some good resources) and some of the tools he uses in his development. There's a bit towards the end about Phil's involvement in the PHP-FIG and some of his involvement in conferences around the world.

PHP Town Hall Podcast:
Episode #7 - Web Sockets Are Fast
May 20, 2013 @ 11:41:55

The PHP Town Hall podcast has posted a new episode - Episode #7: "Web Sockets Are Fast".

Chris Boden joins us to talk about a Ratchet and React. The conversation is basically Ben and Phil asking a bunch of questions about how Ratchet works, pretending we know what is going on while Chris uses lots of words like "concurrency" and "non-blocking". We decide that PHP is web-scale, event-driven programming is not just for NodeJS hipsters, we all take the "Are You a Brogrammer" test and Michael Wales crashes the show half way through like a ninja.

You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page player or by downloading the episode directly. You can also subscribe to their feed if you'd like the latest shows as they're released.

Phil Sturgeon:
Why some people hate PHP
December 03, 2012 @ 13:22:19

Phil Sturgeon has reposted an answer he gave in response to this Quroa entry about why people "think PHP sucks".

There are a lot of reasons people "hate" PHP, or at least look down on it. Some of them are founded, some are not, and some of them are circumstantial.

He mentions seven of the reasons people commonly give for not liking PHP:

  • "Inconsistent haystack / needle"
  • PHP is a HTML file, with logic
  • No standards
  • Lack of Quality Packages
  • Misconception (about the current PHP features)
  • You were doing it wrong
  • Elitism ("not using PHP is cool")

There's even more discussion happening on the subject in this reddit post with thoughts from both PHP and non-PHP developers.

Derick Allard's Blog:
CodeIgniter Podcast Episode #4
November 25, 2010 @ 10:07:04

The latest episode of the CodeIgniter Podcast was released yesterday and a guest on the show was Derick Allard, a former EllisLab-er. On Derick's blog there's a new post with his take on being a guest.

Yesterday I had a chance to sit down and do Episode#4 of the CodeIgniter Podcast with Phil Sturgeon and Kenny Meyers. It was a blast! [...] In my opinion, the best part of any free-flow discussion like a podcast is that you get the (reasonably) unfiltered thoughts of people who are just plain excited by what they do.

You can find this latest episode here.
