Cal also asks Josh about a specific thing to keep an eye out for - in his example, it's handling exceptions thrown in your application correctly.

The /Dev/Hell podcast has posted their latest episode with hosts Chris Hartjes and Ed Finkler: Episode #64, Dogs Using iPads. This month they're joined by guest Joe Ferguson, a well-known developer and speaker in the PHP community.

We recorded this ep with special guest Joe Ferguson about a month ago, but all sorts of family stuff delayed the release of this and Episode 63 (which we just released last week). On this episode we talk canine gold farming, bald eagles and beavers, how Joe secretly controls NomadPHP MC, NomadJS, and MemphisPHP, whether you’re supposed to drink Magners over ice, and how great Chris Cornutt is. We talked about more stuff but I got tired of writing things down.
