Three Devs & A Maybe Podcast:
Laravel, Forge and Homestead with Taylor Otwell
July 10, 2014 @ 10:42:44

The Three Devs & A Maybe podcast has posted a new episode with special guest Taylor Otwell of Laravel framework fame. In this latest episode (#33) they talk with him about the framework, the Forge product and the Homestead project (a packaged VM environment ready to host Laravel applications).

This week we are very lucky to have the creator of Laravel, Taylor Otwell on the show. Starting off with his journey into the world of programming (through .NET), we move on to discuss how Laravel came to being. We then touch upon our experiences experimenting with different programming stacks, and what features of C# he would like to see introduced into PHP. Finally, we ask Taylor what resources he would recommend to someone just starting out in the industry.

Other topics mentioned in this episode include the Laracasts website, FuelPHP and PhoneGap. You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page player or by downloading the mp3 directly. You should also consider subscribing to their feed to get the latest shows as they're released.

NetTuts.com:
A BDD Workflow With Behat and Phpspec
July 04, 2014 @ 14:20:23

NetTuts.com has posted a new tutorial today showing a sample testing BDD workflow using the Behat and PHPSpec testing tools. The BDD (behavior-driven development) approach focuses on using test-driven development and domain-driven design rather than just a unit testing approach.

In this tutorial, we will have a look at two different BDD tools, Behat and phpspec, and see how they can support you in your development process. Learning BDD can be confusing. New methodology, new tools and many questions, such as "what to test?" and "which tools to use?". I hope that this rather simple example will give you ideas to how you can incorporate BDD into your own workflow.

The article isn't a "getting started with BDD" guide, so you'll need to know a bit about the ideas and process before getting into it. He starts with a look at the workflow Taylor Otwell (his inspiration for this) uses and how to install Behat and get to work on a first feature file. He describes the thought process behind the steps and some of the PHP code required to make them work. He then gets to the use of phpspec to mock out a needed "Config" dependency. He works though the rest of the tests and includes the output when all tests are passing.

PHP Town Hall:
Episode #16 Laravel 4.1, Go and the Vagrant Fistfight
December 03, 2013 @ 11:16:19

The PHP Town Hall podcast has released their latest show - Episode #16, "Laravel 4.1, Go and the Vagrant Fistfight" with guests Taylor Otwell and Zack Kitzmiller.

Taylor was the first guest we ever had on PHP Town Hall talking about his plans for Laravel 4 before it was even released, so it gives us a great opportunity to look back on the year and see how things have gone. We discuss the changes to Laravel and it's community, and discuss how various changes in the PHP ecosystem (like PHP 5.3 support becoming less of a demand) could effect Laravel 4.1.

You can listen to this latest episode in a few ways - either through the in-page player, by downloading the mp3 or, if you prefer, watching the live video recording as aired on a Google Hangout. If you enjoy the show, be sure to subscribe to their feed too.

"Laravel From Apprentice To Artisan" Book Release
July 17, 2013 @ 10:31:41

As is mentioned on Reddit.com, Taylor Otwell (author of the Laravel framework) has released his latest book about the architecture of Laravel applications.

Written by the creator of Laravel, this is the definitive guide to advanced application development with Laravel 4. Learn about dependency injection, interfaces, service providers, SOLID design, and more while exploring practical, real-world code examples. Whether you're building a robust, large application with the Laravel framework, or just want to sharpen your software design chops, this book will be of great value to you and your team.

The book covers a lot of common architecture concepts too, not just things specific to Laravel like:

  • Interfaces as contracts
  • Working with service providers
  • the Single Responsibility Principle
  • the Interface Segregation Principle
  • the Dependency Inversion Principle

You might notice that those last few chapters are actually covering the SOLID design principles. You can pick up the book over on Leanpub.

7php.com:
PHP Interview with Taylor Otwell - The Creator of the Laravel Framework
June 11, 2012 @ 09:51:24

On the 7php.com site today they've picked back up with their "PHP community interviews" series with this latest interview - a few answers from Taylor Otwell, the creator of the Laravel framework.

In this edition I talked with Taylor Otwell {@taylorotwell}, the man behind Laravel (created in April of 2011) which is a PHP 5.3+ Framework. Taylor is a .NET developer who specializes in elegant, intuitive software. The fact that he comes from a .NET background and he produces such an excellent, solid PHP framework with good standards, is something very inspiring and amazing. His framework, Laravel is very unique in itself and has an awesome community behind; Laravel is getting a lot of momentum and is on its way to being one (or is already?) of the most awesome PHP 5.3 framework.

Some of Taylor's answers cover things like:

  • His advice to budding PHP developers
  • His admiration for Fabien Potencier
  • His work in .NET as a "day job"
  • Details about the Laravel framework (and trials along the road to its development)

You can read the full interview here.
