Harrie Verveer's Blog:
The PHP community not just about tree hugging geeks
October 28, 2010 @ 08:42:57

Harrie Verveer has a new post to his blog today talking about how the PHP community is "not just about tree hugging geeks" and good things about the community that is has to offer companies and developers alike.

every once in a while I hear some plea for the great PHP community that makes me a bit nauseous. "Sharing code, knowledge, elePHPants, it's all so fun to share and be part of this great club of lovely people! I share my project with you and you share your project with me. And then we hug! Weeeee!!!" Well f*ck that. [...] So besides the hippy arguments, the PHP community also has some great, more down-to-earth things to offer for companies, developers and everybody else involved.

He's made a list of four things (of the many) that the PHP community offers like being able to contribute to open source projects, being able to open source your own projects, attending the many conferences and user groups to "learn and be inspired" by others and, of course, the great online community in the form of tutorial, IRC channels, mailing lists, etc.
