On 7php.com there's a new interview with a member of the PHP community - this time it's with Rafael Dohms, formerly of the Brazilian PHP community, he now lives in Amsterdam and is active in the European PHP scene.
In this edition I talked with Rafael Dohms ( @rdohms ), The Brazilian PHP Evangelist. He is to the PHP Community and specially to The Brazilian PHP Community, what Brazilian Ronaldo is to the Football World! He has founded two PHP user-groups and is seen as an AWESOME active member of the PHP Community; he is also an active contributor to some conspicuous open-source PHP projects as you will found out for yourself in this interview. Rafael is very passionate about helping out fellow developers generously; you can read more about him on his personal website/blog.
In his answers, Rafael talks about things like:
- Some of his first experiences with PHP (including a CounterStrike clan website)
- His recommendation of the book "The Art of Readable Code"
- His favorite conference (hint: It's in Chicago each year)
- His recommendation for less arguments in the community
- Thoughts on PHP 5.4 and its features
- Some of his experiences with both starting and being a member of various PHP user groups
