Reddit.com:
Any ideas on what "MVC agnostic" PHP code is?
February 06, 2014 @ 10:43:59

On Reddit.com there's a recent post that asks for a bit of clarification about the term "MVC agnostic" as said by a potential employer:

A potential employer wanted to see some of my code before an interview. They originally asked for MVC or OO PHP that I'd written in the last 30 days - fair enough. [...] They've come back to me (via the recruitment agent) asking for some "MVC agnostic code" as no one on staff has worked with codeignitor before. Any ideas what they mean by this as I'm slightly stumped.

Most of the responses to the post suggest something that's becoming more and more of a trend in PHP development lately - framework agnostic development. Basically, this is creating functionality (usually in packages) that can be dropped into any application and used independently.

Other comments suggest other possible definitions like:

  • "This is the first time that I have heard someone mention "MVC agnostic" and on the face of it I would question their own understanding of the phrase."
  • "Yeah, the key bit in your question there was 'via a recruitment agency'. Half of the time, they haven't got a clue about the industry and so jargon gets tossed about something awful."
  • "I think it's more accurate to say that what they want to know is that you actually know PHP, and not merely a set of tools on top of PHP that make you productive in the way you prefer."
