On the 7PHP.com site today Khayrattee Wassem has posted the latest in his PHP community interview series. This time it's with Josh Lockhart, creator of the Slim framework, talking about his experiences as a developer and in working on the open source project. This time the focus is more on the framework than Josh himself, though.
Last time, I’ve introduced the Captain America of The PHP Ecosystem to you, aka Josh Lockhart, via a 7PHP ‘PHP Interview series to help drive thy PHP aspirations‘. This time we go a little bit further with Josh to find out ‘as much as we can‘ about his little masterpiece, I named Slim Framework – the PHP micro framework. Let’s get started..
Josh answers questions about:
- How the framework got started and what was the motivation behind it
- What need the project tries to solve
- Why someone might choose Slim over other frameworks
- How many developers are involved in the project
- What's coming in Slim v3
There's lots more too, so be sure to check out the full post for the answers to these and other interesting (and enlightening) questions.
