In his latest post, Andrei Zmievski notes something that might have slipped through the cracks, but is still worth nothing. Sara Golemon, author of the recently released "Extending and Embedding PHP" book from Sam's Publishing, is joining up with the group at Yahoo!
She notes in her blog entry:
After well over half a decade at the University of California at Berkeley, I'm moving on to greener pastures. Well, maybe not greener (Berkeley is full of evergreens and...other verdant plant substances), but pastures at the very least. Next monday, my life's journy will bring me to that farmland come technopolis known the world over as Silicon Valley. I'll be cubefarming private sector style for one of the few dotcom survivors, a little mom & pop outfit called Yahoo!.
Many congrats to Sara, author of runkit, classkit, ssh2, and other PECL packages as well as a regular contributor to PHP core - enjoy life at the new job and have fun working in the Search & Marketplace Group!
