The latest episode of the Zend Developer Zone's podcast, PHP Abstract, has been posted. This time it's hosted by Chris Hartjes on the subject of "Opinionated Software".
Today's special guest is Chris Hartjes. Chris has been building PHP applications since 1998. Currently employed as a Senior Developer for the Cake Development Corporation, Chris has been labeled as an "agent provocateur" within the PHP community. He contributes to open source projects, gives lectures on programming-related topics and tries to share what he's learned via his blog.
Opinionated software entails things like frameworks (his specific example is with the CakePHP framework's ActiveRecord functionality) that has a sort of agreement with the developer that things are going to be where it expects them (allowing for less time configuring and more time developing).
