The Voices of the ElePHPant podcast has posted their latest episode, another in their series of interviews with members of the PHP community. In this new episode host Cal Evans talks with Anthony Ferrara, a well known member of the community and Director of Engineering for Grovo.
Cal and Anthony talk about his new role at Grovo, a B2B learning company with a focus on professional development (through "microlearning"). They talk about some of the unique challenges they're facing including a legacy codebase and scaling it to the next level. Cal also asks Anthony about his team and how well they follow the ideals of "best practices", but Anthony points out that there's a balance between that and the right tool for the right job. They also talk about a co-worker of his, Yitzchok Willroth, and what he focuses on. Finally, they discuss the controversial RFC that Anthony worked through php.internal and his experience there.
