PHP Town Hall Podcast:
Episode 48: Code of Conduct
Feb 18, 2016 @ 12:45:49

The PHP Town Hall podcast, hosted by PHP community members Phil Sturgeon and Ben Edmunds, has posted their latest episode - a discussion with Jenny Wong about Codes of Conduct and more specifically the effort to try to adopt one for PHP.

Whilst all three of us think a Code of Conduct is a good idea, we talk through some of the various for and against reasoning that people have, and try to outline the logical failures behind some of the FUD being spread around during this discussion.

We cover a few things, from the intent of a Code of Conduct, explain it’s reach is not as scary as many seem to think, outline a few things that a Code of Conduct does not try to do, and talk about some of the problems minorities have at conferences and online which could be simplified over time with a useful CoC.

The goal behind the show is to try and help "open some minds" and bring a constructive approach to discussing the Code of Conduct without the usual (and unfortunate) reactions we've already seen from the community. You can listen to this latest podcast through the in-page video player or directly on YouTube. If you enjoy the show and want to check out past and future shows you can subscribe to their RSS feeds.
