Voices of the ElePHPant:
Interview with Matthew Weier O'Phinney
June 16, 2015 @ 09:11:21

The Voices of the ElePHPant podcast has posted their latest episode interviewing a member of the PHP community. This time host Cal Evans talks with Matthew Weier O'Phinney of the Zend Framework team.

In this new episode Cal and Matthew talk about a conversation they were involved in about Conduit, a "middleware for PHP" project. It came from some of his testing with Node.js and wondering why PHP didn't have something similar. This lead to the PSR-7 proposal from the PHP-FIG group with a standardized HTTP request and response structure. They also talk about how these concepts are being integrated into frameworks like Zend Framework and how it's helping improve performance. They also talk about how this move will effect major projects like WordPress or Drupal. They wrap things up talking about Zend Framework v3 and the work that's currently being done to split up the components and lock down the framework as a "meta-package" with specific versions of the components.

You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page audio player or by downloading the mp3 for listening at your leisure. If you enjoy the show, be sure to subscribe to their feed to get this and future episodes as they're released.

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the language we all know and love (or love to hate) - PHP. Rasmus Lerdorf started the language to "scratch an itch" he needed to make a more dynamic web site. It's grown over the last twenty years into one of the most popular web programming languages. Several members of the PHP community have posted some of their own thoughts about the event:

Acquia Blog:
PHP Reset, PHP Renaissance Unify everything in PHP with Composer
April 30, 2015 @ 08:19:15

On the Acquia blog there's a new post today with another of Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire's interviews with a member of the PHP community. In this latest interview he talks with Jordi Boggiano, a lead developer on the Composer project that's changed the way people use and install PHP packages.

It was great to get the chance to sit down and talk with Jordi Boggiano at SymfonyCon Madrid 2014. Jordi is responsible for Composer, one of the most important pieces of technology that is driving PHP interoperability and the PHP "renaissance" of the last couple of years. He's also on the Symfony2 core team.

Jeffrey gives a brief overview of some of the main points that Jordi makes in his interview including the suggestion of "using what you know" and thinking of the people/users of the tool, not just the technology of it. He also mentions Jordi's response to the "PHP Renaissance" (and note that he sees it as more of a PHP Reset instead). You can watch the full interview video either through the embedded player or on YouTube, You can also use the in-page audio player or download the mp3 if you'd like an audio-only version.
