Jacques Woodcock - The PHP Community Is Much More Than PHP Codes or Frameworks
April 18, 2014 @ 10:14:49

In the latest in their series of PHP community interviews, the 7PHP.com talks with Jacques Woodcock one of the leaders in the Nashville PHP community and of the Nashville PHP User Group (see his previous interview for more on that). In this interview they focus on some quotes from Jacques posted on the SouthernAlpha startup Twitter account about giving back to the community.

The 'level of wisdom' in them was too strong to be left there, I had to bring it out and I'm thankful to Jacques 'TheKit' Guy for sharing with me (and hence you) his precious experience he gained down the years and elaborating more on those quotes.

They go through each of the quotes and let Jacques expand on them a bit - why he got started with the community, some ways that people can get involved in their local group and remembering that a community is made up of more than just single actors.

phpBB Participates in the Google Summer of Code
March 13, 2014 @ 11:54:24

As is mentioned in this new post to the phpBB forums, the project is participating in the Google Summer of Code project this year. phpBB is one of the longest running, widely used open source PHP forums software.

With two years of participation under our belt, I am glad to announce that phpBB is once again taking part in the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program this year. Google's Summer of Code program encourages students to get involved in free and open source software (F/OSS) by pairing them up with experienced mentors in popular F/OSS projects.

If you're interested in working on the phpBB project this year, check out their Ideas page for some examples of things they're wanting to work on. You'll need to be familiar with the git version control system to do the work and will need to apply to be considered for this year's event.

New Media Campaigns:
An Interview With the Founder of the Slim Framework for PHP
February 07, 2014 @ 11:55:29

On the New Media Campaigns site today they've posted an interview they did with Josh Lockhart, the lead developer behind the Slim PHP framework project. In it they talk some about his own experience and the framework, both past and future plans.

We have long been proponents of team members spending a portion of their time at NMC to work on side projects they're passionate about. The policy has been a great success, and we make many of the projects available to other developers, designers, and marketers. [...] One of the most successful projects is the Slim framework for PHP built by Josh. Josh noticed a void in PHP and decided to fill it by building his own framework. He collaborated not only with NMC'ers but also with programmers around the world to build Slim.

They start by getting to know Josh a bit, talking about his background in PHP and the origins of the Slim framework. They move on to talk specifically about the framework and what originally pushed him to create it. The interview also talks about how his work has affected both the community as a whole and his own current work.

He also offers two pieces of advice for beginning PHP developers:

For developers new to PHP, I encourage you to spend more time learning the HTTP protocol rather than focus too much on learning the PHP language. Obviously, you have to know PHP, but don't spend all your time doing so. [...] Also, join your local PHP User Group. Believe it or not, there are likely lots of fellow PHP developers nearby. If not, you can join the online Nomad PHP User Group.

7PHP.com:
What Is An UnConference (uncon) & How Is It Different From A Conference?
January 16, 2014 @ 09:18:57

If you've ever attended a conference (or are planning on it in the near future) you may have heard of something called an "unconference". If you're not 100% clear on what it is, check out this new interview with Michelangelo van Dam.

Have you been to an unconference aka uncon? I have not unfortunately (at least not yet)! But I was curious of what it actually is, the benefit you can reap from it, the responsibilities that it presents and how it's different from a conference. I started looking around of a possible interview (with uncon organizers around) about it since last year. But this year, 2014, I was adamant of getting it rolling.

To concretise this wish, the perfect man for it was Michelangelo! Perfect because he never turns down an opportunity to share his knowledge and wisdom with The PHP Community and also mainly because he has organized and participated at so many different uncons. Besides, he's the founder and co-leader of the PHP-BENELUX user-group - the level of insight and advice that you get from him is invaluable and of high quality.

They start off with a bit of talk about Michelangelo's background as a developer and his involvement in the PHP community. There's also a bit about the Zend Certification Exam and the PHPWomen group. Finally, they get into the unconference - what it is, what kind of content you can expect and how you can get involved in one at your next conference.
