Laravel News:
Building a culture of trust: Why sharing is good for you and your career
Dec 12, 2016 @ 11:20:17

On the Laravel News site there's a recent post by Sharon Steed talking about building a culture of trust and why sharing is good on both a personal and corporate level for your career (and not just in technology).

I speak about empathy on teams and why vulnerability is a great asset in your professional life. Sharing ideas falls right in line with my own ideology, but I also understand why people are so terrified to offer up opinions.

[...] I’m constantly amazed at how many people refuse to talk about projects they are working on for fear of others trying to swipe the idea. I’m even more so surprised at people who go out of their way to not share ideas with bosses or coworkers. Yes, there is absolutely a chance that someone else will take credit for that idea. The nature of working with other people, however, is that of collaboration.

She goes on to give some example situations, how sharing and trust between people plays and role and how many are realizing the value of being open. She gives examples of companies that are following this same idea on a corporate level like Buffer, Zappos and Landmark (an oil and gas software company). She ends the post with some practical advice on how you can help foster this culture of trust in your own company and career.

PHP Is Going Corporate with Help from Zend, Adobe, and...Microsoft?
Sep 25, 2008 @ 12:05:14

According to some statistics gathered by the Gartner Research group, PHP is trending more towards being found in the enterprise:

A recent Gartner Research study found that 10 percent of the PHP community are corporate IT developers, and predicted that during the next five years, that number will grow to 40 percent. That's good news for PHP developers looking for corporate gigs--and very good news for PHP tools maker Zend Technologies, which cited the Gartner finding at the Zend/PHP Conference last week as evidence of widespread, more strategic adoption of PHP in enterprises.

Much of this has to do with Zend's products and their placement in more enterprise settings as well as the collaborations they've created with several key big-name players like Adobe, IBM and Dojo (as a part of the Zend Framework). There's also a mention of some of Microsoft's initiatives in the PHP community including work on the FastCGI component and a SQL Server driver for PHP.

php|architect:
Are We Losing LAMP?
Jun 25, 2006 @ 16:49:18

The latest offering from the php|architect A/R/T article repository is this column from the editor, Marco Tabini. In it, he asks (and answers) the question "Are We Losing LAMP?".

In a recent post to a blog that was reported in our news, author Cliff Wells claims that the light has gone out on LAMP. I have addressed enough of these articles in the past--as have many others who know a log more about technology than I do--and I am not really going to address another one here. In fact, I am only going to use it for that most human of human forms of expression: imitation.

Marco talks about how, while the PHP community on the whole has been lucky as far as its partnerships and contributions from larger entities, there might come a time later on when these same alliances could stir up trouble. He does suggest somewhat of a solution, though - three actually, some a bit more plausable than others. (You'll have to check out the article to get those, though!)
