Episode 71: Bespoke Tokens
Feb 03, 2016 @ 09:23:39

The /Dev/Hell podcast, hosted by PHP community members Chris Hartjes and Ed Finkler, has posted their latest episode - Episode 71: Bespoke Tokens.

On this episode you get twice the guest because we invited two of the three folks behind WonderNetworks to join us.

Paul Reinheimer and Gemma Anible came on (and even did video via Skype so they could tell when we were getting bored) and talked about how WonderNetworks got started, Paul and Gemma’s preferred development style and Paul seemed determined (as he always is) to tweak Chris.

Topics mentioned in the episode include (obviously) WonderProxy, space leggings, BulletPHP and PHP-GTK. You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page audio player or by downloading the mp3. Be sure to subscribe to their feed if you enjoy the episode and want yo hear more.

Episode 70: Anti-Canuckite Leanings
Jan 26, 2016 @ 12:19:23

The /Dev/Hell podcast, hosted by PHP community members Ed Finkler and Chris Hartjes has posted their latest episode: Episode #70: Anti-Canuckite Leanings.

During the discussions for topics for this episode, Chris went to the bathroom for some quiet time. When he came back Ed had asked dedicated grumpy-Canadian hater Amanda Folson to join this episode to talk a bit about the life of a developer evangelist, Greg LeMonde, the Battle for PHP CoC, how Composer saved PHP, and CodeMash.

Along the way Amanda and Ed ganged up on Chris showing their hatred for their peace-loving neighbours north of the 49th parallel and during the aftershow drove him away with talk about audio recording equipment.
