PHP Town Hall:
Episode 25 Girls Aren't Any Different
May 29, 2014 @ 11:29:04

The PHP Town Hall podcast, with hosts Ben Edmunds and Phil Sturgeon, has posted their latest episode - Episode #25: "Girls Aren't Any Different".

Talking about feminism in tech is always difficult. This episode was quite a heated discussion with Kayla Daniels and Jessica D'Amico discussing their opinions about women-orientated groups such as PHPWomen and Girls Who Code. Kayla wrote an excellent article titled Not a shiny unicorn, in which she made several points. [...] Essentially saying that specialist groups that try to help nurture female involvement can be seen - by some - to be a little patronising, like girls need special help, etc. Also whenever people freakout in the office because there is "a girl" there, things get weird.

While they admit that the session could have been more of a "representative conversation or interesting listening", plenty of points about the topic of feminism in technology-related work are still discussed with some good perspectives on either side. You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page player or by downloading the mp3 (no video for this one, unfortunately).

Three Devs & A Maybe Podcast:
virtPHP with Jacques Woodcock and Ben Ramsey
May 22, 2014 @ 11:08:05

The Three Devs & a Maybe poscast has posted their latest episode, #25, featuring an interview with Jacques Woodcock and Ben Ramsey about the VirtPHP project (among other things).

This week we are very lucky to have Jacques Woodcock and Ben Ramsey from the virtPHP project on the podcast. Similar in nature to Python's 'virtualenv', virtPHP is a tool for creating and managing multiple isolated PHP environments on a single machine. Currently command-line support on *nix based-systems is complete, however, during the show we touch on the challenges in-regard to SAPI support. We then move on to discuss the interesting paths each took to get into development, followed up finally with the weekly quiz.

Other topics discussed include the discussions around the "demise of TDD", php[tek]/php[architect], the PHPNG patch, PHP The Right Way and many others. You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page player or by downloading the mp3 directly.
