The latest PHP Town Hall podcast has officially been posted, Episode #34 - a /Dev/Hell Mashup but hosts Phil Sturgeon and Ben Edmunds. The /Dev/Hell podcast is hosted by two other PHP community members Chris Hartjes and Ed Finkler.
This is a big one. We've had Chris "The Grumpy Programmer" Hartjes and Ed "The Grumpy Podcaster" Finkler on our show before, but this time they both join us for a mashup! We talk about the perils of being opinionated people speaking in public. Chris basically just says fuck Reddit and all of its minions of evil, and Phil gives a bit of insight into why he gets stuck in so many arguments.
We move on to chatting about PHP, and how people feel about a strong new demand for more async features. Is it better to leave that to other tools, or should we try and fit some into the language itself, and the ecosystem around it? The last chunk of this podcast ends with a discussion around CodeIgniter 3.0 supporting PHP 5.2 and up. Should it be higher?
You can listen to the recording in a few different ways - either through the in-page audio-only player, by downloading the mp3 or you can watch the video from the Google Hangouts recording of the episode. If you enjoy the episode, be sure to subscribe to their feed.
