PHPBuilder.com Founder Passes Away, Leaves Indelible Legacy in FLOSS Development
October 12, 2011 @ 10:41:44

Sad news today from PHPBuilder.com - Tim Perdue, the founder of the PHPBuilder.com site and contributor to the SourceForge project as one of the original developers has passed away at 37.

The PHPBuilder staff was saddened to learn that the founder of our site, Tim Perdue, passed away on September 16 , 2011, after a battle with cancer. At only 37 years of age, Tim's passing came much too soon, but his contributions to the PHP and open source communities assure him a lasting legacy.

Related posts include this tribute from his company, GForge and this article from Jake Ludington on LockerGnome. Digging through our own archives, I found this interview with him back in 2002 (an archive.org link, the original is no longer there).

Floss Weekly Rasmus Review
August 15, 2006 @ 11:16:44

After listening to the FLOSS interview with Rasmus Lerdorf, Jacob Santos has some of his own comments and thoughts (and misconceptions) the interview brought out.

He covers it in a few different points:

  • I Thought Rasmus Was a Jerk
  • PHP History: Damn You PHP Manual
  • Personal Home Pages or PHP Hypertext Preprocessor Namespaces in PHP 6
  • Rasmus Still Works on PHP?
  • Open Source Burnout
For each, he explains how the interview helped to set his thoughts straight, especially in his opinions of Rasmus himself.

On Aaron Wormus' blog, there's a note about a new podcast interview with everyone's favorite language creator, Rasmus Lerdorf by Chris DiBona and Leo Laporte.

Our favorite BDFL talks about PHP on the most recent issue of FLOSS Weekly. Nice easy-going discussion about the genesis of PHP as well as other related technologies.

Aaron also mentions some of the "interesting tidbits" that he picked up while listening. Their talk includes the history of PHP, the status of how the project stands today, and what the future holds for it.
