Zend Announces Formal Split from PHP
April 01, 2006 @ 06:46:27

Zend has issued a press release today announcing their split from the PHP group in order to pursue their own branch of the popular web development language.

Andi Gutmans, Co-founder and Vice President of Zend, is quoted as saying: It's about time we finally made the move. All of those people whining constantly about 'PHP is broken here - make it better' and 'Why can't you fix my favorite function so it works better?' Frankly, we at Zend are tired of it, and we're not gonna take it anymore.

Neither Zeev Suraski or Marc Andreessen could be reached for comment on this branch, but sources say that the entire company is behind this move. Branching off to create their own "Zend PHP" allows them to integrate their recently released (preview version) of Framework more closely and give it the power it needs to surpass the original PHP distribution.

Professional PHP Blog:
Podcast interview with Andi Gutmans
January 31, 2006 @ 06:45:16

Professional PHP has thie opinions posted today about the latest show from the Pro-PHP Podcast - the interview with Andi Gutmans.

I enjoyed Friday's pro::PHP podcast interview with Andi Gutmans. With a name like pro::PHP how can I not like it? This was a less formal presentation than the Zend Framework webcast. Perhaps surprisingly informal for Andi, at least at the end. I thought Marcus Whitney did a great job selecting and asking questions. There were some technical difficulties in the live version. I hope those are worked out for the next broadcast, which I am looking forward to.

Now, the question is early February, or late February?

If you're confused about that last question, check out this post for the scoop. (According to a comment made by Andi, though, they're shooting for "mid-February")...
