On the SitePoint PHP blog Matthew Setter has posted the latest in the "Can Great Apps Be Written in PHP?" interview series. This time he talks with two other developers - Gary Hockin and Bruno Skvorc, the blog's own editor.

Matthew asks Gary questions about his history with PHP and some of his own "highlights" when it comes to features of the language. They also talk about other languages, frameworks and is how preferred toolset.

In talking with Bruno, he asks similar questions but Bruno's answers deal more with the community around PHP than specific features. They also talk some about deployment testing and his own preferences on how his team works.
