Acquia Blog:
PHP Reset, PHP Renaissance Unify everything in PHP with Composer
April 30, 2015 @ 08:19:15

On the Acquia blog there's a new post today with another of Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire's interviews with a member of the PHP community. In this latest interview he talks with Jordi Boggiano, a lead developer on the Composer project that's changed the way people use and install PHP packages.

It was great to get the chance to sit down and talk with Jordi Boggiano at SymfonyCon Madrid 2014. Jordi is responsible for Composer, one of the most important pieces of technology that is driving PHP interoperability and the PHP "renaissance" of the last couple of years. He's also on the Symfony2 core team.

Jeffrey gives a brief overview of some of the main points that Jordi makes in his interview including the suggestion of "using what you know" and thinking of the people/users of the tool, not just the technology of it. He also mentions Jordi's response to the "PHP Renaissance" (and note that he sees it as more of a PHP Reset instead). You can watch the full interview video either through the embedded player or on YouTube, You can also use the in-page audio player or download the mp3 if you'd like an audio-only version.

PHP Town Hall Podcast:
Episode 40 Return of the Ferrara
April 23, 2015 @ 09:02:26

The PHP Town Hall podcast has posted a new episode today with the Return of the Ferrara. Hosts Ben Edmunds and Phil Sturgeon are joined once again by guest Anthony Ferrara to talk about, among other things, scalar type hints.

Regular guest Anthony Ferrara joins us "in the studio" to talk about the new version of his scalar type hints, which since recording - a f**king month ago - has been accepted for PHP 7. We thought it would be good to have a bit of a chat about the feature, the nonsense that surrounded it and a bunch of other random internals and PHP 7 related blathering.

Laravel News:
Announcing Lumen
April 15, 2015 @ 10:23:12

The creators of the Laravel framework (Taylor Otwell and crew) have just released a new micro-framework based on some of the ideals and components that power the full version of Laravel - Lumen. In this post to the Laravel News site they talk some about the framework and what it has to offer.

Lumen is a brand new PHP framework from Taylor Otwell designed for building lightning fast micro-services and API's. When speed is a necessity, Lumen should be your first choice.

One of the neat things about the framework is you can still use all the Laravel features you love like Eloquent, caching, queues, validation, routing, middleware, and the powerful Laravel service container. Plus if you start your project with Lumen and eventually need even more power, moving to the full featured Laravel is a simple process.

They interviewed Taylor about the framework answering:

  • What made you decide to create Lumen?
  • Where did the name Lumen come from?
  • Being able to upgrade right into Laravel is huge. Was this the plan from the beginning?
  • How were you able to get the framework so fast, while still keeping so many great features?

Check out the full post for the answers and more details about the framework itself.
