Matthew Weier O'Phinney:
On PHP-FIG
February 28, 2013 @ 10:45:20

Matthew Weier O'Phinney has a new post to his site today covering the reasons he left the PHP-FIG, the PHP Framework Interoperability Group that was designed to help unify the framework (and PHP) communities with common goals and structure. He talks some about his reasons for leaving and what he hopes the group will, eventually, become.

I had high hopes for the group. It was the culmination of something I've been ruminating on for almost a decade (see post number 12 on my blog, dated to January 2004, for proof). My thoughts have mainly been around coding standards and best practices, helping educate developers around their benefits, and how to leverage both in order to create maintainable code.

He talks about some of the things he sees as shortfalls of the group including the definition of some of the standards (and interface structure), the current thoughts of changing of said standards and some of the "discussion" that happens in the group via the mailing lists and pull requests. He mentions that there were several times that the same discussions would happen all over again, despite people saying it had, and is tired of it.

I have better things to do with my time, things I want to create, software I want to support, hobbies and interests I want to pursue. Debating brace placement, tabs vs spaces (for the umpteenth time), or whether or not annotations have a place in programming in a dynamic language? Not so much.
