EllisLab Seeking New Owner for CodeIgniter
July 19, 2013 @ 12:03:39

According to this recent post the folks over at EllisLab are looking for new "owners" for the CodeIgniter project.

CodeIgniter is one of the world's most popular Open Source PHP frameworks, used by thousands of developers powering hundreds of thousands of sites, in addition to being deployed as the underpinning of every ExpressionEngine installation. Throughout its seven year life thus far, CodeIgniter has consistently received praise for being both speedy and surefooted. Small and lightweight, resistant to feature bloat, retaining compatibility with contemporary technology, the framework earned the reputation of being low-risk and high-gain, which fueled its worldwide adoption. So why are we we looking for a new home for CodeIgniter?

They go on, talking about their reasoning behind moving on from CodeIgniter - mostly it's concerning the resources they have available and the things they, as a company, want to focus on:

CodeIgniter will be best served by someone with a focused vision for it, along with the resources to achieve that vision. It needs someone to skillfully utilize the brand's immense traffic, and direct the thousands of voices of input towards common goals. EllisLab can't provide those things without adopting a fundamentally different business model or taking attention away from our primary flywheel. CodeIgniter deserves to be someone's primary flywheel.

Paul Jones' Blog:
Savant Has A New Owner
August 20, 2008 @ 12:58:14

According to this new post to his blog, Paul Jones has passed on the torch for his Savant templating system over to Brett Bieber, a member of the Savant community.

Due to time constraints, mostly because of my Solar framework project, I haven't been able to pay as much attention to Savant as I think it deserves, so I made the hard decision to put it up for adoption. Lucky for the Savant community, Brett Bieber (aka Salty Beagle) picked up on that call right away.

Savant is a powerful but lightweight object-oriented template system for PHP that does not compile templates into PHP. It uses PHP itself as the engine to keep things simple.

Stefan Mischook's Blog:
Why PHP is the choice language - a business owners perspective
August 10, 2007 @ 14:10:32

A new article over on Stefan Mischook's blog today talks about why PHP should be the language of choice as told from a business mindset.

I have written this article to speak to business owners and other non-nerd types. [...] I concentrate on the business arguments and only touch on the technological issues underlying them when it makes sense to mention the nerd stuff.

He talks about answers to the "business questions" (like "Is the language reliable?"), about how PHP was made for the web not adapted to it and a quick story of his own to back up his points (started a project with Java and moved to PHP for thousands of dollars in savings).
