056: Hourly vs Value-Based Pricing
Nov 10, 2016 @ 10:56:50

The PHP Roundtable podcast, hosted by Sammy Powers, has posted its latest episode. In this new show he's joined by Keith Casey, Tim Lytle and Mike McDerment to talk about hourly versus value based pricing when charging for freelance development work.

There are two seemingly contradicting philosophies about how to charge clients for programming work. The hourly camp suggests that the client is paying for your skill and hiring you for your time. The value-based pricing camp suggests that the programmer should price a project based on its value to the client instead of the hours it will take to build it. Today we chat about these two ideas and discuss the pros and cons of both.

The PHP Roundtable podcast (videocast) has posted their latest episode: Episode #53: Why I'm Afraid to Admin to Using PHP. In this show host Sammy Powers is joined by Evert Pot and Davey Shafik.

So you spend most of your time programming in PHP. You meet another programmer out in the wild. You begin explaining what you do. Do you find yourself using vague terms and actively trying to avoid the word "PHP?" Do you dread the question, "What language do you primarily code in?" Do you anticipate them scoffing at you when you say, "PHP?"

We discuss why PHP has such a bad rep in the eyes of many and why some of us feel the need to start conversations with, "I use PHP but let me explain..."

049: Event Sourcing in PHP
Aug 01, 2016 @ 10:49:11

The PHP Roundtable podcast, hosted by Sammy Powers, has posted their latest episode today featuring guests Beau Simensen, Ross Tuck, Shawn McCool and Willem-Jan Zijderveld talking about event sourcing.

We spend much of our time as developers managing the state in our applications. There are many different approaches and philosophies attributed to reading, mutating and storing state.

The Event Sourcing pattern is an approach to managing application state. If we think of any given state of our app as a frame in a video, Event Sourcing allows us to scrub through past states of the app. Today we discuss what Event Sourcing is and how we can start integrating it into our PHP apps.
