The Free the Geek podcast, with host Matthew Setter, has posted their latest episode featuring another interview with a member of the PHP community - Episode #15: Talking Sunshine PHP, Project Estimates, and Conferences with Adam Culp.
In this episode I chat with Adam Culp, founder of the Sunshine PHP, in sunny south Florida, about starting and running conferences, project estimates, and being professional developers.
In our fireside chat we start off by having a lively discussion about how Sunshine PHP got started. Adam shares what inspired him to kick off a conference in sunny Florida, as well as how you can do it too. He provides a number of tips, suggestions, and insights as to what it takes.
We then chat, at length, about one of his personal bugbears, thumb-suck time estimates for software projects. This is some seriously quality advice for any developer, regardless of where you are in your career. If you're not good at estimates, or have been burned by working with people who aren't, you won't want to miss this.
