The Product & Support site has posted an interview with Taylor Otwell, the creator of the Laravel framework. In it they talk about what Laravel is, how it treats users as "customers" and the community around it.

Taylor is the creator of Laravel, founder of Laravel Forge and founder of Envoyer . I spoke with him about open source software and making the transition to entrepreneurship.

Taylor also answers questions about the ecosystem around the framework (marketing, documentation, etc) and how its helped the popularity of the framework. He also shares a few things he might have changed if he could start over with Laravel, including features he feels are "overdone". They also talk about Taylor's move from a full-time job into being self-employed and how that works with two large open source projects to maintain. Check out the full interview for the answers to these and other questions.

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.

Starting off with his journey into the world of programming (through .NET), we move on to discuss how Laravel came to being. We then touch upon our experiences experimenting with different programming stacks, and what features of C# he would like to see introduced into PHP. Finally, we ask Taylor what resources he would recommend to someone just starting out in the industry.

NetTuts.com:
A BDD Workflow With Behat and Phpspec
July 04, 2014 @ 14:20:23

NetTuts.com has posted a new tutorial today showing a sample testing BDD workflow using the Behat and PHPSpec testing tools. The BDD (behavior-driven development) approach focuses on using test-driven development and domain-driven design rather than just a unit testing approach.

In this tutorial, we will have a look at two different BDD tools, Behat and phpspec, and see how they can support you in your development process. Learning BDD can be confusing. New methodology, new tools and many questions, such as "what to test?" and "which tools to use?". I hope that this rather simple example will give you ideas to how you can incorporate BDD into your own workflow.

The article isn't a "getting started with BDD" guide, so you'll need to know a bit about the ideas and process before getting into it. He starts with a look at the workflow Taylor Otwell (his inspiration for this) uses and how to install Behat and get to work on a first feature file. He describes the thought process behind the steps and some of the PHP code required to make them work. He then gets to the use of phpspec to mock out a needed "Config" dependency. He works though the rest of the tests and includes the output when all tests are passing.
