Episode #56 The SOLID Podcast
January 29, 2015 @ 12:20:03

In the latest show from the Three Devs & A Maybe podcast hosts Michael Budd, Fraser Hart, Lewis Cains and Edd Mann talk about a wide range of topics with a focus on the SOLID development principles.

This week we have a three developer podcast with discussion on a host of topics. We kick off with how Fraser has enjoyed building his first bonus slot game, written entirely in JavaScript and HTML5. Preprocessors are a huge part of the JavaScript ecosystem at this time, with so many to choose from we discuss a couple of the more popular ones. This leads on to Photoshop discussion, ReactJS, the cool features present in ES6 and how you can use them today with transpilers. Following this we move on to the SOLID principles, the overuse of inheritance, technical debt and the concept of Over-DRY vs. Software Value. This then takes us on to a strange 'rubber duck' example Edd conjured up to help try and explain the Liskov substitution and Interface segregation principles. Finally, we discuss Edd's media server setup and how he has got it to a staged that he is finally happy with it.

Other topics include things like:

Concurrency, Strict type-hinting and PHP 7 with Joe Watkins
January 23, 2015 @ 09:29:02

In the latest Three Devs & A Maybe podcast the hosts Michael Budd, Fraser Hart, Lewis Cains and Edd Mann are joined by Joe Watkins aka krakjoe for an update on all things PHP.

This week we are lucky to be joined by Joe Watkins, for a general catch-up on a host of PHP-related topics. We start the show off talking about his newly created blog and what drew him to start writing. Following this, we touch upon his first proposed talk on 'Parallel PHP' - hoping to resolve some of the confusion around concurrent terminology and patterns. We then mention his experience looking at YouTube Vitess (for MySQL scaling), and the pros and cons of the team deciding to use Go. His work on strict parameter type-hints is then discussed, along with how the idea has changed over time to be a little less strict. We then highlight the awesome work that Nikic has done for the PHP community, along with his most recent article on the improvements made to PHP's hash-table implementation. PHP 7 and the proposed 5.7 release are then touched upon, followed by the speedy Unicode String implementation. Finally, we discuss the common perception of fear around compiling PHP from source, along with the differences between static and shared libraries.

End of Year Review
January 02, 2015 @ 12:18:09

The Three Devs & A Maybe podcast has posted their latest episode (#53, released December 31st) with a year in review and some of their own experiences over the last year.

Following this, we compare our personal experiences with product and agency work - chatting about the different programming design mindsets and work-flows used in each case. This leads on to the well-timed appreciation for the work of Martin Fowler, Uncle Bob and Greg Young - inc. valuable tests, the importance of a name and there not being a single 'silver bullet' to solving a problem. Finally, we wrap up with what we both would like to learn this upcoming year and Edd's experiences building a mega PC for a friend.

Episode #51 Midweek Random Rambles
December 10, 2014 @ 10:53:28

The Three Devs & A Maybe podcast, hosted by Michael Budd, Fraser Hart, Lewis Cains and Edd Mann, has posted their latest episode - Episode #51: Midweek Random Rambles.

In our 51st podcast we temporarily revert to a midweek recording of the show. This essentially means we were all a bit tired and delirious, leading to some fantastic randomness, none more than Lew's 'different' introduction to the show. We will let you be judges of that! Following our usual discussion of how things are panning out in our working week, we then move on to discuss some of the interesting security issues cropping up on Michael's university course. Also, Fraser has landed an exciting new job in London, Lew has found front-end dependency bliss with Bower and Edd is doing some exciting stuff at work too. We also talk about asset file compression/concatenation and issues we've encountered with those too. So... plenty to discuss, in fact too much to cram in to our usual hour so we will continue the theme next time. Enjoy folks, and as ever, thanks for listening and for your feedback.

Other topics mentioned in this episode include the Google no CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA, the Gitminutes podcast and new book covering domain driven design in PHP. You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page audio player or by downloading the mp3. If you enjoy the show, be sure to subscribe to their feed too!
