Zend Developer Zone:
Review Day Camp 4 Developers Performant PHP - PSR-7 Video
May 01, 2015 @ 09:21:36

The Zend Developer Zone site has posted a review of a recent Day Camp 4 Developers event, specifically the PSR-7 presentation from Matthew Weier O'Phiney (PSR-7 is the proposed standard for HTTP request/response interfaces).

Having a keen interest in PSR-7 myself, I was delighted to see that Matthew Weier O'Phinney (the Supreme Allied Commander of Zend Framework) was going to be speaking on it himself at the latest Day Camp 4 Developers day. [...] PSR-7 deals with specifying interfaces to define HTTP messages (namely request and response messages), and in this talk Matthew introduces the concepts around HTTP messaging, and the PSR-7 implementation that models them. Matthew is the current editor of the proposed PSR-7 standard so this talk was obviously going to be given straight from the horse's mouth.

The author (Gary Hockin) walks you through the content provided in the video including:

  • an overview of the proposal
  • how other languages solve the same problem
  • how PST-7 will solve these same problems

Overall Gary found the talk well-presented and full of good content, especially for those just learning about PSR-7. You can find out more about Day Camp for developers and future events on their site.

Acquia Blog:
PHP Reset, PHP Renaissance Unify everything in PHP with Composer
April 30, 2015 @ 08:19:15

On the Acquia blog there's a new post today with another of Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire's interviews with a member of the PHP community. In this latest interview he talks with Jordi Boggiano, a lead developer on the Composer project that's changed the way people use and install PHP packages.

It was great to get the chance to sit down and talk with Jordi Boggiano at SymfonyCon Madrid 2014. Jordi is responsible for Composer, one of the most important pieces of technology that is driving PHP interoperability and the PHP "renaissance" of the last couple of years. He's also on the Symfony2 core team.

Jeffrey gives a brief overview of some of the main points that Jordi makes in his interview including the suggestion of "using what you know" and thinking of the people/users of the tool, not just the technology of it. He also mentions Jordi's response to the "PHP Renaissance" (and note that he sees it as more of a PHP Reset instead). You can watch the full interview video either through the embedded player or on YouTube, You can also use the in-page audio player or download the mp3 if you'd like an audio-only version.

New Wave PHP with Lorna Jane Mitchell
February 17, 2015 @ 11:49:40

The Acquia podcast has a new episode from host Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire with guest Lorna Jane Mitchell talking about the "new wave PHP" and recent advancements in the community and language.

Lorna Jane Mitchell is back to show us some great reasons for upgrading your projects to PHP 5.3 or newer. Drupal 8's minimum version requirement is already up there at 5.4.5 (as of 2015.Feb.02), so we're doing well! Lorna and I have a quick chat about her history and experience, open source versus proprietary software development ("Projects and companies that work in that open source technology space make much better use of tools ... and they are wonderful, free, and well-supported tools!") ... specifics of how and why the PHP "Renaissance" is happening, and Drupal 8 as a PHP meta-project before she gets down to her jam's Drupal Camp presentation.

The post includes a video of her Drupal Camp session covering the same topic and the slides as presented. This also includes a video of the interview and a link to both the audio file and an in-page audio player.
