PHP Versions Stats - 2016.1 Edition

Last year I posted stats about PHP versions, and the year before as well, both time in November. However this year I can't wait for November as I am curious to explore the PHP7 uptake! A quick note on methodology, because all these stats are imperfect as they just sample some subset of the PHP user base. I look in …

We've discussed Composer best practices before , and I've always advocated using composer global require when installing packages that can be used across several projects - particularly command line tools.

Dear Reader, Last week in the US we celebrated Memorial Day. The day set aside to remember those who gave their lives to defend this country.

Since PSR-7 was accepted, everyone and their friend Sherly has been knocking out middleware implementations, some of them stunning, some of them half-arsed, and some of them rolled into existing frameworks. HTTP Middleware is a wonderful thing, but …

Nitpicking over Code Standards with Nitpick CI

There are many ways to make sure your code respects a given code standard - we've covered several before. But enforcing a standard team-wide and making sure everyone knows about mistakes before they're applied to the project isn't something that's very easy to do.

Moaning About the FIG (Again)

I’ve spent a lot of recent weeks moaning about the FIG (again), and I feel that it’s only fair to all involved that I solidify my thoughts about exactly what I feel is wrong with the current direction, and what needs to be done to fix things.

PHPSrbija Conference 2016 review

This past weekend I was invited to speak at PHP Srbija Conference 2016 which was held in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia in the south-east of Europe.

On PSR-7 middlewares

PSR-7 got released May 4, 2015. There is a discussion about middlewares based on PSR-7 messages, and it is awfully overdue. The most common middlewares in use since June 2015 are callables with this interface: They just work. I’ve been using them since June 2015. You can stack a number of middlewares with tools …

Goddamn it.

It's not often that one messes up really bad. But today is my day apparently. TL;DR: I accidentally wiped a github organization that had a few popular repos on it. But it's all fixed now.
