Addendum: Letter from the Future

Fig 1. Some PHP7 logos A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about my efforts to port pthreads to PHP7 , to make it worthy of the shiny new platform. Work continued on pthreads, and today I'm going to take the opportunity to update my previous blog post with some correction and extension. With PHP7 in RC2, I'm sure …

Mailchimp API v3 and Address fields

This usually happens when we're collaborating on a branch with other people, and we've made changes on our local version of a branch, and someone else (or the other you, if you use git to sync between multiple dev platforms…

Creating Courses and Talks with Mind Maps

Many people are intrigued when I say that I am able to cut my course and talk preparation time by roughly 70% using mind maps. The first instinct is to write slides, but that is wrong. Slides are linear. With the ability to make transitions, add pictures and express ideas in full sentences, they are a distraction to …

WeCamp Day 4

In terms of working, day 4 was actually only half a day. But since the last day of WeCamp would also just be half a day, some work had to be done. The team focussed on finishing their MVP and ended up actually finishing this as well! A great accomplishment for a team that, 4 days ago, did not know eachother at all. …
