Building off this tweet, who are people/projects you would like to see on this? I have a few in mind but I know they are PHP centric and I don't think this will be limited to one language. Send suggestions my way!
RT this please :) https://twitter.com/matthewtrask/status/1152936503334592512
A bunch of reasons you should never hire someone touting themselves as a "10x Engineer". This also applied to self ascribed "Rock Stars", "Ninjas", and "Cowboys".
Founders if you ever come across this rare breed of engineers, grab them. If you have a 10x engineer as part of your first few engineers, you increase the odds of your startup success significantly.
OK, here is a tough question.
@stevegrunwell Meh, I forget how to get PHP debugging working all the time. A quick search and I am back in business. Rock stars know how to use search tools ;)
And this was the moment that @firstname.lastname@example.org realized why everyone wanted to move to cards instead of cash and checks. It's easier to separate us from our money when it's electronic and just a number in the computer.
Capitalism rears it's ugly head once more!
@dragonmantank ya, the day wh@email@example.com about making the act of paying for something faster/easier will never come. If anything, payin…
Really happy with my Education Station article this month.
The July Issue is out! Elasticsearch, location searches, devilbox VM, defensive coding, OOP abstraction, Amazon Linux, and more.
That Podcast (@firstname.lastname@example.org) Episode 60 dropped yesterday! @email@example.com and I talked to Oliver Davies (@firstname.lastname@example.org) about a whole boatload of topics including #Drupal, #Twig, #Sculpin, #Symfony, and Game of Thrones. Fun times!
I made a drawing for days like this. https://dribbble.com/shots/6052899-It-s-funny-because-it-s-true #evergreen
And here's the 2k followers tweet I promised.
I warned you all.
Pretty sure that magicians and wizards of ye olden times were just winging it as much as we as programmers do now.
"I want you to make the crops grow large."
"Uhm... sure." *waves hands around*
"Why is this still all beans?"
"I wanted big crops. And a gold ring."
After 8 years it's time to leave the travel life behind. I'm looking for a lower-travel role in DevRel leadership, Senior DevRel or Engineering (PHP/Golang/etc.)
I'm a polyglot/educator that loves to work on Dev Tools & educating folks on cool tech. Remote/~Seattle. DMs open :)
Welcome to the PHP Community on Mastodon! We're a friendly little Mastodon instance providing a place for PHP developers to discuss topics related to PHP, as well as topics unrelated to PHP. First and foremost, we're about building community, and that doesn't always involve technical discussion, so feel free to go off-topic and have fun.
Before you get started, make sure you check out our code of conduct.
Thank you to Jakob Westhoff for allowing the use of the photograph "elePHPants walking through the light."
