Joe Watkins and Sara Goleman join Phil to make one hell of an episode. These two are not only core contributors to PHP, but are behind a lot of RFCs and decisions that make PHP considerably better. We talk about a whole bunch of awesome stuff, including progress of the named parameters RFC - and the chances of it making in, the new accepted PHP 5.6 feature PHPDBG and what it means for you, HHVM and its relationship to “The PHP”, wether PHP should have a spec for implementations of the language, and a whole bunch of other stuff.
Sara knows a thing or two about HHVM because she helped build it.
Joe knows a thing or two about PHPDBG because he helped build it.
So basically… THEY’RE SMARTER THAN YOU ARE SO LISTEN TO THEM DAMMIT!
