Web Frontend, API Backend


ZendCon 2014, October 2014

ZendCon's main stage was my setting for this talk, and it was quite an experience! This talk is really a case study, showing how to build a simple API and wire it up to a basic website, and it's fun to give. The crowd were great although the big stage was rather daunting!

Advanced Git Tutorial


ZendCon 2014, October 2014

This was one of the opening day tutorials at ZendCon this year, and I was honoured to be delivering this session there. I like to teach git and this crowd were at a variety of levels, they were interactive, and they asked great questions. And yes, I had a ball :)

Web Frontend, API Backend


PHP North West, October 2014

This talk is really a case study of how and why you might build a website or other application out of two pieces: a frontend and a backend. This conference publishes video so that will appear in due course, but for now here's the feedback link and the slide deck:

Advanced Git Tutorial


PHP North West, October 2014

This was a great session, split into two parts. The first half was a rather speedy tour through all the various skills that any git apprentice must study and master: good, curated commits, branching, merging, multiple remotes. Part two was "what do you want to know?" - we brainstormed a list of topics and the attendees voted on what they most wanted to see.
