This talk was given in very different ways on two consecutive weekends: first at DrupalCamp Scotland in Edinburgh, and then at phpDay in Verona. Two different crowds, different events, but the same message. Upgrade, FFS :)
A short talk at APIStrat in Amsterdam about the joind.in API.

A remake of previous editions of this talk, I was privileged to have the opportunity to give it this time on the main stage at PHPUK. Great event, great atmosphere, great people :)
A hands-on tutorial for netmag, this was a fun project to build a dashboard giving insights to a project by using Guzzle to pull data from GitHub's API and display it. It's a walk through of how to create something like this using guzzle, starting with HTML5 Boilerplate to give a nice, clean look, then putting the flash on those bones with data from github.
It's in Issue 251, March 2014 - you can get back issues here: http://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/design/net-magazine-back-issues/net-march-14-issue-251/
Basically: "would everyone please upgrade to a currently-supported version of PHP". This talk covers the new features and performance improvements in PHP 5.3, PHP 5.4 and PHP 5.5, and gives some approachable advice on how to handle upgrading between them. This talk was delivered to my local user group and they asked some good questions!
