A visit to the excellent PHP East Midlands user group in Leicester for the first outing of this PHP 7 talk. It's aimed at the userland developer/user rather than the core contributor, talking about how the new features will affect our development practices and what to expect when upgrading (spoiler: upgrade is entirely achievable for most PHP apps).
This was the inaugural PHP South Coast conference and I hope it was the first of many, it was extremely well done with a great crowd and great lineup. The even let me speak and I had the last slot of the day on the main stage with my "choose your own adventure" style git talk. It was all demo (I can only imagine that a barely-working spacebar made that even more slick) so I'm afraid there are no slides, but there are rumours of a video so I will add that here when it is published.
I was on the Make Better Software Podcast with the people from FogCreek, which was fun. The interview is available as video, audio, or transcript: http://blog.fogcreek.com/n-ways-to-be-a-better-developer-interview-with-lorna-mitchell/
Slides (minimal ones, sorry) from my keynote at the Dynamic Languages Conference
Writing for netmag is always fun, and this time was no exception. I often work with teams of various disciplines to identify and implement the right branching strategy for them so it was good to generalise some of those ideas and share. Also: netmag is gorgeous and it's so much fun to be in physical print! I even showed my parents :)
This was edition 267, June 2015.
I had the pleasure of being a guest on this PHP podcast, specifically to talk about PHP 7
