I just presented at DrupalCamp Asheville on Making the Most of Modern PHP in Drupal Today. With Drupal 7 having such a long shelf life, the Drupal community is largely using the PHP (language and tools) of 2010. We have a lot to learn to be ready for Drupal 8, but fortunately there's a lot we can do now to prepare!

On the blog: publish content on a Drupal site on the weekends with nary a line of code (using a custom content type and Rules Scheduler). Includes a Features module to give it a whirl!
A friend of mine is a DUI lawyer who uses a Drupal site for content marketing and lead generation, managed by my friends at EverConvert. They quickly identified the weekend as the best time for the website to directly appeal to visitors who found the site after a Friday or Saturday night arrest.

And now for something completely different... I got my hands dirty with Slim Framework 3.x after hearing its creator present at our local PHP meet-up. He also happens to be the author of Modern PHP (published by O'Reilly) and PHP the Right Way. I look forward to playing with it more!

Killer deal today on IndieGameStand: Cubetractor and Dustforce, pay what you want. (Just do it...)
Cubetractor is a neo-retroesque action-strategy-puzzle hybrid where you defeat enemies through an unconventional cube-pulling, turret-building mechanic. The game carries elements of a reverse tower defence and a grounded bullet-hell dodger to deliver a unique gameplay experience presented in a classic top-down perspective. You play as Endroi, a menacingly happy-go-lucky quadrubot as he strives to master the art of Cubetracting -- the art of...

Thus far, it's been a labor of love, but I finally released my first standalone PHP library, NegotiationMiddleware. It provides framework agnostic content negotiation middleware based on willdurand/negotiation. This is possible thanks to PSR-7's server request and response interfaces. More details and links in the Readme.
Content negotiation middleware for PHP applications using a request, response, and next callable signature.

Lose yourself in the #PHP  Renaissance with Slim 3.x: named routes, pattern arguments, and adolescent dependency injection:

Great video, but I'm not gonna lie. I expected the service worker to be a human competing against the browser to render HTML. There a Mechanical Turk API for that yet?

I listened to the "Ramble" expecting you to break into "Ramble On", but I obviously misinterpreted the title. Fixed that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3HemKGDavw ; )

Also, actual lyrics from the song:

"T'was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair
But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her, her, her, yeah"

Finally got around to writing up my rationale for not combining shopping carts when users login on Drupal Commerce sites. I wrote Ubercart to do this by default, but in Commerce I just retain multiple shopping carts. We still don't have the perfect implementation, but at least there are no more accidental purchases when logging in during checkout. : )

+Ryan Szrama​ if the customer is logged in, products visited could be tracked and shown as recommended or viewed products. Anonymous might be a bit more complicated though.

Awesome to hear you are thinking about these types of things for 2.x. I know that is a long way off but it's stuff like this that will make Commerce a competitive and attractive ecommerce solution for those who've outgrown the prepackaged solutions.

Help make it happen for Ananias, a cross-platform / mobile dungeon crawler by veteran roguelike developer Santiago "Slash" Zapata. I've been playing his games for years. : )

Story
Introduction
By day I'm a Drupal e-commerce developer at Commerce Guys. I work full time on Drupal Commerce, developing both the code and the community of contributors to the project as a whole. By night I'm also a Drupal e-commerce developer, much to my wife's chagrin.

I'm married to Christina Szrama and have a Drupal toddler named Éowyn (no, she's not the elf played by Liv Tyler). Most of the things we love are in walking distance: our home, our neighbors, our park, and our church. Other things we love are much further away (namely grandparents, siblings, cousins, and Paris).

I have four garden gnomes.

My company has worked with Acro Media on multiple projects and have seen their team in action in a variety of contexts. From the top to bottom, they're a very professional team with deep insight into eCommerce sites, user experience, and scalability. I highly recommend them and look forward for further opportunities to collaborate in the future.

I injured my back in a warehouse job and found just how hard it can be to get your claims reimbursed without good support. If you find yourself in a similar situation, I highly recommend talking to this immediately if you have any issues getting your injuries covered.

John is very professional and has built a team that's very concerned with helping folks, whatever their situation. Highly recommended if you need help from a lawyer who knows his stuff and gets results.

Everyone I know who's worked with Robert finds him to be courteous and professional, a strong advocate on behalf of disabled veterans and others who aren't equipped to defend themselves. I'm happy to recommend him for anyone needing an advocate here in the Upstate to get the treatment and compensation they deserve.

Having been injured in a warehouse job before, I understand the value of working for employers who take compensation seriously - and of having legal representation when they don't. If you have any issues like I did, I'd recommend calling this firm immediately to make sure you don't end up on the hook for your own care!

You learn a lot about a person when doing work for them. Robert is one of the most upstanding individuals I've worked with and very knowledgeable in his field. I'm happy to recommend him.

I've known John for a while and found him to be both available and eminently knowledgable. He works harder than anyone I know on behalf of his clients, and he's the first attorney I'd ever met to place more importance on helping others than making a quick buck. Highly recommended.
