Quick question for the group, if you were trialing a new piece of software while working for a client, who you had a regular set of hours with every week, would it be OK to ask them to pay for the app?

Just Blogged: My Initial Sphinx-Doc Workflow

While very feature rich and capable, it's not the easiest of tools to work with — but it's manageable. Given that, I went in search of how to make it easier to work with. Here's an initial workflow, based on what I've found.

Just Blogged: Don't Ramp Up - Get Stuck In and Create Magic

https://www.matthewsetter.com/ramping-up/

Do you have something that you feel passionate about, something that you'd love to see realised? If so, how are you using your time? Are you using it effectively? Or are you, in fact, throwing so much of it away on pointless, trivial, tasks, by ramping up every day?

Come learn what ramping up is, and why it's costing you your success.

Hey all, a quick question. How do you stay on top of multiple projects effectively? Do you have a system, a set of tools, someone who nags you to remember things? I'm keen to improve and trying to find out how other people keep themselves organised.

Definitely check out this episode - Chris shares so much gold!
Episode #17 is now LIVE!

In this episode I chat with Chris Cornutt, founder of PHPDeveloper.org, websec.io, and Lone Star PHP about conferences and all things security.

It’s a rousing chat about the state of security within the PHP and wider development community. He also gives me an inside look at what it’s like to run the long-running Lone Star PHP conference in Texas.

Grab your favourite beverage and your comfy chair, and get ready for a rousing fireside chat with Chris and I - http://goo.gl/t0qWBB

Check out the latest episode of Zend Framework Quick Bites, talking about FastRoute, the default routing package for Zend Expressive.
Episode #7 of the podcast IS LIVE!

In this episode, I’m giving a quick overview of Zend Expressive’s default routing package - FastRoute.

FastRoute truly is an excellent, high-performance, and lightweight routing package; one worthy of being the default routing choice in Zend Expressive's standalone installer.

Come get a brief introduction to it — https://www.briefs.fm/zend-framework-bites/7
