If you would like to help out an open-source project but don’t know where to start, check out the Fourth Symfony Docs Hack Day on Saturday, May 21 from 2:00 AM CDT to 2:00 PM CDT (Note: you do not need to be active in this for the entire 12 hours).
If you’ve never contributed to open source before, this is a great way to start! Check out the introduction mini-workshop, hang out on #symfony-docs (on FreeNode on IRC) before and during the event, and do what you can to contribute. This is a low-pressure event and all involved want to help you contribute in the best way that you can.
In a recent blog post, KC PUG member Bryan Geraghty examines why he chooses PHP to develop applications. Bryan’s examination takes his security-focused perspective into account, and explores some ideas not commonly seen elsewhere.
Bryan is preparing a series of PHP Security focused talks for KC PUG, so certainly check it out.
In our February meeting, one of our newest members mentioned he had begun using Sublime Text for PHP development on his Mac. I hadn’t seen it in action before, and almost asked for a demo.
In a stroke of coincidence, PHP community member Stuart Herbert pulled together 14 of his videos showing the various ways he has configured ST2 for PHP Development and it seems people have been tweeting about it today. I couldn’t help but pass it along for all of you…I might have to try it out myself. Windows, Mac and Linux are supported.
His videos were recorded on a Mac, but I’d love to hear your Linux or Windows experiences too.
