Gave this talk at the Berlin PHP usergroup on June 4th, 2013 Follow me on Twitter: @CodeStars
These days, it often feels like php is an old, creepy piece of code - it seems that all the cool code kids are using ruby, node or scala.
But is this actually the truth? Maybe php is just different. I believe we as a community are on the right way to take our tools, frameworks, and the community itself to a new level. Composer, Packagist, PHPspec, and PSR are just a first step in the right direction. Each of us can do their part - you could, and you should also be a part of it. So lets unite into an awesome, open-minded community, leaving the php 3 times behind us!
