I’ve spent a lot of recent weeks moaning about the FIG (again), and I feel that it’s only fair to all involved that I solidify my thoughts about exactly what I feel is wrong with the current direction, and what needs to be done to fix things.
Disclaimer: This is all personal opinion and as such, should be taken as my view of the world, and not fact.
If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll have noticed me banging on a lot about conferences and codes of conduct lately. You’ll probably be a bit bored about my constant posturing by now, and I know I’ve lost followers because of it, so I’d like to brain dump what I think of codes of conduct, and why, in my opinion, they are so important.
I’ve just started listening to PHP Town Hall episode 25. Firstly, let me just make a point that I’ve only listened to the first 20 minutes or so, but I feel like I should make some points about why we, at Roave, decided to put our money where our mouth is and support PHPWomen financially.
(or how I stopped blindly including shit in my composer.json)
I have absolutely no doubt this post will be largely disagreed upon by many in the PHP community, but I’ve had a terrible day and I’m hoping that the process of just getting this off my chest will be therapeutic in some way.
