PHP Mentors

Advice from PHP Experts around the world

About the Book

The Idea

Since my Daughter has born, I was far away from writing code and programming. Now that she is growing up and I'm getting my hands dirty again, the need for a mentor appeared. 

While I was searching for someone, I remembered some words said by Tim Ferris in his book Tribe of Mentors:

Why one mentor if I can have a lot of them?

And I completed the thought with: why not bring that to other PHP Developers?

What is PHP Mentors Book?

PHP Mentors Book is a set of questions with topics that can help a lot of developers out there (Not just PHP). 

To answer those questions I contacted about 200 personalities and senior PHP people around the world that came up with the material that you will have access.

All of them answered you?

No, I almost gave up while doing it!

Some guys just answered part of the questions, others gave up in the middle of the project, some stopped answering my emails, and so on. Actually, there are some good stories from this quest for material to the book.

But the quality, the smart words and advice that reached me by the people that answered was, and still is, very inspiring. They have motivated me to continue with the project... That is still a work in progress...

What are the topics of the questions?

  • Work station
  • Team work
  • Code Quality
  • Career
  • What to study?
  • How to learn better?
  • Legacy Code
  • The Future of PHP
  • Code Management
  • Development Environment
  • CMSs and Frameworks
  • Docs
  • Tests
  • Logs
  • What to do Away from IT to become a better professional?
