My PHP Advent article is up; therein I try to describe the parallels between public frameworks and business franchises. However, the PHP Advent site doesn't support comments; if you would like to comment, please do so on this blog post instead. Thanks!
Are you stuck with a legacy PHP application? You should buy my book because it gives you a step-by-step guide to improving you codebase, all while keeping it running the whole time.
