Fresh off our holiday break, we’re back with our longest show yet. We talk about Chris' new book The Grumpy Programmer’s Guide To Building Testable PHP Applications, including his experiences self-publishing with Leanpub. Chris also explains how he fears no precipitation on his excursions to the Codemash conference in Ohio. Then Ed talks about the thought process that lead to his latest shit-stirring blog post “The MicroPHP Manifesto.” Ed may or may not begin crying openly. Finally, we discuss when it might be necessary to trash your existing application and rewrite it.
