The first regular episode of this podcast with not one but two guests. Jeroen de Jong and Jelrik van Hal have both gone through the process of switching careers, and that's one of the things we talk about. We also discuss the Dutch Black Pete tradition, talk about improving ourselves and picking up whatever work that needs to be done.
Some of the things discussed: The Braintoss app and The Obstacle Is The Way book.
Dutch PHP Conference is the PHP conference for The Netherlands. In the uncon track, a bunch of the DPC speakers and attendees sat down for a nice conversation. Uncon co-host Ross Tuck then decided to mix things up a bit by switching those were sitting at a microphone, for added fun (and valuable information).
How do you handle money? Taxes? Or legacy code? I sat down with Juliette Reinders Folmer to talk and have a good dinner. The result of that is a 2,5 hour conversation about in which we talk about those subjects, but also about regular expressions, WordPress, standards and much, much more.
I travelled to Diemen where I was welcomed by Rafael, his wife Tiscilla and their dog Bella. After the warm welcome Rafael and I sat down for a nice conversation about user groups, living in different countries, community, speaking, the accident of his wife and more.
The attic (or as he calls it, his mancave) of Michiel's house in a small village near The Hague was where we sat down to have a nice conversation on anarchy, creating a better world, developing PHP, being a musician in a band that became popular in an incredibly short period of time and being completely addicted to Warframe.
Please note: This episode contains some explicit language.
Listen to some of Michiel's recent music on Bandcamp.
