I’m a Guest Blogger
If you know me personally, follow me on twitter, read my blog or attend conferences I’m at, you know that I am never at a loss for an opinion. A couple of weeks ago, “Don” Marco Tabini pinged me on IM and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. He asked me if I wanted to be a guest blogger for phparch.com. I’m not sure he knew what he was getting into because I wrote one a day for 5 days. Obviously though, he liked at least some of what I had to say because he has posted three of them already.
- Opinion:Arrogance is Limiting Framework Adoption
- Opinion: The Secret to Getting the Most out of Any Conference is in the Hallway
- Opinion: The Real Profit of Moonlighting
By the way, Marco has opened up the phparch.com home page to anyone with PHP related news or views. You first need to register an account there if you don’t have one already and then read the Editorial Guidelines to see what is appropriate.
In general, we publish well-researched, topical news articles and opinion pieces that we will be of interest to our readers—namely, professional PHP developers.
We do not publish news releases, marketing pieces or advertorials—all those will be rejected (the words “sent to /dev/null” come to mind). In addition, we reserve the right to reject any piece which, in our sole judgment, is not fit for publication.
Finally, once you understand what you can post and what has a chance of getting released, click on Submit News to submit your news or opinion.
Meanwhile, over at Ibuildings
Additionally, as part of my day job, I get to write things for the Ibuildings blog. (Seriously, they PAY me to write, I can’t believe it either. I’m not sure how I get these great jobs but I’m thankful I do) Recently I wrapped up a project there that helped define how we estimate projects. The end result was a very large document that unfortunately, I can’t share externally but they did allow me to ruminate on some of the things I learned while interviewing people and doing the research. That blog post was published as well.
“Best Practices in Estimating”
So in case you were wondering why I’ve not been blogging lately, I have, just not here. I’m scattered around the web right now. Make sure you drop by when you see me posting something and say hi. :)
Until next time,
