    I’m sorry I’m going to sound like a troll but you guys really failed on the CodeIgniter question. On that same not, there have not been to many backend devs as guests. You should get Phil Sturgeon or Jeffery Way to talk about php/CodeIgniter/Laravel.

      We’ll try and be better about getting too deep into territory we don’t know, but, ya’know:

      > Shoptalk is a podcast about front end web design

        I understand, sorry for sounding so harsh. Love the show.

      Just to chime in and hopefully clarify some points. Ellis Labs the creators of CodeIgniter publicly stated they would no longer develop CodeIgniter and handed it off the community. This is after a prolonged and slow decline in development of CodeIgniter. During this time many PHP devs have move to other more modern PHP frameworks such as Laravel, Symphony etc…

      I realize your podcast is about front end dev, but I hope this might help give more context to the reaction. As always love the program and I look forward to it each week.


      Btw here’s the source about code igniter:

  • Guest

    I’m so curious to know why the tendency to write “ignitor” instead of “igniter” 🙂
    I’ve seen this with many people

  • Good show guys, keep up the good work. I can recommend Laravel as an amazing MVC PHP framework, I had the pleasure to play with it, and I use it in my work projects.
