For the first time in 12+ months I made a code contribution to open source and it feels awesome! I’m delighted to say homebrew now includes PHP 7.1 (less than 48 hours after release).
A lot of hard work goes into FOSS and the communities around it; and most of my time has been community centric and not code. In part its because I’m busy on the community side and partly a sense of cautious sense of ‘someone else would be better at making that contribution’.
Last night I had one of my random project ideas: lets survey PHP user groups across the world and see if there’s any pattern of having a Code of Conduct (and if so, which one).
Whilst not a definitive list, http://php.ug is a great starting place with 242 listed user groups - enough to make a splash I’d say!
Now manually viewing (translating if required) and tracking down a code of conduct for 242 user groups is no mean feat so I put out a tweet asking if anyone had some time to spare.
