On the 7php.com site today they've picked back up with their "PHP community interviews" series with this latest interview - a few answers from Taylor Otwell, the creator of the Laravel framework.

In this edition I talked with Taylor Otwell {@taylorotwell}, the man behind Laravel (created in April of 2011) which is a PHP 5.3+ Framework. Taylor is a .NET developer who specializes in elegant, intuitive software. The fact that he comes from a .NET background and he produces such an excellent, solid PHP framework with good standards, is something very inspiring and amazing. His framework, Laravel is very unique in itself and has an awesome community behind; Laravel is getting a lot of momentum and is on its way to being one (or is already?) of the most awesome PHP 5.3 framework.

Some of Taylor's answers cover things like:

  • His advice to budding PHP developers
  • His admiration for Fabien Potencier
  • His work in .NET as a "day job"
  • Details about the Laravel framework (and trials along the road to its development)
