New on his blog today Brian Swan has posted an interview with Eli White (no, not that Eli White) a PHP developer and intern on the ASP.NET team there at Microsoft with some of his thoughts on Web Matrix and Razor from the perspective of someone with some PHP knowledge.

I had the good fortune of meeting Eli White, a junior at University of Washington and a PHP developer of 7 years, for the first time at the local Seattle PHP Meet Up a few months ago. [...] I had lunch with Eli last week and we talked about the work he's doing on Web Matrix and Razor. I thought his perspective as a PHP developer on Web Matrix and Razor were worth sharing...

They talk some about Eli's background, including how he got into PHP development, what some of his initial challenges were in getting into the language, and - more on the Microsoft side - how he got involved in the ASP.NET team and the Web Matrix/Razor projects from there.
