Matthew Weier O'Phinney: My ZendCon Beautiful Software Talk
Note: This article was originally published at PHPDeveloper on 20 November 2012.
Unusually for me, I did not speak on a Zend Framework topic, and had only one regular slot (I also co-presented a Design Patterns tutorial with my team). That slot, however, became one of my favorite talks I've delivered: "Designing Beautiful Software". I've given this talk a couple times before, but I completely rewrote it for this conference in order to better convey my core message: beautiful software is maintainable and extensible; writing software is a craft.
You can find the slides for his presentation on his site as well.
