Giving Thanks

In the United States, we take the fourth Thursday in November to give thanks for all the things we appreciate, and all the people who matter. I know that without PHP, my life wouldn’t be nearly the same; the language I use every day plays a critical role in everything else I do: it provides money to pay bills, a sense of accomplishment, and the joy of working in a language that is truly fantastic.

We owe lots and lots of people for the PHP language, people who are not often thanked nearly enough. Thus, I have decided to pick five people that have contributed significantly in the last year, and (in no particular order), discuss their accomplishments and thank them each personally. I realize that PHP is an effort of several hundred individuals, and that each one deserves credit; there simply wouldn’t be the space to thank them here personally, but each contributor should know that I personally appreciate each and every one of you.

#followfriday – Those That Influence Me Most

Oh, and they’re all on Twitter in case you want to go participate in #followfriday and add them to your list.

The five I picked have been influential in my development as a programmer, and I owe each of them a debt of gratitude. I wanted to highlight them, as they’re A-list members of the PHP community and people everyone should know. So, in no particular order…
