Well, if you haven't heard
, STG's own Highway of Life has joined me as permanent co-host of phpBB Weekly
! The addition of Highway (his real name is David Lewis, if you didn't know) to the show will allow us to provide even better content and have better answers for questions on the show. Since my strength is phpBB2 and David's strength is phpBB3, you can see that we'll probably be focusing more on our respective areas of expertise, however having us co-hosting the show means that our show will now consist of more informative discussions, instead of just me saying stuff.
Anyway, we took a few weeks off during July due to the fact that I was away for a few weekends, however we did an interim episode, phpBB Weekly #024
, where David and I had a long discussion about phpBB 3.0.RC3, David's appearance on an SEO and Internet Tips Podcast, and also talking a bit about the WordPress blogging platform and loosely comparing the interfaces and coding practices of the two web applications. I definitely encourage you to check out this excellent episode.
However, beginning this Saturday (July 28th), we'll be coming back with our regular live episodes, and we've got some great stuff planned for the show. Here's a little sneak preview:phpBB Weekly #025 (July 28th):
The results for the SourceForge Community Choice Awards will be coming out this week, and as you remember, phpBB was nominated as a finalist
. We'll find out if phpBB won, and if they did, we'll be celebrating! Douglas will be going over what's new in the MOD Team's first refresh of MODX, dubbed by smithy_dll as MODX1.0.1, and David will be giving a tutorial on how to add/edit modules in phpBB3--although it's advanced, every phpBB3 MOD author and MOD installer is going to want to be familiar with this system. Also, David might
have a big announcement to make on the show...phpBB Weekly #026 (August 4th):
phpBB Support Team Leader Micheal Cottingham (Techie-Micheal
) will be joining us on this episode as a guest host. He and David will have a conversation on phpBB3's security features and phpBB3 programming. In addition, we'll probably be asking Micheal to talk a bit about the phpBB Support Team and other general phpBB questions, plus, he says that he'll probably ask me a question or two to try to stump me (which probably won't be that difficult). And of course, if you call in live or join in on the TalkShoe chat room, Micheal will be hearing your comments and answering your questions. It's sure to be a lively show!
phpBB Weekly is recorded live on TalkShoe
most Saturdays at 12 PM EDT (1600 UTC), and then is published as a podcast shortly thereafter on our website
and on iTunes
. Anyone is invited to call in live or participate in the live chatroom on TalkShoe, and we have instructions on our website
. We really hope you'll join us for the exciting episodes of phpBB Weekly that are coming up!
