In case you missed it, yesterday me and the Roave team announced that we are going to be hosting regular, live Google+ Hangout On Air where we discuss the latest progress and developments on Zend Framework 3.
The community response to this announcement has been awesome! Already, in under 24 hours, we have over 70 people RSVP’d for the first broadcast. We are excited to be hosting this series and hope it will provide a fun, easy, and entertaining way to keep up to date with the latest developments in Zend Framework 3 while getting people excited and more engaged in the community.
Manuel Stosic (Sam) has written a great blog post about the various ways you can follow ZF3 development today:
One way to follow the development is to keep track of the discussions for Zend Framework 3 Ideas on Google Moderator. Not only will you be able to keep track and understand coming changes, you can actually do something against it!
Just today I learned about a great project that some of the great minds behind Zend Framework started. Marco <Ocramius> Pivetta, Evan <EvanDotPro> Coury and Ben <DaspriD> Scholzen will be holding a regular series of Live-Videos / Hangouts where the will be talking about the current status of development of ZF3. They will be highlighting some of the core changes and give reasons for why they are doing so.
I want to emphasize an important point that Sam makes in his post: Zend Framework is a community project. You can do far more than just follow the progress: you can get involved, contribute ideas, feedback, comments, and even code. The Zend Framework 3 Ideas Moderator page is public for anyone to vote, comment, and suggest their own ideas. Additionally, you can subscribe to the zf-contributor mailing list, or chat with others in the community on the #zftalk and #zftalk.dev IRC channels on Freenode.
PS: The first hangout of the series will be on Wednesday, November 6th at 15:00 UTC, and will be featuring special guest Matthew Weier O’Phinney, project lead for Zend Framework. You won’t want to miss it! RSVP today at the Google+ event page.
