Great stuff is happening today! I would dare to say that to date, december 1 2009 is probably the most active and important day in the history of the symfony project! Three(!) new versions have been released, amongst which the first of the last branch of symfony 1, and a new book is available in the form of an online advent calendar and a print book.

While at the PHP UK Conference, O'Reilly had a stand. A new series of books caught my attention because they were not the standard "animal on white cover" book I had come to expect from O'Reilly. After looking at those books, I made my pick and went for Neal Ford's The Productive Programmer. A wise choice, as it soon turned out.

No, I still have not written a book (though there are actually plans for that ) but my name can again be seen in print. After my first official print mention as technical reviewer of Packt's phpBB book, I am now happy to announce I am named and even quoted in Michael Kimsal's new PHP Job Hunter's Handbook.

When I recently did a presentation at pfCongrez , as a thank you I got the book Getting Real by the people of 37Signals. I had until then not heard of the book yet, but it's an excellent view on software development.
