![New Beta: Transcriptions and Closed Captioning](https://images.ctfassets.net/vzl5fkwyme3u/3Cz2r74iChZbJyAFS2ydPo/f67d7369647247806bbacb8f48c9fd98/captions.png)

With the mission of making technology more accessible, I'm pleased to announce a beta of transcriptions and closed captioning on select videos.

This beta offers a more in-depth look into videos before watching them, the ability to dig into the video's text afterwards for review, and the ability to watch the video with closed captioning assistance.

Closed Captioning may be enabled on the video player by clicking the [cc] icon and selecting your preferred language (at this time, only English is supported). You may also find a transcription of the talk below the description for more insight into the talk before watching, or to find specific information/ sections afterwards for review.

![Why Cloudways is the Perfect Managed Hosting for PHP Applications](https://images.ctfassets.net/vzl5fkwyme3u/3VLCUBagZPfSLyxyt1AvvP/89e3b904a450454545eb885e2e0e76b4/cloudways.jpg?w=1000)

#### The following is a sponsored blogpost by [Cloudways](https://www.cloudways.com/en/?id=431739)

Developing an application is not the sole thing you should bank on. You must strive to find the best hosting solution to deploy that application also. The application’s speed is dependent on the hosting provider, that is why I always advise you to go for the best hosting solution to get the ultimate app performance.

Now a days, it is a big challenge to choose any web hosting, as each hosting has its own pros and cons which you must know, before considering it finally for the deployment. I don’t recommend shared hosting for PHP/Laravel based applications, because you always get lot of server hassles like downtime, hacking, 500 errors, lousy support and other ...

![Midwest PHP and Nomad PHP Join Forces!](https://tessakriesel.com/wp-content/uploads/midwest-php.png)

### [Interested in sponsoring? Check out the prospectus](https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZYDi9dKCI47caU9vr69dvdhH0Enm2XcM/view)

### A little history

Several years ago I had the distinct privilege of founding Midwest PHP with Jonathan Sundquist. The goal was simple, to bring an affordable PHP conference to Minnesota and the midwest region.

Midwest PHP was created for one simple reason - there weren't a lot of alternatives, especially affordable ones. At the time, your choices were ZendCon in Silicon Valley, php[tek] in Chicago, or Northeast PHP in Boston. While Northeast PHP formed the blueprint of a community conference - it still required a flight and a costly hotel in Boston. I wanted something where local attendees, college students, and those just beginning in their PHP careers could go to learn, network, and become pa...

![Introduction to Gitlab CI for PHP developers](https://images.ctfassets.net/vzl5fkwyme3u/5EUoVwcn2inEG3LsNJFAYp/14e5c704d91665c0de6ffd506a283ec3/AdobeStock_90389954.png?w=1000)

As a developer, you've probably at least heard something about [CI - Continuous integration](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continuous_integration). And if you haven't - you better fix it ASAP, because that's something awesome to have on your skill list and can get extremely helpful in your everyday work. This post will focus on CI for PHP devs, and specifically, on CI implementation from [Gitlab](https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/ci/README.html). I will suppose you know the basics of [Git](https://git-scm.com/), [PHP](https://php.net/), [PHPUnit](https://phpunit.de/), [Docker](https://www.docker.com/) and unix shell. Intended audience - intermediate PHP devs.

Adding something to your workflow must serve a purpose. In this case the goal is to automate routine tasks and achieve better quality control. Eve...

![When PHP Frameworks Suck](https://images.ctfassets.net/vzl5fkwyme3u/2H05p7yk8iyAjFi9j3ui8d/6f8037faa2a3c5b5f6abf66549b2dc80/frameworks_suck.png?w=1000)

### INTRO

If you are working as a PHP software developer, there is an extremely high chance that all of your application, you’re currently working on, using frameworks of any kind.

PHP community developers of all levels worship frameworks since there are big historical and practical reasons for that.

### Historical reasons

Since early PHP versions, developers were disreputable because not everybody considered PHP as a programming language, similar to JavaScript a couple of years ago. While strong type language existed decades ago, PHP continues to be soft type since now, only in version 7 basic types were introduced. There is also a matter of the fact that you can script in PHP without using a single object.

But that opened a space for frameworks to step in and introduce t...
