Hello PHP FIG!

I'm Josh Watzman and I work on the PHP Language and Tools team at Facebook. Over the last several months, a group of us have been working on some tooling and extensions to the PHP language that have been very successful at increasing developer productivity and catching bugs in Facebook's PHP web stack. I'm working on getting those tools open sourced, and while we're not quite ready to release yet, we are very interested in getting some early feedback on them -- most especially from folks such as FIG members and others on this list who are interested in writing high-quality, well-structured PHP code. (Your goal is interoperability of course, but the means are largely the same.)

If you think this is something your project might possibly be interested in, in the short or long term, I'd be elated to talk to you. We're trying to get a wider perspective on the general utility of these tools, how they interoperate with the Zend and HHVM runtimes, and what it would take and look like for a project to start adopting them. Of course, the best way to be sure what those things mean for the wider PHP community is to engage the wider PHP community :)

Please shoot me an email if you're interested and we can discuss further. Thanks!
Josh Watzman

I can't speak for all of Drupal, but I'm definitely interested myself.
Are you talking about engine-level tools like XDebug, XHProf, and the
like, or user-space tools, or syntax changes, or...?

Josh -

Please add me to your reviewer list. I am author of Molajo and am interested in what FB has to share with the broader PHP community.

Thanks for all the interest! It's probably best to email me directly instead of replying to the list -- I've been following up with everyone individually in order to keep the chatter which might not be of general FIG interest off-list (and to also get initial gut reactions from everyone without having seen anything else first). Please do keep responding, I'm interested to hear from as many people as possible!

Sorry for not including this in my original message.

Thanks!
Josh Watzman

Joomla is also interested in what Facebook has for the broader community.

I would email you directly, but sadly cannot, because you didn't leave your email and Google isn't giving me the option to reply to you directly.
