About Cal Evans

Many moons ago, at the tender age of 14, Cal touched his first computer. (We're using the term "computer" loosely here, it was a TRS-80 Model 1) Since then his life has never been the same. He graduated from TRS-80s to Commodores and eventually to IBM PC's. For the past 10 years Cal has worked with PHP and MySQL on Linux OSX, and when necessary, Windows. He has built on a variety of projects ranging in size from simple web pages to multi-million dollar web applications. When not banging his head on his monitor, attempting a blood sacrifice to get a particular piece of code working, he enjoys building and managing development teams using his widely imitated but never patented management style of "management by wandering around". Cal is happily married to wife 1.31, the lovely and talented Kathy. Together they have 2 kids who were both bright enough not to pursue a career in IT. Cal blogs at and is the founder and host of Nomad PHP

    Cal, I think the audio here is Eric David’s <a href="">Project Management Methods to Maintain IT standards</a>. Good stuff, just not what I was expecting! Might want to update title & attribution.

    Thanks for such a quick response! I just listened to that part a few times to piece together what he was saying.

    Keep up with the podcasts and these sessions! I’m really learning a lot and soaking it all up. I actually just listened to all the PHP Abstract episodes and blogged about it since I loved them so much.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Yes, I apologize for the problem, it’s in the master file. I will make sure and sufficiently abuse our audio engineer. :)

    I’m noticing some problems in the recording between about 10:25 to 12:42. I tried re-loading the episode and playing it again, but it still had the same issues. I’m not sure if this is something that can be fixed or if it is actually part of the recording itself. It’s just hard to understand what he’s saying between those times.

    Is there also a transcript for this or any other session?
