Mike Pavlak is a Solutions Consultant and IBM i Series expert. In this podcast Mike talks a little bit about where he's come from, the history of PHP on the i and, what I think is most interesting, what it is that PHP developers can learn from the "old-school" RPG developers and vice versa. Remember the quote "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it"? While programmers have a tendency to look forward to the brightness of the future there is a lot that can be learned by looking back at where we came from.  And, surprise, it turns out that there's a lot we can learn from each other.
