Today’s special guest is Davey Shafik. Davey is a regular on PHP Abstract and I’ve receited his bio enough so that those of you who listen regularly can probably recite along with me. Davey is a full time developer with 10 years experience in PHP and related technologies. He is an author of both magazine articles as well as books and regularly speaks at PHP conferences. His latest book was just released, “The PHP Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks, 2nd Edition” which he co wrote with another PHP Abstract host, Matthew Weier O’Phinney. They had a lot of help from other PHP Lumminaries including Ligaya Turmelle of A link to this brand new book can be found in the show notes.

Today Davey is going to talk to us today about Web Services.
