What was said in the podcast

1. Be a Good Community Member Sharing Your Open Source Work in Community Sites

2. Use a Readable Coding Style

Coding style is a topic that leads to neverending discussions. If you disagree with other people's coding style, use your own coding style that makes you more productive.

Keep in mind that you may need to use the coding style that other people in the project already use if you work in projects of other people or other companies. This makes it easier for everybody to read and understand it just by looking at it.

If you do not have a favorite coding style, I suggest that you start learning the coding style defined by the PSR 2 (PHP Standards Recommendation), defined by developers of many projects precisely to agree on a more consensual style readable and follows predictable patterns.

If you prefer some other coding style, that is OK too, as long as you can easily read the code you read, so you can understand it even many years after you wrote it.
