Follow up on Zend layoff

There has been a lot written this week about the Zend layoff. It started on Techcrunch with this posting by Erick Schonfeld, and has swirled into a debate as to who is going to acquire Zend. All very interesting to say the least. But, there has been speculation for years about them.

I was able to gather a little bit more on these layoffs. From what I am hearing, the layoff primarily consisted of contractors that were already done with a project that they were working on. I have not been able to confirm any notable PHP developers that work there on a full-time basis as being ones that were laid off.

It will be interesting to see if they get acquired, but I am not sure at this point if these layoffs are that big of news. I could easily be wrong, so we will see.
