PHP 7 and Beyond: The Future of PHP – Anthony Ferrara at PHP World
Nov 25, 2015 @ 11:56:26

On the Zend Developer Zone they've posted about a presentation given by Anthony Ferrara at this year's php[world] conference that just wrapped up in Washington, D.C. In it he talks about the future of PHP, PHP 7 and beyond.

PHPWorld was a great conference. If you didn’t attend, you missed a lot. Several of the keynotes just rocked the house including both Lorna Mitchell and Tessa Mero. The highlight for me however was Anthony Ferrara’s closing keynote, “PHP 7 and Beyond: The Future of PHP”. Anthony is a Core developer but also a vibrant member of the community.

Anthony is a good friend of mine but this is the first time I have ever had the chance to see him deliver a keynote talk. I do hope it won’t be the last. The recording of Anthony’s talk is embedded below the storify. I highly recommend watching it.

He (Cal Evans) includes his set of live tweets from during the presentation as well as an embedded version of the video if you'd like to watch the entire thing. It was also posted to YouTube if you prefer to watch it there.

If you missed it or weren't able to attend this year's php[world] the keynote from Taylor Otwell, creator of the Laravel framework, has been posted: "Laravel - Lessons Learned".

In four years, Laravel has become one of the most popular application development frameworks for PHP. In addition to the framework itself, a vibrant community has emerged including Laracon, Laracasts, Laravel Forge, Envoyer, and more. In this session, we'll discuss the history of the framework, its core philosophies, and what makes its community so passionate.

You can watch it either though the in-page video player or directly over on YouTube. There's also other videos posted from the conference (keynotes) from Tessa Merro (of the Joomla project) and Lorna Mitchell (on open source communities).

php[world] Conference: Five Amazing Keynotes
Aug 21, 2014 @ 10:33:24

The php[architect] group has officially announced the five keynote speakers they'll be having at this year's php[world] conference conference.

We are excited to announce today the amazing keynote speakers that we have lined up for our php[world] conference this November. We’ve worked hard to find the best speakers and talks that cover the breadth of the PHP experience. We want php[world] to be a conference that pulls together all the different fragmented communities of PHP into one place to share ideas, and our keynotes reflect that mission.

The keynote speakers for this year come from a wide range of communities:

  • Luke Stokes: "Turning Your Code Into a Company: The Parts They Don’t Tell You."
  • Angela Byron: "Drupal 8: A Story of Growing Up and Getting Off the Island"
  • Jeffrey A. “jam” McGuire: "Idealism as code: From philosophy to empowerment"
  • Andrew Nacin: "Trust, Community, and Automatic Updates"

The final "keynote" is actually a panel of seven developers representing some of the major projects in the PHP ecosystem: WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Joomla!, Symfony, Laravel, and Zend Framework. You can find out more about these keynotes here or just check out the conference on the main conference site.

Okay, so the cloud. But what's in it for me and my business.
Nov 13, 2013 @ 12:40:06

On the PHPMagazin.de site today, they've posted the video from this year's International PHP Conference of the panel discussion of "the cloud" and what's in it for businesses (note: original page is in German).

Who really needs the cloud? [...] Speaker Rainer Stropek (software architect at gmbh), Frank Muller (Canonical) and Glen Campbell (Rackspace) spoke on a keynote panel in Munich at the 2013 IPC about the cloud and its opportunities for business cases. It was less about basics, how to get the concepts of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS, or propaganda, like the eternal question of the data (un) reliability of the cloud, but much more about a sense of which business scenarios cloud are ready.

You can watch the full keynote video either through the in-page player or over on YouTube as well as several other interviews and videos from this year's IPC (2013).

Nov 04, 2013 @ 10:58:47

Davey Shafik has a new post about doing the closing keynote at this year's ZendCon Europe conference (happening November 18th through 20th in Paris, France).

In a little under three weeks I will be giving the closing keynote at ZendCon Europe. This will my first keynote and I’m excited to be talking about The Evolution of DevOps.

His talk will cover how the DevOps role has come into its own over the past few years and what kinds of changes to expect, as a developer, in the upcoming years. If you'd like to hear this and lots of other great talks, there's still time to pick up your tickets for either just the conference or for both the conference and tutorials. You can even opt to take the Zend certification while you're at the event.

Zend Blog:
Rise of the Native Cloud Developer - ZendCon Keynote
Oct 11, 2013 @ 12:54:22

If you weren't able to make it to this year's ZendCon conference that just happened in Santa Clara, you can get at least a little piece of it from this new post to the Zend blog. It's a video from a keynote session from Peter Magnusson titled "Rise of the Native Cloud Developer."

At his keynote session at ZendCon, he shared some of the important and sometimes unexpected lessons Google learned while building for the cloud – such as the importance of lightweight execution containers, relying on failure, and how to overcome the speed of light when building distributed systems.

And then he went ahead to discuss about the rise of the “Cloud Native” developer – how engineers and organisations large and small now using these principles to build truly robust and scalable services, and businesses.

You can watch it embedded in the post or full size on Youtube.

The PHP.cc:
A Framework is No Architecture
Jun 20, 2013 @ 09:52:08

On the PHP.cc site today Stefan Priebsch has shared a video of a presentation he made called "A Framework Is No Architecture":

Back in April I presented a keynote titled "A Framework Is No Architecture" at the Inspiring Flow conference. [...] Frameworks solve common problems, and thus allow rapid application development. Agile and incremental software development, however, does not magically create architectures as you go. We will prove the point that your favourite framework does not provide you with an application architecture, and analyze what implications this has.

You can watch the video in-page or over on YouTube if you'd like a bit larger view.

Episode #2012-01 - Douglas Crockford, Programming Style and Your Brain
Oct 15, 2012 @ 10:21:57

The DPCRadio podcast series has returned with recordings from the 2012 edition of the conference. In this first recording they share the keynote given by Douglas Crockford at the start of the combined Dutch PHP and Dutch Mobile Conferences.

Computer programs are the most complicated things that humans make. They must be perfect, which is hard for us because we are not perfect. Programming is thought to be a "head" activity, but there is a lot of "gut" involved. [...] The systems in our brains that make us vulnerable to advertising and propaganda also influence our programming styles. This talk looks systematically at the development of a programming style that specifically improves the reliability of programs. The examples are given in JavaScript, a language with an uncommonly large number of bad parts, but the principles are applicable to all languages.

You can listen to this episode either using the in-page player, downloading the (rather large) mp3 or just subscribe to their feed to get the latest.
