Crazy Fun Experiments with PHP (Not for Production) (Zan Baldwin)

Video not working?

It looks like your browser may not support the H264 codec. If you're using Linux, try a different browser or try installing the gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-plugins-good packages.

Thanks! This saves us from needing to use Flash or encode videos in multiple formats. And that let's us get back to making more videos :). But as always, please feel free to message us.

SymfonyCon 2019 Amsterdam presentation by Zan Baldwin.

Talk slides

I’ll show you the crazy things you can do in PHP with streams and autoloader overloading to write your own language features. I’ll also show you how you can supercharge your Symfony applications using aspect-orientated programming or encrypt source code on-the-fly using only PHP. As if that wasn’t enough, we’ll go even further and make PHP a polyglot language by importing esoteric language scripts! These aren’t your average hacks and shouldn’t be run in production... but let’s explore these concepts as fun experiments so you’ll never think of PHP as boring again!

Transcript & caption for the talk will be added soon.
