    CTO @ Zend Technologies

    Version 7 radically changed PHP’s position in the context of performance and sparked considerable renewed enthusiasm around the language. With the ever-changing technology landscape, we’re not sitting idle in the development team – and are already hard at work on new technologies and capabilities that will keep PHP as the technology of choice for years to come.  In this session, we will tell the story of how PHP 7 was conceived and the impact it has on the PHP space, as well as provide a glimpse into some of the research projects that will likely make it into the next major version of PHP, designed to ensure PHP stays relevant with emerging technology paradigms.
