PHP 7 and Beyond: The Future of PHP – Anthony Ferrara at PHP World

Anthony "The Mouth" Ferrara - Core PHP ContributorPHPWorld 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. If you don’t have time to watch it right now, here are my tweets as I live tweeted it. (as fast as I could, there were a LOT of tweetable moments) :)

Now for the full thing:

 

Thank to PHP Architect for putting on the event. Can’t wait for 2016. :)

About Cal Evans

Many moons ago, at the tender age of 14, Cal touched his first computer. (We're using the term "computer" loosely here, it was a TRS-80 Model 1) Since then his life has never been the same. He graduated from TRS-80s to Commodores and eventually to IBM PCs.   For the past 10 years, Cal has worked with PHP and MySQL on Linux OSX, and when necessary, Windows. He has built on a variety of projects ranging in size from simple web pages to multi-million dollar web applications. When not banging his head on his monitor, attempting a blood sacrifice to get a particular piece of code working, he enjoys building and managing development teams using his widely imitated but never patented management style of "management by wandering around". Cal is happily married to wife 1.33, the lovely and talented Kathy. Together they have 2 kids who were both bright enough not to pursue a career in IT. Cal blogs at http://blog.calevans.com and is the founder and host of Nomad PHP
