PHP is filled with many amazing functions/classes that we use daily (PDO, array_*, etc.). There are also many classes/functions that have been created to make our lives much easier, many of which are not popularized in tutorials/articles. Whether you're a developer of 6 months or 6 years there are many things that got missed. I will be discussing usefulness of filter_var and the plethora of benefits when using SPL.

Good Job! Very informative, but you went through slides pretty quickly.

Good information, but you should work on your pacing. You went really quickly through the iterators and filters, but got bogged down in the XML stuff.

Thanks for the feedback so far. I'm actually going to pull out Iterators into its own presentation soon enough :)

This was perhaps the one talk where I learned something I didn't know. The bit about filter_vars was good info - didn't know that. I agree that the XML discussion bogged everything down.

I can't really fault you for that, though. XML is a really, really dry subject, and IMO there's really no way to make it interesting.
