January 2018 edition of 010PHP user group meetup:
Getting started with PHP core development
Talk by Arnout Boks (45 minutes)
While PHP’s open source community is thriving, only a relatively small number of PHP developers contribute to the number one tool they use on a daily basis: PHP itself. Although it may seem daunting to help out on a project written in C, requiring compilation and linking, getting started is actually pretty easy. In this talk I would like to share my own recent experiences of beginning to contribute to PHP itself. We will cover some practical tips, workflows and resources, so you can start giving back to your programming language straight away!
