The IPv4 adress space is nearly depleted. With the IPv6 day in June 2011 and with recent IPv6 deployments in critical environments, it is clear that IPv6 will reach the end user soon. But what is IPv6? How does it work and what do PHP developers need to know to make their application ready for the next 20 years? We are used to work with IPv4, but what does IPv6 brings and what do you need to adopt to make your application IPv6 ready.

What are the advantages and drawbacks of IPv6? How to test IPv6?The session will give you an overview about the IPv6. It'll show what a PHP developer needs to know about IPv6 to make his application IPv6 ready.

The speaker is very knowledgable and it shows. It's hard to find the balance on the thin line between overview and in-depth for this subject with a diverse audience like this, but I think the speaker did manage this. Speaking personally, I feel that the introduction & IPv6 overview is stretched a little bit too long. Also, the PHP function that maps IPv4 and IPv6 to packed addresses might have been part of the presentation since it's such a big design pitfall for most beginners.

Interesting talk, some good points addressed on using IPV6, and some good takeaways.

It shows that David knows what he is talking about; he gave a good impression of the new challenges involved with IPv6 and PHP. I was only missing a reference to the inet_pton and inet_ntop functions.

Great content well presented. Good stuff.

Very nice presentation. David really knows his stuff and it shows. Throws in a joke every now and then which keeps the air light while still being very informative.
