Zend thread Safety, also called ZTS, is a special way to build a thread safe PHP interpreter, usually used under Windows or Unixes requiring its help.
We'll start by the beginning, recalling attendees what threads are, why we use them, and what we can do with them.
Then, we'll remind ourselves on how the PHP engine works internally, before talking about how it isolates requests from threaded webserver.
This talk is about internal technical details of how parallel computation have been achieved into the PHP language.

I liked this presentation. A subject that most people don't really need in their daily work, but still it gives a great understanding on how the PHP core works under the hood.
