The successful launch of PHP 5.3 in 2009 has not been the end of the development for PHP. Quite contrary: with new contributors, new ideas and new features PHP proves to be among the language platforms moving the fastest. In this session you will learn about new features in PHP 5.4, which recently reached beta status, and will learn what you can do now to prepare your code.

Nice overview on new and updated features of PHP 5.4. Competent and fluent talking Speaker. A little bit too short, almost 15 minutes left.

Johannes Schlüter hat natürlich aktuelles Wissen über die Neuerungen von php5.4, beleuchtet diese aber kritisch genug; Danke für den guten Überblick;

I fully agree to Michael and Stefan, too.

I think the speaker could have be better prepared. Something like "Oh, sorry, this is an old version of my slide..." or "I dont have actual numbers how the performance is improved..." is not perfect...

I missed also some examples how the new features can make my code better. For e. I think the feature of returning a function is a very dangerous thing. This can lead to a complete non readable code. Maybe I'm wrong... But U see I would like to have an information on how I can use it appropriate....

But I really had the felling that he was a developer and not a marketing guy ;-)
