PHP is a huge language, with lots of "kitchen sink" functionality for you to build data structures with. But did you know PHP includes a standard library that has built-in structures like linked lists, queues, stacks, and higher-performance arrays? This talk will cover a few of the more interesting ones in depth, including how to use them and most importantly why you'd use them over other solutions.

Omni’s talks are always as entertaining as they are enlightening.

Really informative talk, and the JRPG examples generally seemed to resonate with the audience. A bit more authority (rather than anecdotal evidence, maybe a "I ran these benchmarks on a 512MB Digital Ocean VPS, and here's the output:"-type approach?)

This talk was interesting and very well presented, but I found it less than compelling in convincing me to use any of these methods.

I learned a ton here, had never even looked at SPL stuff. The object stack looks especially useful for a project I'm working on. Omni did a great job covering a ton of material.
