Don't worry, this is not about the goto keyword.

In this presentation, I am showing you some of the inner workings of PHP. We are going to look at how different language keywords and constructs are handled internally. Basically, everything is converted to goto, but the how and why, is not as simple as it seems!

This is a very in depth talk, mostly interesting to people that want to know how PHP works internally. Expect lots of wonkyness, a form of assembly, and trees.

Impressive and interesting:-) I truly appreciate your contributions to PHP!

It would have been interesting to here your tips for small optimization in php code, since you obviously know a lot about what happens underneath. Like, is switch statements expensive?

Interesting Talk
