While PHP’s open source community is thriving, only a relatively small number of PHP developers contribute to the number one tool they use on a daily basis: PHP itself. Although it may seem daunting to help out on a project written in C, requiring compilation and linking, getting started is actually pretty easy. In this talk I would like to share my own recent experiences of beginning to contribute to PHP itself. We will see different ways to contribute and cover some practical tips, workflows and resources, so you can start giving back to your programming language straight away!

This was a really good talk how to actually contribute to the PHP core. Thank you, makes the entire (tedious) process more clear and easier to understand!

Very good talk with lots of useful links to read more about PHP core contributing.

Easy to listen with example of real bug case, how to write tests for it, how to fix it and make a pull request. Liked it!

Very practical and empowering talk, I always felt scared with the idea of trying to contribute to PHP core. After the talk, I do feel that if I find a bug in PHP, I will give my best to try to fix it and send in a patch!

Arnout did a great job presenting, thank you for a great talk!
