Internationalisation is going to be tough when you have to implement all the different data representations (numbers, currencies, dates, collations and much more) by yourself. Fear not, because with the International Components for Unicode, or ICU for short, every developer has access to the different formats and information every developer needs. For C, C++, Java... and with the Intl extension PHP too. This talk shows how you can keep your Projects localized with the Intl extension.

Will definitely consider using more of the ICU components (or even Claudio's own lib) in my next project after hearing the talk. Gave good, real-life examples about what can be achieved by using the ICU/intl components.

Only thing I missed was an overview over the intl classes (e.g. a simple, bullet-point list) before going into greater detail on each of the classes.
