PHP Extension Development with C++
Comments are closed.
Nice solution to write PHP extension in CPP without all the hasels.
It was very good but I started to lose focus with so much code on the slides. Perhaps a concrete example over the course of the presentation would have helped.
For me as a non c or c++ programmer who never did a php extension before some of the stuff was a bit too abstract. building the talk around a more concrete working example would have helped i guess instead of just showing only lot's of code on slides and walking through it.
but still got me interested into looking into extension development further
Having already written a couple of PHP Extensions I was able to follow and get all the points that where thrown at me but I didn't feel like it was easy for other people to follow up.
What I mainly missed was some more structure surrounding the code examples. Even small headings like "this is how it works in C", "this is what you could do in C++ to wrap the lib" and "this is how you use the C++ API" would have helped me a lot to focus. Maybe an agenda and telling me what I get to hear would also helped with the structure.
From a presentational point of view the talk was not all that fluent but the points where clear and easy to follow.
All in all I'm really happy about this presentation and the work that was being done. It's always nice to see some "internals" stuff "demystified" :)
