You’ve got that need—the need for speed! Using step-by-step examples, we’ll take functions written in PHP and convert them into loadable extensions using C. We’ll then test both versions and compare the results. After seeing the size and scope of the benefits that can be realized with only a few minor changes, you’ll be ready to take the plunge. You’ll also understand why we start with simple things, and not try to rewrite all of Symfony in C.

It was really interesting to see exactly how to write PHP extensions. Derick was filling in for another speaker short notice and did an amazing job. I left knowing why and how to write extensions, including syntax and tests.

This talk inspired me! I want to learn C, I want to extend PHP, now I just need a good idea and the knowledge. But this presentation makes it feel within your grasp. Thanks!
