Pushing the Limits of PHP with ReactPHP
Talk by Christian Lück (45 minutes)
It's 2017 and times have changed – yet PHP is still most often associated with your average product catalogue or blogging platform. In this talk you will learn that PHP’s huge ecosystem has way more to offer and PHP is not inferior at all to its evil cousin Node.js. You will learn about the core concepts of async PHP and why you too should care about ReactPHP being a real thing. The talk has a strong focus on sparking the idea that PHP can be way faster and more versatile than you probably thought. Bring along an open mind and through lots of examples and demos learn why what sounds crazy at first might soon be a valuable addition in your toolbox.
The GDPR is coming, are you ready?
Talk by Michelangelo van Dam (45 minutes)
On May 25, 2018 all companies collecting and processing data of people from within the European Union must comply to the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR. In this talk we'll cover what the GDPR is and how it will impact businesses within the EU and abroad, what can be done to comply to this regulation and how to proceed further. This talk will not provide you legal answers, but will give you technology solutions that will make your applications compliant to these regulations. Even if you're not processing data from the EU, these solutions will offer you better protection to the data you currently keep and will ensure that in the case of a breach, the impact will be minimum.
