php[world] is a conference like no other. Designed to bring together the various sub-communities that are linked by the PHP programming language. Drupal, WordPress, Joomla!, Magento, Laravel, Zend Framework, Symfony and CakePHP all have strong independant communities, but together as the PHP community, the sum is greater than the whole.

10:00 Essential PHP 7
Talk by Juliette Reinders Folmer (1 hour)

Overview of the most important changes introduced with PHP 7. We’ve all heard that PHP 7 is fabulous: faster than any previous PHP version and even HHVM, plus some nifty new functionality and much better exception management. But what do we need to do to make our code compatible with PHP 7? What will break and how do we avoid this?

In this talk, we’ll explore the implementation of live examples which bridge the gap between the physical and digital world using PHP: asking Alexa for information on php[world] conference sessions; displaying API data on an Arduino-powered display; using PHP to control LEDs on a Raspberry Pi to monitor application uptime; and connecting IR sensors to Slack to see whether a conference room is in use.

PCI & EMV
Talk by Kevin Shamoun (1 hour)

PCI is a staple of conversation regarding payments security, yet the confusion on compliance remains. Does PCI Compliance apply to you? If you accept credit or debit cards as a form of payment (even if you don’t store that data) it does. Stop in as we aim to demystify this topic by addressing these key components: PA-DSS vs. PCI-DSS, Requirements, EMV, Scope (in and out of), and what’s on the horizon for payments security.

Using a Monolithic Repository Strategy
Keynote by Fabien Potencier (45 minutes)

I’ve been working on Open-Source projects like Symfony or Twig for 10 years now. It has been a great journey so far and I learned a lot, from community management to technical processes. Using a monolithic repository for Symfony is probably one key component to its success and it helped us scale easily. I want to share with you some reasons why using the same strategy for your proprietary projects might be a good idea as well.

How We Got Here: A Brief History of Open Source
Talk by Chris Tankersley (1 hour)

Open Source is one of the core tenets of the PHP language and the community. PHP would not be here if it was not for some of the ideals around software development that occurred in the 50's, 60's, and 70's. How did the open source movement start, and why is PHP one of the few languages that still hold true to those early days of programming? Let's talk about where open source started, and find out how we got here.

Decouple Your Framework Now, Thank Me Later (1 hour)

Frameworks give you a rich toolset to do complex tasks very easy and developers all love it. But then you need to update your framework from one version to another and things are falling apart because of the tight coupling with your business logic. In this talk I show a couple of actual scenarios that went wrong when we moved from one framework to another and the solutions we applied to abstract business logic from framework logic. Even if you're not planning on migrating frameworks yet, decoupling is a good practice that will give you less headaches in the future.

Git Empowered
Talk by Jason McCreary (1 hour)

Git has become the top choice for version control. Yet, many of us are only scratching the surface of Git, often relying on GUI wizards to do the all the things. It’s time to take the power back! In this talk we’ll explore everything from `git init` to `git bisect`. Through demos, we’ll apply Git commands (via the command line); to tackle everyday scenarios. So whether you’re just starting out with Git or a Git master come “Git empowered”.

A Beginner's Guide to Deployments
Talk by Michael Heap (1 hour)

Deploying an application means different things to different people. It may be as simple as running `git pull` on a server, or as complex as building RPMs and deploying to a canary set of servers. This talk covers both ends of the spectrum and the points in between. We’ll outline several tried and tested deployment methodologies that everyone can use, whether you’re working with a simple WordPress site or a dozen micro-services.

Up to My Eyeballs in Technical Debt!
Talk by Steve Grunwell (1 hour)

Every decision we make in our projects has the potential to increase or reduce technical debt. While the only way to completely eliminate the debt is to never write any code, there are steps that we as engineers, project managers, and project stakeholders can take to mitigate our risk. This talk covers the concept of technical debt, its potential to devastate projects, and red flags that project teams can look for to reduce its impact before it spirals out of control.

Talk by David Minton, Stephen Pashby (1 hour)

Website Accessibility refers to the idea that people of all abilities and disabilities be able to access online content. These disabilities can impair vision, hearing, and movement. Since the early days of the web, accessibility focus in the US has been on government run, and government funded websites. This may soon change. Even if the new regulations don’t apply to your business, learn what is involved in making your website accessible to better serve your customers. It’s the right thing to do.
