A look into the internals of PHP; How it came to be, how it works, and how PHP 7 leapt far out in front of its predecessor on performance and memory consumption with some thoughts on what's next for PHP 8.

I learned so much about how PHP works under the hood, I feel comfortable looking into it more now! Thanks!

As someone who doesn't write C, there's a fair amount of this talk that went right over my head, but it was still accessible enough that someone who lives in userland PHP could follow.

It's always great hearing about why PHP sped up so much between 5 and 7. Cool peeling back the curtain into what PHP is doing under the hood.

Good job sharing your slides at the beginning. I think this should be a trend since sometimes projectors fail, tall people sit in front of someone, or they are just unable to see well. It was a good save for the under-powered projectors.
