PHP is a huge language, with lots of "kitchen sink" functionality for you to build data structures with. But did you know PHP includes a standard library that has built-in structures like linked lists, queues, stacks, and higher-performance arrays? This talk will cover a few of the more interesting ones in depth, including how to use them and most importantly why you'd use them over other solutions.

I'm not as familiar with some of standard library options as I should be even after a long history with PHP. Omni gave a good rundown of a number of the items and helped fill some of the gaps that I have. I'd recommend his talk for those looking to understand more about data structures.

Entertaining talk. Lots of standards library goodies I didn't know about, excited to find places to apply them. The speaker did a great job with code examples & presented some solid take aways based on his own comparative experiments.
