Speaker Spotlight # 22

We have Great speakers coming this year to our conference. Here is a spotlight on one of them.

Patrick Allaert is a freelance system engineer, founder of Libereco Technologies and co-founder of [catchy.io http://catchy.io/]. Using PHP since the early days of PHP 3, he is contributing/hacking on a wide variety of projects including PHP, [eZ Publish http://ez.no/], Linux and KDE. In his spare time, he works on the PHP monitoring extension: [APM http://pecl.php.net/package/APM] for which he is the lead developer, that doesn’t give him much time to [blog http://patrickallaert.blogspot.com/] or to tweet (@patrick_allaert).

Patrick will be speaking on:  PHP Data Structures (and the impact of PHP 7 on them)

We all have certainly learned data structures at school: arrays, lists, sets, stacks, queues (LIFO/FIFO), heaps, associative arrays, trees, … and what do we mostly use in PHP? The “array”! In most cases, we do everything and anything with it but we stumble upon it when profiling code.During this session, we’ll learn again to use the structures appropriately, leaning closer on the way to employ arrays, the SPL and other structures from PHP extensions as well.The impact that PHP 7 should have on data structures will be introduced as well.
AND

Advanced debugging techniques

Step-by-step debugging with Xdebug is no secret for you? Perfect then, because we won’t talk about it. We will rather see tools that let you know what’s really happening in your PHP code, like the recent phpdbg debugger and phptrace tool, process tracing tools like: strace, ltrace, the Linux inotify mechanism, tcpdump/wireshark for network analysis, MySQL query debugging with MySQL proxy.
