Introduction to PHP Extensions

Derick Rethans (16.Feb.2018 at 10:20, 1 hr )
Talk at PHP UK Conference 2018 (English - UK)

Rating: 5 of 5

In this presentation, we take a first look at writing PHP extensions. Using step-by-step examples, we'll take a function written in PHP and convert them into a loadable extension using C. We'll then test both versions and compare the results. After seeing the size and scope of the benefits that can be realized with only a few minor changes, you'll want to try it out for yourself. You'll also understand why we start with simple things, and not try to rewrite all of Symfony in C.

Very dense as expected. Looking forward to the slides / blog about the dark arts of extension development ;)

Fantastic talk which really helped to understand some of the confusing aspects of internals.

The pace was perfect and packed in plenty of information without going rushed

Great look under the hood of extensions and their complexity. A lot of information to absorb but delivered in an way that softened the blow consderably.
