Introduction to PHP Extensions

Talk at Longhorn PHP 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.

I enjoyed Derick's talk. Even though I don't anticipate a need for writing our own extensions anytime in the near future, it was still cool to see how it was done.

It was also a fun trip down memory lane trying to remember how C works :)
