How PHP ticks

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.

Let's Get Random: Under the Hood of PHP 7's CSPRNG

--Sammy Kaye Powers (@SammyK)

Randomness is really important in many cryptographic contexts. Unfortunately true randomness is a non-trivial achievement for computers. In fact, using weak sources of randomness can leave your application open to myriad vulnerabilities. Enter: a good cryptographically secure pseudorandom number generator (CSPRNG). We'll discuss the importance of using good sources of randomness, the CSPRNG options we had in PHP 5.x, and how the new-hotness CSPRNG functions in PHP 7 work under the hood.

And who would have thought, it FIGures.

Wondering what goes on in the Framework Interoperability Group and why PHP Standards Recommendations matter to you? We'll take a look at the process your favorite PHP components use to cooperate with each other towards building consistent, interoperable components. We'll also take a short run through what PSRs already exist and have been widely adopted, and how you can make your voice heard guiding the future of the PHP ecosystem.

Join us in Seattle this September!

The Pacific Northwest PHP Conference is a 3-day event for web developers focused but not confined to PHP. In previous years have included world renowned and talented new speakers covering a range of topics like APIs, Frameworks, testing and version control.

This year we are looking forward to bringing together the rich and diverse talent of our community as speakers and attendees to share knowledge and inspiration.

We will dive deep into understanding technology, tools, and processes we all rely on, and explore a wide range technology and processes we are eager to get to know.
