Modern PHP Basics / Object Caching

This meetup will be split into two short talks.  One for the beginner crowd and one for the more advanced.

The first talk will be on Modern PHP Basics.  This ain't your grandma's PHP anymore.  Classes, objects, statics, reflection, unit testing, github, composer; it's  a whole new ballgame.

The second will be on Object Caching.  An effective object caching strategy is key to a performant PHP application. Zack will give a primer on the main concepts of object caching, allowing you to reap the benefits of an object cache in your projects.
