Talk: DCI-implementation in PHP with mixins

Data-Context-Interaction (DCI) is a paradigm in which behaviour (roles) is only added to objects within a context.­ . I use mixins (from Nooku framework) to add the methods to the objects. This is a bit different from traits, which are added to classes, not to objects.

About: Herman Peeren (@HermanPeeren (

Writing computer-software since 1977; we were still using punch-cards in those days... Later, studied Computer Science in Rotterdam. I like the theoretical disciplines: systems and packages are volatile, but principles remain. I have always worked with many different programming languages and environments.
