-- Scheduled Talks --

RabbitMQ + PHP :: Konstantin Kulishenkov

"In this talk we will go through how to use RabbitMQ and PHP together. We will discuss the AMQP 0.9.1 protocol principles, do a bit of exploration of RabbitMQ's Manager web interface, how to reach and use Rabbit in PHP by running a PHP consumer and produce some messages to it, go into the details of Ack and Reject messages, and finally will learn how Dead Letter Queue works."

Working on old code is a privilege not a punishment :: Declan Kennedy

"PHP is a relatively young language, which began as the personal project of the creator and now powers over 80% of the web. As a result, it has changed massively over the past 25 years, and a lot of techniques and practices which were considered to be idiomatic 10 years ago are now looked at like they're a mysterious stain on your carpet.

This talk is all about the things you can learn by exploring battle-tested production code, if you stop treating maintaining classic code as a punishment."

A Very Quick Intro to Event Storming :: Arne Blankerts

Gathering of requirements: this daunting task that includes endless discussions, unclear specifications and pointless meetings. And all that to in the end create the wrong or broken software. Luckily, we can do better: With Event Storming!
