Our third TechShock will focus on modern PHP.

We will hold several sessions about modern PHP development. This will include both the changes in the latest PHP versions and the (r)evolution that has happened in the ecosystem.

The talks will be for people with PHP experience, and those with knowledge of other languages wanting to learn more about the progress that PHP has made the last two years.

The meetup will be held in VG's auditorium, in Akersgata 55
(Map: ).

Refreshments will be available during the breaks. Afterwards we'll head to a nearby pub and socialize over a few beers.
