✩ PHP Generics Today (Almost) - Dave Liddament (@DaveLiddament)

Support for generics is high up many PHP developers' wish lists. This talk is a deep dive into generics, their benefits and how, with existing tools, we can get the power of generics today.

✩ Fun With a Soldering Iron - John Cook (@JohnAlanCook)
