19:15 Don't be the Coyote! - An introduction to modernising your PHP microservices for high performance with RoadRunner by Matt Cockayne

---

PHP has been evolving for a long time now, offering dramatic improvements as the language has evolved. But it still follows the tried and tested request-response model using web servers such as Apache & Nginx, which isn't always the most efficient way. In his talk, Matt will give you insight into how you can architect your applications using RoadRunner as an application server, load balancer and process manager. Offering high performance, increased throughput, proper support for GRPC and even interoperability with Go, this becomes an invaluable addition to your toolbox!

Matt is both a Polyglot Software Engineer and Scout Leader. Having tried his hand a few different careers he finds that he is happiest working with code. As a long time contributor to opensource and serial tinkerer Matt has spent a long time working on being the best Engineer he can be. As a Scout Leader he spends a lot of his time devoted to teaching valuable life skills to kids aged 7-18. He is a firm believer that being a Good Scout and Great Engineer go hand in hand.

19:15 Growing the PHP Core — One Test at a Time by Florian Engelhardt

---

I am a PHP core contributor and you can be too! You think you need to create a RFC for this or write and maintain a PHP extension or even write C code? Fear no more! In this talk you will learn how you can become a PHP core contributor and give something back to the community by writing tests for PHP core without writing a single line of C code.
