In May we're hosting a night of talks about frameworks!

- PPI - The Interop Framework
Paul Dragoonis (, Lead Developer at Kainos (, PHP internals and PHP-FIG voting member and Vítor Brandão (, PHP Software Engineer at Kainos (, Entrepreneur and Gentoo Linux contributor

Paul and Vítor will be showing off the newly released PPI 2.1, explaining what we’ve been working on and what extra value using an interop framework brings on top of just using a single standalone framework.

- Do you speak PSR-7?
Gary Hockin (, Developer at Roave (

The PHP-FIG has recently put PSR-7 into vote (and by the time this talk is given it should be easily voted in). PSR-7 relates HTTP Messages; HTTP request and response objects that describe the interaction between a client and server in any HTTP exchange. While this doesn’t sound that interesting, PSR-7 threatens to open the door to truly interoperable libraries and frameworks, and heralds a new golden age for the next generation of PHP packages.

Join us in this brief introduction to PSR-7 and the core concepts around phly/http, a concrete implementation of the standard.

- A Slim 3 primer
Rob Allen (, Software Engineer, ZF contributor and author of Zend Framework in Action (

Slim is a PHP micro framework that enables you to write powerful web applications and APIs. In this talk, I will give an overview of the upcoming third version of framework and show how you can easily write maintainable applications with it.
