First talk: Pushing the limits with ReactPHP – why ReactPHP is awesome and why you should care
It's 2018 and times have changed – yet PHP is still most often
associated with your average product catalog or blogging platform. In
this talk you will learn that PHP's huge ecosystem has way more to offer
and PHP is not inferior at all to its evil cousin Node.js.
You will learn about the core concepts of async PHP and why you too
should care about ReactPHP being a real thing. The talk has a strong
focus on sparking the idea that PHP can be way faster and more versatile
than you probably thought. Bring along an open mind and through lots of
examples and demos learn why what sounds crazy at first might soon be a
valuable addition in your toolbox.
Christian "@another_clue" Lück is a software engineer with a Master's
degree in Information Systems Engineering and over a decade of
experience with PHP, both commercially and as a regular contributor and
maintainer of quite a few open source projects. But most importantly,
he's always been passionate about pushing the limits and thinking
outside the box. In fact, he's so passionate about this that he quit his
regular job in order to become a Freelance Software Engineering
Consultant and to focus on some thrilling things ahead :-)
Workshop: Getting Started with ReactPHP (60min - open end)

Christian, one of the core maintainers of ReactPHP, will show us how to get started with ReactPHP. Bring your laptop and start hacking with us or simply stay for a chat and free beer.
After the introductory talk you should already have an idea what ReactPHP is all about and now you want to learn how to get started with ReactPHP? Then this tutorial is for you! We will start from scratch and build a demo application that pushes data from your command line in real-time to your browser. Several scenarios are prepared, but ideally you bring in your own ideas: Let’s build an interactive chat bot, an interactive CLI tool or even an actual desktop GUI, it’s up to you! Clearly, this will be limited by the available time, not by possible ideas.
The tutorial assumes people are familiar with PHP, have PHP and their favorite IDE already setup, but does not require people to be familiar with ReactPHP. All you need is to create an empty project directory and have Composer ready; no need for any complicated webserver or database setup.
If you want to participate and have your laptop set up, you are invited to join the live hands-on coding session. If not, that's okay too. You can pair up with others, contribute your ideas or simply enjoy the free beer. Cheers!
