## Elixir for PHP Developers (Nacho Martín, Limenius)
PHP is generally used for the pattern that it was designed to fulfil: receive a request and produce a response, and it does it very well. However, in some particular scenarios we can complement it with tools that come from a completely different background. Elixir/OTP is one of such tools. In this talk we will introduce it and focus on different scenarios that can be particularly interesting to complement PHP, such as realtime notifications, the use of websockets and PubSub communications, supervisors, or patterns for games and collaborative apps.
Nacho Martín is a developer and consultant at Limenius, company that he co-founded. He started using PHP more than 10 years ago, with an eye open for other technologies that can solve particular problems.
## Design with Objects, Implement with Functions (Lars Strojny, CTO InterNations)
Object-oriented and functional programming seem to be at odds first. The talk will show where the two paradigms collide and how to use them productively together and combine the strengths of both worlds. Even with PHP which doesn’t lend itself easily to functional programming.
Lars Strojny is the CTO at InterNations, the worlds biggest social network for expats. A technologist at heart and a manager by day his main interest is how to build better software. As an avid open source contributor to projects like Symfony and PHP he maintains a functional library for PHP for fun and, hopefully, profit.
