What to Expect from PHP7


froscon, August 2015

PHP7 is approaching fast, and currently we're at RC1. This talk was my opportunity to share what I'm most excited about with an impressively large audience very early on a Sunday morning after an excellent party the night before at froscon :)

Get Your Patch Accepted


froscon, August 2015

I had the pleasure of returning to froscon this summer and was delighted to have the opportunity to speak in the main track there. This talk builds on my dual experience as an open source project maintainer and also a technical team lead, talking about how to offer awesome patches and how to evaluate whether a patch is, indeed, awesome.

There is also a video: https://media.ccc.de/browse/conferences/froscon/2015/froscon2015-1622-how_to_get_your_patch_accepted.html#video

What to Expect from PHP 7


PHPEM, August 2015

A visit to the excellent PHP East Midlands user group in Leicester for the first outing of this PHP 7 talk. It's aimed at the userland developer/user rather than the core contributor, talking about how the new features will affect our development practices and what to expect when upgrading (spoiler: upgrade is entirely achievable for most PHP apps).

Advanced Adventures in Git


PHP South Coast, July 2015

This was the inaugural PHP South Coast conference and I hope it was the first of many, it was extremely well done with a great crowd and great lineup. The even let me speak and I had the last slot of the day on the main stage with my "choose your own adventure" style git talk. It was all demo (I can only imagine that a barely-working spacebar made that even more slick) so I'm afraid there are no slides, but there are rumours of a video so I will add that here when it is published.
