Presented at WordCamp London, a chance to showcase some important new features and gotchas for those upgrading to modern versions of PHP.

I had the pleasure of speaking at PHPUK again this year, this time with a talk on the best bits of the newer versions of PHP and some tips for upgrading. Since the first step to getting ready for PHP 7 is to get up onto PHP 5.5 or 5.6, I think this was a very relevant topic.
I gave this talk at Day Camp for Developers, a virtual conference attended by people all over the world. This makes for fun with timezones, but luckily I was allowed to have the first slot so that I was still awake for my talk!
This is a long-running podcast show by my friend and ex-colleague Cal Evans; in it, he interviews community people about their activities. This is actually my first time on this show, because he's never managed to grab me in person before.
ZendCon's main stage was my setting for this talk, and it was quite an experience! This talk is really a case study, showing how to build a simple API and wire it up to a basic website, and it's fun to give. The crowd were great although the big stage was rather daunting!
