Extending without pulling a muscle

A session at Dutch PHP Conference 2016

Friday 24th June, 2016

2:30pm to 3:15pm (AMT)

Language runtimes do their best to meet all your development needs, but sometimes there’s some random C library you need access to from a higher level language, and it’s just not there. Learning PHP’s zvals and HashTables, and its score of macros and pointers can be intimidating and off-putting. Sara will show that there’s a better way: HHVM extensions require little more experience than a firm knowledge of PHP, and a willingness to break things. By the end of this presentation, we’ll have live-coded a real-world extension wrapping a real-world library, and you’ll be able to as well.
