Building Rich Web applications with PHP 5
PHP has become amazingly popular due to its simple pragmatic approach to solving the web problem. The web problem has been changing and there is a lot of talk about Web 2.0 and the Programmable Web. PHP is more relevant than ever as people are combining web service components to build rich AJAX-driven web applications. In this talk Rasmus will cover the basic building blocks PHP 5 provides for building these rich applications and show plenty of interesting examples along the way.
Rasmus Lerdorf is known for having gotten the PHP project off the ground in 1995, the mod_info Apache module and he can be blamed for the ANSI92 SQL-defying LIMIT clause in mSQL 1.x which has now, at least conceptually, crept into both MySQL and PostgreSQL. Prior to joining Yahoo! as an infrastructure engineer in 2002, he was at a string of companies including Linuxcare, IBM, and Bell Canada working on Internet technologies.
