    PDX PHP - The Red Team is Coming!

    ImpactFlow

    There will be food, give-a-ways (elephpants), and a great time to network with the fabulous PHP Community!

    This month we will have a special guest speaker from Las Vegas: 

    Adam Englander is an Engineer, Speaker, and Author with 30 years of experience in building business applications. He has been an outspoken evangelist of PHP during what he calls “The PHP Renaissance”. Adam is a strong believer in the power of strong developer communities. He is a actively involved in the Las Vegas technical community and the Founder of PHP Vegas. Always looking to push the boundaries of what is possible with PHP, Adam has been working to expose the PHP community at large to IoT and asynchronous programming. He also advocates building better applications today by building well tested applications that are cryptography secure.

    The Red Team is Coming!

    The Red Team, hackers, criminal organizations, and nation states, are a constant threat. The systems we build are the targets. We need to understand the human collateral that hangs in the balance. We embrace methodologies to write better code and make our lives better. They do nothing for the rest of humanity that is directly affected by security vulnerabilities we introduce. In this presentation, I will put a human face on the users of our software. I will challenge you to think in terms of flesh and blood rather than ones and zeros. We are all the Blue Team. We protect the rest of humanity. Join me in the fight. The Red Team is coming!

    PDX PHP - Let's Talk Scope

    ImpactFlow

    There will be food, give-a-ways (elephpants), and a great time to network with the fabulous PHP Community!

    Scope is a major factor in any application, from programing scope to project scope, and communication is key. We will discuss different application scopes including global, functional, class, and package scope. From there we will show how everything ties together with communication of the project itself. Why and how to stay on top of project scope and how that can make or break the final outcome.

    Join us to learn and share with others in the community as we all grow in understanding and skills

    PDX PHP - Using Generators to Beat Memory Bloat

    ImpactFlow

    There will be food, give-a-ways (elePHPants) and a great time getting to know your fabulous PHP Community!

    6:30 - We'll start off with Pizza and networking at 6:30

    6:45 - 7:45 - Move into the presentation on Generators, by Korvin Szanto

    Memory usage is something that we as developers have to be aware of. Ever debugging a memory issue and find that your once small dataset has ballooned out of proportion? And instead of dealing with the issue, you opt for upping the memory limit? Iterators can be the answer but they require a lot of code and can be very difficult to understand at a glance. Thankfully since PHP 5.5 Generators help us create and manage what would be complex iterators with simple syntax sugar. In this talk I will go over some of the ways you can implement generators and cure your memory bloat.


    7:45 - Prizes

    7:45 - 8:30 - Hack and Help. Have a chance to try out Generators for yourself, or bring your own project and get some help from the community.
