Transparent Session Management with Sessionz

Eric Mann

Speaker: Eric Mann @ericmann

Sessionz is a new PHP library that adds a custom session manager to your application. On top of this custom manager, you can mix any number of specific handlers into a stack to deal with your data:

  • Write sessions out to the default, filesystem-based session store.
  • Cache session data in-memory for faster reads (and faster performance).
  • Encrypt stored data so it’s protected at rest.
  • Synchronize data to an external storage system so multiple application servers can reference it.

PHP 7.1 in 10 Minutes

PHP 7.1 is hot off the presses. But what’s so different about it? I’ll touch on the highlights, from list-related syntactic sugar to better callables, constant visibility, iterables and more! I’ll also include a few important notes on backward compatibility breaks, so you know how much work it’ll take to upgrade your own code.
