This meeting is over, but you can still purchase the video.
If you use other languages, you’ve probably found features that you wish PHP had. Perhaps you miss that bit of C# class accessor syntax. Or perhaps you’d really like to use JS arrow functions…
You can have those things, and you don’t even have to write C to do it.
I’m going to introduce you to a library that will allow you to use preprocessor macros, to turn your desired bit of syntax into valid PHP syntax. Then I’m going to show you a few libraries that use those macros to bring fresh and interesting new syntax to everyday PHP applications.
I am a developer and writer, working at io.co.za. I usually work on application architecture, though sometimes I build compilers or robots.
