PHP's latest major release is a truly major release! (And tautologies are tautologies.) With more ease-of-use functionality than you can shake a stick at, PHP 8.0 promises to offer more power in less code than any PHP version to date.
Covering the whole of PHP 8.0's improvements would take a whole book (and has), but we can cover the major features in an hour. Expect code that is easier to write, easier to read, and more flexible than ever before in the web's premiere server-side language.
If after this talk you aren't itching to move your code to PHP 8.0, you're either asleep or not a PHP developer (so why are you here?)
