480 minute beginner workshop
Ok, I cheated, it's not directly PHP ;-) We write PHP extensions with Zephir, which nearly resembles the syntax of PHP and is easy to use like PHP. Need to write faster applications than possible with PHP 7? Or only some fast algorithms? Protect your code from your customers but hate Ioncube? Need to integrate a C library without coding C? Zephir is your solution. Simple, fast and easy.
In this workshop you will learn how to use Zephir and the ecosystem, and write your first PHP extensions covering all the questions above. After this day you'll go back to work with the confidence to write a PHP extension without hassle and create awesome applications.
