PHP is dead - Long live PHP

PHP - These three letters don't make many people think of anything good. But why are so many people averse to this server-side language? And how can it be that PHP's market share is at an incredible 81 percent, despite all the aversion? Under the headline "PHP is dead - Long live PHP" and in a funny mood we will explore the topic.

Together with Alexander Lichter we will see how important PHP will be in 2018, it's usefulness when programming applications and what the future looks like for PHP! Whether you are a real PHP-hater or a new programmer, this talk will give you some interesting information. And the more people there are, the more fun it'll be.

The popularity of functional programming is without doubt, even in non-functional languages. It's rise is underpinned by Java, which now also includes functional paradigms in the language's core. This talk is perfect for people who never used map, reduce or filter, or for those who don't know a bit about the mentioned functions.

Functional programming is becoming more popular, even in non-functional programming languages. This observation can be seen as approved after even Java added functional paradigms in the form of lambda expressions. This lightning talk will highlight the role of functional programming PHP, which similarities FP and Lego have and why loops are (almost?) obsolete in a functional programming world.
