Adam Trachtenberg, Senior Manager of Platform Evangelism, eBay
Date: Tuesday, July 27
Time: 8:45am - 12:15pm
Location: Salon G
The tutorial for people who know PHP 4 and want to quickly get up to speed with PHP 5. The author of O'Reilly's Migrating to PHP 5, demonstrates what's new in PHP 5:
A massively improved object model with accessors, visibility, and interfaces.
An updated MySQL extension for MySQL 4.1 and 5.0.
Rewritten XML tools: DOM, XSLT, XPath, and SimpleXML.
Bundled database support with SQLite.
Exceptions, Iterators, and Streams.
Examples use a "Before and After" approach that starts with PHP 4 code and updates it to take advantage of PHP 5 features. Attendees will see how PHP 5 makes it easy to create code that's more powerful, yet clearer, than before, and why PHP 5 will make you a happy programmer.
