PHP 8: a new version, a new era

PHP 8 is coming, and you might be wondering: what are the new features? Have they fixed that weird bug? Is my application getting any faster? Can I support both PHP 7 and 8 versions in my library or framework?

In this talk, we are going to spend some time looking at everything that has changed in PHP 8, both internally and externally, either new features and changes of behavior (Break Compatibility, you know them).

As one of the Release Managers, Gabriel Caruso is going to tell you all about it, giving you the resources to get the latest major version of PHP, that is scheduled for November 2020, up and running!

In your opinion, which feature is the most interesting in PHP 8?

Choosing one among the best features in PHP 8.0, I’d say The main reason is that now, with this feature on PHP 8.0, methods, properties, and everything else that had an annotation to indicate it, can be replaced with actual types, and we’ll have much cleaner codebases.

How long have you been with the PHP core team and how did you get into it?

My first PR to php-src was back in 2018 ( I consider that my starting point and date in PHP.

I started contributing with it just for study purposes, I was studying about Open Source and Compilers, and PHP filled those topics.

As a PHP core team member, what would you advise to a developer who’d like to contribute to PHP?

You can contribute with PHP via a number of ways:

– Documentation:
– Report bugs (so we can fix them):
– Write new tests:

But if you really want to contribute to PHP’s source code, one advise: in the end of the day, PHP is just a bunch of code put together. Go step by step, line by line, debug it and understand the code as you’d understand the codebase of a new company you are joining.
