Drupal 7 will finally open up the wild and cool world of PHP 5 to developers. But what do we do with all of these new tools? And how do they work? This two-hour tag-team session by Crell and chx will cover PHP 5.2's major new features, possible ways they could be leveraged in Drupal, and a lively discussion of the myriad possibilities. Specific topics planned include:
* PDO database abstraction (very briefly)
* The new object model, including magic methods.
* The Standard PHP Library
* XML deliciousness (very briefly)
* The Filter extension
* Date handling
* What else do you want to know?
Hopefully that will generate ideas leading to regular coding sessions led by chx with brainstorming recaps each day.
Slides are attached, but are not as impressive without our snappy dialog. :-) For that, see the videos.
