We are excited to host “PHP 7 the Big 5+1 with Cal Evans” this Wednesday night at Delray Tech Space!

South Florida PHP Users Group at Delray Tech SpaceUpgrades are scary. Many of us remember moving to PHP 5.3 and all that it entailed. Some of us remember moving to PHP 5.0 and the headaches that caused. Now we are all faced with PHP7 and some of us are starting to sweat.

Fear not. While PHP7 is a major upgrade to the engine, the big changes are new features for developers to use, there are very few BC breaks.

This class takes a look at the 5 things that will make the biggest difference to developers. it will get you started down the road of preparing your code for PHP7


Cal Evans

Cal Evans at SoFloPHP in Delray Beach

Many moons ago, at the tender age of 14, Cal touched his first computer. (We’re using the term “computer” loosely here, it was a TRS-80 Model 1) Since then his life has never been the same. He graduated from TRS-80s to Commodores and eventually to IBM PC’s.For the past 13 years Cal has worked with PHP and MySQL on Linux, OSX, and Windows. He has built a variety of projects ranging in size from simple web pages to multi-million dollar web applications. When not banging his head on his monitor, attempting a blood sacrifice to get a particular piece of code working, he enjoys building and managing development teams using his widely imitated but never patented management style of “management by wandering around”. These days, when not working with PHP, Cal can be found working on a variety of projects like CoderFaire. He speaks at conferences around the world on topics ranging from technical talks to motivational talks for developers. If you happen to meet him at a conference, don’t be afraid to buy him a shot of Bourbon.Cal is based in Nashville TN where he is happily married to wife 1.31, the lovely and talented Kathy. Together they have 2 wonderful kids who were both smart enough not to pursue a job in IT.
