PHP in 2018

This talk will provide a look at the current state of PHP. Join us to hear about the history of PHP until this point, what's new in 7.3, and an overview of some exciting new features in the recent version: performance, compiler optimizations, static analysis, and a cool new low-overhead profiler.
