C-style macro support in PHP? Code verification? Simple domain-specific languages? You can have all that and more with the new PHP extension that allows you to run custom PHP script on PHP code right before it gets to the compiler. Think of the juicy possibilities and come to this session to see how it works and what dirty, dirty things you can make it do.
I’m Andrei Zmievski, a web developer and founding member of Analog, living and working in San Francisco. Prior to forming Analog, I was Open Source Fellow at Digg and a platform engineer at Yahoo.
As a core developer of PHP and a member of the PHP Group, I help curate development of the world’s most popular (and open source) web development language. Along the way, I started PHP-GTK, helped create Smarty, co-wrote PHP Developer’s Cookbook, and have been serving as the architect of the Unicode and internationalization support in PHP 6.
I’m a regular speaker at leading conferences like OSCON, as well as PHP events worldwide. To keep a healthy mix with my technical work, I’m training for the Paris marathon in 2010, which should offset my dedication to fine food. I love good beer, brew some of my own, and if you ever want to try a craft beer yourself, I can heartily recommend North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout.
