This months Nomad PHP meetings are approaching fast and are scheduled for August 21st. This months topics include:
Async PHP with React by Jeremy Mikola
Event-driven programing is a familiar and useful tool for crafting client/server apps and asynchronous libraries. Akin to Node.js or Python’s Twisted, React brings PHP up to speed with all of the necessary pieces in a well-packaged framework. This session will introduce the concept of event loops, non-blocking IO, and async programming in PHP, and explore ways it can serve in your technology stack.
Web Frontend, API Backend by Lorna Mitchell
Ever wondered what a service-oriented website would actually look like in PHP? This session will show you! We’ll start with the API, building a simple one with familiar tools. Next, we’ll build a website that doesn’t use a database – instead it talks to our API to fetch data. Then the tricky part: securing access between the two, allowing API access for both the website itself and for logged-in users on that site using OAuth. Whatever your aspirations as a developer, if they include building API backends for apps or sites to consume, building lightweight web frontends, or building secure and scalable systems in PHP, then this session is for you.
