This month, we'll look at what's new, changed, and deprecated in the brand-new PHP 8.1. From larger changes like enums, fibers, readonly properties, and first-class callables, to smaller quality of life improvements like string-unpacked array keys and the array_is_list function, Laravel Austin's (and co-organizer of Longhorn PHP) Hunter Skrasek will guide you through what makes PHP 8.1 worth the upgrade effort.
What's New in PHP 8.1
Presented by Hunter Skrasek
I'm an Austin based web developer that started programming in PHP when I was 14. When I first started programming in PHP it was all spaghetti code, and I wasn't even aware Object Oriented Programming was a thing, since I was self taught. Fast forward eight years and I have learned a couple of things, such as MVC, OOP, Version Control, Agile, and more. After graduating from St. Edwards University this May (2014), I started working on RESTful API's, and it's become my new favorite thing to do.
