PHP Generics Today (almost)

Generics in PHP by @DaveLiddament best presentation of #PHPUK20 by far. Now that is how you do a presentation! Clearly structured and organized and straight to the point with awesome code examples. Thank you

This is simply BRILLIANT! Well deserving of the five stars...


Ask PHP developers which big feature they wished PHP had and many would say generics. Hopefully one day they'll be implemented at language level but what if we want them now?

This talk starts with a deep delve into generics and the benefits of them. We'll then look at how existing static analysis tools can be configured to (almost) give us generics in PHP now.

This is a talk version of my article PHP Generics today (almost).
