I am attending and presenting at the the php|tek 2009 show in Chicago this week. The opening keynote was presented by Andrei Zmievski discussing The Future of PHP 6. Although he touched on PHP 6+, he spent a good deal of the time exploring the new features in PHP 5.3. As it turns out, the big new features in PHP 5.3 are closures, and lambda function
If you are attending the show, feel free to pop by the Sybase iAnywhere booth and say, “Hello”.
