On the Zend Developer Zone they've posted about a presentation given by Anthony Ferrara at this year's php[world] conference that just wrapped up in Washington, D.C. In it he talks about the future of PHP, PHP 7 and beyond.
PHPWorld was a great conference. If you didn’t attend, you missed a lot. Several of the keynotes just rocked the house including both Lorna Mitchell and Tessa Mero. The highlight for me however was Anthony Ferrara’s closing keynote, “PHP 7 and Beyond: The Future of PHP”. Anthony is a Core developer but also a vibrant member of the community.
Anthony is a good friend of mine but this is the first time I have ever had the chance to see him deliver a keynote talk. I do hope it won’t be the last. The recording of Anthony’s talk is embedded below the storify. I highly recommend watching it.
He (Cal Evans) includes his set of live tweets from during the presentation as well as an embedded version of the video if you'd like to watch the entire thing. It was also posted to YouTube if you prefer to watch it there.
