Ever been interested by contributing to the PHP core team? In this workshop you will not only learn how (easy it is) to create your own PHP extension from scratch but you will also strengthen your knowledge of PHP by disecting its internals. After this workshop, you will be able to create an extension on your own, whether it is to optimize the most CPU intensive parts of your code, to create new bindings to C libraries or just to leverage your PHP knowledge. And what if PHP was a web framework for the C developer? This workshop requires a bit of C knowledge and preferably a *nix system.
