Functional Programming in PHP

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the term "Functional Programming" while reading online discussions about programming languages or programming in general. People talking about FP routinely use terms that can be strange and unfamiliar to developers coming from the imperative world. 

So what exactly is Functional Programming? Where does it come from? How does it differ from the programming I already know? 

This talk will try to answer these questions by weaving seemingly unrelated concepts into a (hopefully) coherent story of FP, using PHP as the vehicle of expressing these ideas. The side effect (pun intended) of having a grasp of FP will make you a better developer, which will make you a better PHP developer, which will make you a better Symfony developer.

Zsolt Szende started hacking on his Dad's C64 at the ripe age of 6. He's been working as a developer in London for 12 years, the last 8 being as an independent contractor, helping companies write better software. His love of math led him down the FP rabbit hole a while ago and ever since he's trying to understand concepts that he thought he understood before.

[Lightning talk] Multi-tenant database architecture with Symfony and Doctrine

Grzegorz will present a slightly different approach to designing and scaling a SaaS application based on multiple databases with the same schema.

Grzegorz Kaszuba - a php backend developer with love for shooting and scrum; also experienced bouncer that bounces colleagues from his team in the agile way.

[Lightning talk] Breaking down the monolith and deploying with Concourse CI

In this short presentation Ayan and Carlos will present the architecture of Comic Relief's givingpage application and how it's deployed with Concourse pipelines.
