Marijan Šuflaj: Xdebug – It’s easy, Mkay

There are times when you get suckered in
By vardump and printf to stdin
But it’s when you do these things too much
That you’ve become slow and must get back in touch
You can do it It’s all up to you-mmmmmkay
With a little plan you can change your life tooo-day
You don’t have to spend your life var_dumping stuff
Being made fun of because of that
Follow my plan and very soon you will see-eeyy, it’s easy mmkay

We’ll demystify Xdebug, how does it work, how to set it up for local/remote debugging and how to use handy features like conditional breakpoints (for example, recursion debugging).

P.S. Original song from South Park

Luka Mužinić: State in a stateless world

Have you ever heard terms like automata theory, Turing machines, and finite state machines? While they might sound too abstract or even out of place for web development, rest assured, they can be quite useful in your applications.

We will quickly cover some basics and then dive right into most popular PHP state machine libraries. After the talk, you will know benefits of using state machines and, most importantly, how and when to implement them.
