Developing software in the Real World

HTTP, PSR-7 and MiddlewarePresented at Day Camp 4 Developers, April 2016

PSR-7 is the new standard for handling HTTP requests and responses in PHP. In this session we’ll examine what this means for our applications now and in the future. By adopting this common interface our existing component frameworks will become even more interoperable and enable us to develop with more shared libraries between applications. Along with standard HTTP messaging formats comes the concept of middleware – separate components operating on requests and responses on the way in and out of the application – so we’ll discuss this too. If you want to see how PHP applications will be built in the future, this session is for you.
