PHP and Standards

The PHP FIG is a group established in 2010 with the aim of putting together a set of best practices for PHP apps to follow. Four PSRs have been accepted and a few proposals are currently under discussion. These PSRs are designed to make it easier for people to build packages that work with each other by providing interfaces that they can implement without enforcing an implementation. This talk will cover the existing PSRs and the ones that are under consideration, and will then take a brief look at the de facto standards that people use to fulfil the requirements of each PSR
