LinuxChixer Sharon Levy presenting Zend Webinar on PHP Lambdas on March 29, 2012

Mar 24th, 2012 Posted in And You Did What? Where?, Sharing What Have I Learned | No Comments »

This year, to my great surprise, Zend has invited me to reprise the presentation I gave at ZendCon as a webinar. I am thrilled to have this opportunity although the thought of addressing an international audience is, frankly speaking, a bit daunting. But, sometimes a grrl just has to do, what a grrl has to do!

WEBINAR: The Truth About Lambdas and Closures in PHP
March 29, 2012: 9am PDT
One of PHP 5.3′s terrific features is the ability to use lambdas, a feature which will surely relegate PHP 5.0′s lambda-style in the guise of create_function() to the dust-bin of cyberspace. This presentation will focus on what exactly lambdas are as well as the difference between a lambda and a closure, or whether there is any given their implementation in PHP. In addition, we’ll have a look at improvements pertaining to closures in PHP 5.4. Far greater emphasis is on live code demonstrations as well as in-depth discussion about the code.

Presenters: Sharon Lee Levy & Kevin Schroeder

You may find that my presentation deviates from the dry fare that typically characterizes technical talks. My methods may be unconventional, but hopefully will aid in clarifying the subject of anonymous functions in PHP and at the same time, pique the interests of everyone, including women and girls so they may explore PHP and computer programming.

Neighboring exhibition booth, and Los Angeles area development and networking group Python Ladies, took this picture of our walking penguins at SCALE10x. Thanks and kudos to LinuxChix Los Angeles group member Betty for both original idea and the overall organization of ‘project inflatable’ for our LinuxChixLA booth’s popular give-aways.
