To mark the occasion, we asked four PHP experts and International PHP Conference 2019/2020 speakers what role PHP plays for them today. According to many statistics PHP is on the way down – but our experts disagree.
In this talk and demo, Ben will show how implementing an identity provider and using OAuth and OpenID Connect can allow you to ramp up your prototypes and MVPs with more ease and to concentrate on the core purpose of the APIs , rather than the layers of security that are a must in today’s digital world.
DDEV-Local developed by DRUD Technology LLC is a great solution to simplify and unify the entire local PHP development environment in teams, agencies, and communities.
