Presented at Codeconnexx 2012. From the official conference description at codeconnexx.com In the past few years, the PHP Zeitgeist seems like it's been moving in the Neil Peart direction. Lots of work by lots of smart people is going into complex, verbose solutions. Lots of files, lots of nested directories, and lots of rules. No thanks. So I wrote the MicroPHP Manifesto: 1. I am a PHP developer 2. I like building small things 3. I want less code, not more 4. I like simple, readable code Contrary to popular belief, you can still kick ass with PHP using simple, readable code that avoids over-engineering and excessive abstraction. We'll talk about how to make that happen with lightweight "micro-frameworks" and single-task, no-dependency libraries.
