Composing PHP Applications with Middleware

Composing PHP Applications with Middleware - Josh Butts

This talk will cover middleware architecture concepts including a comparison of how middleware is being used in PHP versus other languages. We’ll look at how to leverage middleware concepts to build applications from scratch as well as combine off-the-shelf components using middleware as the glue. Of course, we’ll also look at some downright dirty tricks you that middleware lets you get away with as well!
