Talk: The Big why Equal doesn't Equal Quiz 
by Juliette Reinders Folmer

We all compare and test data on nearly every other line in our code, be it input validation, an if-statement, a switch or determining what to display and how. So of course we are all experts on how to do these tests and comparisons…. Or are we? Come and join in on the Big "Why equal doesn't equal" Quiz and show us whether you are an expert or a n00b in disguise... !

As she herself would put it 'It is more fun than Sudoku, and just as challenging to get it right'.

Juliette is a long-standing member of PHPWomen which helped her immensely to find her feet in the PHP world. She is ZCE, actively contributes to a number of open source projects, has published several articles and speaks at conferences when given the chance.
