This event is at the same venue in the same weekend as and, a FREE conference in our own back yard!


Once in a while you come across a piece of code where you can see some benefit, but at the same time you feel that maybe - just maybe - it takes abstraction just a little bit too far. I mean, abstracting your filesystem, really??

But I saw this talk at PHPBenelux, and Frank really does make you realize how much work this simple abstraction will save you. And I must stop reinventing the wheel :-)

Talk:  Filesystem Abstraction with Flysystem

In almost all of the applications we create in our day to day lives we work with filesystems. These days it's not just our local filesystem anymore. It's AWS S3, Dropbox, (S)FTP, or any other cloud filesystem provider. They all have their pros and cons. In this talk we’ll go into several aspects of choosing and working with filesystems and how Flysystem helps you out in this process.
