virtPHP: One Box, Multiple Elephpants

Get to the know the ins and outs of virtPHP. virtPHP is a shell tool that allows you to create multiple virtual environments for PHP applications on one system, each with unique PHP configurations, global Composer packages, PEAR packages, and PECL extensions, along with the ability to connect environments to other PHP builds located on your system. Think Python’s virtualenv for PHP.

In this talk, co-creator Ben Ramsey will introduce virtPHP and explain how it can benefit any PHP developer’s workflow. We’ll also dive into the internals of virtPHP to see how it creates self-contained virtual environments. Finally, we’ll discuss the project roadmap and how you can help.
