What’s new in PHP 8.0

During this presentation, we are going to look at the new features that
were introduced in PHP 8.0. Join me to have a look at how the type
system is strengthened with union types, Attributes, the JIT engine, and
syntax improvements such as Constructor Property Promotion, and other new smaller features.

At the end you will have a good understand about all the new and
