High-Speed Modern Web Apps with PHP & AMF

High-Speed Modern Web Apps with PHP & AMF

JSON has become the lingua-franca between web developers and APIs, but it has some critical limitations that stunt some possibilities of modern web development.

In this somewhat esoteric talk, I will discuss the possibility of using AMF - a binary data-interchange protocol - in web applications, using PHP & JavaScript. AMF allows for a wider array of data type encodings, circular references, and more. AMF has been used with Flash applications for years, is tried and true - and, as I will hopefully convince you, should be used in modern web applications.

Dougie Crockford, you're on.
