In this talk "What's New in PHP 7 and what to expect in PHP 7.1", Dan's going to show how Symfony runs quicker in PHP 7, things to watch out for when upgrading (including with Doctrine), how you can make your code more reliable with the new features, and then give a brief overview of new features coming later this year.
Inviqa will sponsor drink for this meetup.
