The Stateful ElePHPant

The talk will cover exactly what the state pattern is and how it's used in a game. Then we'll be discovering what this can do for us in the world of web applications. Following that we'll take a brief look at the state machine to see how it's different from the pattern and why it's useful to us. We’ll put theory into practice throughout the talk by continuously showing examples. And we’ll even include some live coding.

I'm interested in anything code related and have been exploring the community since 2013. I'm eager to learn more and ambitious about helping other developers. I've been speaking since 2014 and I love sharing knowledge, entertaining and meeting people I can learn from. I've had a fair amount of mentors and I'm currently focusing on taking on the mentor role myself so I can evaluate my own knowledge.
