Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to internationalize your web site or application into four languages, one of which is ideographic. Whether you’re using PHP 5 or 6, the challenge is formidable. How do you do this with minimal effort, best performance, and flexibility to add more languages in the future?
This session will cover several approaches to this problem, focusing on utilizing the new intl extension as well as other open source tools. Warning: some live translations may be performed for the audience!

Recently software architect at AppDynamics and a founding member of Analog Co-op. Previously, I was Open Source Fellow at Digg and a platform engineer at Yahoo. As a core developer of PHP and a member of the PHP Group, I helped curate development of the world’s most popular web development language. Along the way, I started PHP-GTK, helped create Smarty, co-wrote PHP Developer’s Cookbook, and architected Unicode support that would have been in PHP 6.
