Lecture: True Serverless or how to run PHP in the browser to document an open source project

How to build PHP in WebAssembly, how to use it and for what it is useful.

If you're an API Platform user, you're probably thinking, like many others, that documentation could be improved. That's just what I'm working on. And what could be better than interactive documentation where you can test the code directly?

The problem is that running PHP on the server just for testing purposes can quickly become expensive in terms of hosting... How about running PHP directly in the browser?

In this talk, I'll introduce you to WebAssembly, a technology that enables programs to be compiled to run in browsers. Next, we'll discover how to compile PHP into WebAssembly. And finally, we'll see how to run Symfony, API Platform or any other PHP project directly in the browser, without the need for a (PHP) server.
