## Data structures in PHP

Can you imagine developing PHP applications without arrays? Me neither, since they are the only data structure available.
They are a jack of all trades. Need a queue? Use an array. Need a stack? Use an array. Need a …? Use an array.

This talk will try to look further. What are data structures exactly and why do we need to use them in our applications? And most important of all: what options do we have to implement them in PHP? Let’s try to answer those questions in this brief intro into PHP data structures.

### Who is Jens?

Jens is a Full-Stack(overflow) developer. He is using Laravel and Vue.js to build the next-generation financial reporting platform: BrightAnalytics.

He is mostly known for his charisma, his looks and stating false facts.

## Building a digital ID card for authentication

When we are asked to identify ourselves in the real world, we show our ID cards. We trust it because it is issued by the government. Can we build a digital ID card based on the same principes, that we can use to authenticate users in our applications instead of relying on cookies and sessions?

Spoiler alert; we’ll talk about micro services, cryptography, JSON Web Tokens and OAuth2.

### Who is Jens ?

Lead developer at Teamleader, open source contributor.
