Our Senior Software Architect David Carr has recently attended the latest PHP UK Conference. A 3-day event including a Workshop, where web developers specialising in PHP meet annually to attend talks, network and discover the latest innovations in programming.
David has attended the PHP UK conference for the past 4 years has come away each year armed with highly useful knowledge that he has been eager to put into practice into The One Point products.
The conference never fails to be a fantastic source of information, from this year's conference I have come away with a deeper knowledge of real-time notifications with webhooks. This allows web application to alert the user of appointments and reminders that are due the moment that they occur. I also have a far better appreciation of creating chat bots for instance on Facebook messenger a customer could ask for support which could automatically generate a support ticket or act as a first level support.
