Alexander Oloo ( will be presenting

PCP ( is a drop in replacement for
PHP-FPM that lets you build sites in Clojure with no fuss. We’ll chat
about the good, the bad and the ugly of making native binaries using
graal, the evils of reflection and of course why PHP is awesome.

Alex is an engineer by trade. A designer by necessity. And a jack of
all trades for fun. He’s been writing code for almost a decade. From
Assembly to C and PHP to Node. Alex’s passion is debugging systems,
code, and people. Alex currently works a Design Director with the most
awesome bunch humans at Absa and dabbles in the startup life. Oh, and
he writes Clojure. Lots of it.
