Recently PHP core developers have been discussing if they should make async and await reserved keywords just in case future PHP versions implement asynchronous programming support similar to Facebook Hack and future EcmaScript/JavaScript versions.

This was one the main topics commented by Manuel Lemos and Arturs Sosins in the episode 64 of the Lately in PHP podcast.

They also discussed the pros and cons in terms of performance of using native prepared queries with PDO, adding enum data types to PHP 7.x, having class templates similar to C++ or Java generics, among other interesting PHP topics.

Listen to the podcast, or watch the hangout video to learn more about these interesting PHP topics.
