Traits were introduced all the way back in version 5.4 and added a pretty powerful option to the developer’s tool belt. However, it seems as if very few people really understand them. As a result, most people just avoid them. In this talk, we will go over some of the ways that traits can be utilized to make your job easier and your code leaner, as well as some of the pitfalls to avoid.
