Coding in a scalable environment
Talk by Bram Pieters (1 hour)
He will cover the most important do's and don'ts of designing an application to run in scalable environments: storage, database choices, architecture, session management, caching, security and performance... He will also analyse what platforms like Heroku and VicThorious can do for you to scale up your application when the right moment comes.
Beyond PHP : it's not (just) about the code!
Talk by Wim Godden (1 hour)
Most PHP developers focus on writing code. But creating Web applications is about much more than just writing PHP. Take a step outside the PHP cocoon and into the big PHP ecosphere to find out how small code changes can make a world of difference on servers and network. This talk is an eye-opener for developers who spend over 80% of their time coding, debugging and testing.
