So you built a successful app. The next step is “scale”. But what you really mean is speed – Ludicrous Speed. Let’s explore a making super fast app build in native PHP (no frameworks) running atop nginx, and using Redis as our runtime database. We’ll take a peak at how on the surface this may be a PHP app. Yet, underneath it’s a high-performance, horizontally scalable app.

To quote another Mel Brooks movie: "My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives."

Great talk!

It's always fascinating to see a live demo go this good! Great talk overal!

Great talk with live demo done well.

Great walk-through! Demonstrating the benchmarks is cool to see. Although I might skip doing so many of them in the demo, and talk more about alternatives and tool comparisons.

Great talk, with good ideas on using siege to test a PHP app.

Great session! Love the live demo and the build up from slow results to ludicrous performance outcomes. Great addition to put the stats in the end of your talk!

Demo that did not blew up! Great talk, super nice tips, very well explained.
