Traditionally in PHP, each HTTP request is processed by a new instance of an application. This "shared nothing" architecture provides crucial simplicity, security and stability. However, we can keep Symfony applications alive between requests and vastly improve their performance. Wait a minute before charging off! When using PHP in this way we have to pay careful attention to session handling, application state and memory leaks. This talk will demonstrate how to develop and configure Symfony applications for this purpose.

Brillant talk, really liked that you showed phppm and phpfastcgi and a Lot of pitfalls. I live the slide with the C Code, Great example.

Great idea of finally having proper server, that is hard to apply now because of the nature of the language. Such talks make people think in a new way.

Really nice talk, awesome analogy. I only missed the comparison with a standard Symfony app.

The memory leak topic could have a dedicated talk by itself. For those interested by memory leaks I recommend to look at and

Please English speakers, just slow down a tiny bit for non native :)
