Brian Deshong:
Top Ten List + CoderFaire Atlanta 2013
April 12, 2013 @ 12:27:50

Brian Deshong has a new post to his site sharing some of the content (videos) from his upcoming CoderFaire Atlanta (April 20th) talk about web application performance that he's learned over his years in development.

Back in March, I gave a new talk at Atlanta PHP: "Top Ten List: PHP and Web Application Performance". This talk is a culmination of my ~14 years of experience primarily as a web application developer, but also as a systems administrator / DevOps-type. After working with PHP and web applications for so many years, I have amassed quite a few tricks for squeezing maximum performance out of web applications, PHP or otherwise.

The tips are presented by various people from around the web development (and PHP) community and relate to things like:

  • Realpath cache settings
  • Using offline processing
  • Optimized queries
  • Gzipping responses
  • Caching everything
  • Using a content delivery network

If you'd like to see Brian present the full talk, there's still time to get your ticket for CoderFaire - they're only $50 USD for the two day event.

Call for Papers (Nearing End) & a Special Training Offer
June 21, 2007 @ 12:11:00

php|architect has two new posts concerning their upcoming php|works conference (in Atlanta, Sept 13-14th) - cone concerning the Call for Papers and the other about a special offer when you register for the conference.

First, the Call for Papers reminder:

There is only one week left for the Call for Papers period for our great upcoming conference php|works 2006. [...] If you have a good idea for a talk, we'd love to hear from you before the Call for Papers is over on June 27th. We offer a great compensation package for speakers that includes a stipend for each talk or tutorial given, as well as an allowance for most travel expenses. We're looking forward to receiving your proposals!

And the special training offer:

Get a free training course valued at $769 when you sign up for a php|works full package. Hurry-space is limited! [...] it's next-to-impossible to come up with a good PHP course that can take place in a single day, both because of the great number of topics to cover and because there is only so much that a person can cram in a single day.

Luckily, we have a solution! For a limited time, we are giving every php|works attendee access to one of our popular training courses free when they sign up for a full conference package!

To get more information on this deal, check out this page on the php|architect site. For more information on the conference, check out its site for location details and to get registered today!
