Episode #2012-26 Thijs Feryn's "Scalability Issues Cure First, Prevent Later"
January 14, 2013 @ 12:15:00

The DPC Radio site has posted their latest recoding from last year's Dutch PHP Conference (2012) with Thijs Feryn's talk Scalability Issues: Cure First, Prevent Later.

The "it works on my machine" mentality has resulted in numerous face palm moments. This is even more painful when a your app is under heavy load due to a marketing campaign. With some minimal code changes and some smart utilities, you can maximize your scalability and performance. Keywords: Varnish, PHP-FPM, Nginx, APC, CDN, Gearman, Memcached and a proper server setup. I'll show you how you can make a slow app with a crappy code base go mighty fast on one and even multiple servers. The focus of this talk is to cure first and eventually learn and prevent.

Episode #2012-16 - Travis CI - Distributed CI for the Masses
November 21, 2012 @ 09:36:12

DPCRadio (recordings of the sessions at this year's Dutch PHP Conference) has posted its latest episode - a recording of Josh Kalderimis' talk Travis CI - Distributed CI for the Masses!.

Continuous Integration has typically been a practice only performed by companies who want that piece of mind for their client software, but does it need to be like this? Travis CI is a continuous integration service for the open source community. We make testing OS projects dead simple and fun. But most importantly, we help improve code quality for large projects like Doctrine2 and symfony, to smaller libraries like FOSRest. The vision behind Travis CI is to become for builds what PEAR is for distributing libraries. In this talk Josh, one of the core members of the Travis CI team, will introduce you to the vision behind Travis, the how it is implemented, and why it matters to everyone in the OS community.

Episode #2012-27 - Elizabeth Smith's "SPL in the Wild"
November 12, 2012 @ 12:53:38

The Dutch PHP Conference has posted their latest podcast in their DPCRadio series as recorded at this year's Dutch PHP Conference - Elizabeth Smith's SPL in the Wild:

The standard PHP library (SPL) is growing in both maturity and use. But a lot of developers still aren't aware of the tools in SPL or simply haven't seen good examples of how to use the code. From interfaces to an autoload stack to classes that make objects act like arrays, there are tools to make every application leaner and faster, or simply more clever. Using live projects from github, take a look at the good, bad, and the ugly of SPL usage in PHP development.
