Thijs Feryn:

Sep 28, 2015 @ 11:16:20

Thijs Feryn has a post to his site sharing a video interview with Kristof De Jaeger talking about Drupalcon and Drupal 8 in general. Kristof is a well-known member of the Drupal community and has spoken at several events, including this year's Drupalcon Barcelona 2015.

Last week I had the privilege to chat with Kristof De Jaeger (AKA @swentel on Twitter) at Drupalcon in Barcelona. I did an interview with him and we talked about a bunch of things, all of which are somewhat Drupal related.

They talk about Drupal 8, Drupalcon and the community, "Headless Drupal" and Kristof’s role in the community. You can walk the video of the interview through the in-page video player or you can just get the audio over on Soundcloud.

Episode #2012-26: Thijs Feryn's "Scalability Issues: Cure First, Prevent Later"
Jan 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.

You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page player or by downloading the full mp3. You can also subscribe to their feed to get the latest podcasts episodes as they're released.
