Scaling PHP in the Cloud

HasGeek’s seventh event, focusing on the challenges of scaling from single to multi-server deployments for PHP-based websites.

Logo

PHP is today the world’s most popular open source web development language. It is used by millions of websites, most often via applications like WordPress and Drupal. Deploying a PHP website is straightforward and supported by nearly every web hosting provider.

There are limits to how much load a single web server can take though. For your website to scale, you will sooner or later need to a transition to a multi-server deployment, and this can be hard. It requires thinking about web development in entirely new ways.

The exciting new world of cloud computing promises to make all this much better. “Cloud computing” is an umbrella term for a range of tools and techniques that make scalability possible. Scaling PHP in the Cloud is a one day conference on what it takes to make the leap from single server to multi-server deployments, and of making sense of the new world beyond.

Hashtag: #phpcloud

Sessions are for 45 minutes each (30 talking + 15 Q&A). If you'd like to do a smaller session, please indicate so in the description.
