– It's in the dot


Nov 10, 2011 presenting at PHP Tour 2011

We'll be presenting a session at PHP Tour 2011 in Lille, France on Nov 25, 2011. The talk is titled 'Caching and tuning fun for high scalability' and will be presented by Wim Godden.

The talk is a shortened version of the tutorial we presented at several conferences and will discuss the following topics (and a lot more) :

- General introduction into caching (what it is, what types of caching techniques there are, etc.)
- Some common caching implementations (the good, the bad and the ugly)
- How to keep your site scalable by caching
- How to bring down your site (how NOT to cache !) - i.e. commonly used techniques that lead to disaster
- Caching outside the box
- Spread, don't duplicate
- Scalable alternatives to LAMMP (no, not a typo !)
- Applying Varnish
- Backend done, let's go frontend !
- Tuning quickies
