Presentation: Designing for Scalability

This month, Brian DeShong is visiting Atlanta and will continue our scalability discussions with his “Designing for Scalability” presentation. Here’s Brian’s description of the presentation:

I’ll focus on what I believe to be the three cornerstones for scaling an application: caching, denormalization of data, and queues/batch jobs. I’ll be presenting some basic examples of each in order to illustrate why these are good practices, and how they lead to a site that both performs and scales well. Designing an application from the start so that it both performs and scales well is a great practice, of course.

Mini-Series: PHP IDEs

Kevin Roberts will also kick off a new mini-series reviewing various PHP IDEs with his demo of MPSoftware’s PHP Designer.

Lightning Talks

We’ll round out the meeting with a couple of lightning talks from anyone who’d like to share. Either be prepared with a 3-5 minute presentation, or simply stand up and talk for a few minutes about anything you wish related to PHP or related technologies.

This month, our meeting takes place at Schematic at the Promenade II (across the street from the Consulate General of Canada at 100 Colony Square) in Midtown Atlanta (at the corner of Peachtree and 15th Streets).
