Presentation: Robust Batch Processing with PHP

Brian DeShong will present on robust batch processing with PHP, a talk he will also give in May at php|tek in Chicago.

Offline processing is a common practice used in building scalable web applications. Dedicating machines to perform expensive processes, such as video transcoding, image transformation, and sending of emails, helps keep front end webserver resources available to serve requests.

How do you make developers aware of problems with these processes? How do you ensure that your batch processing system can scale to multiple machines? How do you handle failure in a responsible manner? Brian will use real-world examples while illustrating how to build a robust batch processing system.

Mini-Series: PHP IDEs

Alex Peterson will present the Eclipse IDE and the PHP plugin for Eclipse.
