The Southeast's premier PHP community

May 2007 Meeting

When: Thursday, May 3, 2007 — 7pm-9pm
Where: Consulate General of Canada

Presentation: Give Your Site a Boost With memcached

Ben Ramsey will follow-up our recent discussions on scalability with a practical, hands-on approach to implementing the memcache daemon and using PHP to interface with it. He will provide plenty of ready-to-use code samples.

Today’s high-traffic websites implement caching techniques that cut down data processing to increase speed of content delivery. Memcached provides one of the fastest and easiest-to-use caching servers. This talk will cover memcached and the PECL memcache extension from setting up a memcached server to using it to provide a variety of caching solutions for data and sessions.

Mini-Series: PHP IDEs

We will showcase the features of another IDE for developing PHP applications. TBD.

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.
