Talk: Advanced Performance & Scalability for PHP Developers
Through both theoretical principles and practical real-world examples, Alain examines what performance and scalability mean from a server-side development perspective and how you can optimize for them.
In this talk, he covers basic mechanisms like profiling, deferred processing and caching first to make sure we got the big chunks out of the way.
Then we’ll dive deeper into code that simply needs to run faster or in a more scalable way, covering things such as loop optimization, static data, opcaches and other mysterious concepts.
