Talk: Profiling PHP, A dive into your application

Your application needs to be fast nowadays in order to stand out from the crowd. Study has shown that application performance has a psychological effect on customer satisfaction. Profiling can give you more insight in how your application really works internally. It gives you an overview of where the resource bottlenecks in your application reside. In this talk, I am going to give an overview of some profiling methods that exist today, and where I think we should be heading. After this talk, you will be able to use some basic profiling tricks to analyse the performance constraints in your application.

Speaker: Dennis de Greef 
Dennis de Greef is a software engineer at TransIP, primarily working on the backend of the VPS platform. His current interests in software engineering are BDD, DDD and software metrics and he loves the thin line between software engineering and infrastructure automation. He also loves conversations about why we do things the way we do, so we don’t preach solutions for problems we long forgot.

We got some awesome stuff to give away this month, so make sure you attend another awesome meetup!

This month we will be hosted by two awesome companies, SEOshop and Mollie will be teaming up to give us an excellent night.

    Really enjoyed the work and effort put out by Mollie and SEOshop. Handling special dietary need as well as adding the nice touch of the Red Bulls. Loved the space and hope we can come back more times.

    First off, again thanks to Herberto for the hospitality beforehand!

    The talk was really good for a first run! Dennis knew his way around the profiling tools. Too bad it felt a little rushed, and would have liked to go deeper in the various tools and expanded a bit on the example usecases. I will however look into the mentioned github repo to see whats inside :)

    Thanks to SEOshop/Mollie for an excellent space and food! Great pizza's, enough beer for and British football team and great crowd!

    All in all: another successful evening!

    Unfortunately I'm allergic to tomatoes (and tomato sauce) :(. Will there be something else to eat besides the usual pizza with lots of tomato sauce?

      Marissa, your wishes have been granted, a tuna pizza with creme fraîche, it is! :)

  • Robin S.

    Looking forward to this edition!

    A small question: will the venue be open a bit early this time? I'd like to attend another online meetup ( starting at 18 (until 18.45) but i'd hate to be late for AmsterdamPHP

    I know this is a bold question, but hey, #durftevragen / #daretoask
