    Oh, and we discussed version control. It seems everyone but me prefers Subversion. Further reading: http://www.codeforest.net/git-vs-svn and http://git-scm.com/course/svn.html

      I prefer GIT/Mercurial. I just wasn't there to defend myself.

      I use Git a lot, it's what we use exclusively at The Gig Bureau. Have used Mercurial for several personal projects but prefer Git.

    Great meetup! To recount:

    Apache mod_pagespeed: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/mod A great plugin that will drastically increase the efficiency of serving your site content. Unless it is a large highly dynamic site, in which case the amount of cache files it needs to continually clean up (GBs worth) might be big a problem. There is an nginx module in the works: https://github.com/pagespeed/ngx_pagespeed

    Amazon services: Overall good offerings, very quick and powerful provisioning, helps a lot with scaling out. Actual virtual machine and database performance is mediocre. Personally, I had major headaches with EC2 and elastic IP addresses. It seems unanimous that their support is hit or miss across the board. Mostly miss.

    Lastly, Fabri is famous for his pure PHP web server: http://www.phpclasses.org/package/4084-PHP-Web-server-in-pure-PHP.html

      I took a look at my old class... I would definitely rewrite it to make it a bit more secure and speed it up a bit. lots of code can be optimized !

    I can say a few words about Google mod_pagespeed (Pro and Cons and what does it do).

    Been working on some heavy revision control projects lately, any interest in a 10-15minute primer (covering some history, options, and why distributed revision is the one ring to rule them all)?

      I am somewhat interested in revision control and what you use, it was discussed in a previous meeting that most of us are using GitHub and SVN

    First, it's Jason. Second, it's Symfony. Third, there is a chance that I can't present or even show. I do have my capstone final defense the very next day after all.

      Jason, are you willing to do a presentation next month ?

    We'll have pizza and pop delivered but I'm not able to make a beer run. BYOB.
