SydPHP April 2012 Meetup

During April we will add on to the introductory information from the March meetup, and go through the installation process of Nginx and PHP-FPM to setup your own local development environment. Don't worry if you have trouble following along, we will have a completed environment that you can take home and use at the end of the night!

During this meetup you'll setup an environment for local development, and be able to learn some basics of PHP to test your environment is setup and ready to go.

In order to provide you with a comparison with other hosting platforms and solutions, we will briefly review performance and benchmarking tools that you can use to compare platforms and code.

    Nice after beers and talk about interesting technologies but the topic "back to the basics" was not really something where you would expect an introduction to PHP class building. Overall interesting was the sandbox setup on a VM on VirtualBox from Oracle.

    What is the user name and password for the VM image? I've tried sydphp/password, but it was not accepted ... Thanks for info.

    I liked both talks. The first talk showed the many modules and components that can be loaded for a PHP deployment - good! Also, introduced the factors involved in balancing web traffic - fascinating! but difficult to understand. I was very interested in this but needed bit more explanation to gain insight - great topic. The second talk was also good because it was aimed at the newer (hobby) users. I was pleasantly surprised to see a few people who didn't understand objects and that shows there is an audience for this type of talk. The short time length was good also, because there are less beginners than advanced members. Finally, I like the code execute, especially if it is simplified (clean code). If I look at "live site" code, it is complicated. Be it an advanced or basic topic, simplified code is more beautiful and that is why this group is so good because it can forum stuff that isn't "production" level. Hobbyist programmers don't have the daily exposure to complexity. Good meetup

    I got a lot out of it. Plenty of opportunities to ask questions so I could get informative answers about all things PHP.

    Being brand new to PHP, I didn't get some of the presentations but everyone I spoke to was very friendly and willing to share their knowledge to help me. Definitely worthwhile to attend.
