    I had a great time tonight.

    It's always fun to see what people are working on, and the after the meeting meeting grabbing a drink and drilling folks is a great time too!

    I would like to present about my project 'KindleSmith' which I wrote entirely with PHP and mySQL. Here's a preview of what it does -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5gJvfLQsUo

    I know this is super late, but if possible, I'd like to talk about creating disposable development environments with Vagrant ( http://vagrantup.com ). Thanks.

    PHP is used in websites that just collect a small amount of information. There are other websites like Etsy or perhaps even HeathCare.gov that manage a very complex environment. When thinking about a new site, what do you do to avoid having to start over again as the scope expands as typically happens if your initial efforts are a success. This is not a 15 min topic. Anyone interested on collaborating on developing some guidelines?

    • Jonathan B.

      I agree with Cesar and I'd love to chat about this too. There's so much one can do to scale PHP (or really any other language) ... from simple load balancing to using HHVM as the PHP interpreter, et cetera. Sometimes, it could be something as simple as finding ways to speed up how content is served ... for example, using Nginx as a reverse proxy to an httpd cluster and also serving all static content via Nginx, only proxying to Apache for dynamic content. In fact, for the websites and apps most of us create, some of these techniques are usually enough. You really should only start worrying about scaling issues when you have them and not optimize pre-maturely. Anyhow, I'd love to continue chatting about this tomorrow :) .

      There is also Zephir (http://zephir-lang.co...­). Looks like an interesting project.

    I’m looking forward to the talks. Thanks Boston PHP for another great event.

    Inspiring. I live in WordPress and want to hone my PHP skills.

  • Jesse B.

    I'm really looking forward to these talks, and not just because I get to share what I've been working on ;-)

    I'm always looking for new toys or methods to tackle a problem. Even if I don't integrate everything that I learn about from these meetings, it's great to be exposed to new idea's and tools!

    Very exciting!!!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
