Jason will talk about PHP on the command line. How to execute scripts from the terminal, how the command line environment differs from a web environment.
Also, a tour of command line options, like -a.
Long Running Processes
Sure, Tim may not look like he would know anything related to running for extended periods of time - but it turns out, long running processes don't require much extra physical exertion.
How do you handle things that take time, like processing files, or sending large emails? How to handle processes that happen over time, like sending out scheduled alerts? Explore when to, how to, and when not to use cron, message queues, and daemons.
Make sure you RSVP - and we'll make sure there's some kind of food (okay, about a 98% chance it'll be Pizza) at the Meetup.
