It's that time of the year again - for cliche Turkey jokes.  So what's
happens when your server just can't handle the load? You cache it somewhere
else, of course! With performance on our mind from last month's
presentation, we're pleased to welcome Jorge Lopez to speak on the art and
science of stuffing stuff you need to somewhere else (ie, caching).

When scaling a web site from a few users to millions, the first pain point
is almost always the database. Query optimizations only go so far,
eventually data can no longer be retrieved from the database fast enough to
accommodate the influx of client requests. This is the point where caching
comes in to play.

This presentation covers all the layers of a LAMP stack where caching can be
utilized to greatly increase the capacity of a site. Subjects such as the
utilization of CDNs, template/output cache, key/value stores, and shared
memory (APC) will be covered. I discuss lessons learned from working at
various companies and giving real world examples (and numbers) as well as a
guide to figuring which parts of a site should be cached first.

Jorge Lopez is a software engineer, cat lover, and avid PHP user since '98.
