Scaling PHP with Shapeways

PHP is a very versatile programming language that most engineers have used at one point or another.  It is known for getting the job done, and has well formed libraries to pull from.  

We are excited to have our first PHP focused event with a technical talk from Shapeways VP of Engineering on scaling up a project with PHP and be able to add more engineers with ease.



Josh Levine, VP of Engineering at Shapeways


Talk Title:  Code Patterns, Paradigms, and Governance

Talk Abstract:  How to ensure you can continue to add engineers to your PHP project.

About Josh:  Josh is creating the future of how things get made at Shapeways.  He faces many cool technical challenges and needs more team members to help Shapeways win.

    Josh (Shapeways) did a great job presenting methods used to provide huge performance enhancements when coding w/PHP banging a MySQL db. Through the use of Patterns, Paradigms and Governance, Shapeways effectively manages cohesive software initiatives using a global SW workforce effectively enhancing user experience and back-end functionality and manageability. Impressive guy (Josh) and an impressive company focussed on 3D printing, an explosive growth area with extraordinarily far reaching, totally disruptive technology poised to change virtually "everything" (think plastics in the 50's - 70's). Shapeways ( is positioned on the forefront!
