Talks on scaling!

Auto-scaling PHP Applications using Chef and AWS
   Andy Gale, Hello Future

Scaling at BaseKit
   Ade Slade, BaseKit

Scaling wild LAMP for managed hosting
   Clément Debiaune, Freelance

BaseKit have kindly offered to sponsor the event again, and have offered their office as the venue, as well as beer and pizza! Don't forget to check them out- and if you're looking, they are hiring.

Afterwards we'll probably go to the pub, somewhere on King Street tends to be the theme.

      Hey Adam, great! The next night is likely to be on the 12th March, I intend to announce it formally by the end of the week, and I am still looking for a 3rd speaker. Drop me a line at steve at stevelacey dot net.

      Hi Andy, Thanks for the talk. A question I forgot to ask is, what version of Linux do you use on Amazon, and how do you develop locally against that version of Linux?

      The context of this is that the most common version of Linux on Amazon is more than slightly bespoke, and so the environment is quite different from what you would have on local dev machine. cheers

      Ubuntu (or Debian when I can get away with it) with Vagrant locally and on AWS basically.

    Thanks to the organisers and speakers :) I really enjoyed the presentations last night. Each talk was enlightening in some way. I've also been informed that we NEED those beanbags you had in the office in our office. Oh and the ping pong table. (I'm looking into it :D )

    I'm Brazilian and living in Exeter/UK. The materials of the presentations will be available in group after event? I have many interest in scaling.
