September 9th - 'Symfony2'­ and 'Technical Decision Making'

AKA Unified Diff 3.1, this will be our second meetup in Porter's - having the cinema screen, good beer, friendly staff and pizza available went down very well with us so we're back!

If you'd like to do a 5-minute lightning talk, please get in touch!

Talks from:

Craig Marvelley - Symfony2

The platform manages the education and professional progression of over a million people in Wales. When challenged with upgrading its ageing application stack to suit modern standards, we devised a solution with Symfony2 at its core. In this talk I'll discuss how the new stack was implemented, focussing on how we took advantage of Symfony2's first-class support for reverse-proxy Varnish to phase the deployment of the new system and improve performance by a significant amount. I'll also talk about the API we created to bridge its SQL Server / MySQL database platforms, and how Symfony2 was used to provide a single-sign-on solution across all of its web applications.

Paul Preece - "Picking the right horse"

An opinionated view on the technical decisions made before, during and after the product lifecycle. Also pictures of horses.
