Dublin PHP Meetup - April 2014

We’re back again with the second meetup of the year! This month we have two great speakers lined up.

Jonathan Cremin, @Kudoz – Software Engineer at Engine Yard

Front-end web performance is important

Front-end web performance is important. Sometimes it takes being on holidays in Australia, having to use WiFi at a conference or bad 3G before you notice how much of the web is *really* slow for a huge amount of people.

We should be doing everything we can to improve the experience, and the front-end is full of low hanging fruit.

Iarfhlaith Kelly, @Iarfhlaith – CEO at Kitman Labs

Product Strategies, Before and After Launch

Ever had a brilliant app or startup idea? Something you just knew would be an instant hit. You start building. You’re the master of your own universe. You launch with an early version – the minimum desirable experience, but you still have plenty of work to do to get the product where it needs to be. You start getting users, great! But naturally, they begin sending you feedback and suggestions for improvement. This is where the challenge is. How do you compromise between your own vision for the product and what your users are asking for?

In this talk, Iarfhlaith will share his experiences balancing a planned product roadmap with the continuous flow of user requests. See what tools and techniques are available to help negotiate you through this common issue”.

What if I’m hungry and thirsty? 

Thanks to our sponsors Engine Yard and New Relic we’ll have beer and pizza on the night.

On the house.
