brumPHP August: Introduction to Serverless PHP
Welcome to brumPHP August! This month we have Rob Allen talking us through Serverless. This month we've got one free ticket to give away at the start of the event to attend Symfony's annual UK Conference in London on September 27-28, as well as the usual free Jetbrains license. We are also currently pioneering live streaming of the event, plus archiving the talk for playback, courtesy of Civico's Birmingham-based streaming platform. You can access the link and archives at We have drinks and pizza, so hope to see you there! ------------------------------------------------------------- Introduction to Serverless PHP ------------------------------------------------------------- APIs and microservices are how we build modern web applications and serverless technologies make this easy. This session will show you how serverless applications are built and how you can leverage your PHP skills to build APIs of all shapes and sizes. We will cover how to use your current knowledge to build applications in PHP within Apache OpenWhisk, leveraging the API Gateway to build robust APIs quickly and easily. By the end of the session, you'll be well placed to design and build your own microservices that take full advantage of the power of serverless technologies. Me: Rob Allen is a software consultant and developer with many years experience and writes code in PHP, Swift and other interesting languages. He leads Slim Framework's development team and contributes to Apache OpenWhisk and other open source projects. Rob is a published author and based in the UK where he runs, focussing on API development, training and consultancy. In his spare time, Rob blogs at and can often be seen with a camera in his hand.
