PHP projects beyond the LAMP stack
For people in open source, LAMP is a very common acronym. But as your site or application gets more popular, you'll notice that your stack needs more than just Apache, MySQL and just PHP: there are more pieces to the puzzle. This talk will feature a bunch of "new" components that are used by modern day applications at scale. Components like: Nginx, Varnish, ElasticSearch, Redis, RabbitMQ, NodeJS, Go, HHVM and many more. The end goal is to assemble a proof of concept that is fast, scalable, highly available and modular. We'll still use PHP, but only where it makes sense.
