PHP - Architecting and Profiling for performance

Accepted Session
Long form
Scheduled: Thursday, June 18, 2009 from 1:45 – 3:30pm in Hawthorne


A look at efficient PHP development through proper architecture and profiling tools.


My yearly talk on architecting, profiling and optimizing web applications. It primarily focuses on applications written in PHP although many of the observations really apply to applications written in any language.

I sometimes tack XSS and security onto the end of this talk. I could also do that as a separate talk if there is interest. My conference party trick of finding XSS holes in the conference site first, then in sites brave audience members offer up, is always a lot of fun.

Speaking experience
