PHP Town Hall

Phil, Ben and a super-star guest answer questions and talk about current events in the PHP world.

Episode 24: But Is It Web Scale?

This week Ben Edmunds calls in from Portland and Phil Sturgeon calls in from THE FUTURE. They are joined by Steve Corona to discuss Scaling PHP.

Most of this conversation centers around Phil and Ben’s horrible facial hair with a few questions thrown Steve’s way to educate us on getting the most out of your LAMP stack. The main takeaways are to stop using Apache and to start using Postgres.

Go buy Steve’s book Scaling PHP if you want to be Web Scale.
