Speeding up your PHP Application

Accepted Session
Long Form
Scheduled: Thursday, June 3, 2010 from 10:00 – 11:45am in St. Johns


Is your Wordpress site too slow? What's this HipHop PHP thing? How do I write really fast PHP apps? Drop by to get the answers to these questions.


There has been a lot of interest in PHP performance lately, spurred by
Facebook’s HipHop PHP announcement in February. Most people don’t know
how fast their site is and will make uninformed architecture decisions or
spend time optimizing the wrong things based mostly on myths and innuendo.
This talk will try to get you started down the path of a systematic
approach to benchmarking, profiling and optimizing your entire web site.

For those of you who were at my performance talk last year, consider this part 2 of that talk with new deep-dives into Wordpress and HipHop PHP.
