PLUG Advanced Topics: Roundtable: Web serving in the post-LAMP era
Free Geek

This month's meeting will be a roundtable discussion about modern web serving.

The era gave way to LAMP and we're now onto the next generation:

  • node.js and NoSQL make LAMP overkill for many situations

  • AJAX/JavaScript are moving much application logic to the browser

  • Apache is giving way to lighttpd, node.js, nginx and others

  • We've gone from 9" Mac support to 1024 X 768 and now to 4" phones

  • URL Shorteners. Who would have thought?

  • Users now routinely block ads, scripting and Flash

  • Apple has declared war on Flash!

  • HTML 5 and CSS 3 are starting to appear in the wild

  • Security is finally coming first, not last

How have these factors changed the way you serve web content?

Are the fundamental problems being solved and making your job easier?

Please share your experiences at this roundtable and bring your questions.

When: Tuesday, September 20th, 7PM

Where: Free Geek: 1731 SE 10th Avenue, not far from the Lucky Lab

Food and Drink: Bring your own, consider Lucky Lab take-out
