    PHPDX - Unblocking PHP applications with message queues

    Graybox

    Pizza, learning and a great time to network with the fabulous PHP Community!

    Message queuing allows applications to communicate by sending messages to each other. The message queue provides a temporary message storage when the destination program is busy or not connected. Join us as Caleb Tucker-Raymond takes us on an exploration of message queues. We'll learn both how to use them in a simple PHP web application, and how to test them.

    Code we will be using can be found at https://github.com/calebtr/queue-testing-demo

    PHPDX - Static Sites: Use Your Smarts to Build Something Dumb

    Graybox

    Pizza, learning and a great time to network with the fabulous PHP Community!

    Join us as Kurtis Holsapple shares about Static Sites.

    Let's build out a site with no serverside processing at all. Static sites are nothing more than static files put up on a server that doesn't need any serverside runtimes. That means that you can host your site on places like Github Pages, AWS S3, or any other cheap hosting options. We can still leverage our PHP knowledge to build cools sites that have good structure and lots of content. You can still create things like blogs, collections of data, product listings, and more.

    PHPDX - Up to my Eyeballs in Technical Debt!

    Graybox

    **PLEASE NOTE THE DAY HAS CHANGED. We will be meeting on a monday this month. There will still be pizza, learning and networking with the fabulous PHP Community!**

    Every decision we make in our projects has the potential to increase or reduce technical debt. While the only way to completely eliminate the debt is to never write any code, there are steps that we as engineers, project managers, and project stakeholders can take to mitigate our risk.

    This talk covers the concept of technical debt, its potential to devastate projects, and red flags that project teams can look for to reduce its impact before it spirals out of control.
