IPC Spring 2013: Ein Rückblick, ein Ausblick

Agile Methoden, Responsive Design und jede Menge JavaScript standen im Mittelpunkt der diesjährigen International PHP Conference Spring 2013. Damit hofften die Veranstalter auf rund  900 Teilnehmer – ganz so viele werden es zwar nicht gewesen sein, aber alles in allem hat das Programmkomitee ein solides und gut betreutes Event auf die Beine gestellt. Für Mayflower als Aussteller und unsere Speaker machte die IPC mit überraschend viel Feedback und Networking dabei einen mehr als guten Eindruck – für Mayflower als Teilnehmer und Konferenzbesucher ließ sie aber auch wichtige programmatische Details vermissen.

Ein kleiner Rück- und Ausblick auf das „Familientreffen“ der PHP- und Webentwickler-Szene.

IPC Spring Edition 2012: Der Versuch einer Zusammenfassung, stattdessen aber kunterbuntes Allerlei

Ursprünglich dachte ich, der Bericht wäre nur für unser internes Blog geeignet, da er zu viel eigene Meinung enthält. :) Aber Johann meinte „Wieso, ist doch interessant?“

Hier also – unsortiert das, was davon im Gedächtnis geblieben ist (es gab natürlich noch viel mehr, zum Beispiel diese Party in der Münzstraße… aber das ist nicht so interessant) – ein nochmals leicht überarbeiteter Bericht über die IPC Spring-Edition 2012. Diese fand vom 03. bis 06. Juni in Berlin statt. Ich war vom 5. auf den 6. Juni dort, das war auch mal wieder notwendig, denn das letzte mal war ich 2009 auf einer IPC gewesen.


Sildes from „Googol Records (with MySQL)“-Session

IPC is over. My impression: The place was too big making it a little bit difficult to get in contact with others. Yet, from a technical and gastronomical point of view the Rheingoldhalle was a good choice. For the next IPC I would recommend to anker a hotel-ship near the hall (the Rheingoldhalle is situated at the bank of the river Rhine) to avoid a 30min shuttle bus ride from and to the hotel. ;-)

But back to my talk there.

The initial idea to this session was a performance consulting in spring this year: For a table with appr. 250 billion entries I found a way to store and read about 6,000 queries per second! I applied some very unusual ways to speed up a problem by factor 1,000 or 2,000 just by thinking about how I would do it, if I had to store the things in my home supposed they were real things such as cutlery.

I found out, that there are some patterns, which can be used in general and that they work for nearly every problem with very big tables. Just see for yourself how I solved the problem.

Please note: The slides could probably not be understood without explaining some of the ideas. Be free to post your questions as comment!
PS: The „C“ in the pictures is the „catalog“.
PSS: YES, we’ve uploaded a new slideshare, the pictures are now working.

International PHP Conference 2006

Expect a great conference this year, with a lineup of
great speakers. This time, I would like to thank all the speakers of this and the past 7 (!) conference shows,
from PHP Kongress 2000 up to now. It’s great to see such a thriving PHP community over the last 8 years.

Come to this year’s International PHP Conference and enjoy the talks. :-)

Call for Papers: International PHP Conference 2006, 5th – 8th Nov, Frankfurt/Main

This is just a public reminder for the Call for Papers of the November Conference. Like last year, we invite everybody to submit session proposals for the International PHP Conference. This year’s Conference features a track about Security, a topic that will be more and more important.

The Conference is splitted into the first two days presenting a series of so-called PowerWorkshops. These are mostly 6 hours long and cover a dedicated topic. Attendees have the possibility to learn hands-on from the speaker and to work through the topic.

Last year’s Management Day was a success, so we want to repeat this one also this year again. We’re preparing a bunch of other activities like the Code Camp and more to come.

If you want to join the PHP Conference as a sponsor (like Oracle does for example), just drop Frank Stepan a note.

For the details of the CfP (which is valid until 21st of May, so hurry up!) see http://www.phpconference.com/. Submitting the proposal is done via input.entwickler.com/phpconference (you have to register and then submit your proposal).

Hope to see you again in November!
