San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
UPDATE: following the video we will now have a live Q&A via Skype with the speaker of the video @stuherbert. This is an edPUG first, make sure you can say "you were there!" :)
It's the last edPUG before Halloween, so if anyone comes dressed as the PHP elePHPant they will automatically win the PhpStorm licence!
We've been spoiled with excellent talks the last few months, so this month we are taking a breather and watching a video together:
Stuart Herbert - PHP at the Firehose Scale
"Here's one to give the PHP bashers a well-deserved black eye! Twitter is one of the world's best known social media sites, handling over 500 million public tweets a day (that's around 6,000 tweets a second). Together, they're delivered to select partners as a 'firehose' of data, who in turn deliver it on to their customers. DataSift is one of Twitter's firehose partners, and when someone presses 'Send' in their Twitter client, we aim to get that tweet into the hands of our customers in about 1 second. And PHP plays several key roles in making that possible. Come along and hear Stuart explain just how."
Also, if anyone fancies doing an informal few minutes show and tell of anything they've been working on recently they can jump on the big screen before the feature video starts. No slides required, just you, the keyboard and the Internet!
As usual, food and drinks available on the night, hope to see you there!
When & Where
edPUG takes place on the third Tuesday of every month. It is free to come along, but we issue electronic tickets via Eventbrite to control the capacity of the venue. Get your ticket early to avoid disappointment! We’ll also email those with a free ticket with a reminder a few days before the event.
