Big Data & the LAMP Stack: How to Boost Performance

As the LAMP stack serves as the technology basis for many websites and analytic systems, LAMP users begin to see drops in performance with little warning as the amount of data generated increases– and then try to compensate by fine-tuning databases, upgrading hardware, expanding storage systems, and archiving old data. Couple this performance degradation with inefficient monitoring tools and companies face daunting data challenges.
What if you could achieve much higher analytic performance and superior monitoring with no database tuning and much less hardware?

In this webinar, Infobright and Zend will discuss two products that seamlessly integrate with the LAMP stack to deliver dramatic improvements in performance before and after the integration.

New SPL Features for PHP 5.3

The SPL, or Standard PHP Library, is an often overlooked extension in the PHP core. It first came on the scene in PHP 5 and a variety of iterators constituted the majority of its initial offerings. Though the iterator offerings were expanded in PHP 5.3, the particularly interesting additions to the SPL were several specialized data structure classes, the foundational concepts for which originate in the field of computer science. This webinar will provide an overview of these new classes and explain why and when they should be used.

Seven Steps to Better PHP code
Developers spend an increasing amount of time maintaining existing code. Refactoring is a technique to make code more readable, maintainable, and extendable by improving the design, but without changing the visible behaviour. Refactoring can be successfully used in conjunction with migrations, bug fixing, when preparing to extend code, or just as an anti-aging measure to keep your code fresh.
This two-part webinar will introduce you to a seven-step refactoring methodology specifically designed for PHP. PHP expert Stefan Priebsch will show you how to successfully apply refactoring to your PHP projects. This makes your code a little better every day, and helps you write better code in the future.
