Research: Type-safety in PHP


Robert Stoll, an ICT student from Switzerland is researching type safety in PHP for his undergraduate study. This is a very interesting topic and he wants to see how the community deals with this in its day to day development.

The deliverables of the research will be provided in an Open Source Project at the conclusion of the research.

If you want to help, all he needs is 5 to 20 minutes of your time to answer a survey.

Talk: “Let’s speed it up a bit”

It is said that when asking people how a website can be optimised for speed, about 14 answers come up. For both simple HTML sites on shared hosting and advanced multi-server web applications, I’m sharing these answers as strategies to speed up your (php powered) website in this talk.

We got some awesome stuff to give away this month, so make sure you RSVP for the meetup if you’re coming and want a shot at getting it!
