Quick, what do memcache, MogileFS, and Gearman have in common? They are scalable, distributed technologies, and they can also interface with PHP, your ubiquitous Web development language. Digg uses all 3 (and a few more) in its quest for social news domination, and this session will share much of what we’ve learned about them and how they are best utilized with PHP.
Andrei is Open Source Fellow at Digg, where he works on PHP and other open source technologies. In the past he was building social video game platforms at Outspark and internal tools at Yahoo!, specializing in internationalisation (i18n) and infrastructure software. He is also a core PHP developer, leader of the PHP-GTK project, and a co-author of PHP Developer’s Cookbook and the Smarty templating system. His current focus is the native Unicode and i18n support in PHP.
