For the last twelve years we've been giving conference talks and writing books about how to develop for the web in PHP. Over that time we've made a bunch of recommendations: some still hold true, and some things have changed quite a bit since 2000. We'll talk about how the landscape's changed, and how and when you should change the way you work. Read more.

Modern web services are expected to be capable of providing realtime services to a large number of concurrent connections from web browsers, and web API clients. Distributed systems are common. The fine grained concurrency, message oriented programming model and transparent distribution capabilities make Erlang well suited for these types of systems. Cowboy brings Erlang's power to the web.

At Microsoft I had the unique opportunity to sit behind a one way mirror and watch people try to solve problems. Behind that mirror I learned we've done so very little to enable us to realize our creations and that our tools often cause us to stumble instead of propel us forward. In my talk we'll deconstruct what I learned to see how Light Table might be the future of tools. Read more.
