The Northeast PHP Conference is a community conference intended for networking and collaboration in the developer community. While grounded in PHP, the conference is not just about PHP. Talks on web technology, user experience, and IT management help PHP developers broaden their skill sets. We are entirely non-profit. Our organizers and and speakers volunteer their time to create a community event experience on par with the big technology conferences. We value the participation of each member of the PHP community, so follow @NEPHP on Twitter for updates and don’t miss out!

Cloud-First Development with AWS and PHP

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When writing prototypes and testing new ideas, it's tough to strike the right balance between relying on hosted services and running them yourself. Cloud-based services like S3 and SQS can help your application scale and keep costs down, but the instant feedback you get from running all your own dependencies can speed up testing and development. In this talk, we'll explore how to avoid that trade-off by building for the cloud without giving up the rapid feedback loop that comes from running everything on your laptop. In particular, we'll look at how to build a web app that uses battle-hardened and scalable AWS services like S3, SQS, Amazon Aurora, Cognito, and Lambda while keeping a local-only environment for experimentation and rapid development. We'll achieve this using some popular abstraction libraries like FlySystem, Eloquent, and Laravel's authentication and queueing components, but we'll also address using alternatives or writing your own. You should walk out of the room with examples and strategies for building for scale without compromising the rapid feedback loop of PHP development.
