Alan Seiden Consulting: PHP and IBM i Expertise › High-performance PHP on IBM i this Tuesday (July 30, 2013)

July 24th, 2013 Comments off

For the first time, I’m teaching how to Let Your PHP applications fly on IBM i, including how to configure Zend Server for performance, diagnose bottlenecks, leverage unique IBM i performance tools, optimize DB2 and the IBM i toolkit, and improve performance of front-end javascript, style sheets, and the like. You’ll come away with knowledge that you can use immediately to improve your application’s performance.

I’ll be there to answer your questions. What’s more, the presentation will be archived for 60 days so you can review the material afterward.

It's been a while since I blogged anything.  I've been quite busy with a VOIP implementation and implementing IBM Connections on IBM i in my day job over the last few months.  Plus baseball season has started so I'm coaching two nights a week.  Prepping content for some fall conferences too. 

Most things I've written recently have come in the form of articles at MC Press Online so I'll point you there.  Just released today is an analysis of new features in IBM Notes 9.  Enjoy.
