Build & deploy in the Cloud with Packer, Ansible & Terraform

English session - Beginner

Build vendor-agnostic cloud images using Packer, and provision the necessary software dependencies using Ansible, including your application code. Terraform will deploy these images, and create loadbalanced computing instances on various cloud environments. All this happens in a single configuration format.

Avoid vendor lock-in, and apply a single strategy that works with multiple Cloud vendors.

Developing cacheable PHP applications

English session - Beginner

In this presentation I will show you how to leverage HTTP headers in your PHP application to achieve a maximum hit rate, without losing touch with the challenges of real-world web projects.

We'll talk about cache-control headers, ESI, AJAX calls, vary headers, accept-language, separating stateful from stateless content, conditional requests, and content invalidation.

I'll apply these concepts to a Symfony 3 application to prove my point.
