Over a six month period, I lead the project to rewrite a top 100 website using a new software stack. Doing so, we used HAProxy, Varnish, Nginx, PHP-FPM, Symfony2, Syslog-ng, Redis and MySQL to create a platform that handles 100 million page views per day and has room to grow.
In this presentation, I’ll cover what we did, the challenges we faced and the solutions we found.
I've spent the last 9 years building, supporting and improving high traffic websites. Some of the biggest in the world. I've worked as a developer, lead and manager and throughout it is all I've have learned a lot and had a good time.
