We’ll be speaking at the leading web development conference - PHP UK 2015

Posted by: Absolute Design

We’'re very pleased to announce that our Director of Web Development, Liam Wiltshire, will be joining a prestigious roster of speakers at next year’s PHP UK conference in London. 

The annual PHP UK Conference, which runs 19th-20th February 2015, is now in its 10th year and regularly attracts hundreds of delegates from around the world.

Liam will be addressing a familiar problem that many PHP developers face: ‘How can we make our application faster?’ But it’s not just a simple case of adding more RAM, OpCode caching or load balancing. Instead it’s something more obvious - mySQL.

‘Every PHP developer knows how to query a table, join tables and many even do funky sub selects and unions,’ Liam explains. ‘But not everyone knows how mySQL handles all this under the hood.’ His presentation will cover eight of the most common issues and tools that affect mySQL performance, which will help any PHP developer soup up their mySQL install.?

In his eight years as a web developer, Liam has tackled large and small projects, from local businesses to multi-million pound ecommerce sites. At Absolute he mainly focuses on back-end integration and ecommerce development, although what he doesn’t know about back-end development isn’t worth knowing.

The two day event based in The Brewery, at the heart of the City of London, is designed to deliver the best, up-to-date knowledge about PHP and its related web technologies, while providing lots of opportunities to network and share experiences.
