  • PHP development with Docker and FigEven if you don’t want to deploy your application as a Docker container, you still can use docker to ease your development process and make it more reliable.
    I’ll talk about Docker and Fig, what they are and how you can use it to setup and maintain your development environment, including multiple php versions.
  • Josh HolmesMicrosoft Azure is more than a simple scalable hosting option as it is truly a platform as a service offering. This allows you to focus on your application rather than the configuring and managing your infrastructure whether you are writing C# or VB.NET or even languages such as PHP or Ruby which are first class citizens in Microsoft Azure. Questions around why, when and how you should move to the cloud, especially if you are using PHP or Ruby, remain to be answered. Should I put everything in Windows Azure? Do you have to convert everything you have to ASP.NET? Do you have to write code specifically for Microsoft Azure? What if my current applications depend on MySQL and/or memcached?
