PHP Creator, World Class Developers and a Few Good Hackers Slated for February Miami Conference

Thirty top web developers from around the world will provide training and lectures on the latest developments and techniques in PHP programming at the first annual Sunshine PHP Conference (http://sunshinephp.com/) on February 8th and 9th at the Embassy Suites Miami International Hotel.

Among them will be Rasmus Lerdof, the man who created PHP in San Francisco in 1995, Fabien Potencier, founder of SensioLabs and creator of the Symfony PHP framework and Keith Casey of Twilio. The event features 30 training sessions and keynotes, as well as a “hackathon” sponsored by Mashery and an “unconference,” or unstructured series of talks.

PHP is an open source, server-side programming language that has increased in popularity as the driving force behind WordPress, as well as other leading content management systems. Boca Raton-based developer and conference founder Adam Culp has organized over 38 training events through his South Florida PHP Users group, often with partners like Revelex Corporation, 10Gen, Mashery and MoreDirect.

Lerdof kicks off the conference on February 8th with a keynote followed by a full day of training including, “PHPUnit Best Practices” with PHPUnit founder Sebastian Bergmann. Day two features “Cryptography for the Average Developer” with Anthony Ferrara, an applications architect at NBC Universal and part of the PHP core development team and “How Kris Writes Symfony Apps” with Kris Wallsmith, architect of OpenSky. Keith Casey will give closing remarks.

Leading technology companies have sponsored the conference, including SensioLabs, Windows Azure, ServerGrove, Twilio, Mashery, In2it, MySQL, Engine Yard, KnpUniversity, 10gen, Foxycart!, MoreDirect, New Relic, github, PhpStorm, TrueNorthPHP, Adobe, Web & PHP Magazine, PHPDeveloper.org, php|architect magazine, Sphero and O'Reilly.

This is the first year for the Sunshine PHP Conference, but it’s destined to become a leading annual event for developers from around the world. The conference is the brainchild of Adam Culp, a developer, trainer and speaker who also founded the South Florida PHP Users Group, which has over 360 members. Culp has over 12 years of website development experience and has organized over 38 training events in South Florida and has spoken at conferences across the United States. The Sunshine PHP Conference is a unique event because it’s the only one of its kind in the Southeastern United States.

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in this new hybrid and dynamic environment.
Serveless Architectures brings the ability to independently scale, deploy and heal based on workloads and move away from monolithic designs. From the front-end, middle-ware and back-end layers, serverless workloads potentially have a larger security risk surface due to the many moving pieces. This talk will focus on key areas to consider for securing end to end, from dev to prod. We will discuss patterns for end to end TLS, session management, scaling to absorb attacks and mitigation techniques.
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. SD-WAN helps enterprises to take advantage of the exploding landscape of cloud applications and services, due to its unique capability to support all things cloud related.
"We focus on SAP workloads because they are among the most powerful but somewhat challenging workloads out there to take into public cloud," explained Swen Conrad, CEO of Ocean9, Inc., in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
