Scaling & Deploying PHP Apps
Scaling & Deploying PHP Apps
About the Bundle
Developers in startups or in small teams often end up as involuntary sysadmins, spending a lot of time putting out fires on servers. This is the pill for releaving those headaches. When you have an application with a good deploy process, that is tailored for scaling and you have servers that are able to scale and handle the traffic you receive, then you can relax. You can get back to doing what you're best at, shipping code.
Scaling PHP7 Applications
5+ years of lessons learnt Scaling PHP to billions of requests per second
Stop playing sysadmin and get back to coding. You didn't sign up to put out fires and figuring out how to scale MySQL isn't exactly going to ship features any faster. You know that learning the intricaces of my.cnf is a waste of time, but you don't have another choice. In the book, you'll get a crash-course on every important tuning option, why it matters, and a quick formula to figure out the perfect settings for your hardware. Bliss.
You've heard alot about Nginx and horizontal scaling, and there're thousands of tutorials out there, but the quality ranges from abysmal to "this must be a joke", and when you finally find a good one, it's usually for Rails. I know what it's like to scramble around, reading bad advice on StackOverflow, copy-and-pasting config files from some message board hope that one of them finally works... pulling at your hair, swearing at the screen.
What if it didn't have to be this way? What if there was a single, high-quality resource of information on scaling PHP, on doing things the right way, that actually focused on PHP and not Rails, Node.js or the flavor of the week? Something that taught you scalable architecture and things you might run into when your only user isn't your mom?Learn the perfect PHP stack, LHNMPRR
Okay, okay- nothing will ever be as catchy as LAMP ;-)
You'll master a new, more scalable stack called LHNMPRR (Linux, HAProxy, Nginx, MySQL, PHP, Redis, & Resque) that can scale just by throwing more hardware at. You'll be able to finally get your setup to be perfect, all while using a battle tested stack that's been proven to handle billions of requests.Think of it as your Cheat Code for PHP
<?php ↑↑↓↓←→←→BA ?>
You'll also see the exact configurations and technologies that were used and proven at massive scale— 22 billion HTTP requests per month, thousands of MySQL queries per second— basically a metric-truck ton of visitors.
Deploying PHP Applications
The world for developers is becoming more and more agile. This increases the importance of having a great deploy process. Being able to adapt and react fast to changes is the way to stay agile. With a slow or complicated deploy process it becomes impossible to stay agile. You want to be able to respond fast to feedback and iterate with a fast and easy deploy (or rollback). That is the agile way.
A deploy is an important part of the software development process. Somehow it has been forgotten a bit in the PHP community. I hope to share my thoughts and experiences in this book to aid you in optimizing your deploy process. "Software rot" is something that happens to code if it's not maintained in a proper way. When it comes to deploy I call it "shipping rot". Let's try to stay away from that and treat our deploy process as any other important part of our applications.
You might be a developer. You might be the manager of or product owner to a team of developers. You will benefit from this whomever you might be. Whether you want to optimize the deploy process for technical or management reasons doesn't matter.
The style of the book will not be in the form of that you need to read the entire thing from start to finish. You could pick the areas where your process is suffering and focus on that. There will be both theory and technical implementation of the concepts.
This book is fully open source, you can find everything in the github repository: https://github.com/modess/deploying-php-applications, the book also has an external landing page here: http://www.deployingphpapplications.com/

Atomic KotlinBruce Eckel and Svetlana Isakova
For both beginning and experienced programmers! From the author of the multi-award-winning Thinking in C++ and Thinking in Java together with a member of the Kotlin language team comes a book that breaks the concepts into small, easy-to-digest "atoms," along with exercises supported by hints and solutions directly inside IntelliJ IDEA!
C++20 is the next big C++ standard after C++11. As C++11 did it, C++20 changes the way we program modern C++. This change is, in particular, due to the big four of C++20: ranges, coroutines, concepts, and modules.
The book is almost daily updated. These incremental updates ease my interaction with the proofreaders.
Introductory Statistics with Randomization and SimulationMine Cetinkaya-Rundel, Christopher Barr, OpenIntro, and David Diez

Java OOP Done RightAlan Mellor
Object Oriented Programming is still a great way to create clean, maintainable code. But only if you use it right.
This book gives you 25 years of OO best practice, ready to use.
You'll learn to design objects behaviour-first, use TDD to help, then confidently apply Design Patterns, SOLID principles and Refactoring to make clean, crafted code.

Ansible is a simple, but powerful, server and configuration management tool. Learn to use Ansible effectively, whether you manage one server—or thousands.
Composing SoftwareEric Elliott
All software design is composition: the act of breaking complex problems down into smaller problems and composing those solutions. Most developers have a limited understanding of compositional techniques. It's time for that to change.
Cloud StrategyGregor Hohpe
“Strategy is the difference between making a wish and making it come true.” A successful migration to the cloud shouldn’t be driven by wishes, but guided by a sound strategy, frameworks, and decision models. This book tells you how—without becoming superficial nor getting lost in technology and product details.
