PHP Fog: The Future of PHP Hosting
Joel Clermont
Ruby has Heroku and now PHP has PHP Fog. A common problem for PHP developers is how to easily deploy their applications to a solid server platform that is fast, reliable and scalable. PHP Fog is a new startup that aims to solve that problem for PHP developers. Best of all, PHP Fog supports many common applications (WordPress, Drupal, Zend Framework, etc) so it's not just for hardcore PHP engineers. I will demonstrate how this works and talk about the pros and cons of this type of service. For those that are interested, 10 invite codes will be made given away for the private beta of PHP Fog. You must be present to receive a code.

At Bucketworks - 6:00p.m.

MilwaukeeDevHouse5 IRC Log

Thanks to Mike Putnam for logging and publishing the IRC log... It's probably more readable on his site, but we're putting it here for posterity as well. I've slightly edited it to add the links and remove system messages, but don't worry, the golden nuggets of wisdom remain. View the whole thing.

MilwaukeeDevHouse5 - Dec 3, 2010 - Bucketworks, Milwaukee, WI - web414.com

MilwaukeeDevHouse5Friday, December 3rd, 2010 — 5pm - Midnight

This will be the first MilwaukeeDevHouse with a purpose... In the past we just called it a "party with laptops" and invited you to come and work on whatever you wanted to. You can still do that, but we're also going to focus on ways to make BarCampMilwaukee (and Bucketworks) better.

Call it "Hack the BarCamp!" or maybe "Hack the Bucket!"

We're going to come up with ideas (crazy ideas are welcome!) about things we can do, processes we can put in place, technology we can deploy, that will help to make BarCampMilwaukee a better experience. Some of the things may be specific to Bucketworks, our venue host for the last five BarCampMilwaukee events, and a space many BarCampMilwaukee participants use for monthly meetups as well.

More details will follow on this, but we're pretty excited about the possibilities, and hope you can join us.
