Building global web apps with multi-region hosting

Jordi Boggiano (26.Jan.2019 at 14:50, 1 hr )
Talk at PHPBenelux Conference 2019 (English - US)

Rating: 4 of 5

This session will explore various setups and case studies from my attempts at hosting sites used by global audiences, from Packagist to Teamup, a calendar web app used around the world.

There are many ways this can be achieved with different levels of success, budgets and global-ness.

The talk will touch on Terraform, AWS, global DNS resolution and CDNs amongst other things.

Typical Jordi talk, very relaxed, almost non-chalant and based in real world experiences. Was hoping for a little more technical details.

Great talk, I always love hearing case studies and 'how we did' talks.

For 5*:
- this was not my 1st time listening to Jordi, I feel like speakers accent has become stronger, making it a bit harder to understand
- some of the slides had lot of facts which made it harder to follow as I switched from listening to reading whats on the slides

Not connected to the talk but to the subject, maybe you should look to give ops bit more focus (or hire a dedicated dev-ops person), it felt due to fear of managing your own things when there is no one-click AWS support lots of 'hacking' was done on the apps to get things running. (Sorry for digressing)

Interesting and entertaining talk. It was nice to see how you tackled some issues about the subject, but i would personally liked a bit more technical details.
