Talk: The Serverless LAMP Stack

AWS Lambda, Amazon API Gateway, MySQL, PHP – it’s LAMP but not as you know it. In this session, I’ll show why there has never been a better time to build serverless applications with PHP. Using this new LAMP stack to build serverless applications allows PHP developers to benefit from the agility and scalability enabled by the serverless paradigm, all without needing to manage servers. I’ll demo how to get started running your PHP code using functions as a service. You’ll learn how to connect to databases at scale with spiky workloads, and continue to use your favourite libraries and tools, without impacting performance or availability. Learn how to become a serverless PHP developer, and use the world’s most popular web runtime to build scalable, agile apps without the server management

Speaker: Ben Smith
