I'm making some progress on my goal of scheduling/announcing meetings
earlier. Here are the upcoming events of note:
[Don't let this deter you from contacting me about presenting... we
haven't scheduled November and beyond yet. In the past we've often
cancelled the December meeting it seems, but if there's sufficient
interest we can hold one.]
1. UPHPU Meeting, September 15th, 7pm @ C7 Data Center (Bluffdale)
First, we'll have a brief presentation from a visitor from the FBI, I
believe about tech opportunities within their organization.
Then, the main event will be Steve Meyers presenting on PHP Security.
We will be giving away more UTOS Raffle Tickets.
2. UTOS Project Day, Sept. 17th 10am-5:30pm @ SLCC Miller Campus
(Professional Development Center)
Come hack on your favorite open source project, and participate in the
raffle drawing to win a Motorola XOOM tablet, worth >=$500 iirc.
3. UPHPU Meeting, October 20th, 7pm @ C7 Data Center (Bluffdale)
Grant Shipley, from Redhat, will be flying in from North Carolina to
tell us about deploying PHP on ec2 using openshift, and a little about
www.follw.it which is a site he created using Code Igniter, and why I
chose PHP over Java for the follw.it site, despite being a Java
developer for over 10 years.
Scale or Fail - Give your App the Speed it Needs in the Cloud!
Whether you have one or a million visitors accessing your web app,
they are all going to demand a great user experience regardless of
what it takes for you to deliver it. This invariably means quick page
loads and fast response times every single time. When things go south,
you just throw more hardware at the problem and increase your caches
and buffers, right? Wrong. Toss in an infrastructure that resides on
the cloud and now you’ve got a really interesting problem on your
hands. I’ll leave the marketecure slides at the door, this is a
hands-on technical talk in which we'll deploy an application to the
cloud and then turn up the heat by leveraging the right mix of
elasticity and auto-sclaing.
Grant Shipley is an OpenShift PaaS Evangelist at Red Hat focused on
cloud technologies. Prior to that, Grant was a Manager of Software
Development with responsibilities over the www.redhat.com website and

development experience focusing on Java and PHP. In his free time, he
contributes to several open source projects including Media Portal and
