Last weekend was the inaugural run of the Northeast PHP Conference in Boston. Wayfair was a gold sponsor, so we bought t-shirts, paid for apps and beer at the Saturday night event, and also sent about 15 engineers to the event. I gave a talk on High Performance PHP, and we had a blast. Check out the slides from my talk. The feedback was great, and we look forward to sponsoring the conference again next year!
You can also take a look at some of the other talks that we really enjoyed:
Thanks to Michael Bourque and the other organizers for putting on a great event!
Python is my favorite computer language for data science, but it is a poorly standardized beast when it comes to packaging, deployment, web operations, etc. There are plenty of people who are deploying Python code to the web effectively, but especially in the data science area, there is no equivalent of the LAMP stack that you can just plug in and start coding against. We have a way, among other possible ways, of solving these problems, that we think people might find useful, and I am going to describe our methods in a couple of blog posts.

If you haven’t heard about the ESC Conference yet, you should check it out!
It’s a new conference this year, giving us all another place to congregate and discuss running code and systems at scale. If you’ve been to a devopsdays conference before then you will be familiar with and enjoy the opportunity to have a full day of Open Spaces!
The first day of the conference has a great line-up of talks, including one from our friends over at Etsy, and two talks from the Wayfair Engineering team! Jonathan Klein will be presenting “Deep Dive Frontend Optimization” and Dan Rowe (me ) will be talking about monitoring with “Graphite, Statsd, and Graphite-Tattle : Simple metric collection meets self-serve alerts”. We hope you can make it!
