  • Git for Ages 4 and Up

    by Schwern and Ricardo Signes

    Git makes so much more sense when you understand how it really works. It only has two tricks, and they're really simple, but explanations go on about Directed Acyclic Graphs and Octopus Merges and a bunch of CS jargon nobody understands. Feh. You can illustrate and understand git using just children's toys!

  • Introducing Assetic: Asset Management for PHP 5.3

    by Kris Wallsmith

    Even the fastest PHP project can be bogged down by bloated Javascript and CSS stylesheet files. Tools like YUI Compressor and Google’s Closure Compiler address this pain point, but can be difficult to integrate into a PHP workflow. Assetic gives you the tools painlessly integrate the latest and greatest optimization techniques into your PHP 5.3 project.

    In this presentation Kris Wallsmith, Symfony Guru at OpenSky, will give an introduction to using Assetic in your PHP project and discuss existing integrations with Symfony2 and the Twig templating language.

  • Performance vs Scalability, Blocking vs. Non-blocking

    by gleicon

    Sometimes there is a mix between performance and scalability, but they are different dimensions. Changing your code from blocking to non-blocking yields scalability at the cost of a complexity. In this talk I show how Python, Ruby and JS do that, the differences between their async toolkits and some basic building blocks for web and high load applications.

Why should you as an open source developer care? What do you need to think about in your applications? How can you make sure your apps work with IPv6?
