(Online) Deployment of PHP-Apps with Docker

Following some great feedback from his recent talk at PHPUGFFM, we have invited Matthew Setter (@webdevwithmatt) to present his "Deployment of PHP-Apps with Docker" talk.

Abstract:

Building matching development and production environments - and any other environment for that matter - can often be a real challenge, which makes deploying PHP apps more difficult than it should be. But by using Docker Compose you can take a lot of the hassle away.

(Online) PHP 8, and Happy Developers

This month we have two talks from two guest speakers.

We're happy to have Christopher Miller (@ccmiller2018) back again to speak about PHP 8, and Matt Hunt about happy Developers and how organisations can foster the talent they have got and ultimately have a happy workforce.
