Happy New Year from all of us here at PHPBenelux. A new year is an opportunity to start fresh and improve what we’ve done in the previous year. Even though the pandemic is still creating havoc around the world, we are optimistic about the future and even dream about organizing in-person events again. But until we can make our dreams a reality, we’ll keep on providing you with online content.

This month we have Matthew Setter with us to talk about deploying PHP apps with Docker. Of course we will have our monthly raffle and a cosy chit-chat session afterwards.

Have a 👀 at the schedule below.

INTERESTED IN SPEAKING? Mail us at meetup@phpbenelux.eu.

🗣 Matthew Setter – Deploy PHP Apps with Docker

So, why deploy with Docker, especially when there are so many other deployment options?

I’ll speak for myself and say that in my experience, after learning enough about Docker, and getting just a few more grey hairs, I’ve found Docker to be a simpler, more homogeneous way of deploying than I’d been used to in the past, using tools such as Rocketeer, Capistrano, and Rsync over SSH.

I’ve found that by using some standardised files and a small set of commands, I can deploy an application almost as easily to production as I can on my local development machine.

In this talk, I want to share what I’ve learned about Docker in the hope that what I’ve learned can help others. Enjoy!

If you’d like to dive far deeper, I’ve written a free book called Docker Essentials, which I based this talk on. It covers the topic in a lot more detail than the talk does, yet without going overboard. It’s packed with tips, tricks, and pointers that I’ve learned along the way. If you’re interested, you can download a copy, for free, from https://dockeressentials.com.

💸 Event sponsoring

Long term support comes from our friends at SPATIE, the Belgian Laravel tooling factory and web agency. Go check out their great training course “Front Line PHP” to learn all about building modern applications with PHP 8 or visit their “Myray.app” for unprecedented debugging of PHP applications.

And we weren’t able to make these meetups possible without the help of IN2IT. We are super grateful to Michelangelo and his crew for providing logistical support in this endeavour 👏

Interested in becoming a sponsor at our next event? Send us an email to sponsoring@phpbenelux.eu and we’ll make it happen!
