== TALK ==
“Developing cacheable PHP applications “

In this presentation I will show you how to leverage HTTP headers in your PHP application to achieve a maximum hit rate, without losing touch with the challenges of real-world web projects.

We’ll talk about cache-control headers, ESI, AJAX calls, vary headers, accept-language, separating stateful from stateless content, conditional requests, and content invalidation. I’ll apply these concepts to a Symfony 4 application in a non-intrusive way.
