1st Talk: Comparing the Node.js and PHP ecosystems from a Digital Agency point-of-view

Over the last 5 years Lifely has changed it’s tech stack a lot. Starting out with Symfony a couple of years ago, we moved to Node.js, then to Meteor (Javascript) and back to Node.js again (Typescript) while in the meantime also using Laravel for different PHP applications. In this talk we’ll take a look at the differences between the PHP and Node.js ecosystems from a couple of different perspectives ranging from the languages themselves to their respective underlying infrastructure and what this all means for our devops- and development teams.

Speaker: Bryan te Beek is the lead dev-ops engineer at software agency Lifely. The team builds a lot of different applications for a lot of different customers. Provisioning, monitoring, continuously deploying and scaling this landscape with modern technology such as docker, ansible, kubernetes are the things that make everyone love to work with Bryan’s clean infrastructures.
