Update: a recording of this class is available at http://iprodeveloper.com/let-your-php-apps-fly-ibm-i-high-performance-php-demand
This Tuesday, learn how to Let Your PHP applications fly on IBM i. Busy? You can attend while getting your work done, with three one-hour class segments separated by breaks.
“Our process now runs 30-50% faster, thanks to one tip from Alan’s presentation.”
—Mike Meszaros, Software Developer, Specialty Pipe & Tube
You’ll learn to quickly improve your application’s performance, including:
- Give your app that “snap” by optimizing its front end as well as PHP
- Configure Zend Server for performance
- Diagnose bottlenecks
- Leverage unique IBM i performance tools
- Optimize DB2 and the IBM i toolkit
I’ll be there to answer your questions. What’s more, the presentation will be archived for 60 days so you can review the material afterward.
“Alan is the performance guru of PHP on IBM i. When we encountered unexpectedly slow queries and program calls, Alan showed us a configuration change that helped our application run 3x faster, creating happy users. Thanks, Alan!”
—Adam Chuk Shirley, PHP Developer, Sabel Steel Service

All are invited to try and enjoy this update before it’s officially packaged:
XMLSERVICE 1.7.8 and PHP Toolkit 1.5.0
My favorite part is in the performance improvements. There are also bug fixes to data areas and data queues, configurable PASE CCSID, an HTTP-based driverless transport, and more.
Try these and let me know how it goes (especially if you encounter any issues).
I’ve started a consulting firm dedicated to helping companies attain superior results with PHP, Zend Framework, IBM i, and related technologies such as Zend Server, DB2, and the new PHP toolkit.
We will provide guidance and best practices, training, mentoring, troubleshooting, performance help, team building, speaking, writing, and advocacy.
My first speaking engagement with my new company will be the OCEAN conference on July 20, 2012, in Southern California. Hope to see some of you there.
Thanks for your support. I will be available starting July 2 after a short vacation. I look forward to working with you.
Tomorrow I’m presenting a new webcast, New PHP Toolkit from Zend and IBM: Open Source on IBM i, as part of System i Network’s free “Virtual Conference.”
Date: Thursday, April 5
Time: 11:15am ET
Registration (free): http://tinyurl.com/new-toolkit-20120405
Other presentations in the virtual conference include Jon Paris explaining why PHP is an excellent strategic choice on IBM i, two talks on mobile technology, and more.
I invite you to watch the webcast, ask questions, and learn more about the new toolkit.
Hope you can join me for “Web performance first aid,” a webcast for the COMMON user group. The webcast will be recorded and archived for future listenings as well.
The webcast is for COMMON members, so anyone wanting to hear it needs to join COMMON.
I based the presentation on my consulting practice that helps ensure high performance for PHP and Zend Framework applications on IBM i. Good performance is critical for customer acceptance of web sites and mobile applications.
Anyone wishing to see just the slides can do that on my site: http://alanseiden.com/presentations and look for “Web performance first aid.”
Thank you to Alex for this honor. This site will continue to offer articles, presentations, event listings, and news about PHP, Zend Framework, IBM i, and other topics of interest to the PHP/i community.
Please join me for my IBM i-focused PHP talks this fall. I’ll present these topics:
- web services with PHP and Zend Framework
- batch and command-line tasks with PHP
- RPG-based 5250 applications as the basis for new web applications
…all focused on PHP on IBM i!
Here are the dates, locations and web sites with more information:
I look forward to meeting many of you at these great conferences and education days.
Join me at at Long Island PHP on June 7, 2010, where I’ll present a case study showing how I integrated Windows-based data into an IBM i-based application using SOAP with Zend Framework.
The principles are the same no matter what type of servers you use.
Event details: http://www.listnet.org/eventDetails.cfm?eventID=1263
There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
Hope to see you there!
