Topic: Here’s the scenario: you’ve written a PHP application that is designed to run on Linux, Apache and MySQL. Now you have a customer that wants to run it on Windows. Or using Oracle. Or they like Memcached instead of APC. How do you do it, without sacrificing performance, stability, simplicity and your own sanity? This session will explore how SugarCRM approached this problem and what lessons were learned in the process.
Participants: John Mertic
Date and time: Thursday, July 22, 2010, 5:20 p.m. PT
