PHPUGDO: Workshop application design

Next thursday we will plan the workshop on application design and development, I started to organize in the PHP Usergroup Dortmund . We will use as an example to show other developers how to design and develop an application which suffer from pretty high load (for one server) and pseudo dynamic content. (short gbo) gained quite some popularity in the german web and IRC sphere, as the biggest german IRC quote database. This is what makes the project really interesting for a lot of our groupies. The workshop will focus on some more advanced topics of development and will not show how to code PHP.


  • Effective content and static caching

  • Integration of external libraries

  • Clean design, and good source documentation Currently we plan to work on this during one weekend, no descision on the date has been made until now.

Because of this short timespan we will try to use some of the technics commonly described as Extreme Programming , as there are:

  • Pair programming

  • Testdriven development

  • Short iterations

  • Collective property The member count of the workshop will be limited to our regular members, because it won't be possible for us to host it for more then 10 o 14 people, and actively develop the application.

I have to thank Sascha Brk (the author an maintainer of gbo) for making this possible. :-)
