PHP, gRPC, and Microservices
You don’t have to leave PHP to get the benefits of a microservice architecture. PHP fits well in the world of containers, orchestration, and service meshes. This talk will discuss deploying PHP applications as both gRPC clients and servers. We’ll discuss deployment of PHP applications into Kubernetes and integration with a service mesh based on Envoy. PHP applications can easily expose metrics to systems like Prometheus. This talk will show techniques for deploying existing PHP applications into the "Cloud Native" ecosystem. MailChimp has been doing this as we migrate our PHP monolith.
