Going Beyond LAMP – WordCamp Sheffield 2014

Events and Talks | WordPress

WordCamp Sheffield was on Sat 26th of April and was a fantastic local WordCamp, I did a presentation on Going Beyond Lamp, looking at other technologies to either wholesale replace your LAMP stack or compliment it.

Before jumping to the slides and notes, a small friendly reminder, if you took a beer token off me last night, just like the Kings Shilling you made a promise, though fear not it’s not recruitment to the army, but rather to sign up to the newsletter to the left (or on a mobile from the menu at the top) so you best do it now if you haven’t already.

Use the right tool for the job

I can’t emphasis this enough, the most popular is not always the right tool, and thats not just when it comes to server technologies, but Themes, Plugins etc.

It’s very easy for a plugin to become very popular, if evangelised by the right people, and not be any good. So with that in mind, I present alternatives, but it’s for you to play with them and see what will fit your environment.
