Getting Started with Serverless PHP

Getting Started with Serverless PHP

These are the slides from a talk given at LonghornPHP 2022.

Some of us love to manage servers. But for a lot of PHP developers, servers are something we'd rather avoid. We're happy to pay hosting providers so we don't have to worry about it.

PHP hosting doesn't remove all your hosting headaches. You still have to worry about scaling. You're often overpaying for hosting because you have to worry about the worst-case scenario.

Well, that's what serverless PHP tries to solve. With serverless PHP, you only pay for what you use. Meanwhile, you get an infrastructure that can scale from handling zero traffic to thousands in seconds.

This talk will go over serverless PHP and how it works. We'll then look at the state of serverless in the PHP ecosystem. We'll finish by going over tools and projects you can use to deploy your PHP application on AWS Lambda.
