ZendCon 2016 dives into OSS ecosystem
ZendCon has been the largest enterprise PHP conference for several years, and this year is no different. What is different is the expansion that this event now holds. ZendCon is no longer just about PHP – it's about the entire open source software ecosystem.
“As our mission grows and our expertise widens, it makes sense that we broaden our conference as well,” says Ido Ben Moshe, VP global support and professional services at Rogue Wave Software. “We care about the development lifecycle in its entirety, so now ZendCon reflects the larger ecosystem.”
Rogue Wave chief product officer Ian McLeod comments, “Our core focus is on enterprise PHP, what it takes to create robust and scalable web and mobile applications with PHP. With the PHP 7 and Zend Server 9 releases, we continue to deliver performance, stability, security, maintenance, and faster time to delivery in a complex and demanding development landscape.” With Zend products – including Zend Server, Zend Framework, Zend Studio, and Apigility – PHP developers can confidently build, maintain, and secure business-critical PHP applications.
Complementing the broad and deep ecosystem supporting enterprise PHP applications, Rogue Wave has increased its open source offerings, including:
Support for the LAMP stack – Zend Server Plus is for customers developing on a LAMP stack, with Zend Server product technology supplemented by expert support throughout the stack, from operating system, database, middleware, and the language itself. With Zend Server Plus, developers and DevOps can obtain commercial-grade support for every element, including open source packages.
PHP development in the cloud – Zend Server and Z-Ray are available via Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Docker cloud platforms, and supported CentOS security hardened and standard packages are available via AWS and Azure.
CentOS support – CentOS is a viable cost-saving alternative for customers seeking alternatives to proprietary Linux distributions. With Rogue Wave enhanced CentOS support, those customers can migrate safely and access expert 24X7 support, including hot fixes and patches for critical issues. Rogue Wave also contributes these CentOS hotfixes and patches to the CentOS community.
The additional emphasis placed on the open source eco-system catapults Rogue Wave as a leader in enterprise PHP and full stack support. At this year's ZendCon, close to 100 sessions across five tracks accelerate great PHP. For more information, visit the ZendCon website.
