More and more companies move to IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), and move their application to use managed cloud services. There are different techniques to enable services to communicate in the cloud. One of them is message queues. I will show you through examples how you can use the Symfony Messenger to integrate your Symfony application with message queues, and to interact with cloud services.
Thibault is a French computer engineering student, working in London as a Full-stack Software Engineer at Birdie, a health-tech startup. He has worked with many different stacks across projects, but when it comes to Back-End, his heart stays with Symfony. Thibault always looks for ways to optimize an architecture or a process, and how to improve the quality and speed of delivery.
Ever find yourself deploying your Symfony app to your EC2 boxes and wondering if you're using your resources wisely? You're almost certainly paying for CPU time you're not using, and scaling PHP applications on AWS can be tricky.
Wouldn't it be great to pay only for the stuff you actually use, and if your site could scale instantly without needing to configure auto-scaling-groups, alarms, and rules? AWS Lambda gives us these features but has no native PHP support.
With emerging tools a lot of the pain of getting running has been fixed for you; the hacks and workarounds are no longer necessary and we can finally deploy PHP applications on top of FaaS infrastructure.
Today we'll go through the steps required to set up a real Symfony 4 service running on Lambda, served over HTTPS, and without launching a single EC2 instance or ELB.
Finally we'll see if we can retro-fit to older Symfony applications, and think about how we might benchmark application performance.
