Tech Lead BBC News Having helped transform iPlayer from a prehistoric platform to PHP in 2010, I joined BBC News in 2011 to do the same. This time not only targeting desktop but developing mobile first and building responsively all the the way up.
Scale and adapt with PHP and Responsive Design – A story of how we’re building BBC News
Life used to be easy. We created sites to work on a few browsers and when we had time we asked the new guy to build a half baked mobile version. Then the device explosion ruined our cozy happy dev life. My talk will discuss how BBC News met this challenge.
- – How we support as many devices as possible using responsive design.
- – How we scale to serve BBC News to the masses.
- – How we’re using a sprinkle of Symfony2 components in our Zend world.
- – What tools we use to help us along the way.
