WCATL 2015 Session – Battle of the Stacks

When you first start as a developer all you care about is the code. As you progress and become more concerned with performance you begin to realize that there’s a whole world of possibilities and no clear indication of what works best.

In this presentation we’ll look at different combinations of web server technologies including Apache, NGINX, HHVM, PHP-FPM, and more, then we’ll run load tests on each one of them (all running a WordPress site) in a head to head competition to find out which one is the Last Stack Standing.
