In Namshi, an e-commerce retailer based in Dubai serving the UAE, we are using different technologies to boost our architecture. We started with a common architecture based on PHP (Yii and Zend Framework), NGINX, MySQL and Memcache: the usual suspects.During last year the architecture changed a lot, using an SOA paradigm to meet expectations and the huge increase of traffic from several milions users throughout the year and PHP is still dispatching and serving the huge number of responses. But there’s more…In this talk we will show how funny, easy and rewarding is to integrate different technologies in your stack, with PHP always being the king of the whole system.
