Curious about what serverless has to offer? Come experience first-hand how to run modern and scalable applications more simply.

The 2-days workshop is intended for developers, ops or tech leads who want to deploy PHP applications simply, without sacrificing everything that makes a modern stack: zero-downtime deployments, scalability, high availability, security, cost-optimization…

The workshop mixes theory and practical exercises on your machine so that you leave the workshop ready to deploy in production on AWS.

Learn about

  • Serverless and AWS Lambda
  • PHP on Lambda using Bref
  • Adapting existing applications
  • Laravel/Symfony on Lambda
  • Local development
  • Scaling, performances and costs
  • Queue workers and microservices
  • Going to production

That includes CI/CD, logs, monitoring, caching, workers, CDN, AWS services such as RDS, SQS, SNS, EventBridge, S3, API Gateway, ALB, IAM, ACM, DynamoDB, CloudFront...


Participants are expected to have experience with PHP development, as well as basic knowledge of Git and the command line. No knowledge of AWS or serverless is required.

The Serverless PHP workshop is the perfect opportunity to get started.

It gives us a very good overview of the technology, of the doors it can open for us and at the same time it provides us with a first conclusive experience.

I just successfully deployed my first Symfony app on Lambda using Bref.

With all the subnets, VPC, RDS and other AWS scary sounding thingies, and it seems to be working awesome :).

Definitely recommend Matthieu’s talk or workshop, it sure was helpful for me.

LOVED the Bref workshop with Matthieu and here’s why:

1) Great introduction to AWS Lambda

2) Amazing introduction to actually going serverless with PHP

3) Perfect overview of what PHP is actually capable of! 10/10 and would surely attend again!
