At the Intersection of PHP and Microsoft
My “PHP on Windows” presentation at the Dutch PHP Conference (presented today…whew!) focused on the recent improvements in interoperability between PHP and Microsoft Technologies (my slides are attached to this post). If you attended, please rate my presentation at http://joind.in/1650. There was no way I could have covered all the improvements that have been made in the last couple of years, so I chose three: improvements in IIS (FastCGI features and WinCache), SQL Server Reporting Services (using the SSRS SDK for PHP), and Microsoft’s cloud offerings (Windows Azure and SQL Azure). A couple of sub-topics were the SQL Server Driver for PHP (which makes moving an application to a SQL Azure backend easy) and all the PHP-related tools that are available on CodePlex. Even though I only focused on three areas, I felt like I had to fly through the presentation. So, in case I went too fast through the last couple of slides (or in case you weren’t there at all), here is the list of resources from my presentation:
I hope those are helpful.

Hi Brian, thanks for explaining.
I think it is a good step for Microsoft to improve performance of PHP on Windows. Thanks for the demonstration at the convention.
