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.
