The panel will be lead by Ian Barber development manager at Virgin Management who lead the direction of all Virgin companies. They will be discussing using PHP in high volume environments, the choices people made and why the made them.
The event takes place on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th February 2012 at the Business Design Centre, London.
