On the agenda: Processing 1brc in PHP #

The One Billion Row Challenge is initially an exploration of how quickly 1B rows from a text file can be aggregated using Java. In a previous blog post, Florian explained that he wanted to experiment with how fast PHP can perform this task. He will demonstrate this at the conference and provide you with the opportunity to learn about optimizing the performance of PHP software along the way.
