Rasmus Lerdorf

I have become a fan of Rasmus Lerdorf. He is the author of first two version of the PHP language. For the last two years, I have been attending his talks in FOSS.in and these talks have been excellent. Last year he talked about cross site scripting and this year the topic was Getting rich with PHP 5.

Please go thru these presentations. Talking about the latter presentation, if you have an idea and you need to develop a website, then to earn from it, you need visitors, and you need lots of them, and to handle say 500000 visitors you need your servers to handle 1700 req/sec. Now he takes you with a development cycle where you take a website developed in PHP from 17 req/sec to 1100 req/sec on a simple desktop like box. Interesting talk and worth read.
