Solution Consultant // Software Developer
Who am I?

"A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I’m Jan Burkl, and I’ve spent my more than 15 years of programming experience in developing web-based software, furthermore in consulting accounts in different industry verticals setting up high-quailty software solutions.

I’m a passionate believer in the technical progress, if it's seen as a driver for efficiency, security and comfort. In this context Cloud, IoT and Big Data are not just hype topics - utilized in the right ways they perfectly make sense to achieve these goals.

Make life smarter.

Webinars

Speaking to the Cloud.

Building Continuous Delivery with Bamboo and Zend Server

In this webinar Jan Burkl will demonstrate how you can package a PHP application in Atlassian Bamboo, and deploy it on test, staging and production system running Zend Server. As monitoring is an important part of a Continuous Delivery process, you can also learn how to get Zend Server Monitoring data back into your CI system.

Jenkins

Continuous Delivery helps companies release applications faster and with greater quality by streamlining and automating the process of bringing software from code to production. Join CloudBees and Zend to learn key practices of implementing Continuous Delivery for PHP applications in the enterprise. Jan Burkl will demo deployment features for PHP applications with Zend while Harpreet will talk about building a resilient Jenkins infrastructure to deliver the pipeline.

An overview and demo of Deployment features with Zend Server and CloudBees DEV@cloud (Jenkins in the cloud)

Zend Server SDK: Remote control your App Server

Zend Server has a powerful and intuitive GUI, but if actions should be executed recurringly or automated by any other piece of software, a GUI is not the right way to accomplish that. See in this webinar how to use the Zend Server SDK, an open source tool implemented by the Zend Global Services team, in order to bootstrap and configure your server/cluster, display monitoring data and even deploy an application from a remote server.

Jan Burkl bietet mit seinem Cookbook eine detaillierte Auseinandersetzung mit dem neuen Framework. Er ermöglicht damit einen schnellen Einstieg, der mögliche Hürden direkt verhindert und einen Eindruck davon vermittelt, wie angenehm und vorteilhaft ein Projekt mit ZF2 funktionieren kann.

Cloud hier, Cloud da, Cloud überall. Irgendwie kann beim Durchforsten verschiedener Foren der Eindruck entstehen, dass die Cloud ein Standing zwischen “das Böse an sich” und “unnützes Zeug” erlangt hat. Doch wir zeigen Ihnen, welchen Mehrwert die Zend Developer Cloud für PHP-Entwickler bietet – und wie Sie sie in Ihrer IDE nutzen können.

Im Rahmen des im Juni vorgestellten Zend Server 7 hat Zend Technologies ein neues Feature für Entwickler präsentiert: Z-Ray, eine vom Applikationscode unabhängige Browser-Toolbar, die sich in den HTML-Output einklinkt und vielfältige Informationen des gerade ausgeführten Requests preisgibt.

As a PHP developer, you work with your favorite IDE for eight hours every single day, so it is absolutely necessary to understand what can be achieved by all the features Zend Studio provides – and what should be avoided. I’d like to quote Roy Ganor, Former Project Lead Zend Studio, who said “You have to master your IDE!”

Please find a selection below.

  • Zend Server Bamboo


    Deploy PHP Apps in CI

    Thanks to the plugin PHP apps can be deployed continuously in a standard manner to a Zend Server cluster. Browse the Java-Code at github.com/janatzend

  • Z-Ray


    Advanced Debugging

    Z-Ray allows to enhance the debugging experience without leaving the workflow. Z-Ray Extensions for Redis, MariaDB and OPCache can be found at github.com/janatzend

    Control your home

    A collection of tools and custom software (not published yet) that allow me to control the house, but even more interesting: the house is able to control itself. Powered by AngularJS, Ionic, Node Red, Apigility, Mosquitto, OpenHAB and more.

    My talk Control your Home with PHP is a snapshot about this 'long-term' project.
