Parthenon is now available under GPLv3 and the Skeleton Application is available under the MIT License. When I was doing sales calls with companies about Parthenon part of the risk factor was what if I decided this project wasn't viable as a business. Every time, I said I would open source the code and continue to work on it. Well, I decided a year ago that I needed to change my approach and focus on a single area instead of trying to solve lots of problems as Parthenon does. So I created BillaBear, which uses Parthenon, to focus on billing. Which is actually building the billing system I want ..read more

Parthenon Blog

In software development, free open-source software (FOSS) has always been important and without FOSS, IT would not be the same as it is today. It is hard to think of a company in this world today that isn’t relying on FOSS for part of its tech stack. For many developers, FOSS is a major part of being a developer and they feel like contributing to FOSS is something they, as a good developers, must do. Some loath the idea of commercial software. So it’s with this in mind, we feel like we should explain why we choose not to use the FOSS model. Instead, we have gone for commercial licensing. We wa ..read more

I've started to document the design decisions made for Parthenon. One of the main decisions made was to make classes that aren't meant to be extended to be final. There are many schools of thought when it comes to development. With many people having different opinions about when and why to use final classes, I thought I would add my opinion to the mix. Decision​ The decision was made to make classes that aren't meant to be extended final. All final classes should have an interface that matches their publicly available methods. Open/Closed Principle​ Some people like SOLID principles, and some ..read more

I'm month two into my 6-month project to build 6 SaaS applications in 6 months. I started work on the 2nd SaaS a month ago, and it's Blether.chat - a GDPR Compliant Live Chat that integrates with Slack. How did I come up with the idea for Blether? I hate cookie consent banners so I don't want to have them on my site, but at the same time, I wanted to be able to chat with potential customers for Parthenon. Therefore I needed one that would allow me to do that without adding a cookie banner. The answer is Blether. Development​ In the past, I had been able to create an MVP in about 7-days, mainly ..read more

From 204 requests per second to 480 with a single configuration change

I'm currently developing a cookieless Free Live Chat SaaS - Blether.chat and as part of the development process, I decided to stress test the application and really see the difference PHP OP Cache preload made to the request per second in a real-world application. This led me down a path that resulted in me making a configuration change unrelated to the OP Cache resulting in an almost 100% increase in throughput and adding 200+ requests per second to my server's capabilities. What is PHP OP Cache? First, I'll quickly explain what the OP Cache in PHP is and what preload is. PHP is an interprete ..read more
