The first PHP Community Conference will be held right here in Nashville on April 21-22, 2011. Inspired by conferences like Webstock and Brooklyn Beta, the event is designed for people who care about PHP and what they make with it.
The conference is organized by Ben Ramsey, VP of Engineering at Nashville-based Moontoast, along with Lisa Denlinger and Nicholas Sloan, who aim to inspire people to make great things with PHP.
"We believe the PHP community is just about the friendliest group around, and we're going to be sharing stories of successes, failures, and lessons learned along the way. Because this is our first conference, we're hoping you'll join us, roll up your sleeves, and help make this something we can all be proud of."
The PHP Community Conference is a two-day event. Thursday will feature a tutorial day to introduce tools and ideas that you can use in your code right away. The second day will consist of presentations that will inspire you to create something new with PHP. Lunch and snacks will be provided on both days.
The conference will conclude Friday night with a party featuring pecha kucha talks by attendees. The best pecha kucha talks will have a chance at winning one of two iPad 2s sponsored by CakeDC. See the conference schedule for a complete list of sessions and times.
Admission to the entire event is $300. Check out the attendee list and register to attend.
