Location & Hotel

php[tek] 2015 will once again take place at the Sheraton Gateway Suites O’Hare in Chicago.  The conference hotel is located within a very short distance of  O’Hare Airport (a free shuttle is provided—simply follow the directions for pick-up at the airport). In fact, you can reach it from downtown Chicago by using the El just by taking the Blue Line to the airport and then taking advantage of the free shuttle.
