Four Training Courses Available

We’ve added some extra training courses to this year’s php[tek] conference.  Last year we had only one training course, “Jump Start PHP”.  But this year we are offering four separate training classes.  We also are allowing registrations for Training Day Only this year due to popular demand (though of course the training costs more when purchased that way, as it isn’t prorated to take into account conference registration).

The classes offered this year are:

Schedule Posted

Given the 620 submissions it was a very hard process, but we managed to turn it into a schedule full of amazing talks!

We’ve posted the Full Conference Schedule as well as the Speaker Page now.  Head over there to check out what the conference lineup looks like for php[tek] 2015!
A big thanks to everyone who submitted.  For those who didn’t get accepted this year please keep trying, we could have filled four schedules like this with amazing talks and not diminished the quality.

Call for Papers Ended with 620 Submissions!

That’s right, we received 620 submissions—a new record—to the call for papers for php[tek] 2015 this year.  (This came in from 171 speakers, making an average of 3.6 submissions from each speaker).

We now have the daunting task of rating all of those submissions and deciding what makes the cut and what doesn’t.  From looking at the submissions already, there’s enough amazing talks in there to put on 3 or 4 separate conferences, so we have a painful process ahead.

Thanks to everyone for all the great looking papers! We are going to work on getting the schedule out as soon as possible from this so that people can start making travel plans as needed.

Training Courses Available

We will be once again offering a Training Day at php[tek] 2015 as we did last year; however, this year we are offering three separate training courses to choose from:

Jump Start PHP

  • A great one-day introduction to the PHP programming language. Whether you are brand new to programming or switching over from another language, this class will get you up to speed fast and prepared to learn more during the rest of the week.

Web Security Training

  • A compressed one-day version of our online training.  This course covers all the basics you need to know in how to create secure applications.  Learn about CSRF, XSS, SQL Injection, password protection and many more topics.

PHP Foundations for Drupal 8

  • Do you use Drupal daily?  The Drupal community is embracing improvements and best practices from the wider PHP ecosystem, so you’ll need to be prepared! This course is designed for Drupal developers and will guide you through modern practices for programming with PHP, focusing on what you need to know for Drupal 8.

Any one of these class is available as a conference add-on for only $150, or as a standalone training ticket for $300.  Don’t worry if you can’t make up your mind yet as to which class you want to take.  You can change your mind that morning (or even half-way through a class if you want).

Welcome to php[tek] 2015

teaseBigIt’s that time of year again!  No, I don’t mean the holiday season.  I mean it’s time for the php[tek] 2015 Call for Papers.  We have big plans this year to be the biggest best php[tek] ever.  In fact, last year we were already starting to bump elbows, so this year we are going to be setting an attendance max.  So you may want to go ahead and register early to make sure you get a ticket before we sell out!

If you’ve just found out about php[tek] and didn’t know about it in the past.  Welcome!  You may want to check out our About page to understand more about this unique conference, as well as take a look at last year’s conference website, to see more details about previous year’s schedules.
