Announcing php[cruise]… (Save the Date)
July 01, 2015 @ 11:23:07

php[architect], organizers for both the php[tek] and php[world] conferences has officially announced their latest event - php[cruise].

Well we've already actually announced it at php[tek] 2015, but it's time to start sharing some information about it. Yes, we are going to revive php[cruise], and once again host a conference-cruise for the PHP community. This 7 day cruise will take place from July 17-23, 2016 and leave from the port of Baltimore.

We still have lots of details to work out - but wanted to make sure that everyone was aware of this early! We will be working on making this a family friendly experience. Daycare/kids activities are included in the cost and we are even looking at scheduling some 'teach kids to code' type events.

As mentioned, this new event will be happening in July of 2016 with a tour around the Baltimore, Maryland area for a full seven days. There's currently not a site up for the event, this is just a preliminary announcement for those that didn't hear from the closing remarks at php[tek] this year.

This episode Adam Culp announces the winner, David Stockton (Colorado), of the contest launched in Run Geek Radio episode 004.

Pacific Northwest PHP Conference 2015 Speakers Posted
June 05, 2015 @ 08:48:30

The Pacific Northwest PHPConference, happening later this year in Seattle, Washington, has officially announced their speakers for this inaugural event.

Thank you so much for your submissions to our CfP for the Pacific Northwest PHP (PNWPHP) Conference. We received over 250 submissions from which we had to select less than 30 to fit into the PNWPHP program.

It was hard to choose. There were so many high-quality proposals, but ultimately we made the tough decisions to make sure we included the talks and speakers that we thought would create the best conference program for our audience here in the Pacific Northwest, while also staying within our budget.

Among those slated to speak are several well-known PHP community speakers like Adam Culp, Beau Simensen, Cal Evans, Davey Shafik and Jeremy Mikola. They've also listed out the sessions and their summaries too. You can pick up your tickets now, but act quickly - the Early Bird pricing ends at the end of June!

NetTuts.com:
Building Your Startup With PHP Scheduling a Meeting
April 21, 2015 @ 11:37:52

NetTuts.com continues its "Building Your Startup with PHP" series today in this latest post enhancing the application and allowing the user to add a meeting.

This tutorial is part of the Building Your Startup With PHP series on Tuts+. In this series, I'm guiding you through launching a startup from concept to reality using my Meeting Planner app as a real life example. Every step along the way, we'll release the Meeting Planner code as open source examples you can learn from. We'll also address startup-related business issues as they arise. All of the code for Meeting Planner is written in the Yii2 Framework for PHP.

In this new post (one of four that will deal with adding a meeting) they start by creating the initial meeting listing page that includes a description, last update date and icons linking to actions to perform on that meeting. Next up they create the "Create Meeting" form and the functionality behind the scenes to make it work. This includes some alerting functionality as well. Next is the functionality to invite people to the meetings, using autocomplete handling to make it easier to locate individuals. Following this they include code to add locations (integrating Google Maps), assigning a meeting time and adding additional notes.

Run Geek Radio Launched & Episode 1 (Podcast)
April 21, 2015 @ 10:48:36

Adam Culp, well-known PHP community member and organizer of both the Sunshine PHP conference and ZendCon, has started up a new podcast that's targeted at blending the two things he enjoys most - geeky "stuff" and running.

My plans behind the podcast is to bring together two things I love to do…programming, and running. It only makes sense that I would want to share in both areas, and a podcast is a great way to do that. With the resurgence of podcasts lately I felt a little bit of peer pressure to attempt my own, and so far I have received wonderful reviews from PHP developers who also run, or runners who are also programmers.

You can find out more about the show over on rungeekradio.com or just tune in to the first episode and see what you think. This first show deals with conferences, user group talks and performance audit tools. If you enjoy the show, be sure to subscribe to the feed to get more episodes as they're released.
