On the php|architect site today Keith Casey has posted a ZendCon pre-cap (the conference starts today in Santa Clara, CA) talking about some of what's to come during the week for attendees - five sessions he personally is interested in.
Yet again, it's that time of year. Later today we have the kick off of the seventh ZendCon (officially called the Zend PHP Conference). This year I'm hitting the event under the php|architect banner as press. It will be my job to cover the good, the bad, the news, the chaos, and generally the things that come from the conference that might change your job on a day to day basis.
From the 70ish sessions being presented over the next few days, he highlights ones dealing with scaling applications with Redis, event-driven programming, dependency injection, character sets and API security. If you have been planning on attending and getting in on some of these great sessions, there's still time - you can still pick up a ticket at the door of the Santa Clara Convention Center.
