A new PHP-oriented conference has been announce, but this one has a bit of a twist. Weca.mp is taking place on an island and, instead of passively listening to speakers, attendees will "develop awesome stuff" with PHP.
WeCamp is a new event focusing on not just hearing about cool technology, but also applying it. During the 5 days of the event, you'll get to work on a project together with 4 random other people, under the guidance of an experienced coach. Together with your team mates, you'll work on improving both your technical skills while developing on the project as well as your soft-skills in managing the project and communicating with your team members.
The focus of the event is different than the usual conference-goer might be used to. It puts an emphasis on a work/relaxation mix with several activities besides things tech-related. Attendees will share tents ("glamping" style) with others for each evening of this five-day event and several "coaches" will be on hand to help guide activities.
