DotVoid's Blog:
The international PHP Conference
November 16, 2005 @ 05:51:20

With a delayed followup to the International PHP Conference, dotvoid has posted this summary over on his blog today.

It's almost a week since I left the PHP conference in Frankfurt. At first I was quite happy with it. It was really nice to get down there and talk to so many nice people.

However, now that I think back, the conference in Frankfurt could have been a lot better. It should have been better considering the money they charge. Most of the sessions were way to shallow and a few were mere walkthroughs of simple code examples that you can read up on in 15 minutes in so many places on the web. Some sessions I attended were more like a two hour introduction into a topic. These beginner sessions have their place in a conference like this but they were too many. Most of the speakers are probably very knowledgeble in their respective area. Unfortunately very few showed it.

In his opinion, there should have been more geared toward the experienced developers, including things like case studies and best practices. That and it seemed to him like more of the conference should have been truely "international" with maybe a few more English-given topics in the list (especially on the Management day)...
