For those that couldn't attend this year's New York PHP Conference that happened back in June, this new 'review' of the conference from Timothy Boronczyk might give you a glimpse into the goings on there.
I attended the New York PHP Conference held in New York City, June 12 - June 16, 2006. Pre-conference training sessions were schedule for the first two days and the remaining days were for the conference itself.
Timothy covers the parts of the conference he was able to attend, including a beginner's PHP class (by Jeff Siegel), a two-day overview of the language and plenty of examples to back that knowledge up. Once the conference began, he moved to a class from Jay Pipes, "Maximum Velocity MySQL". Other talks he also attended included "PHP Rocking in the Windows World", "Quercus: A 100% Clean Room Implementation of PHP in Java", "Metaprogramming with PHP".
For his opinions on all of these talks (and more), check out the full review on the Codewalkers.com site.
