Spurred on by a rejection notice he recieved from Zend for the upcoming Zend/PHP Conference & Expo, Terry Chay has written up some thoughts on the process he went through to make the submission and on one of Zend's key words these days - "enterprise".
Ahh, the standard rejection letter! But how I got it is anything but standard and that's what I want to muse about in this article.
He talks about a few of the small things that bothered him, like the lack of an online registration for the submission of talks and how difficult Zend seemed to make it:
In other words, my problem is with Zend, the girl in school who begs you to ask her out to the high school dance just so she can turn you down.
Terry then gets into the whole "enterprise" term that floats around Zend and how they seem to be relaying the message that, despite all indicators to the contrary, those that "hang out" with Zend will be the ones that make it.
There's tons more that Terry says in this great new post, so be sure to check it out and enjoy the read.
