php[architect], the group behind the php[tek] and the php[world] conferences has posted more information about the latest addition to their conference lineup coming in 2016 - php[cruise]. They've launched the full conference site over at cruise.phparch.com
Well we’ve already actually announced it at php[tek] 2015, but it’s time to start sharing some information about it.
Yes, we are going to revive php[cruise], and once again host a conference-cruise for the PHP community. This 7 day cruise will take place from July 17-23, 2016 and leave from the port of Baltimore.
We still have lots of details to work out – but wanted to make sure that everyone was aware of this early! We will be working on making this a family friendly experience. Daycare/kids activities are included in the cost and we are even looking at scheduling some 'teach kids to code' type events.
The cruise will be happening in July 2016 (17th through 24th) and will feature several days of talks as well as plenty of time to enjoy the cruise and evening activities. One thing to note, the cost of the ticket for the conference does not include the cost for the cruise itself. That is paid separate because of the wide variety of accommodations available (and how many will be in your party). One of the goals with this event was to make it as family-friendly as possible, so the schedule isn't wall-to-wall talks like a normal conference. There's plenty of time to enjoy the trip and be with loved ones should they come along.
You can find out more about this conference at sea over on the official php[cruise] website.
