php[world] Conference Five Amazing Keynotes
August 21, 2014 @ 10:33:24

The php[architect] group has officially announced the five keynote speakers they'll be having at this year's php[world] conference conference.

We are excited to announce today the amazing keynote speakers that we have lined up for our php[world] conference this November. We've worked hard to find the best speakers and talks that cover the breadth of the PHP experience. We want php[world] to be a conference that pulls together all the different fragmented communities of PHP into one place to share ideas, and our keynotes reflect that mission.

The keynote speakers for this year come from a wide range of communities:

  • Luke Stokes: "Turning Your Code Into a Company: The Parts They Don't Tell You."
  • Angela Byron: "Drupal 8: A Story of Growing Up and Getting Off the Island"
  • Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire: "Idealism as code: From philosophy to empowerment"
  • Andrew Nacin: "Trust, Community, and Automatic Updates"

The final "keynote" is actually a panel of seven developers representing some of the major projects in the PHP ecosystem: WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Joomla!, Symfony, Laravel, and Zend Framework. You can find out more about these keynotes here or just check out the conference on the main conference site.

Know Thy Conference - Know The EndPoint API Conference
August 05, 2014 @ 13:55:21

The 7PHP.com site has a new interview posted with Ivo Jansch about a conference this year that's not specifically targeted at PHP developers but is inclusive of them: EndPoint API Conference. The interview touches on topics such as the origin of the conference, what some of the goals are and some of Ivo's own background.

This conference is all about APIs. We use more and more smart devices in our daily lives and many of these devices communicate with the internet by ways of APIs. Once, the web was the dominant way of consuming content, but these days it's all about smart devices. Watches, Glasses, TVs - I can see a future where every device becomes smart and can run apps.

This means that web development is experiencing a major shift. Websites become clients too, just like other apps. This means developers need to start thinking more in client/server terms, and we think Endpoint can help developers do that as efficiently as possible.

Ivo also answers other questions about:

  • Where the motivation for the conference came from
  • What kind of attendance they're expecting
  • What kinds of opportunities it offers
  • Where it excels/lacks compared to other similar events
  • If it could be an inspiration for a user group to start up

Check out the full interview for answers to these and more questions about this new conference. You can also find out more about the conference itself on the event's website.

Snipe.net:
Why You Should Stop Stalling and Start Presenting
June 13, 2014 @ 11:47:01

In her latest post Snipe does her best to motivate those out there that have thought about speaking or presenting at a technology conference but are "stalling" and finding excuses not to. The post pulls from some of her own past experiences as a speaker in various communities, PHP and otherwise.

My last post generated a bit of buzz when it was posted to HackerNews recently, so I figured I'd take this opportunity to reiterate something I've been saying on Twitter for a while now. If you have never presented a conference before, make this the year you change that.

She breaks the rest of the post up into different reasons to stop making excuses and just do it:

  • It is an incredible experience that makes you better at other things
  • You will meet great people and learn about their experiences
  • Even if you suck the first time, it really is okay, even if it doesn't feel like it at the time
  • It's great for your career
  • If you are part of an underrepresented minority, your peers need to see you on that stage
  • Your audience is actually far more forgiving than you imagine
  • You're smarter than you think. Things that are obvious to you are not obvious to everyone else
  • It feels really fucking awesome talking about stuff you care about

She also shares a few panic-aversion tactics she's worked up over the years including starting small, working with "power poses" and a reminder to use the "presenter view" feature in your presentation software of choice.
