ZendCon 2015 Call for Papers Opens
April 02, 2015 @ 12:49:37

Zend has announce the official opening of the Call for Papers for ZendCon 2015, their annual PHP and technology conference. Instead of their usual venue in California, though, they'll be holding the event in Las Vegas, Nevada from October 19th through the 22nd.

We're pleased to announce the ZendCon 2015 PHP Conference, the most anticipated PHP centric event of the year, where community and enterprise PHP developers from around the world gather to share and learn the latest hot trends and technologies in today's professional PHP development.

We know speakers are key to the success of a conference and hope you will submit a talk. In appreciation for the efforts provided, our speakers package ensures they will not need to worry about anything other than delivering the best talks.

While ZendCon is put on by Zend (a company largely focused on PHP) they accept talks on more than just PHP-related topics. You can find out more about the conference in previous years (and some of the topics that were accepted) on the main conference site. The Call for Papers ends on May 15th so be sure to get those submissions in early and often!

July 23, 2014 @ 10:50:48

The site has posted their latest PHP community interview. This time it's with a group from the Las Vegas PHP User Group about their community and group. The interview talks to Adam Englander, one of the organizers of the group.

This is the #4th set of 'Know Thy PHP Usergroup' in an attempt to create more awareness of: what is $this PHP UG about + get to know the leaders/Founders/Community behind it and what is a PHP User Group in general to personally know all the PHP user groups Around The World - that excites me and I hope you too! This concept is also a good opportunity for new #elePHPants to know about PHP UGs. [...] The Las Vegas PHP Users Group is a group dedicated to PHP developers learning from and teaching each other. [...] All skill levels are sought after. If you are looking to teach, learn, network, or just mingle, join the group and participate on the adventure.

They cover a lot of topics about the group including things like:

  • How the group started
  • How often they meet
  • What was their largest meeting attendance
  • Challenges in finding sponsors
  • How it's different than other user groups

Check out the full interview for the answers to these and other interesting questions.

April 11, 2008 @ 08:58:41

Mike Lively has made the announcement that the Las Vegas area finally has its own user group:

I am pleased to announce that Las Vegas finally has a PHP User Group and our first meeting is...tomorrow. I am pretty excited as I know there is a fairly decent size PHP programmer community in LV, it just hasn't been organized yet.

Their meeting is later today (April 11th) at 4pm at PT's Pub east of I15 and south of 215. It's an "anything goes" sort of even so expect to come, socialize and meet up with lots of great developers from the area.
