Pacific Northwest PHP Conference | Sneak Glance At The Pre-Event!
Sep 01, 2015 @ 09:09:17

In another in their series of interviews about people and things happening in the PHP community, the 7php.com site has posted a sneak peak of the Pacific Northwest PHP Conference and interviews one of the organizers, Jeremy Lindblom.

Khayrattee Wasseem talks with Jeremy about some of his work with the Seattle PHP User Group and where he'll be working in the near future (the Engrade team at McGraw-Hill Education). He also answers questions about:

  • What the conference is about and when it was first launched
  • Where the idea came from and what some of the objectives are
  • How the feedback has been so far
  • Who else has been on the team helping organize the event (and provided advice)
  • How they're handing sponsors and what challenges came around that

Jeremy also shares a message to thinking about attending the conference:

I honestly believe that everyone who attends, both in person and online is going to have a good experience, learn new things, and make new friends. My hope is that you will feel the strength of the PHP community and have a desire to contribute back to it afterwards.

Pacific Northwest PHP Conference 2015 Speakers Posted
Jun 05, 2015 @ 08:48:30

The Pacific Northwest PHPConference, happening later this year in Seattle, Washington, has officially announced their speakers for this inaugural event.

Thank you so much for your submissions to our CfP for the Pacific Northwest PHP (PNWPHP) Conference. We received over 250 submissions from which we had to select less than 30 to fit into the PNWPHP program.

It was hard to choose. There were so many high-quality proposals, but ultimately we made the tough decisions to make sure we included the talks and speakers that we thought would create the best conference program for our audience here in the Pacific Northwest, while also staying within our budget.

Among those slated to speak are several well-known PHP community speakers like Adam Culp, Beau Simensen, Cal Evans, Davey Shafik and Jeremy Mikola. They've also listed out the sessions and their summaries too. You can pick up your tickets now, but act quickly - the Early Bird pricing ends at the end of June!

Announcing the Pacific Northwest PHP Conference (Seattle, WA)
Jan 29, 2015 @ 11:53:08

The Seattle PHP User Group has decided to follow along with the example set by many other PHP user groups in the past several years. They have officially announced the Pacific Northwest PHP Conference and a Kickstarter campaign to help raise the funding to help make it a reality.

The Seattle PHP User Group (SeaPHP) has been around for over 10 years. We love PHP, and we want to build up our local PHP community even further by hosting a PHP developer conference here in Seattle—the technology hub of the Pacific Northwest and cloud computing capital of the world. We invite PHP developers everywhere, and of all skill levels, to come learn, network, and hack together with us in the Emerald City at the first Pacific Northwest PHP Conference (PNWPHP).

The goal of the campaign is to raise some of the initial funding needed to generate more interest for the event, presell tickets and even attract sponsors. The conference itself is planned for September 11th and 12th of 2015 there in Seattle, Washington at the Impact Hub coworking space. If you'd like more information about the conference and updates as they come along, be sure to subscribe to their mailing list and consider helping the PHP conference community grow and contribute today!
