My maiden voyage (Pfcongres 2011)

Pim Elshoff has a new post to his blog about his experience at this year's PfCongres event (joining other summaries from a speaker and another attendee).

Saturday September 17th, starting at about 9am, the conference hosted a series of talks concerning PHP and related web technologies. Topics varied from tech updates to PHP internals to CSS. [...] I enjoyed most of the talks, even though I didn’t learn too much. It was a good chance to meet people and talk about our mutual interests, problems and of course solutions [...] My experience was very positive; I will definitely visit more congresses if I get the chance.

Talks he attended included:

Michaelangelo van Dam' Blog:
Pfcongres 2011 wrap up

Michaelangelo van Dam attended this year's Pfcongres conference [joind.in] and has shared some of his thoughts and reflections about the event in a new post to his blog.

This Saturday I started early to go to Pfcongres, a small PHP community conference in Utrecht organized by the Dutch PHP user group PHPFreakz and after about two hours driving I arrived about half an hour in time before the conference started, with me kick starting with my keynote "Community Works", a 199 slide deck explaining what the PHP community is and how people can be part of that community.

He talks briefly about the good (a good balance for Dutch/Non-Dutch speakers), the bad (his early start time, heh) and an inevitable part of any large event - the ugly (wifi issues). Overall, though, he enjoyed the event and praised it as a good example of what a small community can do to provide quality at a low price.
