PHPNW11 Conference Report - Part II
October 28, 2011 @ 10:15:27

On the Ibuildings techPortal Marco De Bortoli has posted the second part of his summary of this year's PHP North West conference (you can find the first part here). In this part he briefly discusses the tutorial day and the main conference, including the sessions he attended.

This was a very social event from day one, warm and funny with a horde of geeks trying to mix with "normal people" (yes, that can happen if you attend the PHPNW conference, so try not to miss it next year). The best thing about PHP conferences is knowledge-sharing; you won't leave without a hundred different thoughts and ideas of how to do things better. Once again - definitely a good time, both personally and professionally. If you weren't there, you missed out!

The sessions he specifically mentions include the "Security" talk from Arne Blankerts, "Maintainable Applications in PHP Using Components" by Stuart Herbert, "PHP Extensions, why and what?" by Derick Rethans and "Acceptance & Integration Testing Using Behat" from Ben Waine.

PHPNW11 Conference Report
October 20, 2011 @ 10:22:31

Marco Lopes has posted a wrapup of the PHP North West conference that he recently attended in Manchester. In it he talks about the tutorial sessions he attended the first day as well as the other shorter sessions later in the conference. His is the first summary of several Ibuildings employees that made it to the event.

He covers the content presented by Arne Blankerts (of ThePHP.cc) about general applications security. His session covered security on various levels, not just in the PHP code - hardware, XSS, session hijacking, captchas, database issues and clickjacking. Marco's afternoon was spent at Lorna Mitchell's web services tutorial. Sessions attended on Day 1 included the keynote from Ian Barber, Sebastian Marek and Rowan Merewood.

PHPNW11 Blind Bird Tickets Closing Soon
June 14, 2011 @ 10:12:50

Philip Norton reminds you that the "Blind Bird" pricing for tickets to this year's PHP North West conference is almost coming to a close - the speaker list will be announced soon!

According to the PHPNW11 blog they had a 50% increase in paper submissions from PHPNW10, which means there will be an excellent range of talks on offer, but also a lot of papers to review before deciding on the schedule. So if you want to get in the bargain price of £75 for a fantastic two day conference then you had better get your tickets as soon as you can. After this week the early bird tickets will be released and the price will increase.

You can pick up both the Blind Bird and Tutorial day tickets right now from the ticket page of the PHPNW11 site.

PHP North West 2011
June 07, 2011 @ 09:45:18

Lorna Mitchell has a new post today about this year's PHP North West conference happening October 7th through 9th in Manchester, UK. She talks some about the current status of the event and how it'll be structured.

e might still be in the thick of the summer conference season, but there's an event coming up this autumn which has me very excited: PHP North West 2011. This is a regional PHP conference based in Manchester, UK, and I've been involved with it since it began (I'm surprised to find this is our fourth edition, it still feels like a shiny new adventure!). This year the dates are 8th and 9th of October and with an added tutorial day on the Friday, it is bigger (and of course better) than ever.

She points out the current Call for Papers that are open for submission and notes that the deadline is very soon - June 12th. She mentions the Tutorial Day with topics covering Zend Framework 2, security, Drupal performance and her web services tutorial. You can currently pick up tickets for the "blind bird" price of £72. For more information, see the main conference site.

Announcing The PHPNW 2011 Conference
May 04, 2011 @ 10:44:36

In a new post to his blog today Philip Norton has made his announcement about this year's PHP North West Conference 2011 happening October 7th through 9th in Manchester, UK.

I have attended the last 3 PHPNW conferences and they have all been of a very high standard in virtually every way. [...] The conference will be split over two days on the 8th and 9th of October with 3 full tracks on the Saturday and 2 tracks on the Sunday. There will also be lots of coffee breaks and there is usually a free bar in the evening of the Saturday.

Tickets aren't on sale yet for the event, but it shouldn't be too long before the Early Bird pricing is announced. Potential sponsors can find more information here and you can keep up with the latest by following @phpnw11 on Twitter.

Lorna Mitchell's Blog:
PHPNW TestFest
May 12, 2009 @ 12:57:42

Lorna Mitchell has posted about her own experiences at her local TestFest as hosted by the PHP North West group in Manchester.

Yesterday saw the PHP North West User Group hold their first Test Fest in Manchester. As a relatively young user group (at less than a year old) with not a single @php.net email address between us, this was an ambitious venture. Scott MacVicar very kindly offered to come and be our mentor - to show us around PHP and get us started writing tests, and in fact he did very well and everyone was able to begin quite quickly.

She mentions the fourteen attendees, eighty-four tests created and the encouragement it gave for those developers to write even more. You can see photos taken at the event here.
