Phil Sturgeon:
CICONF - Mission Complete
August 21, 2012 @ 10:24:21

In a new post to his site, Phil Sturgeon has a wrapup of CICONF (the CodeIgniter conference) that just finished in San Francisco:

This year the low-to-middle budget CodeIgniter Conference was held in San Francisco in a brilliant co-working space called Citizen Space. I didn't know at the time but this space is actually a partner of New Work City, the venue for CICON2011, so it was great to "keep it in the family".

He goes on to talk about some of the speakers that were at the even and gives summaries of the sessions as they were given. Topics included Paas (PagodaBox, specifically), Chef, Varnish, RESTful APIs and productivity with the CI framework. If you weren't able to attend, you can find slides and some videos of the event posted on its Lanyrd page.

Phil Sturgeon's Blog:
CodeIgniter Conference 2012 SF
May 31, 2012 @ 11:58:05

Phil Sturgeon has posted a reminder about this year's CodeIgniter Conference San Francisco for 2012, happening August 11th and 12th at the Citizen Space.

So only two months until the return of CICONF to America! Last year was CICONF2011 NY which was a great experience. There we announced the availability of CodeIgniter on GitHub, released CodeIgniter 2.1-dev and saw over 50 pull requests get made to CodeIgniter by developers trying to win my iPad. Then we had CICONF2012 in London, and now it's off to San Francisco for more CodeIgniter nerdery.

He also mentions speakers that will be presenting at the event including Aaron Kuzemchak, Calvin Froedge and Kenny Katzguru. He'll also be speaking, giving a session (no update on what it'll be about though).

If you're interested in attending the event, you can find out more information on the conference site (and order your tickets!)

CICONF '12 Speaker List
December 14, 2011 @ 08:31:32

The CICONF (CodeIgniter conference) group has made a new post about the lineup for their next event including people like Adam Griffiths, Alex Bilbie, Alexis Serneels, Harrow "WanWizard" Verton, Nick Jackson and Tyler Flint.

The chances are if you are using a library, addon, Spark or tutorial for your CodeIgniter projects it will have been written by one of these guys. Adam Griffiths wrote the book, Alex Bilbie has made some amazing OAuth 2 and Mongo code, WanWizard wrote DataMapper ORM - the most popular ORM used with CodeIgniter - and I've [Phil Sturgeon] released a few blogs about CI over the years.

They'll be doing the double-event conferences this year again - this time they'll be in London (February 18th-19th and San Francisco at a yet to be determined date). If you'd like to attend the London sessions, you can already purchase your tickets - a student pass for £35 and a standard ticket for £45.

Zend Developer Zone:
The HackForGood Evenings - San Francisco
May 23, 2011 @ 10:05:01

On the Zend Developer Zone David Coallier has a post about an effort starting up in San Francisco called the HackForGood Evening where developers come together to work on software with the sole purpose of helping make the lives of other people better (those who can't do for themselves).

Starting from there we realised that the idea and purpose of writing software to help the lives of the people around us was exactly what we are about but more importantly, this was an idea that should happen more than once. The HackForGood evenings were born. The following day, we decided to put a simple descriptive page together and organised the event on Eventbrite. Once this was in place we plainly announced it on Twitter to see who would be interested. After having received over 30 signups in 2 hours, we knew that we had hit a nerve and decided to make this event a success.

He goes on to talk about the evening - the presentation of the sponsors, the split off of the groups and the work (hours of it) that was done to create things like the winning entry - 911Stealth, a mobile app for contacting local emergency services when you are unable to use your voice.
