Matt Frost:
Getting Talks Selected
January 27, 2014 @ 09:04:23

If you're considering getting into the world of speaking at an upcoming PHP conference, Matt Frost has some advice for you to help you get started. It can be intimidating, so learn from some of his own experiences as a relatively new speaker in the community.

It's a very busy conference season in and around the PHP Community. [...] These conferences are such a blessing to those who are able to attend, the speakers know their stuff and are very open to sharing and talking outside of their sessions. But you're a smart cookie too! You've got ideas and thoughts and knowledge that other people would like to have, so how do you get in on this? I'm going to tell you how I got into it, your mileage may vary, but hopefully it helps.

He points out that submitting a talk and getting accepted is "a lot like the lotto" sometimes, that you can't win unless you buy a ticket (submit that talk). He looks at a few of the other common questions from beginning speakers - what do I talk about, how do I write an abstract and common first time speaking concerns.

There's no magical elixir that will land you speaking gigs at cool conferences. Everyone that speaks, from the seasoned pro to the up and comer, has worked extremely hard to not only put the talks together; but acquire all the knowledge necessary to give the talk in the first place

Speaker Interview - Stefan Priebsch
August 13, 2013 @ 10:19:18

The Web & PHP Conference site has posted a mini-interview with Stefan Priebsch, one of the speakers at their upcoming conference.

Over the past week we've been taking a moment to get to know a little more about the speakers we have lined up for Web & PHP Con 2013. We know they're a great bunch of people but we want you to know that too! So what better way to get to know a little bit about them, their session and what they're most looking forward to at the event than with a short Q & A. So, without further ado, let us introduce Stefan Priebsch.

He answers questions about the talks he'll be presenting, how he first got involved in development and what he's looking forward to most about the event. You can find out more about the conference on its site including dates and how to register for free entry.

Speaker & Attendee Feedback Of The Previous Laravel4 Talk Of NomadPHP June 2013
July 08, 2013 @ 09:42:12

7PHP.com has a new post that shares some of the feedback - from both the speaker and other attendees - of the latest Nomad PHP meeting featuring Phil Sturgeon talking on Laravel 4.

Previously on thursday 27th July 2013 (8pm CDT), NomadPHP hosted their 2nd talk which was about "Laravel 4" - the speaker being Phil Sturgeon. I also announced my 2nd free ticket giveaway for this online event - a generosity awesomely made possible by the ever-awesome @NomadPHP organizer; Cal Evans. In this short (as compared to the previous one) article, the spotlight will be on the speaker and an attendee. I'm thankful to both for their responses and sharing their NomadPHP experience with us. We'll also have a quick (as in very quick) glance at the ticket winners.

The article starts with some of the feedback from Phil and his observations from the speaker side of things. This is followed by the attendee perspective from Don Gilbert, a maintainer of the Joomla framework. They talk about the goods and bads of the presentation and things they think the virtual user group could improve on in the future.

A new PHP conference has just been announced to the community - the True North PHP Conference (2012). The event will be held in Toronto, Ontario November 2nd and 3rd and is currently running their open Call for Papers.

We are firm believers that the PHP community is second to none. We also believe that Toronto has an awesome PHP community and deserves an equally awesome conference. Those beliefs are what inspired us to create True North PHP, a conference designed to showcase Toronto's talent and give back to the community that has given us so much.

If you're interested in speaking, you can find out more and submit your topics or, if you're just interested in attending, you can already pick up your Early Bird tickets.

Lorna Mitchell's Blog:
Fetching Your Talks from the Joind.In API
June 11, 2012 @ 08:31:30

If you're a speaker (or even if you're not and just want to play with the API) and have information on Joind.in, Lorna Mitchell has a quick way you can pull you information from the site into an easy to use format.

I've recently been thinking that I should also do a better job of linking through to the various talks I'm giving/have given - and at around the same time I was contacted by the good folk at mojoLive about integrating against joind.in. To cut a long story short, the joind.in API now has the functionality for users to retrieve their list of talks!

Her example just uses a file_get_contents to pull the data from the remote URL in a JSON format. You don't need to be logged in to get to the talk information, though, so you won't need to bother with OAuth for this one. A snippet to loop through the results is also included.
