Matthew Setter:
PHP South Coast 2015
Jul 23, 2015 @ 09:55:46

For those that weren't able to attend this year's PHP South Coast conference (in Portsmouth, UK) Matthew Setter has posted a wrap up of some of his experiences there and what the conference was like.

I’m on the train heading to Stansted airport, after what I can only describe as a brilliant weekend in Portsmouth, attending the inaugural PHP South Coast, conference. I’ve not been to Portsmouth for 10 years, but the wait was well worth it.

He talks about the venue where the conference was held and some of the talks that were given during the day long event. There were two tracks so, unfortunately, he wasn't able to attend all of the talks but he does provide summaries for those he was able to attend. He also spotlights the opening keynote from Cal Evans about the importance of community and how it relates to your career. He ends the post talking about something he found quite valuable: meeting people, both those he knew from online and others just attending the event.

BarCampMelbourne2008 Rundown

Kathy Ried has posted about some of her experience (including being a speaker) at this year's BarCampMelbourne 2008:

BarCampMelbourne2008 was, simply put, AWESOME! BarCampMelbourne2008 was held at Thoughtworks [wikipedia] at 155 Queen Street, Melbourne on 23 Feb 08, and had approximately 60 in attendance.

She talks not only about the conference itself (the male vs female attendance, the presence of Apple laptops and the age of attendees) as well as her talk on the advancement of practices at her workplace and other talks like an intro to APhpLix and how to use PHP Under Control.
