The Madison PHP user group has announced a conference they're putting on in Madison, Wisconsin November 16th - the Madison PHP Conference:
One day, two tracks, loads of fun. Join us for a one day, two track conference that focuses on PHP and related web technologies. This event is organized by Madison PHP and is designed to offer something to attendees at all skill levels. It will be a day of networking, learning, sharing, and great fun! We've carefully crafted two distinct tracks but you're not locked into just one. Attend any talk from any track.
The two tracks will cover both ends of the learning scale - a Professional track for those seasoned PHP developers and a Foundations track for those new to PHP. If you're interested in speaking at this year's event, you can still submit a proposal to their call for papers. If you're just wanting to attend, you can pick up tickets at a discounted "Blind Bird" rate until October 15th, the day before the schedule will be announced. You can also follow them on Facebook for the latest news.
