PHPUK 2017

In less than a week, I'll be boarding a plane heading to the twelfth annual PHPUK conference. PHPUK is one of the largest PHP conferences in the world and boasts a strong lineup of talks including topics around new PHP features, community, hosting, performance, security, and even dealing with people.

One talk I’m particularly looking forward to is entitled “Towards a framework-less world” where Michael Cullum speaks to the growing trend of micro-libraries and framework agnostic code.

The fun will be hosted at The Brewery, which has been serving brews and hosting events since the mid-eighteenth;'  century! This venue is large enough to host three tracks at once, that means for any one time slot there are three talk options for you to choose from. The camaraderie that comes with a shared understanding of the problems we all face as PHP developers and the shared experience of learning and teaching is humbling, to say the least. Even with all the learning and teaching, the thing I’m absolutely most excited about is getting to see old friends, and making new ones, from the concrete5 community and the greater PHP community.

So if you are heading to PHPUK as well, or if you are in London, do not hesitate to reach out to me!
