Hi, I’m Chris: web craftsman, community leader, husband, father, and partner at Fictive Kin.

PHP Comes to DC

The DC PHP Conference is right around the corner, and it looks like it's going to be great. (It's not too late to register.) Not only is this conference inexpensive ($450 for both days, $250 for one, and $150 for students), it boasts an impressive lineup of speakers.

Among the scheduled talks, I see Facebook, Digg, and Ning represented:

There are also a couple of talks by Ed Finkler. He's speaking about his security projects, PHPSecInfo and Inspekt. (I suspect Ed is more well known as the developer of Spaz.)

Not to be outdone, we are going to have a booth (our first booth!), Paul is giving a talk on framework and application benchmarking, Nate is giving a tutorial on CakePHP, and I'm giving the opening keynote. (Scary stuff!)

If you're into Twitter, you can follow me. I plan to update frequently during the conference.

Hope to see you there!

Hi Mike,

I plan to take my MP3 recorder, so if I can get permission, I'll try to record a few of the talks. The organizers might be planning to do something similar, which would be even better.

@Chris - I think that's the Dev Group registration link. ;)

@Mike - Most presenters tend to post their slides not too long after their presentation, you might keep an eye on their sites.

It's interesting to see how many social networking sites are sending people this year. They're a pretty good spread in terms of size, so I'm interested to how they're dealing with some of the common issues... if they're taking the same approaches or completely different.
