Mmm … the “sold out” sign on the PHP London Conference’s home page doesn’t do it justice. “Packed out” would be a much better description. There isn’t an empty seat in the house, and during the talks there are quite a few folks standing at the back or sitting on the floor.
It’s fantastic to see such a well-supported conference here in the UK. I don’t remember coming across anyone else from the UK at the PHP conferences I’ve been to overseas. Apart from Cal and Yair representing Zend, everyone else I’ve spoken to has been a developer. For all the attention that Rails has grabbed in the last twelve months, it’s great to see that interest in PHP if anything is stronger than it was a year ago.
If anyone’s interested in having a chat about the Why PHP? group, let me know. I’m sat on the back row just to the left of the main doors.
