PHP London Conference Is Packed Out

Posted by Stuart Herbert on February 23rd, 2007 in Conferences.

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.

    Looks like the wifi worked for you at least!

    If only you’d asked one of them to make an announcement (like we had for phpwm.org) …..

    Hey! I’m a developer! 23 years I’m been slinging code. I will agree though that it was packed. For good reason too. It was a great conference. I was honored to be the “Bit of fluff to start things off”.
