I’m really pleased to be speaking at the PHPNW’08 conference in Manchester on 22nd November. I’m going to be giving a behind-the-scenes look at how we built twittex.com in just 7 days from idea to live service at Gradwell dot com, warts and all, and show you what really worked for us, and what we should have done to deliver the service even quicker. I’ll be covering technology, project management, and marketing too.
The last time I spoke at a conference was on Marco’s first php|cruise back in 2004, where we enjoyed a great view from the bar. There wasn’t really a UK PHP scene back then, so I’m looking forward to seeing how that’s changed in the last four years. We built twittex in-house, but we also outsource PHP development, and I’m very interested in meeting up with folks offering PHP and symfony development who are interested in VoIP (we’re the UK’s third largest VoIP provider) and social apps, and also with anyone interested in integrating VoIP into their apps too.
See you in Manchester in November!
