The PHP North West User Group ran it’s 4th (and largest yet!) PHP conference – PHPNW11 in Manchester last weekend.

Once again there were three main tracks to the conference, a total of 15 speakers from both near and wide to choose from. New this year was the fourth track – the Unconference (perhaps lightning talks would be a better description tbh) organised by Elizabeth Naramore. Unfortunately, it was too dark in the Unconference to shoot handheld, but hopefully Rob Allen snagged some of the speakers from there during the day.

At times, I struggled in the main rooms too with the low light, so my apologies to those speakers I didn’t snag clean shots of this year.

These are my photos of all of the speakers from the main tracks on Saturday.
