It seems like the last one just wrapped, but the good news is that the next one is right around the corner:
The DCPHP Conference has come a long way the past couple years. The first year… there were some logistics issues and the attendance was a little low. I prefer to call it "intimate". 😉
Last year, it was a world of difference. The venue was better – (George Washington University in DC, same as this year) – and the organization, polish, attendance, and logistics were at a whole new level. Unfortunately, I have some good news and some bad news…
The good news… this year is going to be even bigger and better. I have an inside ear on some of the things going on and some big attention and events are on the way. If you're in the PHP space, you'll recognize the names, faces, and companies… but I'll let them make the announcements.
The bad news… the Call for Papers ends soon. I know, hard to call that "bad news", but I had to come up with something. 😉
If you want to get involved, there's still plenty of time and a bunch of options:
- You can submit a presentation to speak – deadline: 15 March 2008;
- You can register online right now – DCPHP Dev Group members get a discount until 15 April 2008 – to be a member, sign up for the mailing list;
- You can spread the word via Facebook;
- Or you can mention it on your blog, Twitter stream, Digg, etc;
Disclosure: Other than being a moderator in the DCPHP Development Group, I don't have a vested interest in the conference. I do have an interest in having a PHP conference and more active PHP ecosystem on this coast, but I think all three of my readers do too.
