Cal Evans:
Five influencers you should thank this year for making the PHP community so awesome
December 22, 2014 @ 11:47:56

Cal Evans, PHP community member extraordinaire, has a new post sharing his suggestions of the top five influencers in the PHP community that "make it awesome" and help make it one of the best he's been involved in.

It is no surprise to anyone who has talked to me for more than five minutes that I think the PHP community is the most vibrant and engaging developer community out there. So as we approach the end of the year, I am going to list out the influencers that help keep this community at the top. These are the people that you need to seek out and thank because without them, the PHP community would not be what it is today.

He goes with categories rather than mentioning names (because, really, there's way too many too name them all):

  • 5: Core Developers
  • 4: User Group Leaders
  • 3: Conference Organizers
  • 2: Conference Speakers, Bloggers, and Teachers
  • 1: Any developer using PHP

That last one, while it might seem like an "everyone else" kind of category, is one of the most important in my opinion. After all, what is a language without its users. Core developers and community group/event leaders wouldn't have anything to talk about if no one was there to talk. There would be no one to teach or be taught to and the core developers wouldn't have any reason to drive the language forward. Even if you're not well-known in the PHP community, you and your code are making a contribution to the community, even if only in a small way.

Symfony Blog:
Symfony November Camp in Sweden
November 06, 2014 @ 10:53:05

On the Symfony blog they've made the announcement about the Symfony November Camp happening in Sweden (back for their second time) November 14th in Stockholm.

As an organizer of the Swedish Symfony community I'm happy to say that we are hosting our second Symfony Conference. It is a one-day, single-track conference with speakers from 6 countries. The event takes place in Stockholm on November 14th. We will have two workshops the day before the event with Matthias Noback and Magnus Nordlander. One is a workshop on getting started with Symfony, and the other is for advanced Symfony application architecture. Both of our workshops are small groups, to ensure that you'll have plenty of access to the trainer.

They have a great list of speakers lined up for the day's event including Matthias Noback, Mathias Verraes and Raul Fraile. Tickets for the conference itself are 109 Euro and the training is 439 Euro. You can find out more about the event and pick up tickets on the November Camp website.

Beth Tucker Long:
How to Submit a Talk to a Conference
October 29, 2014 @ 09:21:00

If you've ever considered taking the leap and trying your hand at speaking at (technology) conferences but weren't sure where to start Beth Tucker Long, well known PHP community member and speaker, has posted a guide to help you submit a talk to your conference of choice.

I've been on both sides of the proverbial conference table. I have been the one submitting proposals, hoping against hope that they will pick mine, and I have been on the selection committee, struggling to choose between hundreds of awesome proposals when you only have a few talk slots available. Through these varied experiences, I've learned a few things about what works and what doesn't when submitting a conference proposal.

She provides a "checklist" of sixteen things that she's learned over the years about submitting ideas to events and what to do/not do when giving the actual presentation including:

  • First and foremost, remember to hit spell-check
  • Don't talk about yourself in your talk description
  • Explain the practical applications of your topic
  • Share past feedback in the comments or notes section
  • Submit a lot of proposals
  • Don't submit multiple topic ideas or variable time lengths in one submission

The final three on her list have more to do with the presentation itself than the proposal and, in my opinion, are almost more important: don't talk down to your audience, be brief and be interesting.
