Stefan Koopmanschap's Blog:
Organizing your own conference
February 02, 2010 @ 12:48:36

In a recent post to his blog Stefan Koopmanschap talks about organizing a conference based on some of his experiences at this year's PHP Benelux Conference (2010) as an organizer.

It took us a bit longer than initially planned but by last summer, the plans started to take serious shape. We started working on a date, getting our CfP worked out, and contacted the first potential sponsors. We spread out the work over the nine people involved.

He walks you through every step of the way including how the Call for Papers went, coordination of attendees and speakers, and how all of the planning and preparation paid off when it came down to the actual time of the conference.

Man, what a blast. I have not regretted a single moment that I jumped into organizing this conference. And I'll do it again next year. Even worse, I'm doing it again before that, as I've also volunteered for helping in this year's SymfonyCamp. But it's going to be a blast. We'll be having fun. The stress is worth all of it and more.
