We are happy to announce that planning is underway for the 2011 Zend/PHP Conference which will be held in Santa Clara, October 17-20. ZendCon 2011 will be the best conference yet and we would like to invite you to be a part of it! A conference is only as good as its speakers and we are looking for the best speakers to share their knowledge and expertise with the PHP community. Attendees will include developers, architects, development managers, decision makers, core PHP developers and community members.
The key themes they're looking for this year are cloud computing, mobile and user experience and enterprise/professional PHP topics. Within those themes there's several other sub-categories including:
- Architecture & Best Practices
- Zend Framework 1&2
- Rich Internet Apps and Mobile/Tablet - Flash /Flex/HTML 5/CSS3/Ajax
- Standards Compliance
- Real World Case Studies, Designs and Data Models
The Call for Papers will close on May 20th, 2011 and speakers will be given a hotel night for each of their sessions that are accepted. Submit your ideas at www.zendcon.com/input to see if you'll be selected!
UPDATE: for a bit more information on the categories, see this new post on Kevin Schroeder's blog.
