On the Zend Developer Zone today there's a new post from Cal Evans about the SQL ServerJump In Camp that's happening near the Microsoft offices in Seattle. It's an event bringing together developers from 10+ projects all around the PHP community to work on PHP itself.
If you follow Microsoft and PHP then you aren't surprised that Microsoft is yet again getting PHP developers together to talk. However, if you don't pay attention, you may be surprised at how interested Microsoft is in PHP and the projects built on top of it. It is that latter interest, projects built on PHP, which is the focus of this week's camp.
As Cal points out, this isn't a typical get-together kind of event - the focus is on the code and developers are actively working during coding sessions to try to meet some expectations by the end of the week. The Zend Developer Zone will post updates about the event during the week including articles, interviews and podcasts.
