Interview with Zak Greant on PHP Vikinger
Apr 19, 2006 @ 15:06:33

Marcus from php|architect got a chance to talk a bit with Zak Greant (from eZ Systems) about the "unconference" he's been organizing in Normay, the PHP Vikinger.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Zak Greant of EZ Systems about his unconference, PHP Vikinger. The unconference will be happening June 24th and 25th immediately following the EZ Publish User Conference in Skien, Norway. Zak has many hopes for people staying the extra two days, and he explained why in this interview

They discuss where the name came from, why they chose the "unconference" route, and what's expected of it.

Zak Greant's Blog:
PHP Vikinger site online
Apr 14, 2006 @ 07:21:22

On Polymorph, Zak Greant's blog, today there's a brief post mentioing the official site for a new conference in Norway - PHPVikinger.org.

The conference will be happening in Skein, Norway from June 24th through 25th and will follow the "unconference" mentality - allowing the attendees to set the agend for the event. Rooms for the conference and amenities will be provided (including wireless internet), and space will be provided for attendees to stay (space at a local school) as well as simple meals.

Registration for the event will cost 20 Euros, and all of the money raised will go to various "free culture, free information, and free software groups".

For complete details and updates on the conference, check out their site...
