Know Thy Conference - Know The EndPoint API Conference
Aug 05, 2014 @ 13:55:21

The 7PHP.com site has a new interview posted with Ivo Jansch about a conference this year that's not specifically targeted at PHP developers but is inclusive of them: EndPoint API Conference. The interview touches on topics such as the origin of the conference, what some of the goals are and some of Ivo's own background.

This conference is all about APIs. We use more and more smart devices in our daily lives and many of these devices communicate with the internet by ways of APIs. Once, the web was the dominant way of consuming content, but these days it’s all about smart devices. Watches, Glasses, TVs – I can see a future where every device becomes smart and can run apps.

This means that web development is experiencing a major shift. Websites become clients too, just like other apps. This means developers need to start thinking more in client/server terms, and we think Endpoint can help developers do that as efficiently as possible.

Ivo also answers other questions about:

  • Where the motivation for the conference came from
  • What kind of attendance they're expecting
  • What kinds of opportunities it offers
  • Where it excels/lacks compared to other similar events
  • If it could be an inspiration for a user group to start up

Check out the full interview for answers to these and more questions about this new conference. You can also find out more about the conference itself on the event's website.

The Dutch PHP Conference 2011
Jun 03, 2011 @ 10:35:27

On the PHPWomen blog today there's a new post from Lineke Kerckhoffs-Willems talking about her experiences at this year's Dutch PHP Conference (2011) that wrapped up about two weeks ago in Amsterdam.

About two weeks ago I attended the Dutch PHP Conference with many thanks to PHPWomen and Ibuildings for the ticket. So far I have attended almost all editions of the Dutch PHP Conference (DPC), I only missed one. So I knew it would be awesome before it even started and I was right!

She covers each of the days and some of the talks and events she attended including the keynote from Aral Blakan, a talk about test-driven development, the unconference, a look at the "new era of PHP frameworks" and character sets in MySQL (co-presented by Ligaya Turmelle, a fellow PHPWomen member).

Stefan Koopmanschap's Blog:
More PHP in the low lands
Apr 10, 2009 @ 12:04:56

Stefan Koopmanschap has a quick look at PHP's presence "in the low lands" around the Netherlands.

As my previous post shows, PHP is active in the Netherlands, and our user group is acting on that. However there's more beyond our user group in this little country!

He mentions the pfCongrez (April 15th in Maarssen, online registration required, about 17 Euro) and the Dutch PHP Conference (June 11-13th in Amsterdam, full ticket is 500 Euro) both with excellent sessions by speakers like Derick Rethans, Matthew Weier O'Phinney and Eli White.
