Snipe.net:
Why You Should Stop Stalling and Start Presenting
June 13, 2014 @ 11:47:01

In her latest post Snipe does her best to motivate those out there that have thought about speaking or presenting at a technology conference but are "stalling" and finding excuses not to. The post pulls from some of her own past experiences as a speaker in various communities, PHP and otherwise.

My last post generated a bit of buzz when it was posted to HackerNews recently, so I figured I'd take this opportunity to reiterate something I've been saying on Twitter for a while now. If you have never presented a conference before, make this the year you change that.

She breaks the rest of the post up into different reasons to stop making excuses and just do it:

  • It is an incredible experience that makes you better at other things
  • You will meet great people and learn about their experiences
  • Even if you suck the first time, it really is okay, even if it doesn't feel like it at the time
  • It's great for your career
  • If you are part of an underrepresented minority, your peers need to see you on that stage
  • Your audience is actually far more forgiving than you imagine
  • You're smarter than you think. Things that are obvious to you are not obvious to everyone else
  • It feels really fucking awesome talking about stuff you care about

She also shares a few panic-aversion tactics she's worked up over the years including starting small, working with "power poses" and a reminder to use the "presenter view" feature in your presentation software of choice.

Gonzalo Ayuso:
Talk about SOLID and Symfony at the deSymfony 2014 conference.
June 03, 2014 @ 09:23:21

Gonzalo Ayuso has posted a wrapup and the slides from his SOLID presentation at this year's deSymfony conference recently held in Barcelona, Spain.

Last saturday I attended to the deSymfony conference in Barcelona. A great opportunity to meet again with the PHP and Symfony community in Spain. This year the conference accepted my talk about SOLID and Symfony. Here you can see the slides of the talk (slides in spanish). [...] The conference was perfect. Barcelona is an incredible city and the conference place (10 minutes walking from the Sagrada Familia), was incredible too. Great talks. But the best, as always, the coffe breaks with the conversations with the Symfony and PHP community from Valencia, Zaragoza, Madrid, Barcelona, ...

His talk (in Spanish) covers some of the basics around the SOLID design principles including definitions of each piece and brief code snippets to illustrate. If you're interested in a bit more detail around the SOLID principles in PHP, check out the first four parts of a series over on NetTuts.com for each principle: Single Responsibility, Open/Closed, Liskov Substitution & Interface Segregation and Dependency Inversion principles.
