April 25, 2012 @ 11:02:17

On the Ibuildings techPortal there's a new post for people out there wanting to attend this year's Dutch PHP Conference but find the ticket price a problem - they're running a contest to give away one ticket for this year's event!

Good news! We've managed to acquire a conference ticket for the Dutch PHP Conference in Amsterdam, on June 8th and 9th, to give away to our readers. We know that since you're reading techPortal, you are interested in technology in general and probably PHP in particular. The Dutch PHP Conference is one of the leading european conferences for PHP content and we hope you can join us there!

The ticket to this year's Conference also includes admittance into the Dutch Mobile Conference if you're interested in that as well. You can find out more about the Dutch PHP Conference on the main event site.

Brandon Savage's Blog:
"PHP Playbook" Giveaway!
March 16, 2012 @ 10:19:31

In this new post to his blog Brandon Savage mentions his book, the PHP Playbook (php|architect), and how he's giving away several free copies.

When I started writing my book, I wanted to help PHP developers have a greater understanding of the tools, tips and tricks available when working as part of a team. That goal became The PHP Playbook. I'm excited that the book has been so well received, and I'm excited that I've finally received my promotional copies. So, in honor of that, I'm going to give some of them away! I'm even going to sign them!

Just enter in your email address and you'll be put on a mailing list for the book and its future updates. Here's the official description of the book:

Working with a team of developers is a much different environment than solo development. Experienced developers understand the tools and tricks that go into team development enterprises, and they implement them on a daily basis. The PHP Playbook covers these tools and practices, providing insight into the process of developing PHP applications, teaching developers the skills they need to be successful in a team environment.

Kevin Schroeder's Blog:
You want to do WHAT with PHP? GIVEAWAY
October 25, 2010 @ 12:08:54

Kevin Schroeder has received a few copies of his "You Want to Do WHAT With PHP?" book from his publisher and is trying to figure out how to give them away for the folks out there that'd like to check it out.

I just got my copies of my book "You want to do WHAT with PHP?" today. During my conversations with MCPress, my publisher, I had asked for 3 copies to do a social media promotion and they agreed. I posted that I would be giving away 3 copies on Twitter and got a whole bunch of "I WANTS". So I asked my publisher for more copies to give away and they agreed to another 6. So that is a total of 9 copies I have available to give away. Now the problem I have is; how do I give them away.

He's asking that whoever wins pays for the shipping (since it's open to world-wide audiences) and will be splitting it up into three categories with three winners each - user groups to help fill their libraries, those on Twitter and Facebook folks.

Matt Curry's Blog:
Giving Away A Free Copy Of CakePHP Application Development
February 06, 2009 @ 11:15:51

Those looking to get into developing with CakePHP might want to get in on a book giveaway that Matt Curry is doing over on his blog.

I'm not sure if this is going to be frowned upon, but I'm giving away my review copy of CakePHP Application Development (reviewed here). I figure I don't have much use for it, so maybe someone else will benefit.

To be in the running, all you need to do is make a comment on the post by February 28th, 2009.

Rob Richards' Blog:
We Have A Winner
May 09, 2006 @ 05:48:22

Rob Richards of the CDATA Zone Blog has chosen his winner in the contest for a copy of the book he offered, Pro PHP XML and Web Services - Brian Wurster from Arlington, Virginia.

I received a large number of entries (more than expected), but did read every single one of them. The majority were very well done and ranged from someone threatening to bite their own leg off (nice picture btw) to the other extreme of threatening to beat with me a stick (was very funny if you happen to be familiar with Theo Schlossnagle's post for a junior programmer). Both of these were among the finalists, but the entry finally chosen stood out a bit more than the rest.

What really set this entry apart was the creativity. The entry was submitted as a lone PHP script. Lucky for Brian it ran without errors because there was no way I was going to read all that code :), other than to notice it used the new PHP 5 OO features.

Congrats to Brian and if you'd like to check out more of this book yourself, head over to the official APress page for the book. There's an overview, info about the author, and a sample chapter to get an idea of what it's like.
