phpDay 2013: News and Highlights
May 27, 2013 @ 14:49:46

On PHPMaster.com there's a new post from Aurelio De Rosa sharing some of his experiences at this year's phpDay conference.

Conferences play an important role in the process of becoming a better developer. When you attend a conference, you not only have the chance to listen to language or technology experts, but also the chance to meet other developers. This is ideal for expanding your networks of contacts to find, if needed, your next job. Last week I attended the phpDay 2013 conference in Verona and the following are some of the highlights of the talks I attended and what I learned.

The post talks about the two-day conference including details on some of the sessions covering things like PHP 5.5, dependency management with Composer, DevOps and high performance PHP.
