India will become number 1 source of PHP developers soon
July 30, 2009 @ 07:51:39

According to this new post on the blog, in the near future India will become the number one source for PHP developers in the world.

The number of Indian PHP developers has been growing at a large pace in the last few years, when compared to other countries. A few years ago, India was just one of the top ten countries with more PHP developers. Now India is number 2 and is almost surpassing United States, which is still number 1. This article presents a reflection about why this growth happened just in the latest years, as well what it means for the PHP world.

They talk about the size of the Indian PHP market and how many developers (certified and uncertified) are out there looking to fill the needs. By their own numbers, the has more job openings in India than any other country (with the US coming in second).

Vineet Agrawal sent us along an email today about a new event happening at this year's OSSCampDelhi - Delhi's first PHP Unconference:

India's first community driven PHP Camp is on 08-09 September 2007. PHP Camp is part of India's biggest Open Source UnConference "OSS Camp". More than 300 Geeks from across the world are expected to participate.

PHP Camp will bring together the PHP community in a distinctly un-conference setting, to gather in groups to discuss or hack on something, rather than sitting in chairs and listening to marketing presentations with corporate logo. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. Participation is free of cost! OSS Camp is based on philosophy of Bar Camp ( Barcamp is an ad-hoc gathering born out of the desire for people to meet up, share, exchange ideas and possibilities in an open environment. At OSS Camp there are no RULES, FIXED Formats, where open source geeks run the show!!

Some of the tracks for PHP camps are Frameworks, Unit Testing, PHP Security, Performance Management, High Availability beside product specific themes like Joomla, Drupal, EZ, Dot Project camps.

You can find out more information from the wiki for the event and, if you're interested in presenting, head over to the submissions page and provide the info for your session (around 40 minutes for a normal talk, 90 minutes for a workshop).
