What Is An UnConference (uncon) & How Is It Different From A Conference?
January 16, 2014 @ 09:18:57

If you've ever attended a conference (or are planning on it in the near future) you may have heard of something called an "unconference". If you're not 100% clear on what it is, check out this new interview with Michelangelo van Dam.

Have you been to an unconference aka uncon? I have not unfortunately (at least not yet)! But I was curious of what it actually is, the benefit you can reap from it, the responsibilities that it presents and how it's different from a conference. I started looking around of a possible interview (with uncon organizers around) about it since last year. But this year, 2014, I was adamant of getting it rolling.

To concretise this wish, the perfect man for it was Michelangelo! Perfect because he never turns down an opportunity to share his knowledge and wisdom with The PHP Community and also mainly because he has organized and participated at so many different uncons. Besides, he's the founder and co-leader of the PHP-BENELUX user-group - the level of insight and advice that you get from him is invaluable and of high quality.

They start off with a bit of talk about Michelangelo's background as a developer and his involvement in the PHP community. There's also a bit about the Zend Certification Exam and the PHPWomen group. Finally, they get into the unconference - what it is, what kind of content you can expect and how you can get involved in one at your next conference.

php|tek's Unconference Track & Chair - Michelangelo van Dam
February 13, 2013 @ 09:13:27

The php|tek conference has officially announced the Unconference track that'll be happening at this year's event and their excitement about the chair for the track - Michaelangelo van Dam.

We are excited to announce more details about the Uncon at tek13! This year we are honored to have Michelangelo van Dam (@DragonBe) serve as our Uncon chair. Michelangelo has done this for numerous other conferences in the past and we are deeply thankful to him for agreeing to help organize our Uncon as well.

This year's unconference will be an entire track happening all days of the conference instead of just later in the day on some days. If you're planning on attending the event and either didn't get a talk accepted or just want to talk about something you love, you should consider signing up when you arrive. Sessions for the next day will be selected at the end of each day from the ones added to the schedule.

7php.com:
Interview With Michelangelo van Dam - President Of PHPBenelux PHP Use
January 23, 2012 @ 12:55:02

On 7php.com today there's a new community interview - this time it's with Michelangelo van Dam, the President of the PHPBenelux user group and well known PHP speaker/community advocate.

In this edition, I talked with Michelangelo van Dam a senior PHP/Zend Framework consultant. This man really needs no introduction; he is so much of an invaluable asset to the PHP community. As per wefollow.com, he is ranked as the 4th (out of 113) most influential person on Twitter for #zendframework and as the 25th (out of 2,543) most influential person for #php

Questions in the interview cover everything from a bit of history about Michelangelo out to how supportive the PHP community is:

Give and expect nothing in return. People appreciate it more when you give something from the heart instead of giving something as a favor for a future return.

Other questions touch on his "community animal" nickname, his community/life balance and his tracking of the work Microsoft is doing to help the PHP language.

Zend Developer Zone:
Announcing ZendCon 2010's UnCon
September 24, 2010 @ 08:07:56

On the Zend Developer Zone Matthew Weier O'Phinney as officially announced that there will be an unconference at this year's Zend/PHP Conference in November in Santa Clara, California.

Contrary to earlier reports, ZendCon's unconference -- a set of parallel, participant-driven sessions -- will be happening again this year, for the fourth year running. This year, Michelangelo van Dam has agreed to take the reins from Keith Casey and chair this year's UnCon event. Michelangelo is well-known in the PHP community, having helped found PHPBenelux, assisted in promoting and participating in PHP HackFests, and assisted in running the Dutch PHP Conference unconference offering.

The details are still being ironed out, so keep an eye on the Zend Developer Zone for the latest updates as the conference gets closer and closer.

More PHPBenelux 2010 Wrapups
February 04, 2010 @ 11:49:58

Two new wrapups of the recent PHP Benelux conference have been posted, one from organizer Michelangelo Van Dam and another from Lorna Mitchell.

From Michelangelo's post:

This past weekend, Belgium was buzzing PHP all the way. PHPBenelux organized the first annual international PHP conference in Belgium and it can be called a true success. [...] This was the first conference that I not only attended, but was actually involved behind the scenes. It was a great experience and I have now more respect to organizers of bigger conferences now that we know what kind of challenges they have to overcome.

And from Lorna Mitchell:

Last weekend I was privileged to speak at the inaugural PHPBenelux conference in Antwerp, Belgium. [...] The conference itself was very well organised and the venue worked very nicely. [...] The venue itself was just across the car park and had plenty of rooms with an open exhibition space which worked nicely - the two tracks were on opposite sides of this space so the footfall for the exhibitors was hopefully good! Full marks go to the crew.
