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.

Packing more PHP News in your day with PHP Quick Fix
December 07, 2011 @ 11:35:53

If you're a regular reader of PHPDeveloper.org, you know that there's a few articles posted here (almost) daily about what's happening in the PHP world. Unfortunately, this only scratches the surface of the quality content that's out there. In an effort to provide more PHP goodness to the community as a whole, PHP Quick Fix has been launched - a service linking to stories that don't make it on PHPDeveloper.org.

All of the stories on PHP Quick Fix (you can also follow it on twitter) are still hand-selected out of the mounds of PHP content that shows every day to ensure the best quality. There's no automatic syndication here - just more good, useful PHP (and related topics) to add to your day.

Additionally, if you're interested to see how it all works (thanks to a GimmeBar backend) check out this post on blog.phpdeveloper.org.

PHP Conferences news roundup
January 12, 2011 @ 08:55:10

If you've been feeling a bit out of the loop about the upcoming PHP conferences worldwide, you should take a look at this new summary post from the ServerGrove blog. It looks at the latest for five different conferences.

Every a few months we publish a post regarding news about PHP conferences. In the last few years the number of conferences being held around the globe has increased dramatically. 2011 spawned a few days ago but we felt it was time to do one of those articles due to the number of conferences being held right at the start of the new year. Here is a quick list of conferences that are coming up and that you should seriously consider attending if you are close or can travel.

They mention the latest from PHP Benelux, Symfony Live (US), Symfony Live (Paris), PHP UK and Confoo.

Robert Basic's Blog:
A regional PHP community website
October 18, 2010 @ 11:09:50

If you're a PHP developer and you're in or near Serbia, you should check out a new site put up by Robert Basic specifically for developers in that area - PHPLaneta.net.

It's idea is to be a community website for PHP programmers from Serbia and other countries from the region. The idea for this website "hit" me somewhere in April or May I think, while I was lurking the interwebs for some, any PHP communities in the region, user groups, anything really, where local PHP programmers could share ideas, news, interests, etc., but found nothing (well, besides 2 bulletin boards and a few of us on Twitter). So, I decided to try and create one.

There's some good content in there already, so if you're in the area (or really anywhere for that matter) and want to keep up with some of the latest PHP-related news from a Serbian's perspective, check out PHPPlaneta.net.
