PHPNW12 You should be there, and someone can be there
July 11, 2012 @ 08:09:19

Stefan Koopmanschap, a speaker at the upcoming PHP North West Conference (in Manchester, UK the first part of October) is doing something interesting with a ticket he purchased - he's giving it back to the community and is taking nominations for the recipients.

It all started last year: I decided I wanted to go to PHPNW even if I wasn't accepted as a speaker. Being Dutch, I made sure to purchase my ticket for the conference during the blind bird period to save some money. But then I got accepted as a speaker. Part of the speaker package is a ticket to the conference, so I had this spare ticket. One option would be to get a refund. The PHPNW crew had no problem with this. But then I figured I could actually also try and do some good for the PHP community with the ticket. I'd spent the money already, why not use it for someone's benefit.

He wants to try to provide the same kind of experience and community interaction he did when he first got started with the language, so he's donating his ticket to PHPNW back to the cause. If there's someone you'd like to nominate for is ticket, send an email with their name, contact info and why you think they should be selected over to phpnw12@ingewikkeld.net. He'll select a winner on August 15th so they'll have plenty of time to make arrangements for travel and accommodations.
