On 7PHP.com today there's a new interview posted around the first ever Nomad PHP user group meeting that featured Rob Allen. The interview spans a few different people - the organizer, the speaker and three of the people in attendance.

Wednesday 22nd May 2013, NomadPHP hosted their first talk which was about "Zend Framework 2″ - a talk by Rob Allen. I even announced a two-ticket giveaways which was made possible by NomadPHP. In this article you'll find short interviews which will showcase the opinion, feedback and suggestions from the NomadPHP organizer (Cal Evans), Rob Allen (The Speaker) and three attendees - two of which were the 7PHP Ticket winners.

There's lots of good information and feedback in the interview and if you're at all interested in the Nomad PHP (virtual) user group, you should definitely give it a read.

Ben Ramsey:
On the Rise of Community Conferences
October 09, 2012 @ 09:21:05

Ben Ramsey, an organizer of the PHP Community Conference, has written up some of his thoughts about the recent rise of "community conferences" that's been happing in the PHP community (and other communities around the world).

The PHP world is exploding with community conferences. In fact, web development technologies in general are seeing a wide range of community-driven conferences springing up around the world. I think there are many reasons for the proliferation of these conferences, and in this post, I present my opinion on how this trend came to be, along with a definition of what I think constitutes a technology-focused community conference.

So you're sure wat he means by "community conference" he offers a definition that has less to do with the content of the event and more to do with the group putting it on. These community conferences are organized by the community for the community and are usually people already established. He also mentions the "unconference phenomenon" and how it seemed like a precursor to the community conferences. He points out a few other criteria that make it "community".

Several conferences are mentioned both in the post and in the comments: PHP Community Conference, True North PHP, CodeConnexx, CoderFaire and others (not mentioned) like Lone Star PHP, North East PHP, Midwest PHP and many more.

February 27, 2012 @ 08:56:19

On 7php.com today there's another interview with a member of the PHP community posted - Amit Singh, an organizer of the largest Indian Unconference, PHPCamp.org

In this edition, I talked with Amit Kumar Singh The founder of AmiWorks. Amit (@onlyphp) is a very passionate developer and has been the organizer of the Biggest Un-Conference In Pune in 2008. Following this success, he founded PHPCamp.org. He was the guy who coined the famous "Pune Effect" in India. I have been specially enthusiastic with how he makes each of his projects a simple success by just having the mindset of "Experiments Never Fail" and hence do not hesitate at all in experimenting every of your (coding/projects) dreams.

Questions in the interview ask Amit about things like:

  • His history with the PHP language
  • Some of his advice to a beginner
  • What resources (books, blogs, etc) he recommends
  • How he usually debugs his code
  • Where he sees the PHP ecosystem in five years
  • More about his PHPCamp project/conference

February 24, 2012 @ 09:19:36

Phil Sturgeon attended this year's CICONF 2012 (UK) and has shared some of his thoughts and experiences in a new post to his blog.

It's been a few days since CICONF and this is my first chance to get my thoughts together after a few busy days. In all I am extremely pleased with the event, and so far I have seen nothing but positive feedback on the #ciconf hash-tag and not heard any complaints. Winner!

He goes through both days of the conference - Friday and Saturday - describing things from his perspective (an organizer), some of the speakers that presented and some of the evening activities.

Zend Developer Zone:
Te Smith Talks About ZendCon
October 11, 2006 @ 08:52:00

On the Zend Developer Zone today, Cal Evans spotlights one of the organizers for the upcoming Zend/PHP Conference - Te Smith.

One of the great things about my job is the people I get to work with on a daily basis. One of the people that make the experience so much fun is one of the "Zend Goddesses of Marketing" Ms. Te Smith. Te is managing the details of the coming ZendCon so I thought I'd call her up and quiz her on the conference.

Because the conference is mere weeks away, getting phone time with Te is nigh-on impossible. However after sufficient supplication and begging, I was granted an audience. Here's what Te had to say when I asked her how things were shaping up for ZendCon.

Te talks about how well things have come together, what to expect at the conference, and some of the keynotes that have been scheduled.
