PHP Appalachia Wrap-ups
Oct 17, 2008 @ 11:15:11

The PHP Appalachia unconference happened from October 11th through 14th in Pigeon Forge, TN with plenty of talks, community interaction and relaxation. Here's a few posts from those that were there:

There was plenty of activity on Flickr and twitter during the conference - here's the links:

Elizabeth summed it up well:

Imagine sticking roughly 25 geeks together in a house in the mountains for 4 days and see what comes of it. Cooking together, hacking together, talking PHP together, playing some video games together and of course drinking together. I think everyone would agree that it's worth the $15 plus travel and the cost of the cabin.

Keith Casey's Blog:
php Appalachia 2008 is a Go
Oct 10, 2008 @ 11:17:36

Keith Casey has written up somewhat of a preview of things to come at this year's PHP Appalachia:

PHP Appalachia originally came about a few years back because... well, I'm not sure, but I've heard (I wasn't there) that it resulted in a bunch of PHP geeks sitting around a camp fire, a bit hacking away a bit during the day, and generally building the community that PHP is known for.

He mentions other community members that'll be attending including Elizabeth Naramore, Ben Ramsey and Cal Evans for the four day long event.

PHP Appalachia Update
Sep 23, 2008 @ 10:25:43

Elizabeth Naramore has an update posted for those interested in this year's PHP Appalachia conference (in Pigeon Forge, TN October 11th through 14th).

PHP Appalachia is now only 3 weeks away! We have 30 people currently signed up, but there is still room for more. There may be room in the Main Cabin (room sharing availability is on our wiki) or else there are plenty of campsites and hotels in the general area.

There's a tentative schedule of talks posted on their wiki that includes lots of time to see the other sights in the area. There's a list of current attendees on the wiki as well. Registration for the conference itself only costs $15 USD (not including lodging).
