PHP Appalachia Wrap-Up
Oct 02, 2006 @ 08:03:58

Elizabeth Naramore has posted a wrapup of this year's PHP Appalachia (un)conference held in North Carolina, including some pictures.

3+ days of collaboration, exchanging information, hiking, building campfires, and basically getting silly is now on my "highly recommended things to do before you die" list. Not only does a gathering like this provide you with an outlet to expand and share your knowledge on a professional level, it gives you an opportunity to relax with like-minded people and just plain have a good time.

Twelve developers made their way out this year for three days of hiking, talks, and just enjoying the camaraderie of being with fellow developers. She also mentions a few other topics that were talked about, spur of the moment (true to the form of the (un)conference).

Ben Ramsey's Blog:
A Community of Diverse Backgrounds
Sep 29, 2006 @ 07:41:30

Ben Ramsey has posted "live" from the PHP Appalachia (un)conference on his blog today, and talks about the "community of diverse backgrounds" that's come up there at the conference.

To me, it's always very interesting to hear to the pre-PHP stories of other PHP programmers—the days before they programmed in PHP, what they did and how they came to call themselves PHP programmers. The stories vary greatly from programmer to programmer, and almost none begin with: "I was working toward a degree in computer science …."

In fact, the more people I talk with, the more I'm convinced that the typical PHP programmer, in fact, sort of got to where they are by an odd arrangement of life circumstances we call coincidences. Almost none elected to be where they are, but nearly all enjoy the work they do, many to a great degree of passion.

He talks about the conversation serveral attendees had, mentioning some of their backgrounds (anything from marine biology to organizational behavior).

Thanks to PHP Appalachia Sponsors
Sep 20, 2006 @ 15:46:00

On her blog, Elizabeth Naramore has posted some thanks to the sponsores out there that are helping out with this year's PHP Appalachia event and some last minute details for those attending.

I wanted to give a quick acknowledgement to our sponsors for the event, as posted by PHP Appalachia site. We have so many sponsors, and so many door prizes to give away, a good time will definitely be had by all. Their donations are really helping our grass roots gathering come together, and we all greatly appreciate their efforts. I also want to give a quick thanks to Cal Evans who also personally donated numerous t-shirts and goodies as well.

She gives a rough schedule for things, including how the talks will run and links to some info on the area to let you prepare for your trip.
