Going to the php|works conference and in the middle of a job search? Keep an eye out for Clay Loveless then - he and his company, Mashery, are looking for a few good developers and have a tempting offer as an incentive:
The company I had pleasure of co-founding last summer is once again on the prowl for top-notch, Zend Certified PHP developers. We're taking the hunt for these folks to php|works in Atlanta. Whenever possible, Mashery will be luring the quality developers with free beer. That's right: free beer that is free, as in beer.
They're also having a drawing for an 8GB iPod Touch for anyone that can prove they have recently taken the Zend Certification Exam.
