Hack Community Roundup
May 19, 2014 @ 12:45:12

For those interested in what's going on in the world of Hack (the Facebook-created language based on PHP) check out this "community roundup" with information about and links to some of the latest happenings.

In the weeks since the Hack open source launch and the Hack developer day, there has been a lot of information, code, blog posts, etc coming from our nascent community. To us on the team, it’s been incredible and encouraging to see the community reception to Hack. Here are some of the highlights of the things we’ve seen come out of our community. (And we almost certainly haven’t seen everything, so please let us know in the comments what we’ve missed!

They share several related GitHub projects (including the Hack/HHVM support on Heroku), a few presentations about installation and experience with the tools and a few blog posts wrapping up their Hack dev day and an article from FastCompany about Hack and its motivation

PHP Barcelona 2009: Round-Up
Nov 03, 2009 @ 08:14:52

Lorna Mitchell has posted her wrapup of this year's PHP Barcelona conference that happened just this past weekend.

I spent the last few days in sunny Spain at the PHP Barcelona conference as a speaker. [...] The conference itself was excellent [...] I also saw some great talks from the other speakers there, some were people I often see at conferences, others were familiar names, and yet more were people I'd never heard of but I certainly learned a lot from all these groups.

She notes that, contrary to what she expected, most of the talks were presented in English showing an "interesting cultural shift" in some of the international conferences.

If you missed the conference, you can find out more about the sessions on their site and some pictures on flickr.

ZendCon Day 1 Roundup and Keynote Thoughts
Oct 31, 2006 @ 17:35:20

Ben Ramsey has posted his own wrapup of the first day of the Zend/PHP Conference & Expo and some of his thoughts on the keynote talk given by Andi, Zeev, et al.

The first day of the Zend/PHP Conference and Expo (the day of tutorials) was great. I sat in on Robert Richards’s Advanced XML and Web Services and Marcus’s and Sara’s Extending PHP tutorials. I multi-tasked as best I could, catching up on some work while finishing my slides and listening to the presentations.

He comments on the talks he's attended (like Robert Richards' XML/Web services talk and the contents of the keynote - including the announcements of the collaborations with Microsoft, IBM, and the new advancements that Zend has made with their products.

Here's the key info we'd like:

  • Company Name
  • Position title
  • Position location
  • Summary description of the position
  • A link to more information on it (on Monster, Hotjobs, your site, etc.)
Other information included along with the request might me truncated or modified slightly to fit within these guidelines.

To submit your job information, send it along to jobs@phpdeveloper.org and we'll get it posted and include the phrase "JOB POSTING" somewhere in the subject line. Since this will start off as a weekly thing, you'll need to wait until Friday to see the information show up.
