Laravel News:
ArtisanConf – A new Laravel Conference in London
Apr 20, 2015 @ 09:34:00

The Laravel News site has a post talking about a new Laravel-related conference happening in London on July 9th and 10th (at the Barbican): ArtisanConf, "the premier UK conference for Laravel and modern PHP enthusiasts. Up to 300 artisans will convene in the heart of London’s Tech City for two days of inspirational talks, engaging networking and amazing learning opportunities."

Jonty Behr is one of the organizers of ArtisanConf, and I asked him why he decided to start this new conference. “Laravel is incredibly popular in the UK, and a lot of developers have been requesting a UK based conference for a while. Although the guys at LaraconEU do an amazing job, not all developers in the UK are able to travel to Amsterdam and we hope to help, educate and build their experience within the community.”

The conference already has some amazing (and well known) speakers lined up. Plus they are hoping that there will be something for both beginners and the experienced at ArtisanConf. There will be two full days of talks and more details will be released soon.

You can already pick up tickets from the conference site or, if you'd like a chance at speaking, head over and submit to their Call for Papers.

Lorna Mitchell's Blog:
PHP North West 2011
Jun 07, 2011 @ 09:45:18

Lorna Mitchell has a new post today about this year's PHP North West conference happening October 7th through 9th in Manchester, UK. She talks some about the current status of the event and how it'll be structured.

e might still be in the thick of the summer conference season, but there's an event coming up this autumn which has me very excited: PHP North West 2011.

This is a regional PHP conference based in Manchester, UK, and I've been involved with it since it began (I'm surprised to find this is our fourth edition, it still feels like a shiny new adventure!). This year the dates are 8th and 9th of October and with an added tutorial day on the Friday, it is bigger (and of course better) than ever.

She points out the current Call for Papers that are open for submission and notes that the deadline is very soon - June 12th. She mentions the Tutorial Day with topics covering Zend Framework 2, security, Drupal performance and her web services tutorial. You can currently pick up tickets for the "blind bird" price of £72. For more information, see the main conference site.
