Rafael Dohms' Blog:
php|tek 2011 and what's trending

Rafael Dohms has posted a wrapup of this year's php|tek '11 conference and has included some of his thoughts about the "trending technologies" he saw during his time there.

Another edition of php|tek has come and gone and this year some very amazing topics came into view. The conference itself was once again a great experience, great people, incredible speakers, lots of activities and incredible hack-a-thons and unconference sessions.

Topics he noticed coming to the forefront at this year's event included:

  • Cloud computing (and the PHP-specific offerings related to it)
  • Mobile development
  • API and external tool integration

He also mentions one thing he wouldn't mind seeing more of at events - the "soft skills" sort of presentations. They're less about the technology that's used and more about the "people skills" developers can use to make the best of their careers.
