The news has broken in a report on PHP-Center that the traditional annual PHP Spring Conference in Amsterdam has been cancelled this year. Because of the World Cup, people from all over the world will be flooding into Amsterdam, this influx of tourists has created a shortage of some of the essential ingrediants without which the conference cannot operate. Of course, I'm talking about the lack of a venue.
It's sad to see that one of the more popular European PHP conferences won't be happening this year, but there's always the International PHP Conference to look forward to:
On the bright side, there's word on the rumor mill that the International PHP Conferece in November is going to be bigger that ever, and will introduce a big sponsor which has yet to sponsor PHP events.
