We are excited to announce today the amazing keynote speakers that we have lined up for you! We’ve worked hard to find the best speakers and talks that cover the breadth of the PHP experience. We want php[world] to be a conference that pulls together all the different fragmented communities of PHP into one place to share ideas, and our keynotes reflect that mission.
We will have Luke Stokes, Co-Founder and CTO of FoxyCart, speaking on his experience of forming his own company. Angela Byron, a core committer to the Drupal Project and Director of Community Development at Acquia, is going to talk to us about the efforts Drupal has been making to break out of its own community and embrace libraries from other projects. Andrew Nacin, a WordPress Lead Developer, is going to share how WordPress built their automatic security updates and convinced their community of its benefits. Also, Jeffrey A. “jam” McQuire, Open Source Evangelist at Acquia, will present how the Open Source Software revolution, with PHP leading the way, is making for better business, better government, and, he hopes, a better world!
Finally we are going to wrap up the conference with “The Greatest Panel on Earth.” We will have key people representing seven of the biggest PHP frameworks and applications: WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Joomla!, Symfony, Laravel, and Zend Framework all together in one place to answer all your most difficult questions!
