Schedule Posted and Early Bird Sale Extended

Scheduling took us a lot longer than expected, but only because the response to the Call for Papers was simply amazing (635 submissions!).  In fact, it was so great that we decided we couldn’t keep php[world] contained.  To accommodate as many fascinating talks as we could, we extended the conference schedule to include five concurrent sessions.  Honestly, we could have scheduled 10 concurrent sessions and still not had enough room for all of the amazing talks, but we couldn’t book any more space at the venue this year.

We have topics that span the whole world of PHP.  We specifically chose to highlight seven specific tracks relating to WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Joomla!, Zend Framework, Symfony, and Laravel, and you can see everything on our schedule page.

Last, but not least, we are extending the Early Bird deadline by one week!  You now have until July 25th to receive your $200 Early Bird savings!  Don’t get too complacent, though, that’s still just two weeks away.  Pick up your ticket today if you want the biggest savings possible.

Overwhelming response!

All of you have given us a monumental task here at php[architect].  At the end of our Call for Papers, we received 635 (yes, 635!) separate submissions from 172 different speakers.

We’ve spent all last week reviewing each and every one, and this week are working at pulling that all together into a schedule.  Stay tuned, you should hear back from us soon.

Welcome to the Inaugural php[world] conference!

The team at php[architect] magazine is excited to bring you a brand new conference in the Washington, DC area.  Having run our php[tek] conference for many years now (and other conferences as well).  We felt it was time to start another one as well.  But this conference has a different mission behind it.  Our php[tek] conference is known as the definitive conference in the US for the core PHP developer.

We wanted to create a conference however that appealed to the all the different communities that exist around the PHP ecosystem.  Whether you are a core PHP developer, a heavy framework user (such as Zend Framework or Symfony), or a WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, or Magento developer … this conference will be for you!  We are designing this conference to bring the entire world of PHP development together in one place!

Read more about this conference on our ‘About’ page, submit to our Call for Papers, or go ahead and Register if you believe in this concept as much as we do!   See you in November in DC!
