PHP Master Series Vol 1

Dear Reader,

There is a lot of good information shared at conferences and sadly not even 1% of developers who identify themselves as PHP developers, ever get to attend one. This makes me sad. So I’m trying something new. This may work, it may fail miserably., let’s see. :)

I went through the PHP conferences from the second-half of this year and picked out 6 that really stood out. This was a very difficult task; the PHP community and conferences are blessed with a bounty of great talks and speakers. The criteria I used was topics, score, and speaker. I tried to find talks that were on topics that are of interest to developers, that others liked, and that were given by speakers I know, and know do a good job.

  • Designing Beautiful Software – Matthew Weier O’Phinney
  • Cryptography For The Average Developer – Anthony Ferrara
  • Javascript Best Practices & BackboneJS for the PHP Developer – Ryan Weaver
  • Your code sucks, let’s fix it. – Rafael Dohms
  • Building a Firehose – Ian Barber 
  • From POX to HATEOAS, A Real Company’s Journey Building a RESTful API – Luke Stokes

The end result is a one-day, virtual conference I’m calling “The PHP Master Series, Vol 1”. If you are a PHP programmer and want to learn more, I encourage you to take a look at it. We would love to have you join us. :)

Until next time,
I <3 |<
