WordCamp’s have a concept that PHP conferences need to steal. A dedicated room for people to hang out and help each other with technical issues.
Yes, every PHP conference has the hallway track and that’s good. But the happiness bar is for more in-depth help.
Speakers go there after their talk to help people implement the concepts they presented in their talks.
Other participants volunteer to just be there for a shift (1-2 talk slots) and help anyone they can.
PHP conference organizers, find a way to set aside a room for this. Strongly encourage your speakers to take a shift. Strongly encourage other attendees to take shift.
Let’s make it easy to help each other, solve problems, and make happiness, one person at a time.
Until next time,
