php[tek] 2016 St. Louis — May 23-27, 2016
Wanted to go to a PHP Conference but always frustrated that they're just outside easy driving distance of Memphis? Me too!
The fine folks at php[architect] have solved this problem for us. The annual php[tek] conference has been moved to St. Louis, MO! With St. Louis being a mere ~4 hour drive away this is an easy drive to an amazing conference.
If you have never been to a PHP conference php[tek] is a great one to be your first. Our own Jeremy Kendall started this user group after attending php[tek]. My own first PHP conference was php[tek] 2014 and it was a blast. They have an amazing schedule (I admit I'm biased - I'm a speaker) and they're doing a special 2 day "PHP Essentials" training session for those new to PHP. I'll be giving my Laravel training session and a regular talk during the conference.
To make the offer even better they have offered me a special price for anyone coming from the Memphis area. You have to contact me and I'll put you in touch!
php[cruise] Out of Baltimore, MD - July 17-24, 2016
After you've made your plans to join me at php[tek] in May, go ahead and make you reservations to join me on a boat! This special event won't happen again anytime soon and our good friend Cal Evans will be giving a one time only talk on the cruise. Bring the family or friends along, there will be days in ports and days at sea.
