The ZendCon 2010 Call for Papers has been extended to May 17th

Due to comments on the originally short time-frame allowed for the CFP, we have extended the deadline to May 17th to allow a more reasonable time for submissions. We have also clarified the speaker expenses in the updated text below.


Join the largest gathering of the PHP Community at 2010 Zend/PHP Conference. ZendCon will be held November 1 – 4, 2010 in Santa Clara, California, and is a unique opportunity to share knowledge and expertise with the PHP Community. Attendees will include developers, architects, development managers, decision makers, core PHP developers, prominent community members, and so many more.

The scope of the conference will span the entire development lifecycle from inception through production. We will welcome talk submissions for all skill levels in topic areas including:

  • PHP Development and Best Practices
  • Architecture and Design Patterns
  • Working with SQL Databases, Search Engines and Alternative Data Stores
  • Developer Testing, Debugging, Profiling and QA
  • Frameworks and Tools
  • User Interface, AJAX and Rich Internet Applications
  • Performance and Scalability
  • Deployment, Application Management and Operations
  • Cloud Computing
  • PHP on the IBM i Platform
  • Agile Processes and Project Management
  • Real World Case Studies, Designs and Data Models
  • Talks by ISVs

For guidance, the ZendCon 2009 track and session list is available online (http://zendcon.com/2009/sessions)

Sessions will be accepted as 3 hour tutorials, or 60 minute sessions. In addition, multi-part talks and those involving lab work or “home work” will also be considered.

Roundtrip airline travel will be arranged and paid for by S&S Media, the conference organizer. Speakers will also be provided 1 night of hotel, plus an additional night of hotel for every presentation or tutorial given (up to a maximum of 6 nights).

The Call for Papers ends on May 17th, 2010. Thank you for all submissions.
