ZendCon T-Shirt contest

August 10, 2010


Free T-Shirts may not be the reason people attend conferences but 6 months after the conference, it is usually the one thing you still remember. (Except for maybe the after party where you had four White Russians and the fifth ended up on a friend) This year Zend has decided to crowd source the design of the ZendCon10 T-Shirts. You can go to the site http://php-spirit.strutta.com/, see all the current designs, vote for your favorite, and submit your own.

Summer is upon us, which means that the annual Zend/PHP Conference (ZendCon), the world’s largest gathering of the PHP community, is drawing near. Preparations are already in high gear, and you can make an impact on what fellow PHPers will wear in Fall of 2010! Submit your cool t-shirt designs or just cast your vote.

The winning design will be used for the new ‘official’ PHP t-shirt. Every ZendCon attendee (and some others) will be getting the free t-shirt, and you get a free pass to the conference!

The winner gets a free ticket to ZendCon10 where they will be hailed as the conquering hero by tens of thousands of developers from all over the world. (Or possibly just get to attend a cool conference and see people wearing their design) Either way, it is one of the few chances to both make your mark on the community and get a free ticket to ZendCon10.

So grab your box of crayons and get to work on those designs. Don’t forget to visit daily and vote on the new designs.

About Cal Evans

Many moons ago, at the tender age of 14, Cal touched his first computer. (We're using the term "computer" loosely here, it was a TRS-80 Model 1) Since then his life has never been the same. He graduated from TRS-80s to Commodores and eventually to IBM PC's. For the past 10 years Cal has worked with PHP and MySQL on Linux OSX, and when necessary, Windows. He has built on a variety of projects ranging in size from simple web pages to multi-million dollar web applications. When not banging his head on his monitor, attempting a blood sacrifice to get a particular piece of code working, he enjoys building and managing development teams using his widely imitated but never patented management style of "management by wandering around". Cal is currently based in Nashville, TN and is gainfully unemployed as the Chief Marketing Officer of Blue Parabola, LLC. Cal is happily married to wife 1.28, the lovely and talented Kathy. Together they have 2 kids who were both bright enough not to pursue a career in IT. Cal blogs at http://blog.calevans.com and is the founder and host of Day Camp 4 Developers
