PHPDay, come to Verona for the day (or 3)

January 26, 2011


So I saw this tweet this morning and it spurred me into action. PHP conferences continue to sprout up all over the world and that’s generally a good thing for developers. While it’s not a new one, PHPDay will be May 12-14, 2011 in Verona, Italy.

phpDay 2011 will be from 12th to 14th of May. We’ll show new development traits, best-practices and success cases related to quality, revision control, test-driven development, continuous integration and so on. There are also talks about design, project management, agile and various php-related technologies.

Europe is spoiled with great PHP conferences, from PHPBenelux, to PHPNorthwest to the Dutch PHP Conference; from the looks of the web site, PHPDay continues that tradition. If you are in Italy, you owe it to yourself to check this conference out and support it. At €175 – €275 for tickets, it looks to be a great option.

Go, check them out, even if you can’t go, show them a little tweet love to help them get the word out.

SPECIAL UPDATE: loves you guys too! :)

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 and is the founder and host of Day Camp 4 Developers

    Why are there not PHP conferences like this more frequently held in the U.S.? Or do I just not know about them?
