Convince your boss !


It’s a simple formula. The more a developer can increase their productivity and innovation while, at the same time, decreasing their downstream impact (bugs, future feature roadblocks, etc) the more valuable that developer is to their organization.

In the open source world the technology we use to build applications evolves almost daily. Understanding industry and technology trends and avoiding trial and error by learning from other developer’s experiences can be INVALUABLE to your development organization.

For ZendCon we recruit some of the best and most experienced PHP architects and developers in the industry to share their experiences and expertise.

Do you know how much time a jump-start on using an enterprise quality development framework can save you? Have you adopted an agile, API first design strategy that suits your future mobile needs? Are you realizing the benefits of federation logic between server and client?
