ZendCon Day 2 – Through the eyes of Twitter

If you are attending ZendCon vicariously through the twitter feed of friends, you probably noticed as I did that Day 1 was dominated by the themes of geek humor and green elePHPants.Reading the tweets from Day 2 however, you will notice that the “conference halo” is over and people are getting down to the real business of learning, networking, and hacking. Here are the main themes I identified.

Lorna Jane Rocked the house


Apparently, people enjoyed the hackathon.


The music between sessions has apparently gotten better


…and of course, Green ElePHPants!


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 PCs. 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 happily married to wife 1.32, 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 Nomad PHP
