ZendCon Day 3 – Through the eyes of Twitter

“All things must come to an end.”
  –Chaucer, 1374.

The last day of ZendCon is always bittersweet, and gazing at the Santa Clara Convention Center through our lens of Twitter, it looks like this year was no different. New friends pledging to stay in touch, old friends waving goodbye, and as always, lots of happy developers giving shoutouts to the crew at Zend that worked so hard to make putting on ZendCon so easy.





…and more green ElePHPants!


Everyone was getting into the action, even those not able to attend. The PHP powered API powerhouse Mashery tweeted this offer to all newly minted Zend Certified Engineers.

It’s over…but it’s not

The banners have all been packed away, all the ElePHPants have found new homes, and it is easy to think that ZendCon is over. You can relive some of the high-points by watching the recordings of the keynote speeches. You can find all the recordings over at the “Live Streaming from ZendCon 2012” page. Catch-up on the ones you missed to review the ones you enjoyed.

Whether you were in attendance at ZendCon ’12 or not, we hope to see you next year at ZendCon ’13.

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
