I just wanted to take a moment to promote the PHP Unconference to be hosted this year by Zend during the Zend/PHP Conference & Expo in Burlingame, CA. The Chairperson for the PHP Unconference ‘07 is none other than the PHP community’s very own Patrick Reilly. He’ll be in charge of making sure things run smoothly and that the open community aspect of the unconference is maintained.
Patrick writes this on the Zend Conference wiki page for the PHP Unconference:
When was the last time an event challenged your assumptions, and made you think?
The PHP Unconference is a way to bring people who have a shared interest in PHP together. It could be just to explore interest in a common theme or it could be to do work together to accomplish a goal.
The PHP Unconference is being hosted by Zend Technologies Ltd. as a community space that it is sponsoring and helping create.
In addition to running the unconference, Patrick has created a #zendcon IRC channel for all attendees of the Zend/PHP Conference & Expo. This channel will serve as an excellent community gathering place during the conference to chat about presentations, ideas, and where to get drinks. It’s located on the Freenode network, so stop by and say “hi.”
