We're back! And we are glad to announce that we’ll be organizing the 8th edition of the Dutch PHP Conference, which will be held in Amsterdam from 26th to 28th June 2014. Thursday 26th will be the tutorial day and June 27th and 28th will be the main conference days.

Speakers, the call for papers is now open! We’re looking for high-quality, technical sessions from speakers who can cover advanced topics and keep our demanding audience inspired. The call for papers is open until February 16th. You can send in as many proposals as you like, so start submitting your talks. We’re very excited to see what you can come up with, and we’re looking forward to reading all the different proposals.

The conference schedule has now been posted for php[tek] 2014 – The premier professional PHP conference from the team at php[architect].

Taking place from May 19-23rd in Chicago, IL, USA, the conference will consist of 4 parallel tracks of sessions, a tutorial day, an introduction to PHP day of training, and more.

New to php[tek] this year is the Open Spaces room, where we hope to encourage all sorts of great discussions to take place by our attendees, and larger breaks between sessions as well to make sure that the hallway-track is given as much importance as the sessions themselves.

Our Early Bird Sale is still currently ongoing, but expires on February 15th. So make sure to register soon in order to save $200 off the total price!
