For those who like to do more than just code, we're pleased to announce Ski PHP 2014, which will be held on January 17 and 18, 2014.

We are looking for presentations on a variety of topics, including frameworks, security, front-end, and data. Interested presenters should submit a CFP at https://www.skiphp.com/speak/package. A generous speaker package will be provided for accepted speakers.
