New season and new challenges! As conference organisers we understand perfectly that you can stay with peleton only when you focus on development. That is why phpCE, as an event aimed at a wide group of PHP programmers from Central Europe, leaves Poland for the first time. We are stronger than before thanks to the organisers of Brno PHP Conference and volunteers from the Pehapkaři group. Together we have been working for the success of this year’s edition and we are inviting you to Prague.

Our Special Guest this year will be Rasmus Lerdorf, The PHP Language Creator.

Conference dates are: October 26-28th, 2018.

About venue: Clarion Congress Hotel Prague was opened in March 2008. Currently, it is one of the largest and most state-of-the-art congress hotels in the Czech Republic. Because of the large space of the congress facilities (up to 2,500 people), cutting-edge technical equipment, a corresponding accommodation capacity and, primarily, a comprehensive offer of services, the hotel became a popular venue for a number of specialist, social and sports events and meetings.

Our speaker package for this year's event includes:

  • Full conference pass,
  • 2 complimentary hotel nights,
  • Additional complimentary night (Thu/Fri) for speakers who decide to take part in our Opening Day for Speakers,
  • Reimbursement of airfare costs for international speakers (arriving outside Czech Rep.),
  • Lunch, dinner, receptions and all other activities included in regular conference.

Our speaker package doesn't include, in particular:

  • travel costs between your home and source airport,
  • travel costs between destination airport and Clarion hotel,
  • accommodation and meals other than listed above.

We are awaiting for your submissions at our website. Remember that C4P closes on Saturday, June 30th.


The teams at php[architect] and One for All Events are excited to announce we have opened up our Call for Speakers for the 5th annual php[world].

This year we are wanting to provide our attendees deep-dive content which teach core lessons about PHP. We also want talks covering advanced topics in applications and frameworks built in PHP (such as Drupal, WordPress, Laravel, Symfony, and Magento). We encourage submissions on technologies crucial to modern Web development such as HTML5, JavaScript, and emerging technologies. Ideas surrounding the entire software life cycle are often big hits for our attendees. Finally, we do welcome non-technical proposals that will appeal to a developer audience.

Like last year, we will be a 2-day conference with concurrent workshops, preceded by two days of training classes. Also like last year, we will have our comprehensive speaker package available which includes:

  • A free conference ticket
  • Round-trip economy airfare booked by us
  • Accommodations at the conference hotel:
    • 3 nights for speakers
    • 5 nights for training teachers

Don't hesitate, the Call for Speakers is only open until July 22nd. So get those submissions in soon, we look forward to hearing from you!

The Santa Catarina PHP user group (PHPSC) announce the 8th edition of the PHPSC Conference, taking place on June 8-9th, 2018 in Florianópolis, Brazil.

This Conference aims to discuss best practices in PHP technology and related areas such as design, development techniques, database, open source, agile methodologies, design patterns, etc.

The event is held each year, preferably in a different city of the state, and it happens in partnership with a local educational institution or company. This year: Unisul.

All of this is in line with the group's goal, which is to cross the state in order to get more people to participate, presenting PHP through the professionals who actually use the language, increasing the technical quality of the information discussed. The conference counts on renowned speakers from outside the state, who are considered a reference in Brazil, for this purpose; but it also includes local speakers.
