Today was a great day here at the conference. Unfortunately, it is also the last day
Unknown to me, Wez had switched his PDO talk with Lukas’ Bring Your Own PEAR talk, so choosing to sleep in meant that unfortunately I missed one of the sessions I really wanted to go to.
However, that situation was soon rectified with Marcus’ great Happy SPLing talk, by far my favourite talk of the conference. I learned so much and got some great ideas. Unfortunately Marcus didn’t have enough time to cover everything he had, but he took a brief opinion poll and covered the parts that were most wanted.
Then we had one more session which I decided to sit out and talk shop with some great people (Dan Udey, Amy Hoy, David Coallier, Marcus, Ilia) and just generally had some fun.
After a short break (for those attending the talks) we went to the final keynote with Marco, which was great fun, short, to the point and very well done
He also announced that the next conference from php|architect will be in Miami sometime in the spring, most likely April. So look for me there – its just a 6hr drive
Finally he mentioned the Zend Conference in California, and that looks great for the more business end of things with the technical aspects playing a much smaller role. This looks good, though I don’t think I can make it. :/
So, I would like to thank all the great people behind the scenes here and all the speakers for putting on such a good show. I hope everybody had as much fun as I did, it was great to have some many brains in one place, face to face.
