Networking and making connections may not seem that important for a PHP developer, and that is probably why not all coders attend PHP events regularly. But the truth is an international PHP conference is a terrific way to share knowledge and learn the new tricks in your craft.If you have been thinking about attending a top event in PHP development, here are five conferences to add to your PHP event calendar.
This globally recognized PHP conference is held annually and attracts PHP programmers, IT managers, and other professionals, interested in PHP development. This year the event will explore major PHP topics, like scaling an application, Continuous Integration, NoSQL, and others, and will feature speeches, workshops, and an expo. If you want to attend, hurry up: the conference will take place at Maritim Proarte, Berlin, Germany on June 1-4 (which is very soon), but the tickets are still available for sale. Prices vary from €359 to €899, with discounts for PHP development teams.
