I'm happy to announce I'll be presenting a talk at the Dutch PHP Conference 2009 in Amsterdam, a yearly PHP conference organized by Ibuildings - The PHP Professionals. This conference is mainly for PHP developers, businesses, governments and educational institutes. But everyone is welcome to experience the warm, fuzzy and very social aspects of PHP and it's community.
My presentation "SPL, not a bridge too far" is actually an attempt to promote the usage of the Standard PHP Library. SPL provides so many features for iteration and array handling, but is not used or looked at by many developers. My goal is to show with examples that SPL can be a very powerful tool, and thus promoting the usage of SPL.
Dutch PHP Conference 2009 is the place to be this year for everyone who's involved with PHP, and the list of speakers is awesome: Matthew Weier O'Phinney, Derick Rethans, Scot MacVicar, Eli White, Juliette Reinders Folmer and Maarten Balliauw (to name a few).
