LoneStarPHP 2014 in review

Last week I returned from LoneStarPHP conference in Addison, Texas. The first thing I noticed flying over the area that all is flat and very extend. Later I heard from Omni Adams, who came to pick me up at the airport, that this was as a protection measure for storms and tornadoes that appear from time to time.

The hotel was Marriott SpringHill Suites Dallas Addison/Quorum Drive which was a very nice hotel. The hotel staff was very friendly, common to the area I was told and had the best feature: non-stop supply of coffee! Already scoring good in my book.

As tradition dictates, all the speakers were invited to a dinner the evening before the conference kicked off. The LoneStarPHP crew arranged something at a traditional BBQ & Grill called "Hard Eight BBQ" which was about an half hour drive away from the hotel.
This was the first time I was at such a place, but I enjoyed the delicious meats they served. Surprising to see that just a bit of meat could fill one up so quick…
