ZendCon 2009 Review

If you're involved with PHP and you haven't heard of ZendCon before, you have been around the wrong croud!

The past week was reserved for the biggest PHP event of the year bringing you the best of the best the open-source and commercial world have to offer developers and businesses. And it rocked, big time!

With a full day of tutorials and three days of top-notch presentations given by people that make things happen in the PHP ecosystem, you got a real bargain for your money.

Besides these brain overloading sessions, Keith Casey, king of the uncon sessions, hand-picked the best sessions rated and presented by the audience itself. And even though the main conference was mindblowing, Keith made sure that people had a hard time choosing between main tracks and uncon sessions. Job well done Keith !!!

I was scheduled for three uncon sessions myself.

On Monday I talked about unit testing with PHPUnit and Zend Framework.

Spl Not A Bridge Too Far phpNW09

This morning I had the honor to speak at the PHP North West (phpNW09) conference in Manchester (UK) about SPL. It was almost a full room and it was wonderful to see and hear people being impressed what SPL can mean for them, so I believe it was a good session.

For those who attended my talk, you can leave your comments and feedback at and be sure to rate the conference itself at
