PHP Appalachia Roundup

PHP Appalachia 2008 came to a close yesterday, concluding four days of fun and friends.

We had great presentations by some of the best names in PHP, including Ben Ramsey, Brian DeShong, Matthew Turland, and lots of others. The evening ended with a RambleCast recording, and a viewing of The Goonies, a low-key end to a great weekend.

Elizabeth Naramore deserves the majority of the credit for a great event, since she spent most of the time and effort putting it on. Keith Casey receives honorable mention for his participation and planning as well.

For new friends and old companions, I’ll miss you until next time. Four days wasn’t nearly enough, but sadly real life must continue on. Thanks to everyone who came out, participated, and made it a great time. I’ll never forget Cal Evans jumping in front of an angry Chris Shiflett (not really…just stepped on broken glass), or Elizabeth Naramore scaring the haunted house guy by screaming “TERRY CHAY! TERRY CHAY!” over and over again. Those memories can’t be bought for any price.

Thanks PHP Appalachia. Until next time…
