#tek09 – Tutorial Session Roundup

Tuesday started off with little fanfare but much anticipation as the tutorial day at php|tek got underway. There were a lot of great tutorials, but I chose to attend the Security Boot Camp by Christian Wenz, and the Subversion tutorial by Lorna Mitchell and Matthew O’Phinney.

Both tutorials were great, with the Subversion tutorial being the more useful of the two for myself. Afterwards we all went out for some deep dish Chicago-style pizza which is an experience in itself. Deep dish Chicago piza is a pizza with a semi-thick crust and about two inches of cheese. The sauce is placed on top of the pizza (rather than between the crust and the cheese) to keep the cheese from drying out. It’s truly an experience.

Today starts the formal conference, and we’ll have some great sessions by Eli White, Chris Shiflett, Elizabeth Smith and others. I can’t wait!
