#tek09 – Tutorial Session Roundup

Out Of Date Warning

Languages change. Perspectives are different. Ideas move on. This article was published on May 20, 2009 which is more than two years ago. It may be out of date. You should verify that technical information in this article is still current before relying upon it for your own purposes.

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!

Write better object oriented PHP today.

Object oriented programming always leaves you with a headache. What if you could master it instead?
