Recently, php|architect announced that they were extending the early bird pricing for the TEK-X conference being held this year in Chicago, IL. As someone who has been and will be going this year, this conference represnts a great opportunity for anyone who hasn’t gone to a PHP conference to attend one.
There are some good reasons that you should be attending.
Before I attended a conference, I had no idea what others were thinking with regards to PHP. The first big conference I attended was ZendCon and it was there that I discovered an entire world that I knew nothing about – the greater PHP community. But more than that, I discovered Really Smart People(tm) that I could interact with, be friends with, and who shared my passion for technology.
If you’ve put off attending a PHP conference, or simply are on the fence, you should seriously consider attending TEK-X this year. The conference itself has a great lineup, but I also know several people who are going to be there that are bright, talented and very enthusiastic about the PHP world.
That’s a great reason to go.
