ZendCon is over, and it’s time for a roundup of the best and worst of ZendCon 2008.

Zend did a fantastic job, and it showed in the organization and execution of the event. ZendCon was one of the best organized conferences I’ve been to in a while. As a presenter I was given (most of) the things I needed, the food was higher quality than I had anticipated, and I really enjoyed the speakers. Some of the best included Chris Shiflett, Eli White, Elizabeth M. Smith and many others.

There were a number of great receptions, including the ZCE reception, the welcome reception and the vendors reception. The only exception was the Yahoo! party, which did not live up to expectations. However, a lot of people seemed to enjoy it, which was great.

I’ll certainly be back at ZendCon. My hope is to make it an annual event; either way, it’s a great time to spend with friends and the PHP community.
