Day 1 sure started with a bang, with Andrei Zmievski doing a phenomenal keynote on the future of PHP. There were great photos, including the (in)famous “ball of nails” quote from Terry Chay. Then it was off to the breakout sessions.
Eli White knocked one out of the park with “Highly Scalable Web Applications” while Wez Furlong did a great job with “Getting It Done.” Liz Smith rocked the house with “SPL To The Rescue,” a talk that was so amazing it was being talked about at the cocktail party that night.
Off to dinner, I had a great conversation with Snipe, and then we went to the cocktail party where we heard presentations of twenty slides, twenty seconds each. A great “first day” (second for those who came to the tutorials) at php|tek.
