I’ll Be There, Will You?

Well, it looks like I’m going to make it to some conferences this year after all (thanks to an understanding boss). They’re both right there next to each other, so it’ll be good to have it all right there.

First up is this fall’s The Ajax Experience put on by the guys at Ajaxian.com and the No Fluff Just Stuff Java Symposium Series. I’m not going to be speaking or anything, but since I write for the site, I’m going to be helping out with things. It’s running from October 23rd through the 25th up in Boston, Massachusetts, and if it was anything like the other one earlier this year, there’ll be some great speakers and great developers attending.

They’re still looking for speakers for the event, so if you’re up for giving an Ajax-related talk (preferably Ajax and PHP, but it doesn’t matter too much), check out this page for more details and the email address of where to send your talk information.

The next up, of course, is actually later that week – the Zend/PHP Conference and Expo happening out in San Jose, California. Thanks to the kind people organizing the conference, I’ll be one of the “press” attending the event. I’ve also taken out an ad in the conference program, so if you attend you’ll have to look for the PHPDeveloper.org 4th page ad. They haven’t posted the list of speakers yet, but I know it’ll be some good stuff – it always is. The tough part will be choosing which talks to attend.

I might also be doing some shameless self-promotion while I’m there. I was thinking about making up some shirts (something black with a simple logo-based design) to pass out to those that would want them. Think anyone would be interested? At the very least, it’d be fun to wear one myself during the conference. I’d stick out pretty well then, I guess…

Anyway, hope to see some of you out there at either of these conferences. I shouldn’t be too hard to find if you want to stop me and say “hi” while you’re there. I love meeting people that like PHPDeveloper.org….

    I’ll be at ZendCon – would be cool to meet you. I’m sure I’m not the only one who would wear a PHPDeveloper.org shirt. :-)

    Oh – I want a t-shirt!… I say make the t-shirt red with white lettering please… but if you have to – I will take a white one with red lettering. To match the site colors of course :)

    [...] So, remember the t-shirt idea I mentioned before for the conference? Well, I’ve thrown something together for it and wanted to get some feed back on it from all of you lovely readers out there. Here’s the thumbnails. [...]
