There have been a lot of interesting talks by people from the PHP community. The spectrum of talks covered a lot of ground, from highly technical aspects like how to build PHP extensions to more social or organisational aspects with talks about agile workflow and team communication. Below you find a list of the most remarkable talks:
- Mastering PHP Data Structure 102 by Patrick Allaert
- Step by Step: Making a website fly with Assetic, Varnish and ESI by David Buchmann (Liip)
- Security at scale: Web application security in continuous deployment environments by Zane Lackey
- Symfony CMF by Jacopo Romei
- PHP in 2012: Keynote by PHP father Rasmus Lerdorf
- PHPCR – PHP Content Repository Specification by Lukas Smith (Liip)
- Best Practice in API Design by Lorna Jane Mitchell
- A Practical Look At Symfony2 by Stefan Koopmanschap
- Dependency Management with Composer by Jordi Boggiano
- Designing HTTP Interfaces and RESTful Web Services by David Zülke
- And of course the really entertaining closing keynote of David Coallier
As always at conferences, a lot of interesting talks also happened at the infamous ‘hallway track' and at the social events where we met many interesting people from all Europe and the states. The conference was really well organised by Grusp and the talks were well balanced.
At the social event on the phpDay we made a picture of all attending Liipers. Unfortunately Mirco wasn't around so Derick Rethans (!!) kindly agreed to play the body double for him :-)
The next jsDay/phpDay will take place again next year from May 16th to 19th. We really recommend to go to at least one of the conferences if not both. If you go you'd do well to reserve some time to visit the beautiful city of Verona.
Unfortunately, during the end of our stay two major incidents occurred in Italy which shocked the whole country. Our thoughts go out to all the people affected by those tragedies.
