PHPCamp is an unconference, and to keep the spirit of unconference alive, we decided that we would not choose any speakers in advance.
We think this will encourage everyone to participate and keep the speaker selection process open and fair. So, if you want to talk about your passion project (as long as it is directly related to PHP) come prepared to give the talk.
PHPCamp is an unconference where anyone can come and participate. This is similar in concept to Barcamp, but it is focused on PHP developers. This is a platform for PHP developers to share their knowledge with each other.
PHPCamp is as much fun as you can make it. Be prepared to lead or participate in a session and ask interesting questions.
If you are a PHP developer, then the answer is very simple, you can meet 100′s of other developers and talk to them about your problems and share the knowledge.
If you want to show off what you’re working on and generally leave your mark on the weekend and fellow developers.
If you are starting out, then this is an excellent chance for you to check if PHP is a good choice for your career or not.
If you work alongside php developers then it will help you understand them better.
Not really, but bringing a laptop could be a good idea. Memory Stick/thumb drive (if you have one: for transfering presentations, demo code, etc). Just be ready to participate.
Perfect, there are many ways you can do it.
- Join the phpcamp google group , and take it on from there
- Blog about the event
- Become a volunteer
- Share your knowledge
- Sponsor the event
Wikipedia states it as
“If at any time during our time together you find yourself in any situation where you are neither learning nor contributing, use your two feet. Go to some other place where you may learn and contribute”
The purpose of this last ‘law’ is to emphasize that no one should sit in sessions that are boring to them; instead, the discussions should only be attended by people who are genuinely interested in the topic at hand.
A few companies were trying to abuse the listed email address. We don’t think the PHPCamp list should be used for job-related spam. Hence, we removed the email address from the general list. If you have any concerns, you can contact any event planner.
That is awesome; if you have taken the pictures during the event and would like to share them with everyone, then tweet the link with hashtag #phpcamp, and we will include them on the website.
You can also share photos related to your preparations to attend PHPCamp.
