At it’s heart, php[world] 2019 is the Washington D.C. area conference for programmers who use the PHP programming language. We’ve been running annually since 2014.
PHP as a language and a community has been rapidly changing in the last few years. A staggering 83% of the Web runs on PHP, and those websites are built on frameworks such as Drupal, WordPress, Magento, Symfony, Laravel and Laminas (formerly Zend Framework), each of which has their own strong community. We created a conference designed to appeal to all these communities and bring them together to learn from each other and collaborate across projects.
WHAT WE LOOK FOR
We do welcome non-technical proposals as well that will appeal to a developer audience.
SUGGESTIONS FOR GETTING ACCEPTED
We heartily suggest that you submit more than one proposal. Most speakers will be asked to present two talks due to budget. Therefore the more submissions you make, the higher your chances of being accepted. Make sure your talk title and description clearly define what attendees will learn in your session. Use your own voice and express yourself to us personally, and we give precedence to presentations that haven’t been given before.
We will be accepting submissions of regular conference Sessions (1hr long), Workshops (2hrs long), and Training Classes (8hrs long). Sessions & Workshops will run concurrently during the event. Training will take place on Oct 22nd, the day before the conference.
CODE OF CONDUCT
All speakers will be expected to follow our code of conduct. Also you may read our Diversity Statement.
The conference, including workshops & sessions will take place on Oct 23-24. Any full-day training classes will take place on Oct 22nd, the day before the conference.
Economy flights will be provided and booked by us. Hotel accommodation will include 3 nights for speakers, and 4 nights for trainers.
