Conferences

Last updated: May 28, 2014

At php[architect], we run a number of conferences each year about PHP and web development. These cover the breadth of topics that are of interest to programmers, technical managers, database administrators, IT professionals and more, who deal with creating cutting edge websites and mobile experiences.

Our current conferences are:

 

php[tek]

This conference has occurred annually since 2006. It currently takes place in Rosemont, IL, just outside of Chicago, next to the O’Hare airport. We like to think of tek as a professional PHP conference with a community flair. You will find a high-quality presentations by the brightest experts in the PHP world, coupled with a welcoming and friendly community of attendees and speakers. This is a unique conference in that we have no exclusive parties or secret by-invitation-only rooms. Speakers, organizers, sponsors and attendees mingle and learn from each other as much in the “hallway track”, as in the sessions themselves.

php[world]

A conference introduced in 2014, it’s goal is to bring together the entire world of PHP into one location together.  Whether you are a core PHP developer, a framework developer working on Laravel, Symfony or Zend Framework, or perhaps an application developer using WordPress or Drupal.  The idea is to bring everyone together to learn from each other and make the greater PHP community stronger for it.

Web Summit Series

Finally we have our php[architect] Web Summit Series. These are virtual one-day conferences that we run multiple times throughout the year. Each summit is centered around a central topic, and we bring four experts in that field together to each give a presentation. Attendance is completely online, so you can sit back and learn from top minds from around the world, while relaxing in the comfort of your home (or office).

Other Conferences

While we don’t have any other conferences on the books at the moment, we’d love to hear from you what you like to see us do next.  We’ve held php|works in Atlanta, php|tropics in Cancun, conferences in Canada, one day engagements in Austin, TX, and even once run a PHP cruise.  For a couple years we ran CodeWorks, which was a traveling conference that hit up to 10 cities back to back!  You never know what we might think of next.
