Dedicated PHP Track is New to DrupalCon USA

Posted by on February 26, 2016

We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with the Drupal Association to help plan and organize the dedicated PHP track at this year’s DrupalCon in New Orleans. Our own Heather White is working with Larry Garfield (aka @crell) to identify PHP topics relevant to Drupal developers, review sessions, and select speakers. Having a robust PHP track will help Drupalers “get off the island”, a call-to-action started by Larry that has seen the Drupal project embrace solutions and practices from the greater PHP community. At the same time, it’s an opportunity for PHP developers to see how Drupal 8 embraces modern PHP including Object-Oriented development, Composer integration, and code re-use to provide a world class CMS. This collaboration continues the work we began when we launched php[world], a conference meant to bring together PHP’s disparate communities.

If you’re a speaker, the call for sessions is still open (closes on Feb 29th, see link for exact time). Look for the php[architect] team at this year’s DrupalCon. We look forward to meeting you there.


Oscar still remembers downloading an early version of the Apache HTTP server at the end of 1995, and promptly asking "Ok, what's this good for?" He started learning PHP in 2000 and hasn't stopped since. He's worked with Drupal, WordPress, Zend Framework, and bespoke PHP, to name a few. Follow him on Google+.
