Sheraton Westport ChaletOnce again the team behind php[architect] magazine will be hosting our annual php[tek] conference! For this 11th edition of php[tek] we are excited to announce that we are moving to St. Louis!  The new larger venue will allow us to continue to grow this conference, allowing more people from the PHP community to come together for a week of learning and camaraderie!

Stay tuned here and on our mailing list to hear more about the amazing activities we are planning and the unique opportunities that the St. Louis Westport area will offer us.

Keynotes Announced

We are excited to announce our Keynote speakers for this year’s php[tek]!  We are bringing it some of the top PHP community members to really bring home the “community re-union” aspect of this year’s conference.  It will include:

I’m Just Here for the ElePHPants Jeremy Mikola
The New Revolution Samantha Quiñones
Uncle Cal’s Career Advice Cal Evans

Schedule Posted

Over 500 submissions and we could only accept a fraction of that.   We’ve now published the schedule for this year’s conference.  We have an amazing line-up of speakers to present on some of the most advanced topics we could find, while having a great balance of beginner concepts as well.

We are also currently working scheduling our keynotes!  They should be finalized and announced soon.


Call for Speakers is open!

We’d love to invite everyone to submit speaking proposals to this year’s php[tek] 2016 Call for Speakers.  We have a lot of information to help you out on the call for speakers page, as well as information about our generous Speaking Package to help everyone afford to share their knowledge!

Don’t delay to submit soon!  The CfP is only open for 4 weeks, and will close promptly at 23:59:59 UTC on January 16th!
